Controversial church says bombs were sent by God to punish Massachusetts for passing same-sex marriage law
The aftermath of the explosion at the finishing line of the Boston Marathon 2013
Westboro Baptist Church has weighed-in on a national tragedy again to say that the explosion that killed three people and injured hundreds at the finishing line of the Boston Marathon yesterday was sent by God to punish the state of Massachusetts for passing same-sex marriage law.
'God sent the Boston Marathon Bombs for the sin of Massachusetts passing same-sex marriage! #SHAME #USAsDoom' said a tweet from the church.
Another tweet, referring to the Ellen DeGeneres Show, said:
'Everyone can give a big thanks to the likes of ‪@TheEllenShow‬ in supporting same-sex marriage -- THAT is the reason GOD SENT BOSTON BOMBS!'
The controversial church then sent out a series of tweet quoting the Bible and threatened to picket the funerals of the three people who were killed.
Around 20,000 long-distance runners took part in the marathon, including many raising money for LGBT-related charities.
A statement from the Boston Athletic Association who organize the race said:
'Today is a sad day for the City of Boston, for the running community, and for all those who were here to enjoy the 117th running of the Boston Marathon. What was intended to be a day of joy and celebration quickly became a day in which running a marathon was of little importance.'
Westboro Baptist Church made similar comments after the Newtown massacre in Connecticut in December when 20 children and six adults were killed by a gunman.
In 2004 Massachusetts became the first American state, and the sixth jurisdiciton in the world, to pass same-sex marriage law.
