The White House won’t classify the Westboro Baptist Church as a ‘hate group’

On Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Houston Rockets v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game FiveDespite online petitions filed on its online site, the White House won’t classify the Westboro Baptist Church as a “hate group” according to a report by ABC News on July 6.

It’s not that the White House doesn’t see the insensitive activities of the WBC and its 50 members, in fact, they also find the practices of protesting at funerals of men and women who have died in service to the country very distasteful but “as a matter of practice, the federal government doesn’t maintain a list of hate groups.”

The unaffiliated Baptist church is very anti-gay and targets any person or people who they feel have an association with homosexuality. The group perhaps hit its lowest when members attempted to picket the funerals of Newtown, Conn., Sandy Hook elementary school shooting victims.

Their latest attempt of a protest is to picket the funerals of the 19 Arizona firefighters who died attempting to contain a wildfire.

More than 280,000 people have signed the petition on the White House’s website. Although the Obama administration hasn’t mandated the WBC as a “hate group”, measures have been taken to limit the group’s actions. Back in August, Obama signed a bill that prevents protesters from coming within 300 feet of military funerals and prohibits protests two hours before or after a service.

The group also attempted to protest the funerals of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. Local citizens lined up in front of the services to make sure it didn’t happen.

About - Tarringo T. Vaughan always believed he had a love affair with literature. One of the first pictures he saw of himself was of him at maybe the age of three or four year’s old sitting with a book in his hand. But for Tarringo, growing up in the depths of the inner city both in Boston, MA and Springfield, MA made him believe that expression through the literary voice was un-cool and unattainable. As a very quiet and shy child he learned it became very valuable in his self expression. Born in 1976, Tarringo was the first child, grandchild and nephew in a family that had grown accustomed to struggle. His mother was a teenager who quickly lost the support of my father who today he knows very little of. These aspects of his life triggered the inspiration of his pen.
