Westboro Baptist Church To Picket "Adulteress" Betty Ford's Funeral; WARNING: Not Appropriate For Family Viewing

Posted: Updated:

EXAMINER.COM - Westboro Baptist Church, the group that has given organized religion a black eye by picketing the funerals of fallen servicemen and slain children, has announced it will protest memorial services honoring former first lady Betty Ford.

In a press release on its website—GodHatesFags.com—the fringe group explains that Ford, who died last Friday at 93, was an "adulteress," and they quote scripture to prove it:

‘And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.' (Mark 10:12)

The reference is to Ford's earlier marriage to William Warren whom she divorced prior to tying the knot with the late president, Gerald Ford.

But, according to the church's statement, Ford's adultery was but the tip of the iceberg:

She couldn't wait to have an audience with a reporter to titter about premarital sex, and how much she loved to teach it to her daughters. The trashy reporters encouraged her to say more! So she urged all the women of this doomed foul nation to engage in extra-marital sex. Then she pushed for abortion, because when you teach a nation's women to be whores, it's inevitable pregnancies will inconvenience the selfish strumpets! That is the legacy of Betty Ford.

    KHQ.COM - Mid August is about the time that we start to see spiders come into our homes, particularly the hobo spider. August and September is mating season for the hobo and that means you may be seeing more funnel-like webs in and around your home. Males are on a mission to find a female which is why they are a lot more active at this time.>>
