    it was posted on their twitter account saying it is because he never gave god any glory. this is from the kings of making god look horrible.
    Best of all they used a iphone to post it.

    Of course he didn't. He was a buddhist.

    I hope his funeral and place of burial will be kept secret. But somehow i doubt it. Also it's sad that he never lived to see the new apple campus in person.

    That is really sad. :(
    I doubt that any details will be released to the public. He was a very private person.

    I agree, we're using our Bunker Busters on the wrong people.

    What is wrong with these people... do they just like inspiring outrage in the average citizen in order to receive attention?

    they are martyrs and love the role and they absolutely love the attention. but they also follow a real mental case. The poor children are taught to hate from birth.

    This is a fact of life when one is a high profile CEO of a business like Apple. Like it or not, welcome to circa 2011.

    They might be within the first amendment to the Constitution, but that doesn't acquit them from being ****ing *******s.

    Westboro Baptist Church is full of lawyers just wanting to sue anyone that threatens them at their "protests."

    Organize a counter protest with leather-clad bikers or something to surround them.

    Textbook example of "irony."

    You may think you're kidding, but I'm seen some leather boys from the Castro who could make a Hell's Angel soil his Harley. :cool:

    I would if I lived closer. But surely with the money that Jobs' family now has they will be able to keep his burial/ceremony completely secret. Not to mention, Steve does not seem like the type to want to be buried.

    they have had counter protests and they have blocked them from getting close they have surrounded them with 10 banners. but what works best is to ignore them they hate that worse then anything else. if we all ignored them they would be gone and broke in a year or two.

    I find the WBC quite amusing.

    Their placards have no power over the non religious. What do I care what their imaginary friend likes or does not like?

    Steve and his family are buddhist. I'd hope that this meaningless distraction does not cause them any distress.

    Who'd have thought it could be so easy?
