Phelps Clan off to Newtown

The Westboro Baptist Church did an “Ask Me Anything” on Reddit after announcing they would picket the funerals of the murdered children in Newtown. Someone posted “you are irrelevant” and people started signing on to it. Keep scrolling down to see the response. There’s at least one issue humanity can agree on.

Anonymous released the personal information of Westboro members, which is being celebrated as some sort of internet victory, but harassing members of WBC does nothing. They don’t lobby for guns, set mental health policy, or kill people. They’re complete scum. But spend your energy on something else. What they are planning in Newtown is so unconscionable and offensive I’m actually worried someone will lose it and hurt one of them.
