Westboro Baptist Church promises picket of shooting victims
With all of the people Topeka, Kansas' Westboro Baptist Church hates -- homosexuals, dead soldiers, Britney Spears -- it should be considered unsurprising that they hate immigrants, too.
In the wake of a horrific shooting in Binghampton, New York which targeted an immigrant community centre, the church has announced that it will protest at the funerals of the victims.
"God sent the shooter!" exclaims a press release from the WBC. "Thank God for executing on his promises - dead bodies everywhere!"
"You Turned the World Over to Violent Fags, and you ALL Worship the Filthy Bloody Doomed-american Fag Flag," the release continues. "Now They're Going Home in Body Bags!"
Jiverly Wong, 41, killed 14 people from eight different countries, then killed himself.
Having never encountered a tragedy they didn't love exploiting for the purpose of spreading their religious invective, it's not shocking that the WBC would embrace this opportunity.
The only think shocking is that they didn't follow the Taliban's lead and claim responsibility for the attack.
