THIS MAKES MY VERY HAPPY

The mysterious hackers group Anonymous, best known so far for their campaign against the Church of Scientology, has issued a stark warning to the Westboro Baptist Church.
We, the collective super-consciousness known as ANONYMOUS - the Voice of Free Speech & the Advocate of the People - have long heard you issue your venomous statements of hatred, and we have witnessed your flagrant and absurd displays of inimitable bigotry and intolerant fanaticism. We have always regarded you and your ilk as an assembly of graceless sociopaths and maniacal chauvinists & religious zealots, however benign, who act out for the sake of attention & in the name of religion. [snip]

ANONYMOUS cannot abide this behavior any longer. The time for us to be idle spectators in your inhumane treatment of fellow Man has reached its apex, and we shall now be moved to action. Thus, we give you a warning: Cease & desist your protest campaign in the year 2011, return to your homes in Kansas, & close your public Web sites.

Should you ignore this warning, you will meet with the vicious retaliatory arm of ANONYMOUS: We will target your public Websites, and the propaganda & detestable doctrine that you promote will be eradicated; the damage incurred will be irreversible, and neither your institution nor your congregation will ever be able to fully recover. It is in your best interest to comply now, while the option to do so is still being offered, because we will not relent until you cease the conduction & promotion of all your bigoted operations & doctrines.

The warning has been given. What happens from here shall be determined by you.

WE ARE ANONYMOUS. 
WE ARE LEGION.
 
WE DO NOT FORGIVE.
 
WE DO NOT FORGET.
 
EXPECT US.
This should be very interesting.

RELATED: Late last year Anonymous took credit for denial of service attacks that brought down the websites of Mastercard, Visa, and PayPal after the companies refused to process donations to Wikileaks.

  1. I'm looking forward to seeing this happen. You know Westboro is too stupid to take this seriously.

  3. Sadly, the Phelps clan is just crazy enough to take on this challenge. I can't wait to see what happens.

  4. I hope with all my being that this works. For one ignorant and arrogant bunch of fools, they cause far too much havoc and get way too much press time.

  5. While still somewhat conflicted on the whole concept of cyber attacks against people we disagree with, I must say it couldn't happen to a more deserving bunch.

    Could they also squeeze in a make-over for Shirley Phelps-Roper? All that crazy has left her with some nasty hair and a bad case of the ugly.

  6. So much for the concept of free speech, its so dangerous when any group loses its right to free speech. This organization is more detrimental than Westboro Baptist Church.

  7. Anon - I agree that free speech could be at risk but what the WBC does is no longer in the category of free speech. they left that long ago.

  8. I admire someone's bravery going against this group, chock full of attorneys just itching for a fight. After all this is how they get their money.

  9. Ur-spo - don't forget that Phelps and his daughter are both disbarred attorneys. They know exactly how far they can go when it comes to "free-speech."

    Most amusingly, before he lost his mind, Phelps was a civil-rights attorney who fought against racial discrimination in the 1960's. Once he found his perverted version of "God," he started preaching hate and was eventually disbarred.

  10. The Westboro Baptist Church will self immolate. No need to expend any energy or expense on trying to shut them up. This is one case where I believe they should be let alone to display to all what evil viscous subhumans they are.

  11. A taste of their own medicine at last!

  12. I agree that it is a taste of the WBC's own medicine but then seriously, Anonymous should not be billing themselves as the Voice of Free Speech & the Advocate of the People.

    I don't mind they shut WBC down in some ways, but don't propagate untruths about yourself. It makes them look weak.

  13. Latest news - Anonymous may not have written the original letter in the first place. Word is, Westboro made the whole thing up to garner publicity, which has been sagging of late.

  14. Had to share...

    Now it's getting really interesting.

  15. Brian - I had read that. I also learned that those My Marriage Matters commercials condemning Ashley Madison is actually AM getting around conservatives and tv sensors.

  16. I have no love for Ashley Madison (promoting infidelity is not something I can get behind), but it wouldn't surprise me.

    Westboro (if they're actually behind this) has sunk to a new low, here. Everyone thinks they're a joke, and they know it.

    They tried protesting at soldier's funeral in the town where the JTMF founder lives. No hotel in the area would have them and they were court-ordered to stay so far away from the funeral and the cemetery, that no one actually saw them. Their days are (thankfully) numbered and soon, no one will pay any attention to them at all.

  17. I meant, "something I CAN'T get behind..."
