Quotes

Accompanied by a full rock band, Shirley croons hellish hits from Westboro's parody catalogue of songs like "Death in Your Window," and "Rumor Has It God Don't Love You Christians No More."
...When asked what keeps him so grounded despite being a massive rock star, Grohl said "having kids that don't f***ing care that you're a rock star. My kids don't give a shit if I'm in the Foo Fighters. They're like 'Daddy, I need a smoothie -- now!’”"
...school and struggling with a group of mean girls and confessed to my mom I wanted to put snakes in their lockers, I remember my mom telling me, "How people treat you is their karma. How you react to it is yours."
"After the show, Kristof, Affleck, Maher, and I continued our discussion. At one point, Kristof reiterated the claim that Maher and I had failed to acknowledge the existence of all the good Muslims who condemn ISIS, citing the popular hashtag #NotInOurName. In response, I said: 'Yes, I agree that all condemnation of ISIS is good. But what do you think would happen if we had burned a copy of the Koran on tonight's show? There would be riots in scores of countries. Embassies would fall In response to our mistreating a book, millions of Muslims would take to the streets, and we would spend the rest of our lives fending off credible threats of murder. But when ISIS crucifies people, buries children alive, and rapes and tortures women by the thousands – all in the name of Islam – the response is a few small demonstrations in Europe and a hashtag.' I don't think I'm being uncharitable when I say that neither Affleck nor Kristof had an intelligent response to this. Nor did they pretend to doubt the truth of what I said."
