Now this. This. I can get on board with.

We, by petition, call upon the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Government to enforce existing 501(c)3 tax-exempt law for religious organizations by revoking Westboro Baptist Church's tax-exempt status for violation of the ban on political activity by churches. We consider Westboro Baptist Church to be a danger to the well-being of society. Their hate speech and political activity advocate psychological (if not physical) violence upon those different than themselves and bring NOTHING of positive value to life or society. WBC continually advocates against certain political parties, philosophies, and views in a public setting and therefore constitutes a violation of the law. Again, we call upon the Federal Government to REVOKE WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH'S TAX-EXEMPT STATUS IMMEDIATELY!

Go sign. (http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/revokewbcstatus/)

Done. Gladly so... these fuckers have ruined way too many funerals for fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen.

I hope I never come face to face with any of these people... I'd only end up in jail.

I usually ignore Internet Petitions, as they do very little good - but I'm in for this one.

I'm like Phee, I usually ignore internet petitions because they're nothing I truly care about. These asshats? They gotta go!

While I agree, and yes, signed the petition, I am worried about where this could go. This could set a bad precedent. If it goes through, what's to stop the IRS from pulling the tax exempt status on any non-profit that has a protest or rally, etc? If they start with one, they won't stop there...we are talking about the federal government after all.:sigh:
