Add Ozzy Osbourne to the list of people who are not happy with the Westboro Baptist Church. The group, infamous for staging anti-gay protests at military funerals and chanting things like “You’re going to hell,” played one of Ozzy’s songs on the steps of the US Supreme Court. “I am sickened and disgusted by the use of 'Crazy Train' to promote messages of hate and evil by a 'church,'” Osbourne said in a statement.

The group seems to like singing, “You're going straight to hell on your crazy train," E! reports, but PopEater notes that such a line doesn't actually exist in the song—although, ironically, the line "Learn how to love, and forget how to hate" does.
