Newtown school shooting: Thoughts and tributes
Westboro Baptist Church Coming to Newtown CT
I live in Newtown CT and have since I was 13, and it is simply horrible what has happened here. However, to make matters worse there are reports from their twitter feeds, and several other websites are reporting that the Westboro Baptist Church is coming to Newtown CT to picket. This is horrible and needs to be stopped or at the very least we need to seriously restrict where they can go and what they can do. I can't believe this organization is a "church" it should be classified as a hate group. I cannot understand how they are able to remain a tax-exempt organization.
Can't use the photo of the publicly viewable twitter feed so this article will have to do without the photo.
