Lest you think they’re doing this for moral reasons, stop right there:

An anti-gay church group says it will not picket the funeral of the 9-year-old girl killed in Tucson in exchange for air time on two radio stations, The Topeka Capital-Journal reports, but will go ahead with pickets at the funeral of a federal judge killed in the attack.

The report comes as the Arizona legislature has unanimously passed emergency legislation aimed at keeping the protesters at bay at the funerals of the victims of Saturday’s shootings.


The leader of the group, Fred Phelps, has praised the shootings in Tucson as part of “God’s revenge.”

Although spokeswoman Shirley Phelps-Roper confirms the decision not to protest at the funeral of 9-year-old Christina-Taylor Green, the organization has not removed its protest call from its website.

Scum of the earth, truly.
