Westboro raises the ire of Anonymous

It was recently announced that the members of the Westboro Baptist Church are planning to picket the funerals of the children and adults who were killed in Newtown, Connecticut, on Friday.

As a response, Anonymous, the hacker collective, decided to respond with its own protest: publishing the names of the members of the church, with their phone numbers, email addresses and even home addresses.

Anonymous also posted a video detailing its views on Westboro and their actions.

But the members of the collective aren't the only ones taking issue with Westboro. There is also a US petition to have Westboro Baptist Church recognized as a hate group. The petition has nearly 100,000 signatures so far.
