The picket was announced by Pastor Fred Phelps's daughter, Margie Phelps, on Twitter on Monday. If Joe Paterno would have resigned & picketed PennRape over Sandusky, God would have blessed & kept him, &he'd still be alive, she tweeted.
Paterno's death was announced by his family on Sunday. The 85-year-old football coach, whose shining career was recently overshadowed by child sex-abuse allegations against one of his former assistants, died after complication with chemotherapy. He had long battled with lung cancer.
As tributes poured in for Paterno, including sentiments from Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett, the Kansas-based Westboro Church planned to picket his burial service.
'Penn State Penn Rape' rings in Joe Paterno's ears in hell. He partook of sin for fame & fortune. Worth NOTHING to him now. #PicketFuneral, she tweeted. Stop pimping out your kids to raping coaches @CollegeFootball! WBC must picket Paterno funeral, Margie Phelps tweeted.
The church has become well known for outraging families in their funeral pickets. They have picketed at funerals of fallen soldiers in a bizarre aim to protest homosexuality within the military.
New York has become a prime target of their protest since same-sex marriage was legalized in 2011.
>10 years ago, God sent two planes, like juggernauts through time and space to bring down the pride of the twin towers. That was the time to REPENT! By God, you would not repent. In fact, you got worse. 10 years later, New York, in blatant defiance against God (even as you displayed the remains of Pompaii, destroyed by God for their sodomitical practices) legalized same-sex marriage, the church wrote in a statement on their Website.
The church carried out a protest at the Harvey Milk High School in New York on Jan.24. Milk was an American politician who became the first openly homosexual man to be elected into public office in California.
Harvey Milk is in hell! The only thing important about him is that he lived in proud rebellion against the Lord his God! Now, his life is done and real time has begun, the church chanted in protest outside the school.
Upcoming Westboro Pickets
The church has announced it will be organizing a picket at the Sprint Center in Kansas City on Feb.2 between 6.45pm-7.30pm.
WBC will picket Jeff Dunham at the Sprint Center in KCMO to warn this generation to flee from the wrath of God to come. Your entertainment industry has become your idol and is full of filth. Jeff Dunham, you have been given one of the largest bullhorns in this nation and have the God-given duty to use that to glorify God. Why don't you create a puppet and skit that does so, the church said in a statement on their Website
WBC will also be picketing at the Academy Awards on Feb.26, outside the Kodak Theater in Hollywood between 3-5p.m
WBC will picket the Academy Awards to remind this nation that God hates your idols and that He will cast you and the Hollywood freaks that you worship into Hell eternally. WBC warns Doomed americans to flee from the show business perversion machine that embraces fag filth by promoting such abominations as fag marriage. Doomed America plays with fire by allowing such base men to lead them down the path to destruction.
