I realize this is a very old post, but I figured I would chime in on it. The Westboro Baptists Church is nothing short of a hate group. You can google them if you wish to find out more about them. In short, they routinely picket funerals, in this case, the funeral of those killed by tornadoes, and will shout provocative taunts and hold signs that say something like: "Thank God for dead soldiers", as just one example. 

It is difficult to understand the mind of the dimmented, however, I would presume that their justification is that God is killing the wicked for the sins that they have committed. Regardless, they certainly cannot know the hearts of those that are those who were killed, nor are their actions similar to what Jesus showed us. The Bible says: 

Ephesians 5:1-2

Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour"

These people certainly are not walking in love, nor is their hatred bettering the outreach of the Gospel. 

Lastly, we see in this article that a biker group, "The Patriot Guard Riders", showed up to act as guards at the funeral. They do this as a counter-protest, to support the grieving family, as well as to attempt to repel any instigation the Westboro Baptist Church members may try to commit. 

This group has done many pickets like this, and other groups have also acted to counteract them. I have not heard much about them in recent years, though based on some quick googling, it would seem that they are still active.
