Westboro Baptist Church to Picket Funerals of Charleston Shooting

(Twitter)

The Westboro Baptist Church has promised to picket the funerals of Clementa Pinckney and the other victims of the Emanuel Church shooting in Charleston. Amid the group’s hateful and nonsensical Twitter stream of consciousness, the group wrote “Blood of Charleston Shooting dead is on Hillary Clinton’s hands. Get some signs and picket the funerals!” That message was accompanied with the hashtag “Warnliving.”

Police identified the suspect in the attack as Dylann Roof, a Columbia-area native who sat for several minutes in a bible study Wednesday night before opening fire inside the the historic Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, according to cops.

Roof was arrested in Shelby, North Carolina on the morning of June 18, more than 12 hours after the massacre, reports WIS-TV.

The group had earlier written that Clementa Pickney was a “lying preacher” who used the pulpit to express support for Hillary Clinton. They added “Do not wast your prayers, they are abomination to God. #GodSentthe Shooter #CharlestonShooting was God’s judgement.”

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.

The woman holding the sign forgot a few words at the end. Her sign is missing “to hell”. She’ll be following him. She looks like a crazy bitch; must be his mama. God cleanse this world of its insanity.

These messengers of Satan (meaning Westboro) are a convenient tar baby for those looking for a reason to dismiss the penetrating claims of Jesus on their lives. These Pharisees (Westboro) are those whom Christ called “white washed tombs full of dead men’s bones.” They are vapors driven by the wind, clouds without rain. May God directly and severely rebuke them by the example of the love of Christ which true believers are to show one another and the lost of this world. The Body must anti-body the Westboro virus. These bigots are the premier modern day enemies of the cross – worse even than ISIS because these claim to follow the One who came to die for “the least of these.”
