Westboro Baptist Church to Picket Ferguson, Missouri

The Westboro Baptist Church has tweeted via their official Twitter account that its members plan to picket Ferguson, Missouri. The town of Ferguson has been engulfed with rioting and protesting since the shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teen, by police officer Darren Wilson on August 9.

On August 14 there seemed to be a savior in the shape of Missouri State Highway commander Ron Johnson. His community policing seemed to have calmed the crowd. But that could all come to an end if the hateful holly rollers from Wichita roll into town. The group has been tweeting about the scenes in Ferguson using the hashtag “#picketferguson.”

Here’s what they’ve been saying:

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