The Westboro Baptist Church announced that it was going to picket the funerals of Sandy Hook Elementary shooting victims. Not only does this make my skin crawl, but the very thought of their twisted hatred coming within miles of the families who lost innocent, sweet and pure children to a brutal and heinous crime makes me physically ill. Their corrupt and disgusting nature is disturbing, even more so that they call themselves Christians, and I can't fathom the thought of them being allowed to protest these deaths. (Side note: The more I think about the them, the more sad I am for them. How did they let themselves become so misled that they could even begin to think that what they were doing was right, let alone God's work? It's a tragedy...)

In walks the group Anonymous. If you don't know who they are, check them out here. I'm not saying that I agree with everything that they've done or are doing, however.... when I found out about their declared war against the Westboro Baptist Church, I couldn't help but smile a tiny bit. So far, they've hacked their website and posted all the personal information about all their members. They've also been strongly petitioning the US to formally recognize the church as a hate group and have all the required signatures for a response from the White House. And it's only been two days. I wonder how far it's going to go...

Here's a clip from the video if you don't feel like listening to the whole thing.

"Since your one-dimensional thought protocol will conform not to any modern logic, we will not debate, argue, or attempt to reason with you. Instead, we have unanimously deemed your organization to be harmful to the population of The United States of America, and have therefore decided to execute an agenda of action which will progressively dismantle your institution of deceitful pretext and extreme bias, and cease when your zealotry runs dry. We recognize you as serious opponents, and do not expect our campaign to terminate in a short period of time. Attrition is our weapon, and we will waste no time, money, effort, and enjoyment, in tearing your resolve into pieces, as with exposing the incongruity of your distorted faith...We will not allow you to corrupt the minds of America with your seeds of hatred. We will not allow you to inspire aggression to the social factions which you deem inferior. We will render you obsolete. We will destroy you. We are coming."

Intense? I'd be scared.
