Right wing hate rears its ugly head again via hate group Westboro Baptist Church, which plans to celebrate “God executing His judgment” in the horrific Sandy Hook Elementary shooting massacre. The group plans to picket outside the school and funerals of six and seven year old kids. What a disgrace.
Here are some tweets from member Shirley Phelps-Roper:

Westboro will picket Sandy Hook Elementary School to sing praise to God for the glory of his work in executing his judgment.

A counter protest is the only way to fight their disgusting protest and mission. Can we let the parents and families grieve in peace for their children and the adults who were senselessly murdered by an animal named Adam Lanza? This is simply beyond words.
Salon: Hacker collective Anonymous were swift to respond, releasing private information of Westboro members including email addresses, phone numbers and home addresses. This video, decrying the church for spreading “seeds of hatred.” The video warns, “We will destroy you. We are coming.” Click to watch video:
Mother Jones has an interesting article about more guns, more mass shootings out that speaks volumes to the siege this country has found itself under. Westboro Baptist Church is helping to foment the hatred simmering in some would-be gunmen. We need gun control, not fomenting hatred.
