Natural disasters are like meth for religious fanatics. As soon as lives are ruined, property destroyed, people killed they spark up and start spouting that meth-addled rigmarole. And the Westboro Baptist Church is getting crazy high on Hurricane Sandy.
The Huffington Post reports:
Shirley Phelps-Roper, daughter of Westboro pastor Fred Phelps, has spewed a series of tweets about Hurricane Sandy since the storm first brewed in the Caribbean last week. “God sent the whirlwind. #ThankGodForRighteousJudgment,” Phelps-Roper tweeted after deaths were announced in Cuba.
She went on to target specific states in Sandy’s path, including Connecticut and Delaware, both of which have legalized same-sex marriage. The Westboro Baptist Church, an independent Baptist church based in Topeka, Kan., is infamous for protesting funerals of members of the armed forces because gays are allowed to serve.
The Westboro heir described Hurricane Sandy as the “wrath from God hangs over NY and Doomed USA like a Sword or Damocles.” She also mentioned the Hawaii tsunami and a Nebraska wildfire as signs from God.
So far, Sandy has left at least 69 people dead in the Caribbean and 33 dead in the U.S. with an expected $35 to $55 billion in damages to the economy. What better time, then, for Phelps-Roper to hop on the batshit bandwagon with fellow loving Christian John McTernan in rejoicing over the gays finally – FINALLY – feeling God’s righteous vengeance yadda yadda see you in hell.
