Westboro Baptist Church Plans to Picket Boston Marathon Funerals
The Westboro Baptist Church gleefully announced via Twitter that it will "picket [the] funerals of those dead by Boston Bombs" after two explosions rocked the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three, and injuring at least 150. Naturally, the WBC welcomed this development, as it regards any and all disasters as punishment from god for America's supposed moral decline, particularly gay marriage.
The WBC is led by Fred Phelps, and his daughter Margie, who took to Twitter this afternoon to announce the picket:
Considering the circumstances — including the fact that an eight-year old boy was killed in the explosions— if the WBC goes through with its picket, it will likely have to do so under some serious police protection.
