Town takes on Westboro for plans to protest in Newtown


They’re back and at a place many of us could never imagine; the Westboro Baptist Church said they plan to protest in Newton, Connecticut, after the tragic elementary school shooting.

One Midwest town is taking on the group and working to classify the organization 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.

Don’t think they should be tax-exempt? Sign the petition here.
