Britain First's Christian Wing Condemn Robin Williams For 'Rejecting Jesus Christ'

Posted: Updated:

The Christian wing of pseudo-militia group Britain First have condemned the late Robin Williams for "rejecting Jesus Christ."

Just as the hate-filled Westboro Baptist Church has taken to social media to try and capitalise on the actor's death, Britain First's Christian branch has encouraged Facebook users to "repent and believe the Gospel."

"Truly sad it is and clearly this man will be greatly missed," the group first writes.

"However, on my news feed I have seen a video where Robin Williams openly mocks Jesus Christ," it adds. "After death comes the Judgement and it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God. Hebrews 10:31."

"There are no exceptions for movie stars," the group adds.

The group is apparently a "home on Facebook for Christian patriots who love Britain and work towards restoring Britain as a Christian country!"

The group launched their attack after claiming Williams rejected Jesus Christ in 2003.

The comments by the far-right group came as the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), known for its anti-gay vitriol and for picketing the funerals of soldiers, is now threatening to spread their hate at the funeral of the late actor.

As others unite in their grief over the loss of the much-loved late actor, the group has denounced Williams as a "fag pimp" because he played a gay character in the cult film the Birdcage and a cross dresser in the family film Mrs Doubtfire.

In scenes that would probably have left Williams chuckling in disbelief, members have already attempted to disrupt vigils held for the actor in San Francisco.

Williams, 63, died on Monday. The late actor leaves behind three children, his wife Susan Schneider and a countless number of devastated fans.

WBC is also currently carrying out their "God hates media" campaign against Facebook, Apple and Google. They have failed to spot the irony of using the social media tools to push out their hateful agendas.

The group announced it was picketing the headquarters of social media sites Pinterest, Facebook, Reddit and Instagram as part of the campaign.

WBC has accused Instagram of having a history of removing pictures and even accounts when they contain too many "Bible words,” and claimed Facebook “utilises every opportunity to aggressively publish and promote fag propaganda”.

“Westboro Baptist Church will use the Reddit platform, which is usually filled with vanity, science falsely so-called, and other sundry lies; to instead preach righteousness & spread the gospel,” the group said in a news release. We can't see Reddit users responding with enthusiasm over the news.
