Atheists to Blame for Christian Fundamentalists

Obviously:

They can’t be real Christians. They must be part of an atheist cabal.

Their goal? To undermine churches. To give religion a black eye. To plant in the minds of the young a twisted and evil view of Christianity.

How else to explain the perverse tactics of the Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church, whose members travel the country to picket soldiers’ funerals with a message of hate?

I would explain it by saying that when you have mentally unstable people who really believe that unabashedly hateful writings such as Leviticus is divinely inspired all leads to people protesting funerals, cutting off their own hands to microwave, or flying planes into buildings.
