TO THE CONGREGANTS OF WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH: / We, the collective super-consciousness known as ANONYMOUS - the Voice of Free Speech & the Advocate of the People - have long heard. The Topeka, Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) is a small virulently homophobic, anti-Semitic hate group that regularly stages protests around the country, often several times a week. The group pickets institutions and individuals they think suppor t homosexuality or otherwise subvert what they believe is God’s law.
Members of Westboro Baptist Church, known for protesting at funerals of fallen U.S. service men and women, might be facing a hacked website soon. [See updates below]
The group of controversial protesters from Kansas, which responded to last month's shooting rampage in Tucson with 'thank God for the shooter — 6 dead,' has been threatened by the notorious collective of unnamed Internet-hacking activists calling itself 'Anonymous,' which vows to inflict 'irreversible' damage to the hate group's website.
You might remember Anonymous, the 'hactivist' group that successfully disabled sites backed by the regime of former Egypt president Hosni Mubarak before he was swept from power by protesters, in addition to disrupting a number of websites in support of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. The group has proven it's capable of following through on its threats.
In a sharply worded open letter, Anonymous called the small group of Westboro Baptist Church members 'an assembly of graceless sociopaths and maniacal chauvinists and religious zealots,' citing the way the group has condemned men and women who have died in the armed forces, as well as 'prayed for and celebrated the deaths of young children.'
The Anonymous hackers continued with a warning: 'Cease and desist your protest campaign in the year 2011, return to your homes in Kansas, & close your public websites.' The group states that 'the damage incurred will be irreversible, and neither your institution nor your congregation will ever be able to fully recover.'
Update 1: Megan Phelps-Roper, granddaughter of Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps, offered this defiant tweet in response to the 'Anonymous' threat:
Update 2: Now the 'Anonymous' website is accusing the Westboro Baptist Church of posting that open letter threatening the church as a publicity stunt. In a post dated 2/18, (alleged) members of Anonymous posted, 'We know that YOU in fact posted the Open Letter supposedly from Anonymous.' And in another post from today (2/20/11), the Anonymous group said 'we're a bit groggy and don't remember sending it.' Because the Anonymous site 'uses an open-posting concept,' it's hard to tell who's posting what. The Anonymous group is, well, anonymous, but we're still trying to find out what the real story is here.
What do you think, readers? Does the First Amendment allow the Westboro Baptist Church the right to express its views, however repugnant? Please vote in this poll, and then let's discuss this in the comments.

Inactive Membership Letter
Inactive Membership letter (sample) free to download, modify and print 24/7 for your church administration office.
This letter is a sample that can easily be customized to fit what your church needs when a member(s) makes a decision to leave the church for whatever reason and becomes inactive. Savage 99 serial number dates smith corona.
This letter is a way of letting your inactive member(s) know that he or she will be missed and will always be welcomed back as an active member if they decide to do so.
What is an active member? An active member is one who attends regularly at the worship service, maybe sings in the choir, attends Bible or Sunday School classes, gives tithes and/or offerings, and consistently participates in the life of the church community.
What is an inactive member? An inactive member does not attend the worship service, does not give tithes and/or offerings, comes to none of the church activities, and does not participate in the life of the church community. As in the sample letter below, an inactive member could have been a member at one time but has left to go to another church or maybe dropped out of church completely.
The Inactive Membership sample letter below states: 'Your home church cherishes you as a member of this fellowship. We have sought to mediate the privileges and blessings which we have in association together in the [Church Name]. The hallowed fellowship, the helpfulness, the watch care and counsel are very sacred and precious.
However, according to our records, you have been absent from religious services for at least six successive months, and have not responded to the encouragement to be active when possible. Therefore, the Church Board has placed your name on the roll of inactive membership on [date]
This action does not remove you from our prayers and concern. Any time you call we will seek to minister to you faithfully as the church has done in the past. Inactive members are not eligible to vote in church meetings or to hold church office, but we encourage you not to lose touch with the fellowship.
We believe things will change for you and you will be interested in becoming active in your church again. When that happens, you may request to be returned to the active roll, and upon reaffirmation of the vows of membership and renewed participation in the worship activities of this local church, this may be done. The Church Board will respond to such a request within 60 days.
May you feel God's grace and love and that of the love of your church family too.'
