Should this church be labeled as a ‘hate group’?
Hundreds of thousands of people say the U.S. Government should declare that the Westboro Baptist Church is a hate group. That’s according to a story from The Huffington Post.
More than 250,000 people signed the online petition on the White House website.
The petition says the church, which is known for picketing military funerals, has targeted homosexuals, the military,and other religions.
They even targeted the funerals of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
This is the most supported single petition ever on the White House site.
