White House petitions against Westboro Baptist Church

Posted: Updated:

 

The only petition currently ahead of the one for immediate gun control legislation is one concerning Westboro Baptist Church.

The often inflammatory church has said they will picket the funerals of the Newtown shooting victims.

The group has also called the shooting an "act of god."

The petition with the most signatures concerning them would legally recognize them as a hate group.

Another started by the hacker collective anonymous is supporting the IRS investigating the church's tax-exempt status.
