Oklahoma tornado, killing up to 91, blamed on gay Jason Collins

An Oklahoma tornado that has claimed the lives of up to 91 people is being blamed on Jason Collins.

Fred Phelps Jr, the son of the leader behind the infamous Westboro Baptist Church, has linked homosexuality to the destructive natural disaster.

He said Oklahoma sportsman Kevin Durant offended God by saying ‘no one has the right to judge’ the first openly gay basketball player.

Phelps tweeted: ‘OK Thunder’s Durant flips God by praising fag Collins. God smashed OK. You do the math. #GodH8sFags #FagsDoomNations #FearGod #GodH8sU’

On the Westboro Baptist Church Twitter page, they tweeted a picture of a rainbow flag still standing after the destruction.

‘What’s this picture? Another rainbow house in evil Oklahoma? #GodH8sYourIdols #FearGodNotMotherNature’

It is believed the ‘God Hates Fags’ church will also protest the funerals of those killed by the Oklahoma tornado.

Around half of those killed by the winds, which reached up to 200mph in Moore, are thought to be children. One elementary school was directly hit, which was attended by roughly 500 students.

While 51 have been confirmed dead, the chief administrative officer for the state medical examiner has said they had been told by emergency services to expect another 40 bodies.

President Barack Obama has told Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin and promised the state all the help it needs.

‘This is a very sad day for the state of Oklahoma – a very hard day and very tragic day,’ she said.

‘Our prayers and our thoughts are with all the Oklahoma families that have been hit hard by this terrible storm. We are doing every single thing that we can to assist those that are in need right now.’
