Ozzy Osbourne is pissed about church using his song


Ozzy Osbourne (2010) "I am sickened and disgusted by the use of 'Crazy Train' to promote messages of hate and evil by a 'church'," singer OZZY OSBOURNE said in response to news that Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church used lyrics from his song at events surrounding Tuesday's (10/6/10) Snyder v. Phelps Supreme Court hearing. An attorney - a daughter of the church's founder, along with her sister - paraphrased lyrics from Osbourne's 'Crazy Train' at a post-Supreme Court hearing press conference in Washington D.C.

The church is described by the Wall Street Journal (10/6/10) as a "tiny Kansas church…[that]…preaches that US deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq are punishment for American's tolerance of homosexuality and abortion." As the Examiner.com noted (10/6/10) of the church, "their flamboyant demonstrations at the funerals of non-gay service members, using the events to highlight their belief that military deaths overseas are justified punishment for US tolerance of homosexuality. ('You're Going to Hell,' 'Thank God for Dead Soldiers,' and 'God Hates You' are popular Westboro slogans.)."
