Our Intrepid Heroine

I'm a multitasking, knitting, cooking, voraciously-reading library worker who wants to spread her bibliomania as far as possible.

Banished: Surviving My Years in the Westboro Baptist Church - Lauren Drain, Lisa Pulitzer

I picked this book up largely because I was hoping to learn why the WBC pickets military funerals, funerals of victims of violent tragedies, and other assorted events entirely unrelated to their core message of "god hates gay people."


I did not learn this. Instead, I learned that the WBC will picket any event, at any time, to spread "the word of god," which is apparently that God hates us all and wants us to die. I finished the book still unsure of why this is the case.
