    About.com Gay LifeThe infamous hacking collective Anonymous has lived up to its name, having successfully evaded the FBI and every other defense agency, including private firms like HBGary. But they are anything but subtle. Bored with the ease at which it brought HBGary to its knees, the group has moved on to another target, the anti-gay bullhorn Westboro Baptist Church.

    "Bring it!" Westboro Baptist Church said after Anonymous said they would target the church if they did not stop their public protests. If you recall, Westboro is infamous for crashing military funerals with sign and chants blaming soldier deaths on God's wrath for America's acceptance of homosexuality.

    Anonymous chose to use the same brazen methods of attack:
    "We have always regarded you and your ilk as an assembly of graceless sociopaths and maniacal chauvinists & religious zealots, however benign, who act out for the sake of attention & in the name of religion," Anonymous wrote to Westboro.

    Westboro's response was as juvenile as their protest signs: You're "a puddle of pimple-faced nerds," they barked back. Sounds like virtual fighting words to me. We'll see if Anonymous makes good on their charge and if Westboro can come up with something no one else has been able to figure out: how to actually beat Anonymous

    These guys are bat shit crazy..seriously. I saw an interview with Fred Phelps wife at one point a few years ago on some daytime talk show and just the expression on her face you could tell she had more than a few screws loose. It also didn't help her image everytime she opened her mouth and spoke for that matter..

    The saddest part is how brainwashed their children have turned out to be, even after Fred Phelps finally kicks the bucket, (which cant come soon enough) theres gonna be that sick little twisted seed left behind.

    Sad sad sad people.. there's really no excuse for this kind of organized lunacy

    And its protected too which is the sad part. Have you seen the documentary on them? Thier daughters are pretty much brainwashed to believe all this and don't allow themselves to date and a child was hit by an object thrown by someone. I think it was a slurpee cup, but still.

    Keep up with the news.
    Anon has already said that they never sent anything to WBC until they sent the letter telling them that they didn't send it.

    Anon has bigger things to do.
    However, Anon wont forget the insult to them. One day Anon will destroy WBC till then try not believing everything that crazed psycho groups say..

    Aww way to burst my hope bubble lol.. I did read up on it and find it interesting that if WBC did write the letter themselves that they refer to their own actions as, "inimitable bigotry and intolerant fanaticism." Is Westboro really that self-aware? Maybe a third party wrote it?

    Sources say that email came from their own servers.
    So unless someone has already hacked them an is running a malware off their servers that allows them access to their server..
