Westboro Baptist Church, also known as the universally agreed upon worst human beings, have announced their plans to head to Newtown, Connecticut, to picket Sandy Hook Elementary following the Sandy Hook Massacre.
You may know them from their previous work: protesting soldiers’ funerals, thanking God for 9/11, picketing Matthew Shepard’s funeral, and going around toting signs that read “God Hates Fags.” America right now is extremely divided (even after a horrendous rampage that would bring any sane human to tears, we’re ready to come to blows with each other over gun control) and yet every single American who is not a member of the Westboro Baptist Church agrees that they’re awful and we hate them.
And now they’re ready to picket at the death site of 6-year-olds and 7-year-olds. They have no shame and no remorse and they believe they are doing God’s will. A member of the church recently tweeted:
“Westboro will picket Sandy Hook Elementary School to sing praise to God for the glory of his work in executing his judgment.”
So, they plan to keep up their reputation, then. I shook my fists in anger at first. But eventually I was just worn out. These people are clowns. They deserve worse than they’ll ever get, but it’s not worth fretting over.
