- Westboro Baptist Church
- United States of America
In order to promote both the physical and mental safety and well being of the citizens of this country and the members of the Westboro Baptist Church this petition moves to legally disband the Westboro Baptist Church on the following grounds.
First, after watching the investigations conducted by several media agencies and the conduct of the members, we have determined this church to be a cult that brainwashes it's members into actions that can only be described as hate crimes.
Any non religious organization that encouraged the breaking of laws in this manner would be similarly disbanded. Thus we believe it only fair to treat them in the same manner.
Secondly, they are incestually based. This church has only the members of two families to call it's following, and does not allow members to marry outside of the church. Thus, the church is either already doomed or they will have to break the laws against marrying ones family. If they are already doomed, there is no harm in disbanding them anyhow, and if they elect to force incestual marriages then they would be disbanded on that basis. We see no reason to not nip the issue in the bud.
Thirdly, the activities required by Phelps place the children in danger. By picketing the funerals of anyone whom they can claim was killed in one way or another by 'fag enabling' they are pissing off people who are in an understandably unstable mental state, and who are likely to react violently, regardless of the presence of children.
Fourth, the church has resorted to abuse of foreign dignitaries, harassing Princess Madeleine of Sweden with degrading faxes for her country's stance against hate speeches.
We, the undersigned of various regions of the world, are outraged by WBC's behaviour and actions and wish to have them disbanded on account of such reckless idiocy.
