Westboro Baptist Church is going to protest in Newtown, CT
My sister said: "Maybe now civilians will see why we have been fighting these lunatic hate-mongers who protest at military funerals saying that God killed them and that they are fags. Maybe this protest against completely innocent children, them saying God punished them, will wake up society and take down these crazies. I've had my battle with them. We won the battle, but seriously lost the war. They are still here."
They sang traditional hymns at her husband's funeral. The Patriot Guard ((www.patriotguard.org did an excellent job of shielding this group from us. However, WBC decided that no one can "shield" their voices.

Helen uncovered some additional information about the petition and asked me to delete the topic. Instead, I am going to place the new information here so everyone can read it -- we need to know things like thisa re going on!
A friend sent me an email and told me something to the effect that you did. She said that the purpose of the petition is to set a legal precedent, and that whoever made this petition wrote it up to trick conservatives to sign it
She said, "Part of what that group does is TRACK people that are "anti-gay". They work WITH the White House. They understand that the biggest enemy of the Westboro Baptist Church are the church-going Catholics (that they happen to be tracking). It sounds like it is from the Southern Poverty Law Center, or someone very clever who is affiliated and/or at least sympathetic to them.
