    In the past, this group of people has picketed soldiers' funerals who died in combat, and recently they protested at a vigil for the Sandy Hook Elementary Massacre.

    Their motivation for distasteful protests is justified by hate for the gay community, and they suggest in their doctrine that violent acts in our society can be attributed to God wanting to punish us for tolerating homosexuality in America......yeah.

    Not only would I like to see them classified as a hate group because they are in fact, hateful people, but also just because their logic is kind of dumb.

    If you'd like to add your two cents, go ahead and sign the petition.

    Peace and blessings!

    As much as I detest the Westboro Church group,I am unwilling to have their right of free speech limited on the grounds that many find it unpleasant and disgusting. Many would and have tried the same reasoning on Gays,blacks, ethnicities, religions, Kkk and many other groups. So I believe it is the job of getting a permit and the police to get the separation needed. I believe the same angels that showed at the funerals of Matthew Shepard and many servicemen, should stand as a blind and shield the grieving.

    The children will either grow up to be just as hateful, or kill themselves before leaving their teens. Take out the whole group and be done with it.

    The children deserve a shot to become decent human beings. They deserve their chance.
