The Westboro Baptist Church is claiming “God sent the shooter” to Newtown, Connecticut for their support of gay people and same-sex marriage equality. The WBC, also known by their nickname, “God Hates Fags,” runs through several major mass shootings in a vile, violent video not for the weak of heart.
As usual, the Westboro Baptist Church, a certified anti-gay hate group, claims America is evil and depraved, “impudent” and “self indulgent,” and God is punishing the country for ignoring Him.
The video also blames the shooting on America’s all but unanimous rejection of the
Westboro Baptist Church. “You have shot at Westboro Baptist Church and now God is shooting at you.”
On Friday, the Westboro Baptist Church promised to picket Newtown, Connecticut after Friday’s shooting. Now, Anonymous is taking credit for hacking the WBC’s websites, which have been down since yesterday.
In July, hours after the tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado, leaders of hate groups began to use the massacre, which left twelve dead — including a six-year old girl — and 50 injured, to demonize and attack gay people.
The WBC pointed to a month-old gay pride parade in Colorado and falsely claimed it was to blame for the massacre.
