Westboro Baptist Church Now Actually Going Off the Rails on a Crazy Train (VIDEO)

Jeff Hanneman funeralMembers of the Westboro Baptist Church — generally regarded as raving fundamentalist wingnuts — are apparently planning to outdo their own lunacy by disrupting the funeral of late Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman by singing a parody of Ozzy Osbourne‘s “Crazy Train.”

Yep, it’s bonkers.

The radical Kansas-based church has made headlines for years with their noisy “God Hates Fags” picketing sessions and by protesting at the funerals of American soldiers killed at war.

Just when you thought they couldn’t get any more preposterous, the Westboro devout have announced that they will picket the funeral of the mighty Slayer axeman, who died last week from liver failure at the age of 49.

You can bet that Slayer fans will not be friendly.

The church’s rationale? It’s hard to know, judging by their tweet about it:

It won’t be the first time the cuckooo flock has hollered the song “at full voice” (they performed it at a Supreme Court hearing that examined their right to yell nasty and stupid things in public).

The revised lyrics to Westboro’s version of Ozzy’s 1980 hit include lyrics like:

Amazing, that’s how God rolls
Millions of people, drowning in woe
Crazy, it’s much too late
To speak about love, when you brought on is hate
Crying about your feelings, or your sin, no shame

You’re going straight to hell, on a crazy train
You’re going straight to hell, on a crazy train   

God is not been sleeping, he’s gonna bring the pain
It’s time for your final ride on this crazy train!

Here they are hollering the tune outside a Godsmack concert:

Ozzy, understandably, is not pleased: “I am sickened and disgusted by the use of ‘Crazy Train’ to promote messages of hate and evil by a ‘church,’” he said after the Westboro rendition first surfaced.

When Ozzy Osbourne is the sane, rational voice on an issue, you know the opposing side has gone next-level bananas.
