There's nothing that Westboro Baptist fundies like better than seeing their names in lights. Eariler, the fake church put out a fake statement claiming that the hacker consortium "Anonymous" had threatened to take down their websites.
Anonymous responded by saying the letter was a fake created by the religious nutjobs to draw attention to their cause and that they had no plans to attack the group's web infrastructure. The fundies stuck to their guns, denied that the letter was a fake, and told the hackers to "bring it."
As Shirley Phelps-Roper, the church's spokeswoman, debated a member of Anonymous on a radio talk show and got quite a surprise on air. The Anonymous member told everyone that the hate group's website had now been hacked and said the church's consistent lies about the threat had caused retribution. "We had enough. We responded maturely. We said no, we don't want war," the hacker said.
The hackers posted a note on the group's website that said, "Despite having the capability to hack your sites previously, we chose not to," and cited the group's "recent antics to gain media attention" as the reason the hackers targeted the hate group. They left a map of the entire internal network of the church on the main page with their note.
