revoke frequent flier plans, and put members of WBC on no fly status

For years Westboro Baptist Church has harassed people and organizations indiscriminately with a message of hatred. They spend $250,000 a year flying to picket the funerals of soldiers, violent deaths, and AIDS victims. They also bring their message of hate to schools, claiming that it is because the government supports gay rights. By doing this they rack up frequent flier miles which reduces their travel costs and gets them perks. If they are unable to fly or get reduced fare it will limit their ability to propagate hatred indiscriminately. Please stand up against this group who has been quoted as saying their mission is to "spread God's Hate - Shirley Phelps-Roper" and as airlines refuse them service because of them being a hate group.

      WBC deserves this and then some. Its about time they learned that you mess with the innocent people of our country IN our country, you are not going to have the same God-given rights the rest of us have.

      Hopefully by keeping them from flying all over the country it will keep their ignorance inside their ridiculous church.

      The Westboro Baptist Church is a terrorist group - it uses their bbeliefs to spread hatred and discrimination throughout America. They need to be stopped.
