These people are going to hell! It's hard to believe that there are actual people like this. The Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas has put out a press release condemning Heath Ledger for his role in 'Brokeback Mountain.' They are even planning on picketing Heath's funeral in Australia. This is such a sad time for Heath's family and friends that I can't believe they have to deal with something as backwards as this. Feel free to call these A holes to tell them how you feel. Their phone # is 785-273-0325.
We actually just called these people and spoke with Jonathan Phelps, the attorney for Fred Phelps, who is responsible for writing the press release pertaining to Heath Ledger's death and picketing his funeral. Jonathan confirmed that three people will picket Ledger's funeral to prove to the attendees that by showing up, they hate God and his fellow men.
Jonathan referred to the press release as "beautiful", and even had his daughter Jill confirm that Fred, the pastor of Westboro Baptist Church, was indeed the author of the release. Jonathan also informed me of a telling documentary about these people, which Louis Theroux of the BBC conducted. Pay close attention to what the young boy has to say at 4:05.
