Ozzy is pissed at Westboro Baptist Church hate breeders

Ozzy Osbourne is not happy about his music being associated with Westboro Baptist Church, and he’s issued an impassioned statement expressing how appalled he is that the church’s paraphrased lyrics from his hit, ‘Crazy Train,’ at a Supreme Court hearing.

“I am sickened and disgusted by the use of ‘Crazy Train‘ to promote messages of hate and evil by a ‘church,'”Ozzy said in response to news that the his lyrics were borrowed and corrupted for events surrounding Tuesday’s Snyder v. Phelps Supreme Court hearing. Apparently, an attorney, who is the daughter of Westoboro Baptist Church’s founder, along with her sister, paraphrased the Prince of Darkness’ words at a press conference in Washington D.C.

The church is described by the Wall Street Journal as a “tiny Kansas church … [that] preaches that U.S. deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq are punishment for American’s tolerance of homosexuality and abortion.”

We just think these hate mongers are a bunch of whacks who need to learn to love more and hate less. But sometimes you just can’t change stupid.
