Anonymous

Anonymous targeted the Westboro Baptist Church after members announce plans to picket Sandy Hook Elementary School, where a gunman killed 20 school children and six adults on Friday, Dec. 14.  The church group planned on picketing the school area and the funerals of the fallen people.

The tweet stating

“Westboro will picket Sandy Hook Elementary School to sing praise to God for the glory of his work in executing his judgment.”

In response, Anonymous took matters into their own hands releasing personal contact information of members of the Westboro Baptist Church, including the home address, email address and phone number of numerous church members.

Anonymous is also promoting a petition at whitehouse.gov asking the Obama administration to legally recognize the Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group.  It should be noted that The Southern Poverty Law Center already recognizes Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group.

Promoting the petition, Anonymous ‏@YourAnonNews sent the following tweet Saturday night:

“If the #US govt were to officially recognize the #WBC as a hate group, maybe they would finally lose their tax exempt status.”

The Westboro Baptist Church is an anti-gay Christian fundamentalist church notorious for its “God Hates Fags” signs and the picketing of soldiers’ funerals.  The Westboro Baptist Church has been banned from picketing at several places, though a Supreme Court ruled that the group is allowed to picket funerals. Despite the ruling, several communities and states have passed the laws that require picketers to remain a certain distance away from the funeral.

This is one hack I don’t think Anonymous is going to get much guff over as they have made many people happy by standing up to this group.
