Anonymous Group LulzFinancial Hacks Westboro Baptist Church
LulzFinancial, an off-shoot of "hacktivist" group Anonymous, went after Westboro Baptist Church this week for threatening to picket the funeral of Charlie and Braden Powell, the two boys murdered by their father Josh Powell earlier this week. Hackers shut down the church's two main sites and leaked contact information on all its members, including phone numbers and home addresses. Reuters

The fundamentalist, anti-gay Westoboro Baptist Church has announced its intention to picket funeral services in California and Michigan for former first lady Betty Ford, who died Friday at 93, The Grand Rapids Press reports.

The Topeka, Kansas-based congregation, mostly comprised of family members of the founder Fred Phelps, said on its website that it will protest Ford's funeral because she divorced her first husband, then married the future presdient, Gerald R. Ford.

And as they see it, that makes Ford an adulterer who loved to sit with tawdry reporters and blather about sex.

The group plans to picket Tuesday at services at Sain Margaret Episcopal Church in Palm Desert, Calif., and Thursday at Grace Episcopal Church in East Grand Rapids when her casket travels to the Gerald R. Ford Museum for burial, USA Today reported.
