In what should come as a shock to no one but somehow manages to be appalling, the loathsome anti-military, anti-Semitic, anti-gay, anti-American “church” has decided that the Aurora shooting victims were struck down by the grace of God. As a result, a prayer vigil organized this past weekend to memorialize those killed by James Holmes was deemed picket-worthy.
WBC member Margie Phelps could barely contain her glee over the killings and potential to disrupt the vigil, and she let her love flow all over Twitter:
Participants in a Denver comics convention had promised to form a human wall to keep protesters out of view, but its Facebook wall was full of people expressing bewilderment (if not disappointment) at the lack of a visible Westboro presence. The Examiner reported that “Despite rumors that Westboro Baptist Church planned to picket the prayer vigil being held in Aurora for the victims of the Colorado shooting, there is no proof that any members of the controversial church actually appeared.”
Not to be discouraged, several WBC members tweeted out a picture, photoshopping its protesters into a shot of the vigil.
Outside of the WBC congregation, though, people reacted to Westboro’s hate-mongering with unanimous disgust.
Keep fighting back against these disgraceful sub-humans.
