Shirley Phelps-Roper: Lack of spanking to blame for ‘Anonymous’ hackers

Shirley Lynn Phelps-Roper, who acts as a spokeswoman for the Westboro Baptist Church, said that groups like ‘Anonymous’ exist because parents no longer spank their children.

The website of the Westboro Baptist Church, which has become infamous for picketing soldier’s funerals and carrying signs declaring that “God hates fags,” was allegedly attacked by members the volunteer group of hacktivists known as ‘Anonymous’ on Monday.

During an interview on The David Pakman Show, Phelps-Roper denied that ‘Anonymous’ had taken down its website.

“Should we be more afraid of lawless, cowardly, hidden rebels than we are afraid of a large, lawless judiciary?” she asked. “I’ve been on that website again and again today. Of course they have not taken it down.”

In response to a letter published to AnonNews.org, an unofficial, uncensored channel for members of ‘Anonymous’ to post details relevant to their forthcoming actions, the Westboro Baptist’s website declared that “GOD HATES FAGS & LOUSY ‘HACKERS!’”

The website of the Westboro Baptist Church was down on Monday, apparently because of a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack.

“They’ve made a terrible mistake,” Phelps-Roper continued. “They have done this mischief against their own interests. They need to understand that they are exactly like the Pharaoh of Egypt when Egypt was the most powerful nation in the world.”

She said that God would punish the “cowardly” members of ‘Anonymous,’ adding that some people know the identity of those participating in the group.

“This generation doesn’t talk about spanking children, in fact, they don’t,” Phelps-Roper explained. “That’s why we have groups like Anonymous running around. Just connect these dots.”

Other members of ‘Anonymous’ have suggested that the campaign launched against the Westboro Baptist Church was a trap and not in line with the free speech philosophy of the group.

“They make all their money from suing people who fight back, so they’re just waiting for IPs to sue,” a press release on AnonNews.org stated. “I have a bad feeling that it’s all a trap, made by them so they can get some money and attention.”

“And it’s not just that DDoSes pose a safety risk,” the statement continued. “A DDoS is useless, it’s just a symbolic act. It doesn’t do any damage, and it gives them undeserved media attention.”

“When Anonymous says we support free speech, we mean it,” another press release said. “We count Beatrice Hall among our Anonymous forebears: ‘I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.’”

“Just because it was posted on AnonNews doesn’t mean every single Anon is in agreement, in fact in this case it doesn’t even mean a single Anon is in agreement.”

    Phelps and the whole crowd are absolutely 100% out of their minds crazy. But they are definitely getting money from SOMEONE, and THOSE people should be ashamed of themselves for enabling this lunacy and hatred.

    And don’t you just love how it’s THESE idiots who are saying what God hates? I think that the bible says that those who try to put words into the mouth of God will go to hell. Maybe someone should point this out to Phelps and the whelps. Or not, and we can just let them go to hell either way.

    I would prefer that NO ONE ever gave these assholes the time of day, let alone a minute of air time. Then they can just go back to the hole in the wall they deserve to be stuck in. Oh, and I LOVE the way that people are starting to get in the way of their protests everywhere they show up. OK wins my “best response” award, though, with the flattened tires and complete lack of cooperation from the community. They need to be treated to such kindness everywhere they go.

    May this family of mental midgets disappear in a fiery pit somewhere.

    Oh, and one more thing: violence administered to children comes back to haunt you win ways that you can’t even imagine. The lessons you THINK you’re teaching kids by beating and abusing them are NOT the lessons that they learn. You THINK you’re teaching them about consequences and what they are learning instead is that the bigger guy gets to abuse and beat you and get away with it. It doesn’t instill respect, it creates resentment, and in extreme cases can lead to serious psychological damage. Personalities like Jeffrey Dahmer can result. And the more people live like these WBC loons, the more likely it is that one of their own will be a serial killer.

    There is NEVER an excuse to hit a child, sorry. If you wouldn’t allow it in your own life being done to you, then you have no reason to allow it in your kid’s life.

    BTW, if these folks are the shining example of what you get when you DO abuse and beat your kids, then I think we know why NOT to do it.

    Hmmm, would that be anything like ‘spank the monkey’? So, Westboro Baptist Church needs a “spokeswoman?”
    Didn’t the Apostle Paul maintain that “let the spokeswomen remain SILENT in church?” Seems like the Apostle Paul said some sexist diatribe like that there. Maybe in one of those Corinthians chapters…

    This is another draconian idea that stems from the 19th century. In actuality, the facts are conclusive: the more abused a child is the more likely they are to develop anti-social tendencies and anti-social personalities. But that information comes to us from scientific research another category of information that these ignorant Bible thumpers reject. In fact it is the Bible that tells them this crap in the first place. “Spare the rod; spoil the child” of some such crap.

    In reality there are no “spoiled” children in the popular sense, there are children who are loved and those who are not loved. Those who are not loved by parents at a lower economic level are more likely to be abused, while those who are not loved at a higher economic level are more likely to be “spoiled” that is parents who use things as a replacement for the love that they cannot give.

    In both cases the child feels guilt thinking that the lack of love stems from their own behavior. Freud speculated that guilt always exists before the crime or immoral action. The feelings of guilt were seen by Freud as the source for the crime. For Freud believed that the only way to assuage these feeling of guilt that had no clear conscious source was for the person to commit a crime that they could feel guilty for. D,W, Winnicott who worked exclusively with children in England during and after WWII concurred and saw especially the crime of theft as the delinquent’s attempt to satisfy the yearning for the love that was withheld during childhood.

    I lived in Topeka for 30 years. When I was much younger, the Phelps cult’s children would wander the streets of Topeka trying to sell candy bars. If they didn’t meet their quota, they were yelled at, and probably beaten. They have a swimming pool in their compound that is not taxed because they claim it is their baptismal font. They live in a Waco style compound and have killed property values around them. The children are forced to stand out in the rain and snow, every day of their lives and carry these horrific signs with images of anal sex, and the worst slogans you can ever imagine. It is very graphic, and this poor community has had to deal with these crazy people for 30 years. As the children become teenagers, they get flown all over the world to picket where they are subjected to the most dangerous, mob situations. GET THIS STRAIGHT….this family will never quit picketing, and the Constitution protects them even if they wipe their asses with it! The children ARE abused and their is nothing that can fix this. Two children have defected and can back up all these stories. Anyone who lives or lived in Topeka has seen a whole lot of crazy. I finally decided to relocate and it was the best decision I ever made. Poor Topeka. The Phelpses are slowly killing this little community. It is commonly held view that you leave Topeka once you graduate high school.

    FLASH: Study finds that a citywide epidemic of Borderline Personality Disorder in Topeka, Kansas has resulted in “Westboro Baptist Syndrome”.

    In a related study of “Religion as Acting-Out,” psychologists found that a number of cases of brief reactive psychosis resulting from decompensation and weakened ego boundaries associated with church attendance, is the most probable explanation for an episode of mass hysteria, hallucinations, snake handling and glossolalia reported outside the local Tea Party Headquarters in downtown Topeka Wednesday night.

    Psychologists say the triggering event for the mass display of hysteria was the weekly church ritual involving mutual prostrate massage. Some members became so ecstatic as a result of the ritual that their faces turned fuchsia as they began to sing in tongues. A covered dish dinner followed.

    People used to think it was necessary to “spank” adult members of the community, college students, military trainees, and prisoners. In some countries they still do. In our country, it is considered assault and battery (sexual battery at that) if a person over the age of 18 is “spanked”, but only if over the age of 18.

    Just a handful of those helping to raise awareness of why child “spanking” isn’t a good idea:

    American Academy of Pediatrics,
    American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry,
    American Psychological Association,
    Center For Effective Discipline,
    Churches’ Network For Non-Violence,
    United Methodist Church
    Nobel Peace Prize recipient Archbishop Desmond Tutu,
    Parenting In Jesus’ Footsteps,
    Global Initiative To End All Corporal Punishment of Children,
    United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child.

    In 31 nations, child corporal punishment is prohibited by law (with more in process). In fact, the US was the only UN member that did not ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The US also has the highest incarceration rate in the world.

    The US states with the highest crime rates, poorest academic performance, highest obesity rates and health problems, and largest welfare caseloads are also the ones with the highest rates of child corporal punishment.

    Of all the things prison inmates lacked in their upbringing, “spanking” certainly wasn’t one of them.

    There is simply no evidence to suggest that child bottom-battering instills virtue.

    Speaking of Hate Groups, the Westboro Baptist Church should be at the top of the list.
    For starters they should lose their tax exempt status. Hate groups aren’t religious organizations.

    I’ve found that too much spanking or rather spanking period tends to cause anti-authoritarian behavior.:)

    Why don’t we spank the members of the Westboro Baptist Church until “Anonymous” gives up its web activities?

    Behold, a ‘church’ so low that the KKK condemn it : http://www.kukluxklan.bz/release.html , whatever happened to ‘Judge not, lest Ye be Judged’, or ‘let those who are Without Sin cast the first Stone’.

    This is no church, this is merely a hate group, as misguided and bereft of morality as most Fundamentalist religious groups are, trying to cloak their message of hate under the guise of radical Christian belief.

    This will likely rumble on, fed by yet more outpourings designed to further provoke Anonymous members. and of course raise yet more attention for them.

    I got spanked by Jesus once in a dream and it hurt. Unfortunately this was the height of my Christian life. It went down hill from there man. Which just goes to show it’s love not anger that sets us right.
