The Westboro church is sending a group to Tacoma this weekend to picket a funeral.

I don't know if anyone has been following the story of Josh Powell, his missing wife and the recent murder-suicide of himself and his two boys. It's made national headlines, but being nearly in the epicenter of events I have no idea how much information has been spread around.

It's a truly horrible story that reaches depths of such evil that there really are no words to describe it. For anyone interested, here's a handy timeline that glosses over the particularly nasty bits.

The funeral for the boys is being held this weekend, literally around the corner from our house and a Westboro contingency will be there. They claim that the boys (who were only 5 and 7) died because God is punishing us for our imminent legalization of same-sex marriage.

They have their own stalkers now. Hopefully they can show up, and in force, to keep them from disrupting the funeral.

I'm letting everyone know right now:

1) I'm being cremated so you guys can't do horrid things to my body, especially since I'll be doing them to you.

2) To remember me properly, beat the #^%$#!! out of these wackos with an inch of their lives. It's what I would have done. They don't even have to be protesting my funeral for you to do this.

3) THERE WILL BE A WAKE. A NAKED DRUG-FUELED ORGY WAKE.
