“God sent the shooter,” Westboro Baptist Church‘s Fred Phelps remarked in a new video posted online after Saturday’s tragic shooting played out in Tucscon, Ariz.
(Note: Phelps incorrectly identifies the alleged shooter, Jared Loughner, as an Afghanistan veteran.)
Through his own twisted logic, Phelps believes that Jared Loughner was sent by God to commit senseless murder, including the killing of 9-year-old Christina Taylor Greene:
Greene’s family says she was vibrant, excited about life, and she was the “best daughter in the world.”
Born September 11, 2001, Greene was excited about the political process, was on the student government, and went to the Giffords event Saturday to learn more about the political process, family members say.
Greene attended Mesa Verde Elementary School. She was the only girl on the Canyon Del Oro baseball team. She loved the sport, as well as horseback riding and swimming. She wanted to be a veterinarian.
