Like many of you, I have wept on and off since I heard the first reports last Friday about the children massacred in their classrooms, by a villian armed to the hilt. I can tell you this, the thought of the little ones in their tiny chairs, with their little smiles, learning colors and their ABC’s only to meet such an end is a picture I cannot shake.
Yes, we should have responsible gun ownership. And Yes, we should have a watch on troubled youth who may snap. Yes, we all turn to prayer, look for answers, cry for the pain of the parents, and value our lives a little more at the cost of the Newtown children. We expect this to be a nation of empathy for this horror. We group together to hold each other up in spirit.
I do not have answers, and thats for another blog post. This is about what is WRONG with fear and hate mongers who spew their venom at innocents around the USA.
These families should NOT have to deal with the likes of the Westboro Baptist Church and their insidious rantings against the innocents in their “worship” of God. But, WBC pledges to picket and reign hate onto the funerals of these innocent children in Connecticut.
WTH? WHY? WHAT is their philosphy you ask? Their twitter post said it all on December 15, posted by Shirley Phelps -Roper, the leader of the WBC:
“Westboro will picket Sandy Hook Elementary School to sing praise to God for the glory of his work in executing his judgement”
I AM NOT KIDDING.
The WBC says the kids were slain due to the sins of the gay marriages (and other crimes against the bible) purporting that CT brought on the wrath of “God”. At least their interpretation of “God”. Their signs say things like “GOD SENT THE SHOOTER” and they spew their Primitive Baptist rants whenever thay can. We have seen the WBC, who are mostly all related to each other and less than 100 members deep, picket the funerals of soldiers, vigils and other innocent gatherings if they think they go against the “God Of Glory”. Their leader says that the children didn’t stand a chance on this earth, and they are better off dead. And the WBC will stand at your graveside, with your mother crying and scream their hatred over you.
The WBC has pissed off the wrong group this time. The “Hacktivist” group Anonymous has set their sights through the twittersphere and their followers to shut down WBC. In a video pledge online, the Anonymous group has pledged the following:

Hello, Westboro Baptist Church.
Allow us to introduce ourselves. We are Anonymous.
As you may not have acknowledged our existence, we, on the otherhand, have recognized yours. We have seen your depraved methods of disseminating your message of hate throughout The United States of America. We have witnessed you defaming the memories of those who sacrificed themselves for the security of our nation, disrupting the peace of the educational environment within high schools and universities, breeding hatred within the fragile minds of your own next of kin, desecrating the name of God by protesting in the proximity of churches and synagogues, and mangling the biblical text to conform in accordance with your malevolent cause.
Your pseudo-faith is abhorrent, and your leaders, repugnant. Your impact and cause is hazardous to the lives of millions and you fail to see the wrong in promoting the deaths of innocent people. You are self-appointed servants of God who rewrite the words of His sacred scripture to adhere to your prejudice. Your hatred supersedes your faith, and you use faith to promote your hatred.
Since your one-dimensional thought protocol will conform not to any modern logic, 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 have therefore decided to execute an agenda of action which will progressively dismantle your institution of deceitful pretext and extreme bias, and cease when your zealotry runs dry. We recognize you as serious opponents, and do not expect our campaign to terminate in a short period of time. Attrition is our weapon, and we will waste no time, money, effort, and enjoyment, in tearing your resolve into pieces, as with exposing the incongruity of your distorted faith.
Anonymous possesses a plethora of information within our network about the many divisions of Christianity and numerous other religious doctrines. Many of us are versed in the biblical text, and we can identify each and every of your violations of scripture. You abuse the Holy Bible which you do not fully comprehend and know not of the thousands of authors to impose upon other people when you can simply coalesce with your loved ones and live in the manner you deem plausible. You engage in reciprocal fornication with another man and preach adultery as a sin. You, Shirley Lynn Phelps-Roper violated Deuteronomy 5:18. As a result, your son Sam is the living, breathing proof of your act of simple loneliness. Simply put, it takes not a genius to realize an arrogant woman’s loose moral string, and its predilection to progressively wither and fray.

Everyone is equal.
We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not Forgive.
We do not Forget.
What do I like about this? Is that Anonymous has the cohonas to stand up and take down, not through violence but intellectually, with decorum, the WBC vehicles of hate. Their mission of #OpFu*kWBC, #occupynewtown, #GodHatesWBC and other Twitter handles, gathers their members and supporters online to go and support the anti-WBC position.
In the last 24 hours, the Anon members have hacked and taken over their leader’s twitter feed, relacing the avatar with a “Pray for Newtown” pic, they have reportedly replaced all of their screensavers with images of gay porn, and hacked into their servers to take their websites down.
Support is everywhere- take these comments for instance:
One of their tactics is to publish all of the most personal information of members, leaders and servants of the WBC in order to strong arm them into shutting the hell up. In layers upon layers, Anonymous has over 2 days posted such info about the church, and virtually mobilized an army on twitter to form a peaceful human shield between the CT victims processions and the WBC.
Their reach is great. Their message powerful, yet they tell the followers to “do not shout at #WBC in front of funeral proceedings, respect families, and form a silent human wall to sheild them from hate”
Bravo, Anonymous, Bravo.
