Members of a controversial anti-gay church group from the US say they plan to picket outside a memorial service for the victims of the deadly Victorian bushfires.

The Westboro Baptist Church is notorious for protesting at the funerals of soldiers killed in Iraq, claiming their deaths are \’punishment\’ for America\’s tolerance of homosexuality.

The Kansas-based group, headed by fanatical pastor Fred Phelps, was banned from entering the UK earlier this week – and has now turned its attention to Australia.

In a statement, the church said: “The guilty Australians will not repent of their national sins of the flesh – (ie sodomy, divorce, fornication, adultery, etc) – even after God killed hundreds in the fires and cast them into hotter fire and brimstone in Hell.

“Therefore we will picket them in their hypocritical grief.”

The statement, entitled “God hates Australia. Thank god for fiery deaths of hundreds”, was posted on the group\’s website.

National Day of Mourning

Thousands of Victorians are expected to gather in Melbourne and a string of bushfire-scorched townships on Sunday as part of a national day of mourning.

Victoria\’s recent fire disaster left 208 people dead and thousands more homeless after destroying more than 1,800 houses across the state.

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church were barred from the UK on Wednesday, after announcing plans to picket a college performance of The Laramie Project.

The play focuses on the 1998 hate-killing of gay man Matthew Shepherd, and the US\’s reaction to his death.

Phelps and members of his church protested at Shepherd\’s funeral, bearing placards saying “God Hates Fags” and chanting “Fags die, God laughs”.
