Tragedies seem to be a wonderful time for the religious right to spout their propaganda.
While Phelps may be the one making headlines for his vitrolic comments, he's far from the only one. Others like Brother Jed, Pat Robertson, and the rest of their ilk aren't far behind the Phelps family.
The Virginia Tech shootings have brought out another round of idiocy from them.
PZ Myers has already seen pundit Debbie Schlussel blaming Muslims. As soon as it was revealed that the shooter was Asian, she attempted to use that to reenforce her xenophobia.
Over at Answers in Genesis Ken Ham blames atheists and evolution.
Brother Jed was on campus again yesterday with a flock of his followers. One of them claimed that the students that died, did so because they didn't believe in Jesus. As if belief could stop the bullets.
EDIT: Looks like Phelps will be protesting at the funerals of those that died at Virginia Tech.
