As we’ve discussed here in the past and as most people in America are frightfully aware, the Westboro Baptist Church “hates fags.”
Last week, there were reports that the group, Anonymous was threatening to take down Westboro Baptist Church’s websites and online presence. Anonymous is most notorious for having taken down the credit card company sites during the Wikileaks scandals, and for their “Project Chanology” attacking actor Tom Cruise and the Church of Scientology. The letter that was publicized last week read:
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.
Then of course, the WBC replied in kind on their site:
Now comes the fun part…apparently in a play for attention (which WBC is also known for), they made this whole feud up. The actual Anonymous group posted a letter denying participation in this entire scheme. Thanks to Mediaite for spreading the truth!
We know that YOU in fact posted the Open Letter supposedly from Anonymous.
We know that you thrive on attention.
We know that you are short of money.
We know that this is a trap.
We know how you work. You don’t give a flying fart about what your God thinks. But you know that putting God and Fag in a sentence together is guaranteed to make someone angry. You push it. You really push it. But you stay within the law. And then when some poor fool snaps, you sue them for infringing upon your rights.
Some of Anonymous thinks you’re the worlds greatest Trolls. This is bollocks. You’re in it for the money.
No doubt some of us will fall for it. But know this: most of us don’t give a damn. You are shamelessly riding on the /b/andwagon after Anonymous’ recent mass media coverage in order to get more publicity and more idiots to sue.
Aparently, Anonymous has decided to “bitchslap” the Westboro Baptist Church by taking down their site. It’s actually been down a few days now, but this morning, this was what could be seen on their site, courtesy of Joe My God:
