Westboro Baptist Church Confirms They Will Picket SLAYER Guitarist Jeff Hanneman's Memorial

Posted by on May 17, 2013 at 11:48 am

We knew this was coming, they just had to confirm it. At next week's celebration of Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman's life, the Westboro bapitist church will stage a protest.

The Church has been adomoment in getting publicity for itself in the wake of this tragedy, saying they plan to sing their parody of "Crazy Train" next Thursday.

In a perverse way, I am sort of looking forward to the near-riot that will ensue featuring drunken Slayer fans taking out their volatile hostility on the Church. Granted the Church is within their Constitutional right to picket the funeral, but I don't think they have ever been to a Slayer show. This can end up really bad. For everybody's sake, I sure hope there is ample security.

It's highly likely I will not be posting about WBC anymore, I've given them enough publicity.

UPDATE: The Westboro Baptist Church no-showed the memorial. Read our full recap right here.
