Petition To Legally Declare Westboro Baptist Church A Hate Group Gets Over 280,000 Signatures
The shady group of prejudice people who call themselves Christians at Westboro Baptist Church are one step closer to getting what has been coming their way for quite some time.
From protesting at the funerals of slain soldiers who sacrificed their lives in battle, to making plans for an invasion of the memorial services for the innocent children of Sandy Hook Elementary School that lost their lives in a recent senseless shooting, the public has reached its boiling point with Westboro Baptist and are ready to do something about it.
This petition currently posted on the White House “We The People” website is calling for Westboro Baptist Church to be legally labeled as a hate group for their consistently offensive and blatantly prejudice acts of random ridiculousness.
At least 25,000 signatures were required by January 1, 2013 in order to gain consideration from the White House, and the signature count is already at 289,000 and climbing.
