Today has been a day that has tried the soul of a city.

In the hours since the two explosions rocked the streets of Boston, messages of love and support have saturated the internet but these inspiring and compassionate posts were not universal.

In fact, the commentary streaming across the Twitter feed of the Westboro Baptist Church was both hostile and hateful.

The Westboro Baptist Church, based in Topeka, Kansas,is a small, virulently homophobic, anti-Semitic hate group that regularly stages protestsor pickets institutions and individuals they think support homosexuality or otherwise subvert what they believe is Gods law.

WBC even protested the funerals of children who were slain in the horrific Newtown shootings this past December.

Given their history, perhaps it should come as no surprise that members of the Westboro Baptist Church have vowed to picket the funerals of those killed at the Boston Marathon today.

In one tweet, the church wrote, God sent the Boston Marathon Bombs for the sin of Massachusetts passing same-sex marriage!

Margie Phelps, daughter of church founder and leader Fred Phelps, tweeted Monday that the bombing was punishment for gay marriage. God doesnt hear the prayers of proud pushers of #SSM (same-sex marriage).

You marry f*gs, God sends mayhem, she added.

The Westboro Baptist Church has its own Twitter account and used their platform to request Boston change its name.

WBC is starting campaign to re-name F*g-infested Boston to Magormissabib, meaning terror all around. Jer20:3#ThankGod4TheTerrorOfTheLord, the tweet said.

Another one of the churchs tweets read, God sent the Boston Marathon Bombs for the sin of Massachusetts passing same-sex marriage!

Two bombs went off in Boston around 2:50 p.m. at the finish line. Another two bombs were found along the running route but did not detonate. No one has taken responsibility, but the Obama administration is calling the explosion on Monday an act of terror.

CNN reported there are three dead and more than 140 injured, with 17 in critical condition. Many of the patients will require serial operations in the following days to help heal their wounds. ” – ibtimes.com

“The Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) is an American independent Baptist church known for its extreme ideologies, especially those against gay people.[2][3] The church is widely described as a hate group[4] and is monitored as such by the Anti-Defamation League and Southern Poverty Law Center. It is headed by Fred Phelps and consists primarily of members of his large family;[5] in 2011, the church stated that it had about 40 members.[1] The church is headquartered in a residential neighborhood on the west side of Topeka about three miles (5km) west of the Kansas State Capitol. Its first public service was held on the afternoon of November 27, 1955.[6]

The church has been actively involved in actions against gay people since at least 1991, when it sought a crackdown on homosexual activity at Gage Park six blocks northwest of the church.[7] In addition to conducting anti-gay protests at military funerals, the organization pickets other celebrity funerals and public events that are likely to get it media attention.[8] Protests have also been held against Jews and some protests have included WBC members stomping on the American flag.

The WBC is not affiliated with any Baptist denomination, including the two largest Baptist denominations, the Baptist World Alliance or the Southern Baptist Convention, both of which have denounced the WBC over the years.[9] The church describes itself as following Primitive Baptist and Calvinist principles.” – wikipedia.org

If there were a WBC in the UK tweeting the same homophobic & grossly offensive garbage, they would be prosecuted for hate crime offences – The WBC have their 1st Amendment right to vile speech and are protected in the US.
