Last weekend, Omar Mateen was responsible for 50 deaths and 53 injured party-goers in a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. While the families of the deceased mourn of their lost ones, The Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) celebrated the shooting by saying “God sent the shooter.”
WBC is known for being an anti-LGBT group and have taken to Twitter to spread their opinions on the recent mass shooting. WBC believes the tragedy was a message from God and have Tweeted, “only right for Sodom America!” Sunday morning.
There is no knowing if members of WBC will take a trip to Orlando and protest, since they are known to spread their anti-LGBT messages at funerals who have faced similar fates. A few members went to Louisville, Kentucky and protested at Muhammad Ali’s funeral, and have also picketed at other celebrities, athletes, and soldier’s funerals as well.
WBC believes that Mateen was sent by God, but should have done more to spread God’s message. It is so hard to believe that there are people in this world who are still anti-LGBT and take the time out of their lives to spread an unpopular opinion. WBC have no respect at all for human life.
