The Westboro Baptist Church is made up of such busy little bees … with all their speaking for God and picketing military funerals, it’s a wonder they find time to tweet out all the filth they do!

In what should come as a shock to no one but somehow manages to be appalling, the loathsome anti-military, anti-Semitic, anti-gay, anti-American “church” has decided that the Aurora shooting victims were struck down by the grace of God. As a result, a prayer vigil organized this past weekend to memorialize those killed by James Holmes was deemed picket-worthy.

WBC member Margie Phelps could barely contain her glee over the killings and potential to disrupt the vigil, and she let her love flow all over Twitter:

Fortunately, it seems that the WBC’s plans to crash the vigil were thwarted, either by the “human wall” or their own cowardice or a combination of both. No one from the church ever showed up.

Participants in a Denver comics convention had promised to form a human wall to keep protesters out of view, but its Facebook wall was full of people expressing bewilderment (if not disappointment) at the lack of a visible Westboro presence. The Examiner reported that “Despite rumors that Westboro Baptist Church planned to picket the prayer vigil being held in Aurora for the victims of the Colorado shooting, there is no proof that any members of the controversial church actually appeared.”

Not to be discouraged, several WBC members tweeted out a picture, photoshopping its protesters into a shot of the vigil.

12 idol-crosses for 12 dead-in-hell, perfect backdrop for "God Sent the Shooter" sign! #ThankGodForTheShooter #aurora

Outside of the WBC congregation, though, people reacted to Westboro’s hate-mongering with unanimous disgust.

The press shouldn’t give Westboro ANY coverage in Colorado. Even negative coverage gets them seen. Ugh. Nasty nasty nasty people.

Why is Westboro Baptist Church going to picket the vigil in Aurora? Is there some alliance that can just kick them from the denomination?

These are the most loathsome people. All they do is spread cruelty and hate,the opposite message that Jesus taught.

Westboro Baptist Church will burn in hell. They are a disgrace to the Lord and to all Christians.
