My thoughts are with all the people in South Korea affected by the tragic sinking of the ferry Sewol yesterday.

Let’s hope at least some of the missing are still alive, and will be saved.

I personally just ignore Westboro Baptist Church at this point because there’s really no point in giving them attention.

I usually ignore them too, but this is an exception. I’m a huge auto racing fan, so if they’re going to display their bigotry at one of the biggest races of the year…I’m calling them out for it.

what a bunch of twats.

Bigots is probably a more appropriate word to call them, but we definitely share the same sentiment.

You don’t fucking mess with Jim Nabors singing “Back Home Again in Indiana” at the Indy 500.

But if some of you can spread the word about these horrible people from the Westboro Baptist Church that are planning to protest Jim Nabors at the Indy 500 because he’s gay by reblogging the link, it would be appreciated. Bigots need to be called out for their hate.
