Westboro Baptist Church: ‘God Sent The Shooter’ To CT For Supporting Gays

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.

The WBC is proof that freedom of speech and religion is live and well in America. Thank you Youtube for removing this filth. Can't cities pass laws against protests such as limits on how close to schools, churches, and cemetaries? Only in small spaces in parks or near government buildings?

That's a contradiction in sentiment. These horrendous people are an example of free speech and religion, and one of their odious tactics is to sue the police force of whatever town they protest in for not adequately protecting them or their rights. That being said, as a hate group their free speech should be revoked. Any laws that were passed would have to target them as a hate group so as to avoid nullifying everyone's right to free speech in this country. Unfortunately, you can't have it both ways…at least not without some careful wording.

David, why are you amplifying their message? The best way to combat the WBC is to deny them news coverage. Their message is not news and the media does need to provide them a free pulpit.

Oh i must have forgotten that there is only gays in CT, honestly this is ridiculous and its because of people like this the world is so screwed up. Children being slain by some maniac has nothing to do with CT and their beliefs. People are so ignorant it is sickening

Where in Christianity is hate-mongering an involved practice? What are Fred Phelps and the WBC afraid of anyhow? Rainbows? Unicorns? A flaming pink queer apocalypse? I attempted to address this with a portrait of the good reverend on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/03/fred-p… Drop in and let me know what you think!

The shooting didn't happen because we don't kill enough gay people. It didn't happen because we don't pray in school. It didn't happen because the shooter was possessed. It happened because an unstable, unsane person took guns that didn't belong to him, and flipped his fucking shit.
WBC is proof that there is no god – if there was, the gorund would have opened up and swallowed these cretins a long time ago.
