Thousands take on Westboro for plans to protest in Newtown
By: Sarah Clark for WDAF
They’re back and at a place many of us could never imagine; the Westboro Baptist Church said they plan to protest in Newtown, Connecticut, after the tragic elementary school shooting.
Now outraged citizens across the country are taking on the organization and working to classify them as a hate group.
Thousands have signed petitions that would classify Topeka’s Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group and and strip it of its tax-exempt status.
