1. And what exactly would that do? Meaning, what are the consequences of such a declaration?

As far as I know, there are none. Maybe public perception ...... but no legal ramifications.

2. Perhaps revoke its obscene tax-exempt status?

4. I think that would be the better argument

The courts have already ruled in their favor. They love to manipulate the court for their own pleasure. Take away the tax exempt status and that would hurt them financially.

Edit: Not that I'm opposed to the petition. I'll sign it, I just don't think it will do much.

6. I can't, in good conscience, sign this.

They have the right to be assholes in public.

That being said, I would be totally down for squeezing my ass into a rubber suit and be led around like the gimp from pulp fiction, counter-protesting the shit out of them.

7. I checked out their names/addresses that Anonymous posted. Looks like lots of

in-breeding going on, sort of like an "I'm My Own Grandpa" type of deal. Perhaps they'll in-breed themselves into oblivion? A gal can dream, can't she?
