Almost immediately after the shooting at the Sikh Temple in Wisconsin, leaders of the Westboro Baptist Church took to Twitter, calling the shooting a beautiful punishment from an angry God.

Westboro Church leader Margie Phelps sent out a tweet that read, “God sent another shooter?

The shooting claimed the lives of seven victims, and left many injured. The alleged attacker  Wade Michael Page was found dead at the scene and the FBI  is investigating if this is a case of domestic terrorism.

Fred Phelps, the leader of Westboro, wrote on Twitter that the shooting was a “beautiful work of an angry God who told Wisconsin to keep their filthy hands off his people (WBC!) #godsenttheshooter.”
