UPDATE: HOAX from WBC: ANONYMOUS Threatens Westboro Baptist Church, Hate Group Responds


The hacker group known only as ANONYMOUS supposedly issued a firm cease and desist order to the hate group Westboro Baptist Church in this open letter:

TO THE CONGREGANTS OF 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.

Being such aggressive proponents for the Freedom of Speech & Freedom of Information as we are, we have hitherto allowed you to continue preaching your benighted gospel of hatred and your theatrical exhibitions of, not only your fascist views, but your utter lack of Christ-like attributes. You have condemned the men and women who serve, fight, and perish in the armed forces of your nation; you have prayed for and celebrated the deaths of young children, who are without fault; you have stood outside the United States National Holocaust Museum, condemning the men, women, and children who, despite their innocence, were annihilated by a tyrannical embodiment of fascism and unsubstantiated repugnance. Rather than allowing the deceased some degree of peace and respect, you instead choose to torment, harass, and assault those who grieve.

Your demonstrations and your unrelenting cascade of disparaging slurs, unfounded judgments, and prejudicial innuendos, which apparently apply to every individual numbered amongst the race of Man – except for yourselves – has frequently crossed the line which separates Freedom of Speech from deliberately utilizing the same tactics and methods of intimidation and mental & emotional abuse that have been previously exploited and employed by tyrants and dictators, fascists and terrorist organizations throughout history.

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.

In true form, Westboro responds:

UPDATE:

This was all a big stunt by the church to get media attention! Read the REAL ANONYMOUS press release here!

Blogger Tells Chick-Fil-A to “Get Mor Equal”


At GetMorEqual.com, an anonymous blogger has taken up the issue of Chick-Fil-A’s support of anti-gay hate groups.

The blogger tells Queerty:

So once Chick-Fil-A’s donations to anti-gay groups came out, I got to thinking about a way to poke some fun at them; boycotting is great, but it’s such a private endeavor. Anyway, I arrived at the idea of trying to co-opt their long-running ad campaign and give it a gay spin. Cows for equality, so to speak, boycotting Chick-Fil-A and spreading a message of LGBT tolerance and love. I ended up with this.

I love it! Let me know if there is anything I can do to help!

AP: Mormon image suffers after gay marriage fight


Wow…I am glad to hear that those who combat equality suffer for their prejudices.

From the Associated Press:

The Mormon church’s vigorous support for the California ballot measure that banned gay marriage last year has turned the Utah-based faith into a lightning rod for gay rights activism.

A nationwide “kiss-in” Saturday comes after gay couples in Salt Lake City, San Antonio and El Paso, Texas were arrested and cited for tresspassing or harrassed by police for publicly kissing.

In Utah, the July 9 trespassing incident occurred after a couple were observed by security guards on a downtown plaza owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The court case was dismissed, but the kiss sparked a community backlash and criticism of the church.

Church observers say the church’s intervention into California politics has left the faith’s image tarnished.
