God Hates Reason

Excited atheists wait for Pastor Phelps
to come with his carefully crafted signs.
Later this month, my fellow freethinkers have a chance to gather together at the Reason Rally, which bills itself as "the largest secular event in world history." Maybe so, but wasn't the Russian Revolution pretty big? Anyway, not everyone there will be of the secular persuasion, or even of the lucid persuasion:

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church were invited to the Reason Rally by Jim Klawon, Deputy Vice President of Administration of the National Atheist Party, via a letter sent to Pastor Fred Phelps. After receiving this letter, Megan Phelps-Roper, on Twitter, wrote, “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God” Ps14:1 Here's lookin' at you, @ReasonRally!Your [unwarranted] pride is your destruction. Dear @ReasonRally: How gracious of you! We accept your invitation & will picket your parade of fools 3/24. Love,WBC.” [more]

The "Love, WBC" line just kills me.
