    The Westboro Baptist Church, or WBC, is the group known for picketting events such as comic-con and E3 and founders of such websites such as They like spoutting how that anyone who disagrees with them is going to hell, and they preach that only members of their particular church, located in topeka, kansas, are actually going to heaven. While they have followed the path of peaceful protest to my understanding and have done nothing legally wrong, they have on many an occasion done things that are ethically wrong. My biggest concern is that they seem to like to set up protests outside of funerals, holding anti-gay protests outside of funerals of known homosexuals (also like crashing gay weddings), having anti-war protests outside of funerals of dead soldiers, ect. They like hitting conventions saying that we are going to hell because we do something other than worship god and read the bible 24/7, claiming games and comics are idle worship, which, granted, has its legit point, but its technically not idle worhsip because i have seen no one pray to a statue of mario..... least not in a long time.
    This, in my opinion, is a blatant abuse of their right to protest. They are proving to be a nuisance, and while they are allowed to have their opinion, their tactics are proven to be rude. While it techincally is against Anon to protest people whom are just sharing their opinion, its being proven that the most effective way of battling them is to protest their protests, showing up where they plan to meet and setting up just on the other side of the street.

    I would appreciate any Anons that would like start showing up in force to show our distaste for this group, though i understand if this is not something you can get behind. This is simply something that a few Anons i know have spoken about wanting to do

    Anyone in the Topeka area whom is wanting to get a raid organized, this is their location

    Anyone abroad whom may be interested in raiding one of their protests, this is their picket schedule, they do go all over.

    Talk to your local cells about whether this is something you want to pursue, for god sakes, DONT GO ALONE!, and remember, these are religious fanatics who believe they are doing the lords work, they believe what they are doing is right as much as the scilons do, and as we have watched in the past, sometimes their passions get the better of them and people get hurt, so be careful please.

    To OP - Just because you dont like their message, it does not mean that they should be prevented from saying it. Free Speech works both ways. If you dont like the message - sure, protest.

    but isnt there still a risk of being namefagged if you choose to do this? i mean, the church protests anyone who publically speaks out against them. They protest outside of shows where bands who spoke out against them are playing. i personally dont want this nuts protesting outside my house just cause i protested them.

    i think GF masks may be prudent.

    You can type "GEEZUS" and you can type "FUCK," but typing GEEZUS FUCK is Fucking Blasphemy."

    I WISH these assholes would protest outside my house. That way I could tell them to suck my dick from the comfort of sitting at home and looking out the window.

    This heah....

    Look, the WBC are a bunch of vile pieces of dogshit. Thing is, the entire country knows this. Protest them if you want, but don't expect that you're "educating the Public". The Public's already educated about these doofi.

    One of the purposes of protesting Scientology is to get the word out about how truly abusive that organization is, something that, even after the New Yorker, Nightline and other media pieces and 3 years of monthly protests, still isn't widely known. That's my take, anyways. Protest these idiots all you want, but The Dude is correct: They want the attention, for whatever reason. Scientology would rather avoid that kind of scrutiny, leaving them free to once again start in on sucking in troubled or just curious souls with little light shone on them.

    TL;DR: Stay on target.

    Do you pay attention to current events at all? Google US Supreme Court and WBC. It's disgusting what they do, but the Supremes ruled that it's within their rights.

    OMG! WHY NOT??!!?! You need to chill out, son.

    Dox, please. WBC are bigoted, religious fanatics, but they know the laws (several of them are lawyers) - and follow them AFAIK. I have not heard of anyone ever getting physically injured or threatened by a WBC member.

    Entire towns are standing up to them, as well as several other groups. As others have said NYPA.

    Time is better spent going after the criminal cult of scientology who is breaking up families, getting away with tax evasion, involved in human trafficking, utilizing child labor, fraudulently playing doctor, and who have actually physically assaulted others, etc. etc.

    I just dont understand how people cant see they are the biggest IRL trolls EVA! Just ignore them ....they WANT people to react, add them on facebook,look at their website, subscribe o their twitter, counter-protest - this is what they WANT! The people that do just feed right out of their hands.

    DO NOT FEED TROLLS (Online or Offline!!)

    Gr I get so annoyed idiots just cant see they get off on the attention. Without attention they will die and be forgtton about.

    The more attention they get the more they want. For them there is no "bad exposure", and the more negative the more they are fulfilling the prophesies. (In the Bible it says people will hate you for disseminating the message)Honestly, leave them to die a slow death....the motorcycle guys do a great job drowning them out...anything else will only encourage them!!

  21. face it if we protest against them they will gain more publicity. However we can get some legal action involved like making them recognised as a hate group not a church. If we could do that then the rest will take care of itself.
  22. This. This is your chance to arrange NORPs to troll them when they come out. Just say you come from a new Testament Christian Group, that's enought to piss them off. They don't really Troll Anons, and they don't have the (cough Cough) resources that CoS does so it's harder for them to find individual people. So for this guy:

    Tracking down a band that spoke out against you is one thing. Finding where they live is totally different.

    OP: LURK MOAR. Lurk away. Lurk and lurk and lurk some moar and give it to all your friends and keep on lurkin'. Lurk till it runs out your ears and ass. Lurk until you can't lurk anymore.... Then lurk moar.

    My point is: There is over 9,000 threads like this one. All with the same conclusion - Ignore the trolls. They feed on attention. Ignoring them will make them wither and Darwin out.

    The only time I'll protest the WBC will be at good ol' Fred's funeral. The look on their faces will be worth buying a ticket to the states.

    Why? Protesting them might have been funny 4 years ago. Now they just do it cause they know faggots like OP and those who agree with him, will go out and rage and protest them, which is exactly what they want. So by all means, do exactly what they want you to do.

    if you want to give them what they want, then yes protest them
    you are free to do whatever you want of course, but keep in mind without media attention the WBC would wither away
  34. Sepulture Member

    Yeah! Let's exercise our right to protest against those who are exercising their right to protest! Let's see if we can get someone to come in and protest our protests of their protests, and then protesters to protest the ones protesting us who are protesting the protesters. We can start a nice chain of epic protesting awesomesauce.
