In a not too surprising pair of coordinated press releases, Shirley Phelps-Rogers of Westboro Baptist Church and Rev. Terry Jones of Dove World Outreach Center today announced plans to merge into a single hate filled church of ignorant lunatics. The merge will become official when Westboro joins them in the upcoming "International Burn the Quran Day" event.
The two organizations came to know each other when Westboro joined them earlier this year in a protest of the election of Gainsville's openly gay mayor.
Phelps-Rogers indicated that while they were joining forces to protest the Satan worshiping perverted sodomites and lesbians, the Dove World portion of the new church was still going straight to hell because "they're still too much like Pentecostals."
In other religion news, the Vatican today announced that the Catholic Church will be merging with the North American Man Boy Love Assiciation (NAMBLA) and plans to ordain all of its members.
