An Oklahoma tornado left five people dead in Woodward. Now, the hideous people from Westboro Baptist Church have praised God for the destruction. It seems the church is planning to picket the funerals of the dead as well.

Oklahoma Tornado: Westboro Baptist Church Praises God for Woodward Death TollThe destruction from the Oklahoma tornado is horrible, and to have somebody like Margie Phelps tweeting things like this is disgusting. Phelps tweeted, “5 dead. Praise God! #picketfunerals MT @garyeOK: @News9 Marty Logan reporting MASSIVE damage as Woodward, OK took direct hit,large tornado.”

Later she tweeted to Oklahoma’s governor writing “The warning shot God gave wretched rebel @GovMaryFallin was at 12:20 am today! 68 pickets of warning Gov!Now 5 dead,& blood is on your hands.”

While the U.S. has freedom of speech, it is especially hard to put up with it from some groups like the Westboro Baptist Church. They are a group of hate filled people who give the word “Christian” a bad name.

Those among the dead in Woodward, Oklahoma include Frank Hobbie and Derrin Juul. Additionally, two female children aged five and seven died along with Hobbie, and a 10-year-old girl was found with Juul. Additionally, schools in the city will be closed on Monday and will reopen on Tuesday. The good news is that Westboro Baptist Church’s hateful words cannot hurt the spirit of the Oklahomans who lived through the tornadoes.
