Residents of Missouri Community Block Protesters From Picketing Soldier's Funeral

Members of a small Missouri town banded together Saturday to block a controversial pastor and members of his Westboro Baptist Church from protesting the funeral of a fallen U.S. soldier, reports.

Hundreds of residents in Weston, Mo. -- as well as people as far away as California and Australia -- rallied in support of Sgt. First Class C.J. Sadell, who died from injuries suffered during a surprise attack in Afghanistan.

  • I believe everyone has their right to oppose something, but not at a funeral. A dear friend recently lost her son in battle and I cannot fathom the extra pain it would have caused her to see people picketing for the freedom her son fought so dearly for. It makes my heart ache even more when I imagine people just wanting to put their loved one at rest. :(
