A sickening religious cult are planning to picket the upcoming public memorial service for Ronnie James Dio.

Metal Hammer are both sickened and outraged to learn that a Baptist church are planning to protest at the funeral of Ronnie James Dio.

This disgusting plan from the Westboro Baptist Church, who have already made a name for themselves in the States through their homophobic hatred and picketing of funerals, is advertised on their website’s schedule (which carries the url GodHatesFags.com).

These mis-informed, ill-guided, moronic fuckwits wrongfully accuse Ronnie of Satan worship and encouraging violence of every form, in a post filled with hatred and ridiculousness.

Should you wish to read the post in full, we’ve provided it at the bottom of the page. Just be aware that it carries enough bullshit nonsense within it to make Gandhi want to kick off.

Blabbermouth report that this Kansas-based cult last year filed a legal brief that confirms that they “believe it is their duty to protest and picket at certain events, including funerals, to promote their religious message: ‘That God’s promise of love and heaven for those who obey him in this life is counterbalanced by God’s wrath and hell for those who do not obey him.’”

There isn’t a word in any language that sums up these low-life scumbags so we’ll stick with this one – cunts.

Here is their ‘brief’ in full:

“WBC to picket this public memorial to remind you who worship that old Serpent, Satan, that your time is very short.

“You know 67 year old, Satan-worshiping (or at least one of their enablers) Ronnie James Dio (of showing his devil horns to the world each time he goes in public) Black Sabbath fame is dead, right? We’ll be there!

“Just because the chances of any of God’s elect being amongst this group of heavy metal sycophants is slim to none does not mean they should not get some good words.

“Yes, it is true that Ozzy Osbourne did “accidentally” bite off the head of a bat, but THAT is the least of their sins (little nasties!), they currently do not do that, but they throw raw meat to the audience and encourage violence of EVERY FORM!

“Here you have the list of admitted sins of this now dead and in hell pervert:

“1) He hates his neighbor(s) starting with Ozzy Osbourne, and continuing down to his pornography star niece Gen Padova!

“2) He hates God. Pay especial attention to the fact that he changed his original sir name from Padova to Dio, which means God in Italian.

“3)Ronnie the simpleton enabled, and encouraged Sorceries: everything he was about including the little finger horn thing (he got this from his mother which is an incantation to ward off the “evil eye”) to the drugs, bloody raw meat and his fellowship with those pentagon necklace wearing freakish band members.

“Yes, Ronnie James Padova (NOT DIO) is currently residing in hell. When all those who worship him and his false gods meet him in hell it will be just like this: Isaiah 2:12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: Isaiah 14:11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.

“Praise God all ye, His people. The Great Day of the Lord draws nigh. AMEN!”
Really pissed off right now. I wish to be there that day, so that after I'm done with them, i will have to scrape the religious ass off of my boots.
