Westboro Baptist Church to Picket Funeral of Arizona Shooting Victims

by at . Comments

Incredibly, and depressingly, it's possible that Jared Lee Loughner is not the most twisted individual associated with the deaths of six people in Arizona over the weekend.

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church - an organization that has protested Adam Lambert and Justin Bieber in the past, while picketing Elizbaeth Edwards' funeral last month - plan to cause a scene at the funerals of those killed in Loughner's January 8 shooting spree.

As evidenced by their sign below, these creatons believe the deaths are punishment from God because the nation has taken action against the church. It's truly despicable stuff.

* UPDATE:Arizona legislators have approved legislation that makes it illegal to protest at or near funeral sites.

Pay no mind to this "church". They are not even a licensed church. They are made up of ex cons and members of the KKK. All they are trying to do is get attention and it seems to be working.

I am not a religious person, but was raised by a strict Baptist grandmother who was literally the most loving, non-judgemental and accepting human I've ever had the honor to meet. These people are not a church, and they are not baptist. They are hate-mongers and they are insane. I have no doubt in my mind that my beloved grandmother would love and accept my adult queer self, were she living today. That woman was a Baptist. These people are terrorists. I find it hard to believe that they can justify picketing at the funeral of a child. This is so offensive and hurtful. I am extremely grateful to the Angels of Tuscon for shielding the family from these hate-mongering freaks.

This is the craziest and the most outrageous thing I've ever heard from the people who call themseleves "christians". These people have to be put under control for their hate speeches.

I believe in God (mind you I'm not crazy God person - but I have my beliefs) and at NO TIME in my life did I ever learn or get brought up to believe that God punishes people by them getting killed or other cruel things that go on in this world.
That's completely fucking obsurd and these people seriously need to have mental evaluation done because all these CRAZY (that's right, crazy) ideas and ideologies that they have, are just nuts, and rediculous. I can't believe people who are part of a church organization, can be so cruel, and can't be understanding and open minded.
Intead they have their feet too far up eachothers asses to be thinking clearly.
Get a fuckin life you idiots.

So according to them, if a mentally ill person does violent acts in his own free will... he's doing the work of God? This church is insane
