Westboro Baptist Church tweeted Monday (15 July) that it plans to protest the funeral of Glee star Cory Monteith who was found dead on Saturday in a Vancouver hotel room.

The notoriously anti-gay group filled its Twitter page with a series of homophobic tweets about Monteith whose Glee character of Finn Hudson was supportive of his gay stepbrother, Kurt Hummel (Chris Colfer).

Apparently for this reason, Westboro wrote such tweets as ‘GLEEful prep underway 4 burial of this ass,’ ‘PRAISE GOD ALMIGHTY for killing wicked fag-enabling sinner #CoryMonteith! Westboro Baptist Church to picket funeral’ and ‘@CoryMonteith & @msleamichele enabled proud fag @chriscolfer — now God curses them bitterly, suddenly & w/o remedy!’

The Topeka, Kansas based organization had said in April that the explosion which killed three people and injured hundreds at the finishing line of the Boston Marathon was sent by God to punish the state of Massachusetts for passing same-sex marriage law.
