Wow... This Is Amazing.

This 1 hour documentary by BBC filmmaker Louis Theroux is amazing. He lives with the Westboro Baptist Church for what seems like a month, trying to discover what makes them tick. In case you don't know, WBC is behind the picketing of funerals of dead soldiers, and will soon be picketing the campus of Virginia Tech, explaining that everyone is feeling God's rage because America is doomed for being okay with gays and being a sinful nation. It's really a fascinating watch, but horrifying at the same time.

The irony is, that if they did what they are doing in just about any other country, they'd be in jail, or maybe even dead. With freedom of speech comes the annoyance of jerks like these, I guess.
