The Westboro Baptist Church, the home of the ‘God Hates Fags Church’ has released a sickening video to explain how that ‘God Sent the Shooter’ to kill children at a Connecticut school because of the state’s acceptance of same-sex marriage.

The video lists every major mass shooting in recent American history, putting the blame on God, who took revenegne on American society’s growing acceptance of gay rights and it’s “attacks” on the Westboro Baptist Church. The highly polished video includes a jingle ‘God Sent the Shooter’.

The church has picketed the funerals of US servicemen and women killed overseas and today announced that it will picket the funerals of the children killed at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. The church blames the advances in LGBT rights for everything bad that happens to Americans- saying that disasters and deaths are punishments from God for gay equality.

Twenty children and six adults were murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday. Most of the children that were killed were aged between six and seven.

This afternoon, hacking collective Anonymous continued its long running battle with the Westboro Baptist Church, the home of the ‘God Hates Fags’ church.
