Westboro Hate Cult Will Picket Paul Walker’s Funeral
The publicity-starved Westboro “Baptist Church” has announced that they intend another ghoulish protest, this time at the funeral of “Fast and Furious” actor Paul Walker.
The Westboro Baptist Church, the controversial religious sect best known for protesting at military funeral with hate-filled, anti-gay messages, announced Monday that it will picket the “Fast & Furious” star’s funeral.
“Paul served himself & the gods of this world (money, fame, excess of riot, etc.) while refusing to serve His Creator & use his platform, to encourage his neighbors to do the same,” a rep for the hate-mongering group tweeted.
“He’s in Hell & Westboro will #PicketFuneral.”
As a number of angry fans tweeted back, Walker earned a reputation for using his celebrity to do charity work, including the organization he founded, Reach Out Worldwide, which provides relief to areas struck by natural disasters around the world.
The Topeka, Kan.-based Westboro Baptist Church was founded by hate-mongering pastor Fred Phelps in 1955 and rose to notoriety after picketing the funeral of murdered college student Matthew Shepard, who was beaten to death in 1998 because he was gay.
