The anti-gay group, Westboro Baptist Church, has promised to picket at the scene of the Newtown, Connecticut elementary school shooting.
WBC member Shirley Phelps-Roper tweeted: “Westboro will picket Sandy Hook Elementary School to sing praise to God for the glory of his work in executing his judgment.”
Westboro’s URL is GodHatesFags.com and the members can usually be found picketing fallen LGBT soldiers and celebrity funerals. In a word, they are crazy—so crazy in fact that the Ku Klux Klan has counter-protested them in the past. When the KKK steps in as the voice of reason, you know you are dealing with the bottom-of-the-barrel crazy.
Anonymous – @kyanonymous, an Internet ‘hacktivist’ has taken credit for hacking the WBC website and has sent a message to the church in a video for the Westboro group. Anonymous explains that the church’s hate supersedes reason and they warn:
“We will not debate, argue or attempt to reason with you. Instead we have unanimously deemed your organization to be harmful to the population of the United States of America and therefore have decided to execute an agenda of action which will progressively dismantle your institution of deceitful pretext and extreme bias…We recognize you as serious opponents and do not expect our campaign to terminate in a short period of time.”
