The Westboro Baptist Church hates Catholics, Muslims, Hindus, Jews, Michael Moore and homosexuals. But you know who they seem to not mind so much? Ozzy Osbourne.
The hate group was in Washington yesterday, where the Supreme Court was hearing arguments on whether the church's practice of picketing military funerals with anti-gay placards is protected under free speech. While protesting outside the court, the Westboroians launched into a slightly re-worded version of Osbourne's classic, "Crazy Train," updated to fit their anti-gay rhetoric: "You're going straight to hell on your crazy train." Ozzy was pissed: "I am sickened and disgusted by the use of 'Crazy Train' to promote messages of hate and evil by a 'church,'" he told E! Online.
The hate group is planning to return to NYC on Monday, to protest outside Jewish schools and temples in Kensington and Midwood, Brooklyn, and in Greenwich Village, as well as at a gala for a gay and lesbian support group in Tribeca. Their miserable visit to the city will likely be marked with plenty of counter-protests as well: "This is a fringe group. These guys are crazy and the schools are nervous...I have to be there. There's a lesson to be learned that there are haters out there," said Assemblyman Dov Hikind.
