10:39 AM ET 03.29 | March Madness is known for the absolute insanity and craziness that takes place on the court, but now a new kind of crazy will be happening at the Final Four. We should have predicted the absurd Westboro Baptist Church following would make their way into the headlines again with another major event about ready to take place. The Westboro Baptist Church is coming to March Madness. That's right, the Westboro Baptist Church is going to be picketing outside of the Final Four in in Atlanta next weekend. Whatever their reasoning for protesting the Final Four, I think we all know that Fred Phelps and company are just upset Wichita State, La Salle and Florida Gulf Coast busted their brackets.

Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

"America is mad upon her idols and her college sports are one of them," the church announced on its website.

This group is from Topeka Kansas. This isn't their first trip to protest something in Atlanta. The money they spend on travel and accommodations could be beter used to feed the hungry or heal the sick. That would at least be bibliccal.

I've never understood religious protesters. They should put their energy into good works and make a difference where they can be most effective and uphold a positive image.

When digital photography had advanced and Time Magazine ran those amazing photos of embryos ... it said more, without taking a stance or saying a word, than all the abortion protesting in the world. Just sayin sometimes it's better to just shut up ...

Agreed. I just wish it was our lot to deal with these idiots instead of leaving it to God to handle them.

Unfortunately, this group and the word 'biblical' rarely cross in the same sentence. They are all about publicity for themselves. They wouldn't dare lower themselves to helping those that are less fortunate.

This quote from the story made me laugh:
