Great news people, and I think the picture speaks for itself

As of today, over the course of very little time, over a hundred thousand signatures have already been made, with only twentyfive thousand being needed, to have the WBC legally recognized as a hate group instead of a church.

The people of America win.

This is in NO way editted, link can be found here:

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TD:
Legally recognize Westboro Baptist Church as a hate
group.
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.
Created: Dewitt.

I have a Westboro Baptist Church story of my own.

My cousin was shot and killed in an ambush in Iraq May 12, 2007.
These WBC assholes decide it would be a good idea to attempt to protest at his funeral.
Some biker Vietnam vets along with some Pagans(serious criminals) come out to the funeral for support.
A few WBC bastards decide to show their face outside the high school where the memorial service was being held.
I'm standing outside waiting for the service to begin and I see these bikers heading over to "discourage" the protesters.
These WBC cunts and I both look over to see what the sheriffs deputy is going to do about this.......
He takes one look at this situation.....gets in his car and proceeds to drive around to the back of the high school.
The WBC protesters immediately ran and got in their cars and left.
The look on their asshole faces when the sheriffs deputy left is something I will remember FOREVER, and the satisfaction that I felt that day when common ******* decency won out over legal semantics made that terrible day a little easier to cope with.

TL;DR Westboro Baptist Church is filled with terrible people.

I wonder if you read the information on the website you linked to or if you just misunderstood what it said. Just because the petition garnered X signatures doesn't mean it will now be law, it means that he White House will address the issue.
""The right to petition your government is guaranteed by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. We the People provides a new way to petition the Obama magical fairy princessistration to take action on a range of important issues facing our country. We created We the People because we want to hear from you. If a petition gets enough support, White House staff will review it, ensure it’s sent to the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response."

With how much ******** the WBC has thrown out there, and the fact that already over four times the needed amount for the petition to go through with it are signed will probably leave it with a good chance to be passed. Especially considering the fact that it still has 28 days left to gather even MORE signatures will likely only make it better.

Remember, it's democracy: if the majority rules for it, the majority wins.

Sorry, but people signing a digital petition will have zero effect on this. It will take more than a petition to actually stop them.
Passed? What will be passed? There is no bill on the records to be voted on, and no senator or congressman has stepped forward to sponsor a bill. I'm not too sure you understand how the legal system works in the US.

While it is true that is takes more than a petition, the fact that there are no less than FIVE petitions (All of which are going to get at least 25,000 signatures) requesting that the WBC be reclassified as a hate group and/or lose their tax-exempt status will hopefully make someone sit up and take notice.

I go to school with the children of the Westboro Baptist Church, and all of this is really sad. How brainwashed the younger generation of the church is because of the bigoted, closed-minded, abhorrent "leader" Fred Phelps.
I'm gay, and the kids are very kind and intelligent people. They hold open doors for people, get straight A's, all the teachers LOVE them...
I just feel awful for those kids. Their lives are going to be horrible because of that dick licker, Fred.

Pic related, religious group placed this under my windsheild wiper. Apparently I'm a well known fag.

One time at my mosque, a priest came and talked about Phelps and his group. First time I heard of him, never thought I would hear again. He was talking about how they were protesting at an army funeral, and then when the guys army buddies and a bike gang heard about it, it took them all they had to stop violence. Apparently Westboro makes money by suing people. brought to you by your friendly neighborhood musliman.

I may be wrong here but in that "Ticket to Hell" it says tat all fornicators will go to hell. By that logic all of those kids parents will be going to hell as well along with their grandparents and so on. The majority of people since the beginning of humanity will be in Hell. Their logic...I don't understand it.

For those whodon't know, allow me to explain the WBC

"God hates Fags"
"God hates Sweden"
"God hates the UK"
"God hates America"
"God hates Dead Soldiers"
"God hates Dead Children"

They're also a family of inbred degenerates from mainly two families, the Phelpses and the Ropers.
Their leader, Fred Phelps, was an abusive, disgusting father who beat his wife and children.
They completely disown any member of their family who disagrees with the church.

What else..

"Thank God for 9/11"
In the united states, yes, there is the right to assembly, and freedom of speech, and it is generally unlimited, however, there are points you do not cross. Even charter members of the KKK were more reasonable.

These people are sick, they take their rights for granted, and generally, I've tolerated them until recently. Now they're picketing genocide victims (something that sorta hits close to home to me) They are thanking god for dead Children. This isn't alright, man.
Surprisingly, they aren't racist, though.

tl;dr They're inbred sociopaths with zero understanding of the world around them.
>inb4 they're just trolling.
Watch the interviews with people who've left the church & the family.

just watched it, I don't know what's worse, the fact that they are passing all this hate onto their children, that they are willing to put their children at risk like they do, or that bit about them being willing to cast out their 7 year old son Bo'drane(however the hell you spell it) like they did with their (at the time) 21 year old daughter Lauren. Well at least Lauren has the sense to not go back to them and I'm sure if the do kick out Bo'drane, she would take him in.
And unlike Westboro, it seems ABC told both sides of the story.

Watching America's most hated family in crisis right now, they are talking about how they think Obama is the antichrist, saying that he fit's all the descriptors, and honestly, being a Christian man myself, He fits only 3 far as I can tell, He claims peace, He is persuasive (but hell Nixon was more persuasive than him), he supports Palestine(which would be an attack against Isreal and it being the land of God's people, yada yada you get what I'm saying)
I gotta say though, just by looking at this woman, you canh tell she's crazy, there's just something about her eyes
