First and foremost, I refuse to link anything back to that hateful group and give them even more unnecessary coverage. In light of recent events the Westboro Baptist Church has reached an all time new low. It's really disgusting. Why these people haven't been classified as a hate group is beyond me.
In case you haven't heard, Westboro Baptist Church is picketing the funerals of the people who died in Friday's shooting....the CHILDREN'S funerals. Why? I dunno, something about homosexuality and God or something. Yea... it's one thing to what could be considered wrong in the name of "religion," but it's an entirely different thing to use the deaths of innocent children to gain publicity for some twisted sick organization. Blech.
Luckily there are some people out there who are taking a stand. People are planning to form a silent perimeter of people around the funerals of the victims to prevent the WBC from picketing. Heck yea. Stand strong my friends!
But one kid took it a step further after discovering the addresses of a few WBC members...
On Sunday, [Anonymous] posted the names and addresses of members of the extremist Westboro Baptist Church after the hate group announced plans to picket Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Conn., where 26 people were gunned down Friday.
Anonymous posted the following two messages on Twitter on the weekend: “Dear WBC Site Admin, you should really work on securing your personal infos. Er, too late…”
Earlier, it tweeted: “It’s so nice of #WBC to provide the internet with a list of their twitter handles..”
The list of the church members, which also includes email addresses and work numbers, can be easily accessed on sites like armywtfmoments.com. (Via)
