The Westboro Baptist Church is drawing a link between Monday's devastating Oklahoma tornado and NBA star Kevin Durant's support for Jason Collins.
After Collins came out as gay in SI this spring, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Durant was one of many players to praise his courage and offer support.
According to the WBC, OKC is now paying the price.
Fred Phelps Jr., the son of Westboro Baptist Church minister Fred Phelps and the brother of Shirley Phelps-Roper, tweeted the following messages:
"OK Thunder's Durant flips God by praising fag Collins. God smashes OK. You do the math. #FearGod #GodH8sFags #FagsDoomNations #GodH8sU"
"God's wonderful wrath in Oklahoma reminds me: #GodCursesUForFagMarriage #GodIsYourTerrorist #GodWillRepay #GodH8sU #GodAvengesHisPeople"
Pretty awful, but not unexpected from a group that has picketed funerals of slain veterans, Sandy Hook students, and Boston bombing victims.
Those aren't the only cases, nor will they be the last. Any tragedy they can exploit and pin on increased tolerance of homosexuals, the WBC is on it!
Sadly, in this situation, they're not alone in their attempt to blame a natural disaster to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.
In 2012, chaplain John McTernan linked Hurricane Sandy and other natural disasters to U.S. President Barack Obama's backing of marriage equality.
McTernan similarly linked Hurricane Isaac with the LGBT community, pointing to the fact that the storm coincided with New Orleans' "Gay Mardi Gras."
