Petition To Label Westboro Baptist Church As A Hate Group Is White House's Most Popular

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayPolitik

We hate to even mention the Westboro Baptist Church at all, but when we heard about this, we just couldn't pass it up!

A petition on the We The People website to legally recognize the "church" as a hate group has officially become the site's most popular petition in White House history.

In just 12 days, it has received over 270,000 signatures, which means it will be guaranteed a response from the White House (25,000 signatures within 30 days are required to achieve this). This comes just days after the disgusting group attempted to protest the funerals of those killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings.

The petition reads:

"This group has been recognized as a hate group by organizations, such as The Southern Poverty Law Center, and has repeatedly displayed the actions typical of hate groups.

Their actions have been directed at many groups, including homosexuals, military, Jewish people and even other Christians. They pose a threat to the welfare and treatment of others and will not improve without some form of imposed regulation."

We have been so disgusted by this vile group over the past few years that we've tried to not even give them the satisfaction of any publicity, however, this one is important!

Sign the petition HERE and forward it on to your friends!

    As much as I hate to play devil's advocate in this case (they protested my cousin's military funeral this year), the Supreme Court upheld their right to protest, and they're doing so under religious beliefs. Both their religion AND their right to protest are protected in the Bill of Rights.

    If we silence them, then who's next? It's always the unpopular speech that needs to be protected, because who's to say what you or I say tomorrow will be deemed "unpopular" and therefore targeted?

    Re: Ellen – It is a fine line, but there is a difference between free speech and promoting hate.

    Re: rosebud99 – AGREE! I liked the post that Ellen – made because it made me think, but I think this is on the same line as the whole Chik-fil-A scandal. There's a difference between free speech and promoting hate!!! I love that!

    As much as I hate WBC, I hate anything that remotely appears to advocate censorship even more. This is a misguided proposal. "Hate speech" is just that, SPEECH. The WBC does not incite to violence, as retarded and inbred as they may be <<=== Free Speech.

    I would not call them a church. They are mainly one family (the Phelps), the wackos that agreed to wed said family members, their offspring and a few random crazies that joined in. I agree with those that have said free speech and hateful speech are two different things. They are a hate group and should be legally labeled as one. I'm ashamed to live an hour away from their base camp, let alone in the same state as them.

    Re: Ellen – They are not a peaceful organization their "protests" are not related to the events they are protesting. They are a HATE group and the most HATED family in America. What is the outcome of their protesting?! What is the outcome of protesting Funerals?! There is no positive outcome and they are just spewing their hatred to rile up others. Just Imagine Fred Phelps was Adolf Hitler in 2012 and he was spewing the same hatred against Jews, Pols, Gays, Disabled, Mental Patients, etc. There must be a line drawn on Hate and it's clear Fred Phelps and his brainwashed family abuse that line!

    While I do not have any children, I do have a beloved granddaughter by my husband's son and if for some reason she was killed and these wackos came and protested at her funeral, I would hit them in the face as hard as I could and go to jail if I had to.

    This group is disgusting, there is a difference between hate and freedom of speech, especially if it involved protesting childrens funerals and are beloved military.

    I am a former member of WBC. I left the church because of sexual abuse and violence. Some of the members of the church have a suicide pact and have all agreed to commit suicide if ever cornered such as Jonestown . Please help me save the children that are being victimized by WBC.

    Hi, My name is Melinda Schroeder. I am a former resident of Topeka, Ks and a former member of the WBC. I left the church in 1996 after being sexually assaulted by one of the male members. I have remained in contact with a few of the members and have learned that some members of the church have created a suicide pact and plan to drink cyanide poison if ever cornered similar to what happened in Jonestown. Some of the members also have military style assault weapons and have trained extensively in their use. Please help me save the children that are still in the congregation before their minds are filled with hate also.
