Sign Petition to Recognize Westboro Church as Hate Group
Finally a petition I can get behind & support! Won't you sign it too?
More than 300 thousand people have signed the petition urging the White House to classify the Westboro Baptist Church as a Hate Group.
This is in response to the groups most recent threat to picket funerals of the mass shooting victims in Newtown, Connecticut.
To most of the public they are also the group known for holding anti-gay demonstrations at military funerals, as a hate group or end its tax-exempt status.
The Westboro group claims their protests of funerals are a reflection of their view that God is punishing Americans for tolerance of gays and lesbians.
Sadly, their right to protest was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Even the Southern Poverty Law Center civil rights organization has called the Kansas-based church, quote, "arguably the most obnoxious and rabid hate group in America."
Well now we have a way to retaliate!
