Topeka, KS - The anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church, based in Topeka, KS, let loose yesterday with another hateful damnation of innocent victims, blaming the deaths and injuries from the Boston Marathon bombings on Massachusetts' legalization of same-sex marriage.

Two bombs exploded Monday near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, one of the longest running and closely followed sporting events in the world. Three were killed, including 8 year old Martin Richard, and more than 170 were injured Monday afternoon.

The Westboro Baptist Church, whose website is GodHatesFags.com, issued a press release late yesterday, followed by tweets today:

"THANK GOD FOR THE BOSTON MARATHON BOMBS! WBC TO PICKET THE FUNERALS OF THOSE KILLED BY THE BOMBING IN BOSTON, MA. The federal government is classifying the bombs as a terrorist attack, but say it's unclear if it's of a domestic or foreign nature. Here's a hint – GOD SENT THE BOMBS! How many more terrifying ways will you have the LORD injure and kill your fellow countrymen because you insist on nation-dooming filthy fag marriage?! Christ Jesus said that same-sex marriage would prevail just before the time that He returns in power and glory, taking vengeance on the disobedient (Luke 17; 2 Thes.1). Massachusetts invited this special wrath from God Almighty when it was the FIRST STATE to pass same-sex marriage on May 17, 2004. As a direct and immediate result of that first step down the slippery slope to nationwide fag marriage, God sent the devastating bombs to the Boston Marathon. Your callous, defiant sin now leaves 3 dead & more dying, with 100's wounded and millions terrified in its wake. HEAR YE THE ROD AND WHO HATH APPOINTED IT, USA! (Mic. 6:9.) God made a promise to you: "if ye shall despise my statutes... I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror(!)" (Lev. 26:15-16.) Westboro Baptist Church campaigns for USA to change her name to the United States of Terror, or Magormissabib: "terror on every side." What sorrow! What lamentation! What woe! GOD H8S FAG MARRIAGE!"

President Obama, speaking from the White House today, said "This was a heinous and cowardly act, and given what we now know about what took place, the FBI is investigating it as an act of terrorism. Anytime bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror."
