Hacker Attacks Westboro Baptist Church Website, Redirects it to Red Cross Donation Page

In the wake of the massive EF5 tornado that killed 24 people in the city of Moore, Oklahoma, the Westboro Baptist Church set up a website bearing the theme, “God Hates Oklahoma”.

The Westboro Baptist Church is a Christian fundamentalist group that has become notorious for picketing the funerals of slain veterans — and other victims of tragedy.

The site, which has since been removed, was set upon by a well-known hacker referring to him/herself as “Jester,” who changed the homepage to display a painting of Jesus Christ giving the middle finger, accompanied by the message, “Westboro Faptist Church — Even Jesus Hates You” — (“faptist combines the word Baptist with ‘fap,’ which is internet slang for ‘masturbate).

Moments after landing on the site, visitors were then redirected to the donation page of the American Red Cross, where they were able to make a contribution to the Oklahoma disaster relief fund.

    That may be, Juanita, but I’m pretty sure he does not hold Fred Phelps and his crew in very high regard.

    Even worse, you had to falsely label WBC as ” fundamentalist”?

    No…I think he died because a Roman nailed him to a piece of wood.
    P.S. To call someone a moron is passing judgment.
    Next time you try and sound intelligent make sure there is a round in the chamber before you pull the trigger.
    P.P.S. If your religion is worth killing for, please start with yourself

    Isn’t calling people morons a judgment made by you about others? Shame. You’re a great example of christianity. Hypocrite.

    Stupid? Really? Because someone doesn’t know the definition of slang that’s only used online? Were you stupid also the day before you learned the word, finding normalcy once you understood its use?

    You mental midget, that’s how people learn. Your intolerance and judgment of the learning process puts you right up there with the WBC on the ignorance scale.

    Jesus said you can’t go to heaven because you called us “morons”.

    Jesus may well have flipped tables and chased people with a whip. It’s within the realm of possibilities.
