In an effort to allow Americans to make direct requests of the Obama administration, the White House created the “We the People” website. The site allows citizens to create online petitions, and should one generate 25,000 signatures within 30 days, it automatically gets a response from the White House.
In recent weeks, many of the petitions that have netted such a feat include ones requesting the construction of a “Death Star,” Texas secession in light of President Obama’s reelection, and the deportation of CNN’s Piers Morgan for “attacking the Second Amendment.”
Heaven, some of your fellow Americans are in desperate need of a hobby and/or need their computer privileges revoked.
Still, there are a few petitions on the site that speak directly to the nuisances plaguing the country and my new favorite is the petition targeting the stunt queens of Christianity known as Westboro Baptist Church. Launched on Dec. 14, a petition asking that the controversial church based in Topeka, Kansas be branded as a hate group has secured more than 273,000 signatures.
The petition reads as follows:
This group has been recognized as a hate group by organizations, such as The Southern Poverty Law Center, and has repeatedly displayed the actions typical of hate groups.
Their actions have been directed at many groups, including homosexuals, military, Jewish people and even other Christians. They pose a threat to the welfare and treatment of others and will not improve without some form of imposed regulation.
