Anonymous Publishes WBC Personal Info

Westboro Baptist Church members are feeling the wrath of hacktivist group Anonymous. Thanks to the masked members of one of the world's most mysterious groups, WBC members are no longer able to protest at funerals anonymously!

Anonymous

When Westboro Baptist Church leaders announced plans to protest at the funerals of those lost in last week's Connecticut school shooting, many cursed their name, but few could do anything about it. However, Anonymous, a hacktivist group known for donning Guy Fawkes masks when appearing in public, jumped into action.

In a video message to WBC members, Anonymous announced its intent Saturday, stating, "We will not allow you to corrupt the minds of America with your seeds of hatred. We will not allow you to inspire aggression to the social factions which you deem inferior. We will render you obsolete. We will destroy you. We are coming."

Anonymous has made good on its threat, using the hashtag #OpWestBoro to tweet personal information about Westboro Baptist Church members to the masses. A sample tweet posted Tuesday night, which reveals the location of WBC members, reads, "Motel 6 Hartford - Southington, 625 Queen Street, Southington, CT 06489 Rooms 34 and 16 confirmed go now and rally."

"We aren't trying to violate #WBC's civil rights," another tweet explained. "We're just trying to make the best use of ours. And we're non-violent. They hate that."

CNET reports that Anonymous' "data dump included the names, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and physical addresses of dozens of alleged members of the religious organization. The group did not indicate where or how it acquired the data."

Promising that it is far from done, another tweet from the Anonymous group posted Friday night reads, "By the time we've swallowed the Westboro Baptist Church & shat out their remains, we will be prepared to fry much larger fascist fish."

How do you feel about Anonymous publishing Westboro Baptist Church members' private info?

Yes! Congratulations, Anonymous! The WBC has been "outed." The hoods have been taken off the KKK. The septic tank has been pumped. The WBC is nothing more than a living, breathing hate crime. Now, go fry some bigger fascist fish. You make the call, but Limbaugh, Beck, Palin, and all of Faux News should be prime targets.

Westboro Baptist Church is about as far from being Christian as one might imagine, this side of Anton LeVey. I've no idea how they can possibly reconcile their actions with the teachings of Christ. As a group, they seem to measure their worth by how many others express spite against them. Few things would seem as appropriately karmic in response as Anonymous's effort to allow people to address the membership of the Westboro Baptist Church directly. Fervor is not the same thing as righteousness.

America has been searching for an option to shut these WBC freaks the hell up. Anonymous has found a game to play with them. It's non-violent, although perhaps residing in a legal 'gray area'. The best part is the fact that those of us that have witnessed the hate spread by the WBC personally can watch as they are brought down.
