Westboro Baptist Church to picket explosion victims funerals: Petition started

Westboro Baptist Church to picket explosion victims funerals: Petition started, Westboro Baptist Church is striking out again claiming that Americans are to blame for the fate of the Boston Marathon explosions. According to rants on Twitter Monday, April 15 the Westboro Baptist Church claims the bombings are in reaction to the gay community and abortion rights that happen in the United States.

Rage has ensued on Twitter as fellow Westboro member Margie Phelps launches a heavily targeted Twitter campaign with plans to picket the funerals of those killed during the Boston Marathon explosion. The explosion which left two dead and several dozen injured has caused Margie Phelps and the WBC to claim that President Obama has once again enraged God.

@MargieJPhelps: Too late! You've enraged God w #SSM Mr. President. #stopit
MT @CapehartJ: POTUS:American people will say prayer for people of Boston tonight

Unfortunately, it will not end with Tweets on Twitter. Using Twitter to further get their message out, the WBC once again claims they will stand with signs and picket any funeral held for those killed in the explosion.

@WBCFliers: BREAKING: Westboro Baptist Church to picket funerals of those dead by Boston Bombs! GOD SENT THE BOMBS IN FURY OVER FAG MARRIAGE! #PraiseGod

People are firing back against WBC and their claims to picket. It is evident that they are tired of the group claiming to be a religious group when in reality they promote hate. A petition has been launched to prevent them from picketing at any funerals held in Boston.
