The Westboro Baptist Church has outdone its usual outpouring of hate-filled rhetoric in the wake of the Orlando terror attacks. The Orlando terror attack took place at Pulse nightclub early Sunday morning, and it resulted in the shooting deaths of 53 people. Fifty more were injured in the terror attack, which happened during a three-hour window during which time the patrons of the club were held hostage inside. Ultimately, police in Florida stormed Pulse and killed the gunman, but the rescue came too late for dozens. Westboro Baptist Church responded to the worst terror attack in U.S. history by blaming the victims for their murders, saying the vicious attack was the result of the club patrons' homosexuality and that "God sent the shooter" to kill them.
The Westboro Baptist Church Twitter feed lit up with jubilant tweets following the news of the massacre.
