     They can petition what they want it is free speech....just like the folks at WBC can spew what they want.....the SCOTUS has already ruled what they spew as free speech.

    I signed that petition - I thiink they need to be categorized accordingly and do not deserve the tax benefits they have been receiving.  

    This is petition is already the most popular one at the site, with the most signatures ever.

    I am all for free speech, but these people are the most deranged "church" I've ever seen.

    Their antics certainly fit the definition of a hate group, so they should be classified as such.

    Quoting yourspecialkid:

     So should we classify YOU as a hate group too?  The free speech door has to swing both ways...............unless you really want to give someone the authority to decide what is hate speech.....I am sure the folks at WBC would feel YOU are a hater.

    This is WHY the SCOTUS said they are using their right of free speech.

    I am not supporting the WBC...I think they are awful..........BUT I will...to my last breath...support their right to free speech.......lest I lose mine.

    Some people have the most ridiculous ideas of what they can accomplish with these petitions.
