The cultists of the Westboro Baptist Church have reared their ugly heads again, this time to blame the advent of marriage equality in Connecticut for the tragic shooting spree in Newtown that took 26 lives.

The hate group has also announced it will protest the funerals of children killed in the massacre: Shirley Phelps-Roper, daughter of head nutjob Fred Phelps, tweeted, “Westboro will picket Sandy Hook Elementary School to sing praise to God for the glory of his work in executing his judgment.”

Fred later tweeted “That’s the message that this evil nation and world need: that God Almighty is on the march & nothing is gonna stop Him.”

The hackers of Anonymous struck back by releasing private information of Westboro members online, including email addresses, phone numbers and home addresses. “We have decided to execute an agenda which will progressively dismantle your institution of deceitful pretext and extreme bias,” the group announced in a video clip (below). “We will waste no time, money, effort and enjoyment in tearing your resolves into pieces.”
