A well-known hate group in the United States has condemned Ireland’s choice to enshrine gay marriage in its constitution.

As the country, and the rest of the world, reacts to the historic Yes vote, the Westboro Baptist Church has made its feelings known.

Posting a vile message on its Twitter feed, the group, who pickets the funerals of US service personal to protest the US’s support of gay rights, said that Ireland had “failed in its duty to God.”

“It has been wholly given over to the idea that it is okay to be a filthy f**. They have allowed their f**s to establish themselves at every level of society, especially in the government.”

“While only about 10 pc of the population of Ireland are f**s or d**es, the other 90 pc are most assuredly their soul-condemning enablers.”

“The old preachers used to say f**-enablers are worse than f**s because f**-enablers support the filthy beasts calling themselves gay, and they don't even have the excuse of being prisoner to a vile lust.”
