Online Petition: Classify Westboro Baptist Church as a Hate Group

(WPIX.com)-

More than a quarter million people want a Kansas-based church, known for picketing soldiers’ funerals, to be labeled a “hate group.”

As of Wednesday night, more than 250,000 people signed an online petition on the White House’s website.

It asks the Obama administration to recognize the Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group.

The petition says the church has targeted homosexuals, the military and others.

The church is primarily made up of members of one family.
