And Westboro Baptist Church is at it again…
Fred Phelps Jr., the son of Westboro Baptist Church minister Fred Phelps, tweeted the following:
It isn’t the first time that an anti-gay pundit has attempted to blame a natural disaster to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. In 2012, chaplain John McTernan linked Hurricane Sandy (and a number of other recent weather-related trends and natural disasters) on LGBT people and President Barack Obama’s backing of marriage equality.
“God is systematically destroying America,” McTernan wrote at the time. “Just look at what has happened this year.”
McTernan similarly linked Hurricane Isaac with the LGBT community, pointing to the fact that the life-threatening storm coincided with Southern Decadence, New Orleans’ “Gay Mardi Gras.”
“New Orleans is still hosting Southern Decadence with open homosexuality manifesting in the streets of the city,” he wrote in a blog. “It could be that God is putting an end to this city and its wickedness.”
I don’t spend a lot of time wishing ill upon people. But, when a tornado wipes out Westboro’s church and these idiots who keep getting facetime in the media with their thoughtless rants are found lifeless, I hope there will be someone who tweets something along the lines of “Westboro flips God’s words, God silences them.”
The homosexual community has as much to do with the weather as us fat people are the cause of the economic collapse. This whole God using karma thing doesn’t work for me. He’s got the stroke to just pick off those who have crossed him one by one. He doesn’t need to (nor do I think he would he) wipe out an elementary school just to keep the homosexuals at bay.
There is a reason we have the phrase “The good die young.” Comedian Lewis Black adds “…and assholes live forever.” Perhaps he was referring to the Westboro community.
