Westboro Baptist Church to picket funeral of woman killed in Boston bombings
“WestboroBaptist Church to picket funerals of those dead by Boston Bombs! GOD SENT THE BOMBS IN FURY OVER FAG MARRIAGE! #PraiseGod,” the group tweeted at 5:20 p.m. Monday, two hours after news of the first explosion.
The group, based in Topeka, Kan., issued a press release Saturday, claiming the bombs were brought upon Boston by God because President Obama supports gay marriage
“He is chiefly to blame for bringing down the wrath of God on Boston, on Massachusetts and on USA,” the release reads. “[Mr. Obama] vows that those responsible for the Boston Marathon Bombs would feel the full weight of justice. Hello, Mr. Pervert-in-chief! GOD SENT THE BOMBS!”
The Washington Times reported Tuesday that Ms. Campbell’s parents originally believed their daughter was alive in surgery after the explosions, only to learn hours later that her identity was mistaken with a friend’s. Ms. Campbell was among the three who were killed.
