More than a quarter million people want a Kansas-based church, known for picketing soldiers’ funerals, to be labeled a “hate group.”
As of last night, more than 250,000 people signed an online petition on the White House’s website .
It asks the Obama administration to recognize the Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group.
The petition says the church has targeted homosexuals, the military and others.
The church is primarily made up of members of one family.
