Funeral Protests Planned By Hate Group
I learned this evening that the hate group “Westboro Baptist Church” (not that I think you can call these people a church) has released information that they are planning to picket the funerals of the victims of Friday’s tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
Everyone here at Spring’s Haven denounces these hateful insensitive actions and we ask for compassion as this community grieves.
Even members of Anonymous have begun an Operation against the Church to discourage them from protesting at the school and compounding the misery already experienced by Newtown residents.
There are several things you can do to help stop this devastating action to inflict more pain on these parents, families and friends of these precious victims.
- If you live near Newtown, Connecticut organize a “Human Wall” to peacefully block this hate group from getting anywhere near these funerals. Efforts like this have been successful in the past (Huffington Post) and have overshadowed the hate from this group.
- Sign a petition on Whitehouse.gov to Legally recognize Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group.
- Visit CNN to find out how you can provide help for the community of Newtown. They have a great list of organizations who are sharing a wide range of support to families and the community in general.
- Share these efforts with others and spread the news!
This hate group must not be allowed to inflict their ignorant bigotry and hate on this community. They have already suffered so much and no one should remain silent and allow this to happen. Please help provide your peaceful support to these efforts.
