The Westboro Baptist Church, the controversial group known for protesting outside funerals of slain U.S. service members, announced that it will picket a vigil for the victims of Friday's Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, the second-deadliest school shooting in American history.

Shirley Phelps-Roper, a spokesperson for the group and, like most members of the organization, a relative of the group's founder, Fred Phelps, announced on Twitter on Saturday the group's plan "to sing praise to God for the glory of his work in executing his judgment."
Members of the Westboro Baptist Church say that America is being punished for its acceptance of gays and lesbians. In recent days, Phelps family members have sent tweets about the Connecticut shooting that have said "God sent the shooter."

Well, then, they'll understand when God sends snipers to turn their little protest into wet, bloody porridge, won't they?

Can these people not be arrested for inciting violence or some such?

Guess God's powers are weak and he can't pull off real smiting anymore. This is one group, if their church roof fell in and crushed them all, I'd probably laugh nonstop for a week. Oh wait, I've sunk to their level.
