Church Assholes

There is a church in Topeka, Kansas that has been picketing and rallying outside of fallen soldiers funerals. It is the Westboro Baptist Church. They yell and chant that the soldier that had died is gay and that any soldier who dies is a homosexual. What kind of fucked up country are we that we allow this to happen. A father of one of the soldiers sued the church and lost. He ended up paying the church 1600 dollars. This is seriously wrong. Free speech is great..but this is too far. I am a soldier in the Air Force and can not believe this shit. I would like to know what my fellow sharenators think about this..

    There is a group of people now, a motorcycle "gang," that actually spends their time following this Church. They then ride constantly between the members of the Church and the funerals until the funerals are over. Blocking both the sound of the chanting and the sight of the signs and the hate. Go them.

    Here in Buffalo NY, we have a group of motorcycle riders called the Freedom Riders who ride with military funerals. Its great to see Americans protecting American heroes after they've gone.

    I have actually been part of the group of bikers to keep them away from the funeral at the time. It took everything that I had not to just run one or two of them over to be honest. I think what they do is just deplorable and to be honest the church leader who started this and is the ring leader for the thing needs to be taken around the corner and have a grenade shoved up his ass. They do this across the country.

    no... those fall off. meathooks in the lower legs and feet

    If it weren't for these soldiers these church fucks wouldn't have the right to protest

    I have to fully disagree. Of all the things that we as humans do, dying has almost always been one of the most sacred. To me, protesting at a funeral is the equivalent of us barging in on Sunday services with signs that read "God Butt-Fucks Goats!"

    While the right to freedom of speech is important, at the same time it's important to respect others. Those protesters show no respect whatsoever, and I'd like to put each one of them on a patrol over in Iraq themselves.

    It is the very freedom of speech that those dead soldiers are fighting for that allows them to do this. It wouldn't surprise me if the authorities turned a blind eye whilst someone sorted these despicable people out.
    I have been led to believe it is just one twisted family that are doing this.

    They have every right to do so but if I was attending a funeral and this was going on I would introduce their faces to my Louisville Slugger. And if I perish and this is being done at my funeral I hope someone else would do the same. If I happened to be jailed because of this I would serve my time with a smile.

    These people make no sense to me. I don't think god or Jesus hate anyone. But even if homosexuals and troops committed sins, judging another person is just as bad in God's eyes.

    That's awesome. But like it has been stated before this does give curches a bad name. Nowhere does Jesus tell us to protest peoples funerals.

    Do you really think this is what your country's founding fathers had in mind when they made the 1st ammendment? Of course not. This is nothing more than hate speech, hiding behind a religious agenda. It shows incredible disrespect towards your soldiers and incredible ignorance torwards homosexuals.

    the people involved in this are part of a scam against the government. the leaders of such groups, including one that came to my college town to protest a gay kids funeral. they choose places to protest where it would piss off the most people (funerals particularly). when someone assaults these protestors (common) they sue the city for failure to keep the peace during a peaceful protest. these assholes make a living off of this. groups running this scam exist all over the country.

    I agree with Jay that if this group of people weren't from a church they wouldn't have any reason to do this. And a funeral is supposed to be respected, not mocked. At least protest when their still alive and can say something back, instead of basically harassing their family and friends when their mourning his death. What ass holes

    well first i would contact your local recruiter. you can find them on the air force website. idk much about psych or what the available jobs are for that. I am a convoy humvee mechanic. The next step would be to take the asvab and see if you qualify for that job. The recruiter will probably push you to a more in demand job though. Dont let them talk you into something you dont want to do. They're good at that lol. Any other questions?

    unfortunatly in America a country founded on the fact that everyone has their won opinion we cannot go and 'off' someone or something we don't like that will lead to a complete opposite of our governments ideals, however I do agree with you that this group is taking advantage of what opportunities and freedoms have been given out.
    - gemie89 November 24, 2010, 6:15 pm
    i know that we have the right of free speech and peaceably assemble but there is a line between general moronic dribble and hate speech and i think that protesting the funerals of dead soldiers and celebrities, saying that america is doomed while standing on an american flag or having an american flag in their pants is hate speech and grounds for treason.

    While these people are exercising freedom of speech, I'd have more respect for them if they weren't exercising it SELECTIVELY. From what I've read they've attacked nearly every religion, particularly Judaism Because they know other religious groups and the government pose little or no threat in return. Where are the protests outside Scientology activities or funerals of Scientology members? I'm pretty sure they wouldn't fit in with this church's views on god. But they won't do that because they know they'd get sued into the ground, and then we'd have one less crazy religious organization to worry about.

    Either that or cults don't attack cults.
