By any standard definition this group is neither “Baptist” nor a “Church.” It needs to be called the Westboro CULT.

Why doesn’t anonymous do something useful, like hacking into their bank accounts and draining them.

Most of the adult male members of the group are attorneys, and the group makes money by filing nuisance lawsuits.

They send women and children to picket events, rather than risk physical confrontation themselves.

When their access is restricted, they sue on First Amendment grounds and get settlement money. If any members of their group are attacked, they sue and get settlement money.

The group is a business and their product is outrage.

If they label this a hate group, it is a bad precedent. Do they commit violence? They aren’t the KKK or Black Panthers. They are rotten and cruel and hateful but do we really want the Obama govt to determine what is and isn’t a church? I know Obama is already effectively doing this in regards to various orgs, but...

Maybe but I’ll give them a pass this one time. That Westboro bunch really pisses me off.

Anonymous vs. Westboro Baptist.

It’s like Code Pink vs. The New Black Panthers.

You hope neither is victorious and they totally destroy each other.

Westboro is little better than the homo-sickos they attack. Westboro’s methods fall right into the queers laps by making Christians look bad. You gotta wonder which side they are on since homos hate Christians too.

But you can’t call a leftist organization a “hate” group.

I don't have any particular love for Anonymous either. The whole lot of 'em (Westboro and Anonymous) should be put away.

After answering 20-30 civil lawsuits for each violation, even if you win every one of them, it’s a good bet you’d be broke.

Interesting to look at the list of names of the members of this group that includes their family connections. Westboro is essentially one big extended family, not a church membership in the normal sense.

Your friendly, faceless, neighborhood hacking group Anonymous has responded by doing what they do best: publishing private information, in this case, about the members of the Westboro Baptist Church.

A pox on both their houses.

Pardon my sarcasm, but that should make all the Obama voters very grateful. I have never in my life met such bigoted culture snobs as when I attended a social event in Connecticut.

I finally agree with Anonymous on something. Good for them.

“Anonymous has now published a list of Westboro Baptist Church members along with plenty of personal information such as home addresses, emails, and phone numbers. On the more legal end of the activism spectrum, the group is also pushing a petition to legally recognize the Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group. And what do you know, it’s already gotten the required number of signatures.”
