So I don't even know where to begin with this. I guess the beginning is a fitting place. The Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) is an independent Baptist Church that was founded by Fred Phelps and at the time of its founding mainly consisted of members of his family. The group widely known for its extreme beliefs and homophobic tendencies is monitored as a hate group by the Anti-Defamation League. The group has been known to picket funerals such as Matthew Shepard's and on occasion have decimated the American Flag.
Most recently, the group is in the news over a confrontation with an anonymous hacking group fittingly called, Anonymous.
On February 16, an open letter to WBC claiming to be from Anonymous declared that enough is enough. The letter states that--although Anonymous is a staunch defender of the freedom of speech--WBC has crossed the line too often, and gives the church an ultimatum to cease and desist its activities and take down its websites. It ends with an ominous warning, "Should you ignore this warning, you will meet with the vicious retaliatory arm of ANONYMOUS: We will target your public Websites, and the propaganda and 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."WBC still wants to pick a fight with Anonymous even though they have said that they are not a part of the letter that was received by Westboro Baptist Church. It is even believed that WBC concocted the letter themselves! Check out a debate between Sarah a member of WBC and a member of Anonymous.
Anonymous, known as hacktivist who fight for freedom of speech and raid the internet with the intent to pummel those who they deem a threat to society by taking down their sites and waging war on them. Their opponents include the likes of The Church of Scientology and The New World Order on a large scale. Anonymous have also taken down sexual predators as well.
I'm sure by now most of you know the views of the Church of Scientology as well as many of it's (famous) members. However many of you may not know about the idea of the New World Order which is a theory in the extremest sense means alludes to a
secretive power elite with a globalist agenda is conspiring to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian world government — which replaces sovereign nation-states — and an all-encompassing propaganda that ideologizes its establishment as the culmination of history's progress
I just just cannot stand for ignorance. Now granted, we all at times make uniformed statements and even decisions but the Westboro Bapstist Church and their views just astound me. It angers me and upsets to be a Christian when there are people out their spouting such hate masked as God-Loving-People. There is no logic in what they do or their beliefs. I mean, when you have sites set up like GodHatesFags or YourPastorisaWhore and say things like "God will Kick your ass!" are you really doing what you believe god intended?? What do you guys think of this whole situation?? Also, check out Anonymous' letter to the New World Order after the jump!

We are Anonymous. You know who you are. The men behind the curtain, the overlord pulling at the strings of your puppets.
You hide and you plan and you scheme in the dark alleys; in the vehement anticipation that your draconic plans will come to fruitation. The dreams of a thousand men crystallized in one moment; one moment that approaches with every hour that passes. The time is upon us.
You know this. You have prepared. Perhaps you have concluded that the path you have set in motion will be the blueprint for events to come. In this you are probably correct.
You have shaped the Earth in your image. Shaped its' people, its' customs, its' morals. In your eyes the control is complete, your contrivance beyond absolute. The wheels of your hellion machination thundering close.
You have poisoned and corrupted this world, turning its' people into willing slaves for your own gain. Mass murder, torture, perjury, embezzlement, fraud, deception, treason. These are just a few of your many crimes against humanity. You see yourselves as a higher order, that rules are a concept to which you are foreign.
You are mistaken.
As you have watched and conspired over the aeons, we have watched. As you have pillaged and murdered and brainwashed, we have watched. As you have turned this world into a burning heath, we have watched.
And we have waited. We have waited too long. Gone is the time for words and diplomacy. Gone is the time for dismissal and comprimise.
Your undisputed tyranny over the people must come to an end. Anonymous has decided that you will no longer be in control. You will crumble, your proud society a fragment of its' apophthegmatic wealth. You are cowards, and Anonymous will show the world for what you are.
This is your only portent. You have forced our hand, and the call has been made. The drums of war sound, and we will meet in battle. We will strike hard, fast, and without mercy. You will not win this war, for you are fighting the very essence of humanity. It is everlasting and its' fury can no longer be contained.
We are Anonymous. We are many. We do not forgive; we do not forget. We are legion, and we will be victorious.
