Westboro Baptist Church is at it again. I know there were some volunteers who went to AZ to the funerals of the political shooting to block them. I live about 2 hours away, but I would be willing to make the trip to block these unChristian folks from making this tragic day even worse.
What really gets me is the fact that they are doing this as revenge because the man who sued them was from PA. I though the Bible said you were to turn the other cheek?

I'd start sending the WBC a bill for all the extra police protection the group seems to get. Their protest incite violence and that puts everyone in danger, not just the members but the mourners as well.

I wish I did live nearby. I'd be more than happy to help block their "protest". I hope anyone who does attend will do it with dignity--ignore the WBC bastards while providing a buffer between them and the funeral, and simply show quiet support for the family who's grieving. I think the WBC thrives on attention. If the attention is diverted to the family and friends of the deceased, and the WBC is ignored, maybe they'll eventually go away.

No. I live about 1 1/2 hours away, and they're simply not worth my time! However, I WILL send a donation to the Patriot Guard, in the hopes that it will help them afford a trip to do their thing!! :o)
