Westboro Blames Oklahoma’s Deadly Tornado On…Openly Gay Jason Collins?

westboro-collins-tornadoAt least 24 people have been confirmed dead from Oklahoma’s massive tornado Monday afternoon, providing America’s least favorite church yet another moment to bask in the tragedy of others.

In typical fashion, the Westboro Baptist Church fired off a series of tweets reveling in the destruction of the tornado, at one point posting what they claimed was a rainbow flag that survived the storm:

WBC might have had rainbow houses on the brain since some good samaritan painted the house next door to theirs a fiercer shade of pale. Meanwhile, Fred Phelps, Jr., the unholy offspring of the church’s leader, linked the carnage with Kevin Durant’s support for openly gay fellow basketball playing giant Jason Collins:

We did and it doesn’t add up. At this point, Westboro’s inflammatory comments don’t even warrant a response and since the world is already full of so much negativity, here’s an adorable old lady finding her lost dog amidst the rubble instead:

      Um Queerty, you also called it a hurricane in the copy:

      “At least 24 people have been confirmed dead from Oklahoma’s massive hurricane Monday afternoon, providing America’s least favorite church yet another moment to bask in the tragedy of others.”

      For a family of total loons, they certainly attract a lot of media coverage.

      But that was MY tornado!! I spent all NIGHT slaving over the sinful acts necessary to bring about that sort of destructive force. Give credit where credit is due, WBC. I’ll be expecting a formal written apology in the mail. And maybe a muffin basket. Blueberry please. Kthx.

      I blame Westboro for the tornado. Their hot wind added to the geothermal energy released in OK.

      Don’t forget that Fred Phelps nose hairs helped spark the brimstone. Rapid friction motion from bellowing “the gays” causes air to quickly exhale through multiple orifices. Sustained by the combined holy ghost and his ragtag band of disciples, shit gets heated.

      Shame on us homosexuals for constantly sending tornado’s to tornado alley commonly known as the bible belt lol. If you ask me their god is upset at them after all he said “judge not lest ye be judged for I am the lord”.

      I knew they were going make one of their absurdly stupid statements. It just shows…reality IS stranger than fiction.

      Westboro Baptist Church: I have an idea. Let’s blame every natural disaster on conveniently timed headlines for gay rights. Good idea!!

      If it wasn’t Jason Collins, it would have been the victories in Minnesota, Rhode Island, and Delaware, or something else.

      Tsunami, Earthquakes, and Tornados? It’s the gays! Getting fired from your job? GAYYYYYYS! Lady shortchanges you at the grocery store? G-A-Y-S. Stub your toe? (whispering) …..gaaayyyyyys.

      Wait, isn’t Oklahoma one of the most hostile states in the union towards gay rights? Wouldn’t it be more rational for “god” to punish states like Minnesota, Delaware or the ten other states that have SSM? These people are too funny!

      Their claims have had to get increasingly outlandish in order to maintain media attention. They are neither interesting nor newsworthy and they don’t represent anyone other than their small family. Journalists across all media really need to stop reporting their activities.

      You’d think if we really had that much power that they would be a little more respectful of us wouldn’t you? The fact that they aren’t proves that even THEY don’t believe their bullshit.

      Too bad the tornado didn’t drop down on the Westboro Church.
