He has every right to be. We would surely be ashamed to be associated in any way with such homophobes!
Ozzy Osbourne released a stern and scathing statement this morning after he learned the Westboro Baptist Church, notorious for their hatred of gay Americans and soldiers, used one of his songs to prove a point about their cause.
On Wednesday, a group of the church's devoted followers performed Ozzy's song Crazy Train on the steps of the United States Supreme Court. The group was protesting the court's ruling to have them pay a father of a fallen solider $5 million after the group bombarded the funeral with their messages of hate.
Ozzy explains that he is "disgusted" that these people are using his music to help spread their ignorance and in his statement, he adds:
"I am sickened and disgusted by the use of 'Crazy Train' to promote messages of hate and evil by a 'church.'"
Well said. What God would want his people to be so narrow-minded and heartless???
