Church group targets Austin GP

NEWS STORY
15/11/2012

A group of religious fanatics plan to picket the Circuit of the Americas this weekend in order to... "remind this nation that God hates the wicked people of this land of vain idolaters and that they shall be turned into Hell".

The infamous Westboro Baptist Church faces a busy weekend as, other than the Grand Prix, its flock is due to picket the Grace United Church of Christ in Abilene, St. John's Episcopal Church in Abilene, the First United Methodist Church in Abilene, the Emmanuel Church (Methodist) in Abilene, and gigs in Kansas City featuring Bruce Springsteen and Aerosmith.

Explaining, the reason for the picket, of which there have been 49,254 to date, on its website, the group proclaimed:

"WBC will picket Formula 1 racing at The Circuit of The Americas in Austin, TX to remind this nation that God hates the wicked people of this land of vain idolaters and that they shall be turned into Hell.

These sporting events resemble the patriotic worship-the-flag pep rallies masquerading as soldier's funerals in that this Bible-ignorant fools worship these race car drivers like they are little gods! Shame on these people for worshiping these athletes instead of following the plain commandments of their God.

They ought to obey today before it is too late. WBC knows they will not, never the less, we will kindly warn them to flee the wrath to come. These are the last days of all, Doomed America. Wake up before you find yourselves cast into the deep pit of endless fire!"

That will teach Kimi and Seb to swear on the podium.
