Haters plan to picket George Carlin's funeral



Tbdgeorgecarlin062608 The Juice* continues to mourn George Carlin's untimely passing, since we have obviously been influenced by his culture-bashing ways, but we find it hilarious that he manages to stir things up even in death.

The Westboro Baptist Church -- the highly-opinionated activist group that is best known not for its piousness but rather for being the jackholes that demonstrate the funerals of American soldiers with signs like "God Hates Fags" and "Thank God for IEDs" -- plans to picket Carlin's funeral, according to a faxed press release that landed in our basket here this morning.

"George Carlin is in Hell. Deal with it," the release reads. "You will soon join him. America is Doomed. We will picket George Carlin's funeral. Amen."

The Kansas-based group calls Carlin a "filthy blasphemer, obscene potty-mouth skeptic, agnostic, and profane atheist'" who "made lots of money making fun of God." That's why we loved him!

The Church, which bills itself as touting "religious opinion and Bible commentary on current events"  has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. We would have never guessed.

Carlin will apparently be joined in hell by "lying propagandist" Keith Olbermann and "fellow filth-monger" Jerry Seinfeld. And The Juice*, we suspect.
