Hate group to picket Cory's funeral

2013-07-16 15:45
Vancouver - The extremist hate and anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church announced on Twitter that they plan to picket at Cory Monteith's funeral.

The group is known for picketing at funerals of soldiers, anyone from the LGBTi community and celebrities, as well as memorials for those killed in the Boston Bombings and the Sandy Hook shooting.


This is one of many hateful tweets made by the group about Monteith, specifically targeting Glee fans, cast members and Monteith's on-and-off screen girlfriend Lea Michele, who they hoped would "kill herself". The show's pro-LGBTi message seems to have angered the hate group, which seems to be the reason behind the shocking verbal attacks.

Other celebrity targets

Taylor Swift has been called a "whore" by the hate group, who threatened to picket her Kansas concert in August and they called Lady Gaga "a gender-confused, self-loathing, tone-deaf hand basket".

UK boy band One Direction have been called "perverts" and "God-hating" for their glamorisation of "sin" and the group also planned to picket at the funeral of Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman.

    Well done Christianity...

      No they by no means represent the rest of us. They stand for their own beliefs which they twist the bible for in their favour.

      But your god advocates the murder of disobedient children and women, and slavery... They are just following the book down the the last letter... most xtians do not.

      Louise Barnard - 2013-07-16 16:35

      Well done Christianity...really?

      Trevor Dean - 2013-07-16 19:10

      Theirs is not Christianity. They are into legalism, which is the opposite of Christianity.

      Dinos Kaparos - 2013-07-17 08:21

      Gay - I see you are at it again, bashing away in your childish ignorant way. I, as a Christian, distance myself from these people. They are a disgrace. Now what you got to say about that?

      Beryl Knipe - 2013-07-17 08:34

      Gay Atheist says: "Nope, stupid people deserve ridicule." So, GA, you don't mind me saying, the name you've given yourself is really stupid and ridiculous?

  • Lulu Rudo Shezi - 2013-07-16 16:14

    I HATE these guys...pathetic inidividuals

  • Leigh-Ann Ludwig - 2013-07-16 16:15

    Oh boy. Another group stuck in the dark ages. Will people please stop playing GOD! He has the final say, no matter what we as humans think! Maybe this group should "take the logs out of their own eyes and stop worrying about the specks in others eyes".

  • mario.dippenaar - 2013-07-16 16:25

    At least Christians and atheists can agree on one thing... That WBC are despicable ruffians And scallywags And poo heads... Wait, does me hating WBC for hating other groups make me a hypocrite?

      Louise Barnard - 2013-07-16 16:36

      No! they deserve the hate!!

      GayAtheistEffUN24 - 2013-07-16 16:45

      Nope, stupid people deserve ridicule.

  • Luanda Gqirana - 2013-07-16 16:34

    Lol.

  • Adriana Gebhardt - 2013-07-16 16:37

    Okay, if these people are TRUE Christians, then why do they judge how a person lives or lived...after all, the bible does say that we shouldn't judge

      GayAtheistEffUN24 - 2013-07-16 16:46

      Because they follow the bible exactly. They don't pick and choose which parts, they believe and advocate all things in the gospel.

      Mrs_K - 2013-07-16 17:32

      @GayAthiest you don't seem to have all that much knowledge about the bible. So before you make any more comments maybe you should do some more research. They are the ones picking and choosing what suits them. They in no way represent Christianity or Christ. You clearly have issues with God and I hope one day you are able to sort them out with Him. It can't be nice living with such anger in your heart.

      Dinos Kaparos - 2013-07-17 08:23

      Please Gay, enlighten us further on your impeccable knowledge of the Bible.

  • Jenipher Lavender - 2013-07-16 16:50

    God advocates Love not Hate. These people are very confused. And Gay Athiest, murder is a human evil. God allows choices to be made by mankind of their own free will, however the day will come when the murderers and alike (unrepentants) will stand before Him and answer to the evils perpetrated during their lifetimes including the deaths of innocents. Who is mankind to judge God for not doing so now or should i say immediately at mankinds request? God will do so in His own good time.

      GayAtheistEffUN24 - 2013-07-16 16:52

      So when he said you must stone your child to death for being disobedient, that is love? Or perhaps it is love when he said slavery is ok?

      Jenipher - 2013-07-16 17:19

      Deuteronomy is in the Old Testament and what you are quoting related to the laws of that time. Maybe you should read the Bible throughout and realise that alot changed going from the Old Testament to the New Testament...

  • Nicole de Lancret - 2013-07-16 17:06

    There is no reasoning with these kind of people. I wouldn't try, even if I had the opportunity - they thrive on hate and controversy.

  • Sfiso Radebe - 2013-07-16 18:15

    God is love, do these people display the same character? isn't written that love does not boast or delight in wrong?

  • Willem Louw - 2013-07-16 18:39

    They must all be unemployed idiots with nothing better to do. As a working individual I can't imagine finding time between, work and family to go picket about something that won't change the world. The man is dead, let his friends, family and colleagues put him to rest and allow them their peace. What kind of a human being denies people that. Perhaps they should direct their own hateful diatribe at themselves. We hate hate-groups!

  • Angela Gunn - 2013-07-16 19:14

    All religions breeds hate, intolerance, terrorism, murder and wars, it has no point but to create division, show me a "good" religion anywhere!! This lot are not even the worst of the worst!!

  • Sam Mayihlome - 2013-07-16 20:44

    and this is in North America. tjo! its bad. what happened? why are they judging? who judges them? who knows? maybe some of them have skeletons in the closet. wierd, wild, world.

  • Jolene Snowball - 2013-07-17 07:51

    most CERTAINLY not Christianity.

  • Hendrik Groenewald - 2013-07-17 07:57

    They call themselves Christians, but only propogate hatred. Hell is waiting.

  • Valecia Supra - 2013-07-17 12:17

    You guys are sick and lonely. God loves all his children, who are you to judge. He is the ONLY judge, as you will discover when He comes.
