Wednesday, the funeral for country music legend George Jones is being held at the Grand Ole Opry and CMT is carrying it live.
There’s also a chance that the twisted souls at the Westboro Baptist Church may show up and form a picket line. (They’re the ones who protest funerals for dead soldiers, and claim that God hates gays.)
Why? Because they’re media-hungry scumbags who crave attention. Officially, however . . . it’s because George Jones led a lifestyle that did not meet with their approval.
They issued press release calling George a “drunkard,” and said that he, quote “Used his talent to glorify himself and engage in much adultery.”
As I said, it’s not certain that they’re going to be there. Yesterday, Westboro spokesperson Margie Phelps told the Tennessean, quote, “It’s not fully decided at this moment. [It’s] about 80/20.”
