I'll gladly go on any media outlet and call the WBC a bunch of small minded lunatics, as I'm sure most adults would. The difference is I'm not going to come out and incriminate myself for hacking their website, which is also a completely rational thing to do.

To call the WBC courageous and Anonymous cowards in the same breath is truly despicable. One is shouting hate messages with an entire community of like-minded, misinformed, uneducated wingnuts behind them. The other is risking potential jail time to take down an organization which only exists to promote hate.

I think you have your judgement of who is a coward and who is courageous mixed up.


I agree that WBC spouts off uninformed hate messages and that it should not be allowed. Still to me the fact that WBC go out and face the public, despite everyone hating WBC just as hard as WBC hate speech is courageous. Even dangerous for them to some extent I'm sure.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

Oh..you say WBC has more guts...well..sorry, you'd be wrong. Next you'll tell me the KKK has guts too. "Special" Ed indeed.


Sorry to get your panties bunched up in a knot.

First of all, I go commando. Second of all, I am sincerely questioning your definition of "courageous" as it relates to these hate-mongers.

No offence but your post seems just as hateful as the speech you seem so up in arms about. I mainly feel bad for the WBC children who simply don't know any better. It should be considered child abuse to teach hate to children and kids should be removed from such senarios.

Most children of "religious zealots" have little choice or chance .. it is all a matter of degree .. it should be considered child abuse to teach children falsehoods and racist views as well ..

Petition urges White House to classify Westboro church as hate group.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - More than 475,000 people have signed petitions asking the White House to crack down on Westboro Baptist Church after the group, known for holding anti-gay demonstrations at funerals, threatened to picket in Newtown, Connecticut.

Newtown was the site of a school massacre on December 14 in which 20 young children and six adults were killed.
Five petitions posted on the White House website since the shootings have asked the government to name the church, based in Topeka, Kansas, as a hate group or end its tax-exempt status. The requests were among the most popular on the White House site on Thursday.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights organization, has called the church "arguably the most obnoxious and rabid hate group in America" because of the anti-gay signs its members have carried at hundreds of military funerals. The protests reflect their view that God is punishing America for tolerance of gays and lesbians.

The church has successfully defended its right to free speech in court. The church could not be immediately reached for comment.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment on whether it would address the petitions.

The White House has a policy of responding to petitions that reach a threshold of 25,000 signatures but does not comment on certain law enforcement issues that are within the jurisdiction of federal agencies or courts, according to its website.

Obama last week asked Americans to pressure Congress to help tighten gun laws. He responded after several hundred thousand people signed a dozen petitions calling for tougher gun laws following the Newtown attack.

Twenty-year-old Adam Lanza used a military-style assault rifle to kill 20 elementary school children and seven adults, including his mother shot earlier at the family home, then he took his own life.

Obama has called for Congress to approve a ban on the sale of military-style assault weapons and a ban on the sale of high-capacity ammunition clips, as well as measures to ensure background checks for gun purchases at gun shows.

Very nice to see all three petitions have reached the minimum threshold of 25,000 signatures to be officially considered. Hopefully the world will be rid of this filth soon.
