Westboro Baptist Church members say they’ll picket the funeral of killed Missouri teen Michael Brown because of openly gay NFL player Michael Sam, who plays for the St. Louis Rams.

A flier posted on the group’s website says that no matter the reason of the shooting for Brown, the “cause was from the Lord.”

“Missouri has made itself known worldwide for three things. [Gays] e.g. Michael Sam; bestiality; and shredding the constitution in order to remove the Word of God from their streets,” the leaflet states. “Now you reap what you have to diligently sown, Missouri! Your streets resemble a Middle Eastern war zone! … All evidence points to Michael [Brown] now being in Hell. It’s your fault, Missouri! His blood is on your hands!”

Last week, the group also announced intent to protest Robin Wiliams’ funeral because of the actor’s portrayal of a gay man in one of his movies.
