Westboro Baptist Church Gloats Over Wisconsin Temple Shooting

Westboro Baptist Church members gloat over Wisconsin shootings

The Westboro Baptist Church waited only minutes after news broke of a mass shooting at a Sikh Temple in Wisconsin before taking to the internet to spread hatred about the attack.

The hate mongering church took to their Twitter accounts, asking if “God sent another shooter?, the Huffington Post reported. Church members were referencing the July mass killing in Aurora, Colo., at a midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises.”

In that occasion they also said the shooter, James Holmes, was sent by God. Church members also threatened to picket the funerals and memorial services for Colorado victims, but it turned out the threats were empty and they failed to show.

It could be that the church’s Phelps family is still bitter over a string of high-profile setbacks. The church’s virulent anti-gay pickets have been thwarted both by some creative counter-protesters and by Congress, which has restricted their ability to picket at the funerals of soldiers.

The shooting at the Sikh Temple is seen as one of the worst acts of domestic terrorism in recent memory, Fox News reported. Authorities said that 40-year-old ex-Army soldier Wade Michael Page entered the temple and began firing, killing six people and wounding four others before dying in a shootout with police.

Police haven’t released many details about the killing or the reason why Page did it. Page is reportedly a white supremacist and was once the member of a skinhead band, The Huffington Post reported.

Though members did their usual victim-blaming for the attack, the “church” leader Fred Phelps took it a step further, saying the attack came because God was angry that the Westboro Baptist Church members were once treated poorly in Wisconsin.

The Westboro Baptist Church has not indicated whether it plans to picket the funerals of those killed in Wisconsin.

    This Church is something that God warned us about. He said to watch out for false teachings and people who said they were preaching Gods word and really are not. This is just another cult Church like Jonestown and Waco.

    Shame on these people who claim to be so"Godly"…I am a Christian and because I believe in the bible (something you bunch of nut cases need to truly read) it is my prayer that as you die since i am a nurse and you beg for God to take you home….I hope you did'nt miss the bus going up….and stand in ine wih all your friend for the bus to hell. I have compassion and watch people beg God to forgive and cry and pray with them. After what you did to those children. My compassion for you would not be there. In fact I think I would have a smile waiting for that long black train to come for your wicked twisted soul
