Westboro Baptist Church Promise to Picket Funerals of Omaha Explosion Victims

As soon as officials investigating the building collapse at International Nutrition in Omaha, Nebraska, announced fatalities in the tragedy, Westboro Baptist Church pounced. Taking to their Twitter account, the hate group’s members used the group’s dreaded “#picketfunerals” hashtag when referencing the incident, which has killed at least two, injured 10 more and left about a dozen trapped and feared dead.

Westboro members also spent today spitting on the memory of Martin Luther King Jr.

The “church,” which has made its name in protesting the funerals of victims of tragedies — somehow relating the deaths to acceptance of homosexuality in society — has proven time and again that no tragedy is safe from the group’s vile opinions.
