Australian comic Adam Hill blasts Westboro Church over Robin Williams

“A person died, his family are mourning. It’s not about you, dickhead.”

— Australian comedian Adam Hill, responding to news that the notoriously anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church intend to picket the memorial service for actor Robin Williams. Hill blasted the church in a segment on his British talk show, stating that if they truly believed in standing up to those they perceive as threatening the Christian way of life, they’d fly to Iraq and “[picket] the people threatening to behead Christians if they don’t convert.”
