Westboro Baptist Church hacked by Anonymous after promising to travel to Newtown, Connecticut to publicly celebrate the death of schoolchildrenDecember 16, 2012
“God Hates Fags,” the self-monikered Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), promised yesterday to picket at the scene of the Newtown, Connecticut elementary school shooting. Shortly thereafter, Anonymous, the Internet “hacktivist” collective took credit for hacking and taking down the Westboro Baptist Church’s websites.
The Westboro Baptist Church is a Southern Poverty Law Center certified anti-gay hate group known for protesting and picketing the funerals of LGBT people, soldiers, and celebrities, to spread their messages of hate.
“Westboro will picket Sandy Hook Elementary School to sing praise to God for the glory of his work in executing his judgment,” Shirley Phelps-Roper of the WBC stated via Twitter.
This is not the first time Anonymous has hacked the Westboro Baptist Church. In early 2011, Anonymous threatened the WBC it would take down their Internet presence if they did not comply with their directive to “Cease & desist your protest campaign,” and “close your public Web sites.” Anonymous claimed the “damage incurred will be irreversible, and neither your institution nor your congregation will ever be able to fully recover.” Indeed, the WBC network was down for months.

Let’s hope it’s down for months again.
