The group which has gained international attention for its own attention-grabbing stunts, including picketing the funerals of soldiers injured in Iraq and Afghanistan, has stated that they will be picketing the funerals of those killed in the Boston Marathon bombing. The church said that Massachusetts invited the bombings because it was the first state to pass same-sex marriage in 2004.
