Cross to bear

Don't know what they did, but it must have been something bad, because this is surely God's punishment:

The Topeka Fire Department is investigating a small fire today outside of a church whose members protest at soldier's funerals.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports on its Web site that a fence and garage at Westboro Baptist Church became engulfed in flames early today.

Guess they were small sins, though. Fred was probably just cross-dressing or something.

Perhaps it was a warning shot...

But given what happened to St. Mary's here in the Fort back in 1993, how do we explain that one?

God works in mysterious ways. The fire at St. Mary's was caused by lightning, if I recall correctly. Nothing mysterious about a tall building being struck by lightning. If anything, the mystery is how the church lasted as long as it did.

Westboro haven't yet paid the $5 million they lost in the trial over Marine Lance Corporal Matthew Snyder. I'd like to see Snyder's family put the Westboro building on the auction block, and grab any insurance money that's coming.
