Are we in bizarro world?

The Westboro Baptist Church--you know, Fred Phelps and friends--are going to "preach" at Jerry Falwell's funeral. Why? Among other things, it seems they didn't like Rev. Falwell's "God loves everyone" doctrine.
I get it--they're talking about the other Jerry Falwell, the nice one, not the one who said feminists, pagans and homosexuals are the reason the WTC isn't there anymore. Besides, he was apparently an Arminian*, and you know how they are.

Pam's House Blend has an image of the press release. Go there if you must read this sort of bullshit for yourself. Go ahead, you know you want to, and this way you don't actually have to go to the WBC site.

*No, he didn't change his name from Falwellian. Seriously, I have read this Arminian/Calvinist thing before, as well as other seeming minor doctrinal differences between various schools of thought and frankly, I have never figured out what the heck the big deal is. That's what happens when you don't have a good grounding in Christian theology. That's just one more thing that makes me a prime example of the type of person Rev. Falwell (the nice one) said makes this country great.
