Westboro Baptists claim to discover Internet’s purpose, much to the amusement of ‘Anonymous’

Members of Pastor Fred Phelps’ Westboro Baptist Church claim to have discovered the underlying purpose of the Internet: using it “to tell this nation & this world that your destruction draws nigh.”

While it was unclear what they thought of other priceless online frivolities, such as lolcats or Something Awful, but there’s one online entity in particular has tweaked the “God Hates Fags” people, and they made their feelings clear in a media advisory posted to their website.

“GOD HATES FAGS & LOUSY ‘HACKERS!’” they declared, apparently responding to a missive from protest group “Anonymous,” which was well known for becoming a persistent antagonist to another group of religious fanatics: the Church of Scientology.

“The only reason the Internet exists is for Westboro Baptist Church to tell this nation & this world that your destruction draws nigh.”

Phelps’s bizarre press release was issued in response to a letter published to AnonNews.org, an unofficial, uncensored channel for members to post details relevant to their forthcoming actions.

“Cease & desist your protest campaign in the year 2011, return to your homes in Kansas, & close your public Web sites,” the first “Anonymous” letter demanded. ”Should you ignore this warning, you will meet with the vicious retaliatory arm of ANONYMOUS: We will target your public Websites, and the propaganda & detestable doctrine that you promote will be eradicated; the damage incurred will be irreversible, and neither your institution nor your congregation will ever be able to fully recover.”

In their response, the arch-conservative church acknowledged that “Anonymous” had seen some success in attacking governments and financial institutions, but that they were no match for “servants of the Living God.”

“Bad miscalculation, girls!” they jeered.

This was all a bit much for the cyber-dissidents, who fired off another open letter to their “WBC Phriends.”

“You thought you could play with Anonymous,” they wrote. “You observed our rising notoriety and thought you would exploit our paradigm for your own gain. And then, you thought you could lure some idiots into a honeypot for more IPs to sue.

“This is not so foreign to us; as you may have heard, we trade in Lulz. You just do not have enough to offer right now.

“While Anonymous thanks you for your interest, and would certainly like to take a break and have some fun with you guys, we have more pressing matters to deal with at the moment.”

The group further warned other members to not engage in attacks on the Westboro website, for fear that it may be a trap. They added that if Phelps and crew would just stick around, “we’ll come back to play another day.”

The protest group recently stunned global observers by successfully taking MasterCard Worldwide off the Internet for a day, in response to their decision to cut off all business ties with secrets website WikiLeaks. They also succeeded in toppling the web operations of Sarah Palin, Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT), the government of Egypt, the government of Tunisia and others.

Members of “Anonymous” also played roles in smuggling US diplomatic cables into middle eastern nations even as leaders clamped down on the Internet to prevent a wave of protests from overturning their regimes.

The Westborough Baptist Church has been a persistent presence among US hate groups, making a point to picket the funerals of soldiers who’ve died in the terror wars, among other targets of their Bible-based rage.

    Aaaah, Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Cooks. God and Jesus must be so proud of him. He’s the pride and joy of Christianity. And shows the world how with Christians like that, you don’t need Muslims to malign and demonize.

    “…and neither your institution nor your congregation will ever be able to fully recover.”

    Okay, who’s gonna be the one to tell Anonymous that Fred Phelps’ congregation consists of his wife (if she is still with him), his mother in law, his Aunt Pearl and the family dog (who only attends the rallies because he’s on a leash).

    The WBC is sanctioned by the teabaggers to do the work they really want done. Who doesnt know that CPAC endorses WBC and their anti gay message. Has anyone ever heard of Southern Baptist leaders condemning WBC or any leaders of the teabaggers condemning them? They don’t condemn them because WBC says in harsh terms what the teabaggers really feel. Don’t kid yourselves into thinking that anyone on the right cares anything about equal rights for women, gays, or any minorities. There is a systemic attack on working class America by the right and WBC is just as much a part of it as crazy eyes or polar barbie. Every republican wants to destabilize unions then take away social security. What will happen to all that money that people have paid into for forty years? It will be turned over to Wall Street to fund more attacks on the working class. Say good bye middle class. If you don’t have your approved teabagger voter registration card, your voting rights are next.

    Watch the movie, “The Most Hated Family In America.” There is a part where a driver throws a bottle from a car and hits one of their demon seeds in the head. It almost made that “noise” when the dude in the airplane from, “The Gods Must Be Crazy”, tossed the Coke bottle out the window.

    What the fuck is with this paragraph?

    “While it was unclear what they thought of other priceless online frivolities, such as lolcats or Something Awful, but there’s one online entity in particular has tweaked the “God Hates Fags” people, and they made their feelings clear in a media advisory posted to their website.”

    Could there be any more grammatical errors in that? Remove the word “but” and add the words “is” and “which”. Also, why are you using contractions? This is not some IM conversation. It is journalism, or so I thought.

    Correction example (using CAPS to illustrate the missing words): “…such as lolcats or Something Awful, there IS one online entity in particular WHICH has tweaked the “God Hates Fags” people…”

    While we are at it, why just say “lolcats”? Why not provide the entire URL?’

    I did a bit of investigation on the author Stephen C. Webster. I noticed there are only ten articles on Raw Story by him, and they date back only 6 days. Perhaps this means he is a new writer, and one who is churning out the stories like a machine. But it looks like that’s causing some serious grammatical blunders. It’s great to have constant new content on Raw Story but at least go over your work before you post it. I would actually prefer less stories that were written up correctly, than a load of stories that look as if they were written by a high schooler.

    Let Westboro Baptist experience as they have indicated the world will (destruction per their own words) as they did not get their interpretation from Spirit but from the letter of the book. Many predictions occurred in order to reach loved ones lost behind a veil of interpretation called religion that they did not get from the Spirit. Yes, cease and desist your intention that is not mutual with the Spirit which is love nor mutual with your fellow Americans.

    65% of “Anonymous” is a successful advertising campaign, in a sense, of those that will profit most from an internet that’s 100% locked down in terms of content and access. Everyone will willingly give up their online freedom in order to avoid the “horrors” of “hackers” and if there is any real “Anonymous” that actually cared about “propaganda and detestable though” they will kick themselves in the asses pretty soon for handing the net over to the corporate providers in full in order to tick off some pissant low-tech idiots.

    WBC essentially says that their invisible friend hates everybody but WBC.
    Therefore everyone who disagrees with WBC is damned to eternal hellfire.
    Therefore all non-WBC’rs have nothing to lose, in this world nor the next.
    Therefore we all might as well rape, pillage, loot, destroy, rampage, kill.
    Therefore we all might as well descend upon WBC and slaughter them.
    Everything is the will of their invisible friend, especially their destruction.
    Therefore, their invisible friend hates WBC also. Have a nice day. ;)

    Do you know who is just as dangerous as the warped minded evangelical right wing conservatives? Republicans, now the dumbest state in the Union, Texas, just got daddy’s permission to carry firearms on campuses, does this mean kindergarten campuses too. Kids and guns are like kids and cars, get prepared to overloaded cemeteries. There is another prime location that another Republican caused “Overloading” and that was the prisons, we can blame that nugget of expertise leadership on Ronald Reagan! HINKLEY!! were you not told to “squeeze” the trigger? Oh, no wonder, he got his schooling at Texas Tech. Republicans are like inbreads, they do not have control of their facualties to lead a nation, much less a child’s train set of which they learned “hostile takerovers.”

    To watch this film for free– http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/ search for The Most hated Family In America or http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/the-most-hated-family-in-america/
    From the site: “The Most Hated Family in America is a TV documentary written and presented by the BBC’s Louis Theroux about the family at the heart of the Westboro Baptist Church. At the heart of the documentary is the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), headed by Fred Phelps and based in Topeka, Kansas. It runs the website GodHatesFags.com, and GodHatesAmerica.com, and other websites expressing condemnation of LGBT, Roman Catholics, Muslims, Jews, Sweden, Ireland, Canada, The Netherlands, and other groups.

    The organization is monitored by the Anti-Defamation League, and classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The group has achieved national notice because of its picketing of funeral processions of U.S. soldiers killed in action in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    The church bases its work around the belief expressed by its best known slogan and the address of its primary website, “God hates fags”, and expresses the opinion, based on its Biblical interpretation, that nearly every tragedy in the world is God’s punishment for homosexuality – specifically society’s increasing tolerance and acceptance of gay, lesbian, and bisexual people. It maintains that God hates homosexuals above all other kinds of “sinners” and that homosexuality should be a capital crime. Louis Theroux stated that the Phelpses are the most extreme people he has ever met. “

    God’s folly! The arrogant delusional stance of religions is magnified in this one little exchange. A demented sect of abusive, incestuous, in-bred “followers” stands against a force that brought down nations and big Business. What a laugh. This parodies the feeble corrupt Pope who stands up and tries to immunize the Church against pedophilia charges. Religions willl die of their own hubris. Just a matter of time.

    What, the Westboro “Baptist” Church kooks are still around? I thought they had Raptured back in 2000 during the last “world is gonna end” episode. Or maybe on May 21st, this year, they’ll Rapture, because some “world is gonna end on this date” group has decided this is the new “deadline.” Of course, there’s still 2012 when the Mayan calendar ends, which has also been seized upon by the Death Panel end-of-the-worlders. And then after all these dates pass and 2013 arrives, these “world is gonna end” guys will proclaim that they misinterpreted the Bible and the new End of the World date (for certain) is….(fill in the blank).

Religion may be what the Powers That Be use to get the masses to fight their wars for wealth and resources but it’s really no reason to insult those who believe that there just might be something out there greater than ourselves.

    Really? You are ill informed, too? West Virginia doesn’t allow first cousins to marry and never has.

    Ask them, whose feet did YOU wash. (our own.) Shame them!

    Ask them, what have you done for the better. (nothing.) Shame them!

    Ask them, when or where will you look in a mirror and say to yourself what you say to others. (not gonna happen because we’re elect and squeaky clean.) Shame them!

    The eschatalogical tenor is unmistakeable but it is not the End of This World they anticipate, it is the End of Their World. The same unmistakeable cries are found in the Dead Sea Scrolls where the ruthless heel of Rome and the betrayal of strict Jewish orthodoxy by Herodian collaboration is depicted. This is a common response when a worldview (Weltanschauung) is challenged.
    The pretentious German rendition overcooks the concept somewhat and tends toward cultural incommensurability or solipsism. People living in “different world” is a metaphor, not to be taken literally. But the phenomenon is a bellwether for radical change, and an indication that trouble is brewing “at mill”.

    Keep in mind that the destruction cycle in the ancient world was something like 106 years: 208BC, 102BC, AD5, AD111. If this mythical Jesus didn’t return in 111, he didn’t return. Period. All this hootin’ and hollerin’ 2000 years later is for naught and a decided waste of time.

    I think “God” hates Freds in general. Why else would he let mothers saddle their children with such a moniker?

    I like your use of so many 50 cent words. It makes you sound ejumacated.

    It gets them in the news, including Raw Story, and keeps the donations coming in. You do understand that modern American society is about money and nothing else?

    You’re living in the Iron Age, Dudley.

    Indeed. What you are looking at is the paranoid fringe of the conspiracy community, the ones that end up on Project Camelot and give serious conspiracy researchers a bad name. Whether they are government tools or not is hard to tell. They may simply be too far gone to tell reality from delusion.

    Except evolution, of course. And global warming. Jeezus wouldn’t let THAT happen!

    Yes, rule number one for serious writing is: No Contractions!

    There is nothing ungrammatical about “fuck.” You could argue that it’s from a foreign language (Anglo-Saxon), but that’s never really been demonstrated to anyone’s satisfaction.

  • Hassan i Sabbah

    “Anyone”? I think you have these creatures confused with human beings.

  • Hassan i Sabbah

    If you are going to swear, at least do it with genuine Anglo-Saxon words. None of this sissy Hollywood swearing.

    It’s not? I must have clicked the wrong link.

    BULL PUCKY!

    The purpose of the Internet is so losers like me can “date” a different woman any time he has a few spare moments.

    Its a pun. You have heard young people describing things as gay, meaning lame, weak, uninteresting. In this case I cleverly ascribe the double meaning to Fred Phelps. I guess we must have a lot of HuffPoo refugees coming here – I kinda expected more intelligence from the crowd at Raw.

    actually, shaming them just draws them closer togerther as a cult – Louis Theroux did a documentary about them, check it out:

    I totally agree. Using their kids as chattel is really bad. And, suing is their main objective. If they come to your town, watch out. They are lawyers and they will get you.

    WBC is only interested in luring people into actions against them that can be exploited for financial gain through lawsuits. Ignore theses people and you cut their purse-strings.
    This is one cancer that can literally be starved into non-existance.

    I like anonymous, I really do, but why are they stooping down to these baptist freaks?
    How is a hacking group going to take down a family which pretends to be a church?
    They live near each other, they can just walk to each others houses, they don’t ‘need’ the internet to function.

    Since when was dysfunction – function?

    I think it happens in “Conjunction Junction,” but it’s only a guess.

    Could the WBC go down in flames? Meet their infamous maker? I foresee an eternity for them, of warm, warm places. May their toasting forks be always too short, stale marshmallows their only provender, and their flameproof gloves all fingerless!

    What God hates (if God hates at all) is people who never met God and don’t know anything about God presuming to speak for God.

    Matthew 15:7 “Hypocrites, well did Esaiah prophesy of you, saying, ‘These people draw nigh to me with their mouth, and honor me with their lips; but their hearts are far from me.”

    Thanks for the laugh, I needed it. And I was thinking it was in some grotesque version of Petticoat Junction where Kate Bradley was a servant of Cthulhu. That ‘water tank’ in the opening…it really wasn’t a water tank…it was an abattoir.

    “God Hates Fags” is wrong, according to the bible God hates Figs, they misspelled.

    He destroyed their vines with hail and their sycamore-figs with sleet.
    Psalm 78:46-48

    hahahaha
    people that screw around are going to get screwed
    live by the sword, die by the sword kinda thing

    fuck christian faith
    ever look at a flow chart of the history of time with technological increases factored in?
    Egypt, electrical theory and evidence of wires and signal transfer, engineering feats beyond modern capacity
    Greeks, up and up from there, alchemy
    Romans came, more up and up, iron that doesn’t rust, perfect social forum rules (until it was overrun and caused the empire to fall)
    christianity… remember the dark ages much? converted all forum and public access into staring at 1 guy with 1 book
    wasn’t until the renaissance in the 1700s we bounced out of it
