Phelps' "God Hates Fags" Westboro cult heading to Zion, IL Sunday

Hmm....maybe they're feeling the seems Rev. Fred Phelps' anti-Gay Westboro cult (I refuse to call them a church) is not giving as much advance notice of it's anti-American pickets of soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Afraid of counter protests, Fred?

For the second day in a row, Phelps' and his God Hates Fags whackos are giving just 24-hour notice of it's next picket.

For the uninitiated, Kansan Fred Phelps' celebrates the death of each American soldier killed in action in the Middle East; he believes each combat death is actually divine punishment against the United States for our acceptance of gay rights.

The picture above is from Friday's last-minute protest of a soldier's funeral in Missouri.

This is what Zion, a modest suburb located just south of the Wisconsin border, can expect Sunday. That afternoon, the funeral of Army 1st Lt. David Giaimo will take place, and Phelps' cult hopes to ruin it.
