The Westboro Baptist Church thinks "God Hates Ireland" after yesterday - but they got our flag wrong

Scarlet for them.

HATE GROUP THE Westboro Baptist Church, known for picketing the funerals of dead US soldiers, says that “God Hates Ireland” after yesterday’s historic referendum.

The group reacted to Ireland passing same-sex marriage in predictable fashion, launching an offensive missive against both the country and gay people.

They say that Ireland’s hate speech laws have “eliminated any true gospel preaching” in the country.

They even tweeted their signature “God Hates” sign, but seem confused about the order and orientation of the colours on the Irish flag.

The 39-member church from Topeka, Kansas says that Ireland is led by “dogs” and has become a “cesspool of corruption”.

(This passage contains some language that some people will find offensive).

“While only about 10% of the population of Ireland are fags or dykes, the other 90% are most assuredly their soul-condemning enablers. The old preachers used to say fag-enablers are worse than fags because fag-enablers support the filthy beasts calling themselves gay, and they don’t even have the excuse of being prisoner to a vile lust.
Romans 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. Ireland is a land of vile, feces-eaters and anus lickers and those who have pleasure in them – all of whom are abominations to God and headed for Hell. Deal with it!”

Irish people on Twitter, however, were having none of it.
