  • Of course I believe it.

    Just like with the Elizabeth Edwards funeral.

    These people protest any "event" that gets them attention. Any event that is going to have any sort of national news coverage (or news coverage of any sort) they will be at.

    The people do not do what they do because of "religion". They do what they do to get attention and make money. And sadly, people keep feeding their little beast that they created with all the attention they could ever hope for and then some. They will also make their money at events like this, events they protest. Phelps and his eldest children are all lawyers (Phelps himself was a civil rights attorney for years), they make their money by sueing cities/towns/counties and individual's who "infringe" upon their legal right to protest. They do everything by the legal books, and they use legal-eze to sue those who hassle them at their protest, and they do a good job of winning.

  • I think it's good that they have enough notice for the community to gather to protest the protesters. Even if it means just blocking their view of the funeral and singing over their calls of hatred.   I hope the community does what it can to protect the families these hate mongers spew their venom on.

  • They should give the nutty shooter his gun back and plant him right in the middle of them.

  • They are greedy attention whores. Nothing else. They are NOT Christians by any stretch of the word.

    Carpy, I believe we agree on something!
    What is their reason for protesting a child's funeral? They are SICK.
