A religious fringe group from Topeka, Kansas is coming to Clarence Center and Buffalo, NY on Sunday to picket memorial services for victims of Continental Connection Flight 3407.
Westboro Baptist Church has picketed at funerals of American Soldiers killed in Iraq and Afganistan, as well as President Obama's grandmother's funeral, President Clinton's mother's funeral, Frank Sinatra's funeral, and hate-crime muder victim: Matthew Sheppard, among hundreds of others.
The religious group has long been associated with anti-gay views and members contend that the deaths it pickets are God's punishment for what it considers the nations permissive attitude toward homosexuals.
article was found from the Buffalo News if you want to look up the source.
What are your feelings?
WOW is all I can say. I don't know where I've been but I didn't even know this group existed! I went to Google them and I was speechless from the onset. Their website address godhatesfags.com, stunned me right off the bat! I'm shocked. To have peaceful first amendment right protests, is absolutely our constitutional right. HOWEVER, to picket ANY funeral is beyond appalling, it's cold, heartless, disrespectful and no words can explain it! What a shame! What is with these churches, in the name of God and the Bible, to preach hate from the pulpit? Rev. Wright's church, now this. I'm purley shocked! I find it extremely disturbing and offensive! To picket their sermons would give them great pride, how about picketing one of THEIR members funeral?!!!!!!!! Heartless, hate mongers for sure! NOT Christian!!
