US church announces plans to picket funeral of deceased Glee star Cory Monteith

The adamantly homophobic Westboro Baptist Church has announced plans to picket the funeral of deceased Glee star Cory Monteith.

The church, which often pickets the funerals of those seen to be pro-gay or accepting of LGBT people, tweeted to say that it would picket Monteith’s funeral because he supported openly-gay co-star Chris Colfer.

The organisation also went on to suggest that Monteith’s girlfriend Lea Michele – also a Glee actor- should kill herself.

The straight star played Finn Hudson in the popular US TV series Glee, and was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room at the weekend, aged 31.

“Westboro praises God for his righteous judgments. Hell won’t be gleeful for #CoryMonteith – he taught millions to sin,” the group tweeted, in a string of tweets about the late star.

Another tweet read: “Hell won’t be gleeful for Cory Monteith.”

Last month the church took umbrage at a pink lemonade stand run by a 5-year-old in the name of an anti-bullying campaign, and told her she would “burn in hell”.

The church previously tweeted PinkNews to say that God sent the killers in the suspected terror killing in Woolwich, London, because the equal marriage bill passed its third reading in the House of Commons.

It previously thanked God for a lethal tornado that ripped through Moore, Oklahoma, leaving at least 24 people dead, saying it’s because of gay basketball player Jason Collins.
