Westboro Baptist Tweets it will Protest Sandy Hook Victims' Funerals, Hackers get Even
Soon after a Westboro Baptist leader announced the plans to picket funerals of Sandy Hook shooting victims a Hacker group posts personal information online.
The leader of the Westboro Baptist Church, an extremist organization that is known for picketing soldiers' funerals in protest of gay marriages - which they believe is the cause of everything evil - announced on Twitter Sunday it would picket funerals of Sandy Hook shooting victims.
Soon after the announcement that they would be "singing praise to God for the glory of his work in executing judgement," msnNOW reported that Hackers collective Anonymous posted church members' contact information, including phone numbers, addresses and e-mails, online.
According to an article on GlobalPost.com "it is unclear if they will actually be present, as the hate group is known for planning pickets and then not showing up, as they did after the Aurora, Colorado shooting, the Inquisitr reported."
The article said: There are also efforts being pulled together for counter protests to create "walls of love" around the funeral-goers, including one by Angel Action, a group that has volunteers dress in 10-foot wings to surround and shield the WBC's targets, the Daily Mail reported.
"Westboro Baptist Church is planning another attack of hateful words, protesting the funerals of the 20 children and 7 adults who died yesterday at Sandy Hook elementary school," Taylor Starr and Kelly Shannon, the group's Sandy Hook organizers, wrote in a posting, according to the Daily Mail. "You can not fight hate with hate, so continuing in Romaine Patterson's footsteps, if they do come here and try to protest we are going to put forth Angel Action."
