Westboro Baptist Church Blames Oklahoma Tornado On Jason Collins
A member of the Westboro Baptist Church is drawing a link between the Oklahoma tornado’s devastation and a local team’s support for openly gay NBA star Jason Collins. WTF??!
Fred Phelps Jr., the son of Westboro Baptist Church minister Fred Phelps, tweeted the following:
Via HuffPo reports:
It isn’t the first time that an anti-gay pundit has attempted to blame a natural disaster to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. In 2012, chaplain John McTernan linked Hurricane Sandy (and a number of other recent weather-related trends and natural disasters) on LGBT people and President Barack Obama’s backing of marriage equality.
“God is systematically destroying America,” McTernan wrote at the time. “Just look at what has happened this year.”
That’s weird, we blamed the tornado on the Westboro Baptist Chruch and all its evil members.
