Living Dead 1, Brain Dead 0

The shit stains of the Westboro Baptist Church were humilated last Friday when one of their protests was upstaged by a counter demonstration by zombies.

Demonstrators dressed as zombies gathered at a military base in Washington state to counter the Westboros. After members of the controversial Kansas-based church announced plans to picket Joint Base Lewis-McChord, near Seattle, 27-year-old Melissa Neace decided to organize a counter-protest, launching a Facebook group titled "Zombie'ing Westboro Baptist Church AWAY from Fort Lewis!"

"We wanted to turn something negative around, into something people could laugh at and poke fun at," Neace told the News Tribune. "It was the easiest way to divert attention from something so hateful."

About 300 counter-protesters showed up in varying degrees of zombie garb, far outnumbering the picketers from Westboro. Just eight protesters from the Westboros  showed up. "I think that their message is very hateful, and Jesus was not a hateful person. He loved everybody," one of the counter-protestersSaid.

While it is unclear why Westboro Baptist Church targeted the DuPont military base for its latest effort, the group frequently pickets military funerals. The group believes that deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq are God's punishment for the United States' tolerance of homosexuality. Last year, the group announced it would "quadruple" protest efforts after the Supreme Court ruled that such demonstrations are protected by the First Amendment.

I don't understand the Westboros. They are a vile bunch of scumbags and clearly insane

Even shit stains will think twice before joining hands with Westboro Baptist Church vermin, I think.

And yeah, it was a good move by zombies. Cool.
