Westboro Church has decided it is time to celebrate the deadly mass shooting at The Pulse Orlando, on June 12, 2016. It is being touted as the largest mass shooting in the history of America. Omar Mateen, 29, of Fort Pierce, Florida, targeted the gay nightclub at 2:00 a.m. EDT. He killed 50 and left countless others in peril.
The LGBT community, their families, and friends have banded together to support each other. It was reported by The Scoop, that the Westboro Baptist Church was saying they are celebrating the mass killing because God has sent in his army to deal with the proud LGBT America.
The Westboro Baptist Church has posted several tweets against the LGBT community. They quote Bible verses, such as Galatians 5:19-21, and saying that the shooter was sent by God to The Pulse, to kill, and now the murderer is in Hell.
The County fire officials of Orlando, are asking for blood donations, pleading as blood is urgently needed at this time. Equality Florida, which is Florida’s biggest organization dedicated to seeking justice for the LGBT community, has set up a GoFundMe page. Equality Florida is focused on helping to raise money for the victims involved in the tragic shootings at The Pulse Orlando.
