It’s a banner week for White House petitions which deserve support. This one, which encourages the White House to classify the Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group, has the backing of Anonymous, which is actively trying to stop the church from picketing the funerals of Sandy Hook shooting victims. It’s already topped the 25,000 signature mark requiring the White House to formally respond.

Just an update to our post on the potential Westboro Baptist Church site we noted last night — it appears to have been taken down. Whether that was by Tumblr staff or by the authors themselves remains to be seen. (EDIT: So was the page for Megan Phelps-Roeper. Which suggests Tumblr did it.)

How does the Westboro Baptist Church stay tax-exempt?

  • what Despite their status as being particularly offensive and their strong advocacy of various political issues, the Westboro Baptist Church has managed to stay tax-exempt, despite their 501(c)(3)/nonprofit status preventing certain kinds of advocacy.
  • why They know the law really well – note that the church never advocates specifically against legislation, but against groups of people it doesn’t like. So while they may not fight Prop 8’s repeal, the Phelps family advocates against homosexuality in general. source

(By the way, the lone dissenter? Samuel Alito.)
