The Westboro Baptist Church tried and failed to diss Ireland after the nation legalized same-sex marriage by popular vote.
The hate group posted images of the Irish flag with angry text overlaid to condemn the 60 percent majority who voted for same-sex marriage on Saturday. However, Westboro Baptist couldn't seem to get the flag right and ended up dissing the Ivory Coast. The European and African nations have very similar flags. Ireland's is striped green, white and orange from left to right, while the Ivory Coast's is orange, white and green.
The gospel is flying all around Ireland today! Thumbs did the walking - we didn't go anywhere. God gave the increase! pic.twitter.com/8BZf9o6Zy0

After the group was called out for the apparent error, they claimed they purposefully turned the flag around to signify distress.
But the confusion was clear.
Alas, God apparently hates the Ivory Coast, too.
