GLASGOW, Scotland — The U.S.-based Westboro Baptist Church, home of anti-gay extremists famous for their “Gods Hate Fags” demonstrations, blamed a deadly helicopter crash in Glasgow on Saturday on the country’s recent advancement of a same-sex marriage bill.
“God hates Scotland, where they marry fag beasts,” said the first of a series of anti-gay tweets.
The tweets came after news that at least three people died and more than 30 others were hospitalized after a police helicopter crashed into a busy pub in Glasgow.
Westboro Baptist Church, classified as an “anti-gay hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), has a long history anti-gay picketing, demonstrations and protests. The SPLC calls Westboro “arguably the most obnoxious and rabid hate group in America.
I really think Westboro is a case of freedom of speech being too liberal.
It escapes me how these people can make these statements, without any consequences. I do not even think they believe the bs they are spreading. Merely doing it to feel like something, to provoke responses.
I hope Westboro actually go to Glasgow to deliver their "sermon" personally to the inhabitants there.
They'll find out just how memorable a Glasgow kiss is.
EDIT: Just read that they're banned from entering the UK.
