The Westboro Baptist Church, the controversial group known for protesting outside funerals of slain U.S. service members, announced that it will picket a vigil for the victims of Friday's Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, the second-deadliest school shooting in American history.

Shirley Phelps-Roper, a spokesperson for the group and, like most members of the organization, a relative of the group's founder, Fred Phelps, announced on Twitter on Saturday the group's plan "to sing praise to God for the glory of his work in executing his judgment."

It is unclear when the group plans to protest, although a tweet from Margie Phelps implied that it would be during a vigil that will be attended by President Barack Obama on Sunday evening.

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church say that America is being punished for its acceptance of gays and lesbians. In recent days, Phelps family members have sent tweets about the Connecticut shooting that have said "God sent the shooter."

Not surprisingly, the group's announcement was met with resistance online. A Change.org petition asking for Connecticut officials to prevent the group from protesting has been launched, and users of the social news and link sharing site Reddit have been discussing ways to stage a counter-protest.

A Facebook event that calls for "counter-activity" to "keep any hatred from touching" the grieving families has over 10,000 attendees, but because of a bomb threat in Newtown on Sunday, the event has been cancelled.

Anonymous, the loosely affiliated group of Internet "hacktivists," said that it had hacked the group's website and released personal information about the group's members, according to The Inquisitr.

The Southern Poverty Law Center calls the Westboro Baptist Church "arguably the most obnoxious and rabid hate group in America," while the Anti-Defamation League calls it "a small virulently homophobic, anti-Semitic hate group."

In 2011, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Westboro Baptist Church, saying that the right to picket funerals was protected under the First Amendment. President Obama earlier this year, however, signed legislation that said that protests must be held 300 feet from military funerals.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story indicated that WBC members would picket Sandy Hook Elementary School. The vigil is at Newtown High School. Additionally, an earlier version of this story called the shooting "the second-largest mass killing in American history." It is the second-deadliest school shooting.

Yeah, because this is clearly an accurate example of religion. It would be just as unfair for me to point at Joseph Stalin's and Pol Pott's atheism as a reason I loathe the absence of faith. Fred Phelps protests funerals as a "Christian", and Stalin blew up a countless number of Russian orthodox churches as an atheist. The end.

They weren't fucking killing anyone in the name of some deity.

They killed because they were murdering fuckheads.

so Christians and Muslims do not kill because they are simply murdering ****heads? So if one attempts to annihilate religion and kills innocents by doing so, it's somehow different than a terrorist attack in the name of God? My point is, there are crazies no matter if you worship a God, Gods, a broom, or nothing at all. It's dishonest to look at somebody like Fred Phelps and chalk it up as an ideal religious example. 99 percent of Christians in the United States would condemn this action wholeheartedly, just like 99 percent of atheists would condemn Stalin's anti-religious position that lead to the deaths of many believers.

Also to Dave, you've clearly shown that you concede that the Westboro Baptist Church does hideous and evil things. With that said, if you deny God, then it follows you deny that objective moral values exist. WBC's evil would merely be subjective and therefore determined by you and I. If they think it's good and is not evil, who says that their moral code is anymore right or wrong than ours? In the end, us and them are in the same boat in terms of our moral law and after death (no hell below, no heaven above). Like Dostoevsky once said, without God everything is morally permissible.

No, they're a hate group, that's what it is. They need to be dealt with, and accourdingly.

The American Bar Association defines hate speech as "speech that offends, threatens, or insults groups, based on race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or other traits."

Do you think the Westboro Baptist Church is exercising its right to free speech, or does this classify as hate speech?

I don't think so.

Therefore, I have no problem with labeling them as a terrorist group and shipping their asses first class to Gitmo.

I would rather someone just took care of them physically, I wouldn't shed a tear. We don't need to label them as I think we've already done that, it would be nice if the courts would reject hearing their cases. I agree that picketing anything related to death is not only senseless but also against the plain teachings of Jesus.

I believe I saw a new story one time saying this exact thing. They finance the whole thing by suing the bejesus out of anyone who messes with them.

I still feel like them being beat DOWN. Not just hit, a couple times, but really beat the hell down is a-ok

Yup, this exactly. Just like any ambalamps chasing lawyer, they found their niche. I'm sure their is some ego and power trip drive behind it too. They are fucking nuts.

If memory serves me correctly (and most likely I'm wrong) but I think they went to either Rushville or Weston to picket a few years ago, and they left early. They felt unsafe, above and beyond whatever they normally hear. If this is true, whatever "methods" the locals used should get passed around to EVERYONE that has to look at these shitheads.

I recall at one protest site the locals found out where they were staying. The morning of the event some rude people just happened to park their cars in front of the potential picketers and they couldn't get out of their spots. By the time police responded with tow trucks the funeral was over and the cars had just been moved.

I think that was out east somewhere. I remember it too. The authorities weren't in any hurry to get there either, they had other pressing matters than illegally parked cars.

I remain surprised that no emotionally devastated mourner with nothing left to lose has slid their F-150 sideways through a massed gathering of WBC protestors. Maybe this will be the time.

I would pay to see that. And I never pay to see an F-150 slid sideways through protesters.

As much as I despise them it wouldn't be a win. They've committed no terrorist acts. They are merely exercising their freedom of speech.

Sadly this.

They have the right to say as they do. But as a consequence of that choice, they also earn the hatred and disgust of the nation.

Westboro Meets Its Match: Thousands Sign Retaliatory Petitions

Posted on: 11:57 am, December 17, 2012, by Sarah Clark (http://fox4kc.com/author/sarahjclark/), updated on: 04:24pm, December 17, 2012






KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Thousands have signed two separate petitions that would classify Topeka’s Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group and strip it of its tax exempt status. The petitions were started after members of Westboro announced plans to protest a Sunday vigil in Newtown, Conn.


After Westboro Baptist Church spokesperson Shirey Phelps-Roper tweeted plans to protest the vigil, “to sing praise to God for the glory of his work in executing his judgement,” the hacktivist group known as “Anonymous” threatened the church via video (http://vimeo.com/55671721). In it, an automated voice says, “We will not allow you to corrupt the minds of America with your seeds of hatred. We will not allow you to inspire aggression to the social faction which you deem inferior. We will render you obsolete. We will destroy you. We are coming.”


In addition to the video, Anonymous hacked Westboro’s website and released personal information about church members including names, street addresses, phone numbers and email addresses according to CNET (http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-57559468-93/hackers-target-westboro-baptist-church-after-newtown-threat/).


Anonymous didn’t stop there. Using its Twitter (https://twitter.com/YourAnonNews/status/280488682849452032) account, Anonymous asked its followers to sign a petition (https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/investigate-irs-tax-exempt-status-westboro-baptist-church/YrKbHYtV) that would investigate the IRS tax-exempt status of the church. As stated on the White House website, the petition claims: “The Westboro Baptist Church is better-known for homophobic displays, suing people and picketing funerals than for providing Christian care to a community. Due to their harassment and politicking, their IRS tax-exempt status should be immediately investigated.”


A total of 16,062 signatures are needed before the White House will review the petition. As of noon on Monday, nearly 10,000 people had signed it.

(https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/legally-recognize-westboro-baptist-church-hate-group/DYf3pH2d?utm_source=wh.gov&utm_medium=shorturl&utm_campaign=shorturl)
Another petition (https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/legally-recognize-westboro-baptist-church-hate-group/DYf3pH2d?utm_source=wh.gov&utm_medium=shorturl&utm_campaign=shorturl) aims at stripping Westboro of its “religious” affiliation and classifying it as a hate group. As stated in part on the White House website, Westboro’s “actions have been directed at many groups, including homosexuals, military, Jewish people and even other Christians. They pose a threat to the welfare and treatment of others and will not improve without some form of imposed regulation.”


Over 108,000 people have signed this petition, which surpasses the 25,000 needed for the White House to review it.

Also to Dave, you've clearly shown that you concede that the Westboro Baptist Church does hideous and evil things. With that said, if you deny God, then it follows you deny that objective moral values exist. WBC's evil would merely be subjective and therefore determined by you and I. If they think it's good and is not evil, who says that their moral code is anymore right or wrong than ours? In the end, us and them are in the same boat in terms of our moral law and after death (no hell below, no heaven above). Like Dostoevsky once said, without God everything is morally permissible.

You're full of shit.

I know the Phelps family well and they're not going to give up. They have a police guard with them just about every place they picket in Topeka. They also video the entire protest and have used that to garner some pretty good settlements. They do some creative editing, BTW. Sadly, the ones that can still practice law are very good attorneys and the ones that have been disbarred still have good legal minds. Where they live, or at least where most of them do, is no secret. They have the block bordered by SW 12th, Orleans St., Churchill Rd., and Cambridge Ave. in Topeka.

Just to be clear...this group of idiots does not represent the typical Baptist Church or God's teachings.

My church (Baptist) spent part of Sunday morning service praying for the victims famlies and told the congregation to continue to hold the families up in prayer.

They don't make Christians look bad to anyone except those who already hate Christians. Anyone with half a brain can tell these morons are not Christians. The haters just love to lump Christians in with them cuz it's convenient.

Only two other ways I am aware of are vigilantism (Anonymous) or repeal of the first amendment.

I don't think it's that hard to ignore anymore. When I first heard about this group I was fascinated with the insane logic and reasoning that they use. Now that I've seen the act play on for years it isn't nearly as interesting, and seems more like a mental disorder of some kind that the whole family shares. No use shouting at the rain. They are bat-shit crazy, and public outrage is a drug they are addicted to.

Seems like I heard a story where they traveled somewhere to protest at a soldiers funeral.

Of course it turned out not to be the same group, but still it took 2-3 hours to determine that... :D
