    My friend who committed suicide after coming home from Iraq had a funeral where we thought this was going to happen. A local chapter of Harley riders came by and stood outside the church and blocked the protesters. I am so glad people like that care and came to protect the funeral from stupid people that protest.

    What makes me sick is the image that one "church" is setting for other churches. I am religious, I love God, I also love my country and I served for my country. If religions would read the entire bible instead of just picking and choosing what they read maybe they would see that (IMHO) there is nothing wrong with war. God himself started and finished many wars. It pisses me off that a church would make religion look so hatefull to the public! I'm not trying to preach to anyone, I just wanted to put in my 2 cents here. Not all of Gods people are against war and fighting. Thank you to all that serve this country and keep it free!

    Many facets of this whole thing bother me-

    1. That a "church" would ignore so much of the Bible to further their agenda.

    2. That this same church would choose to infringe on grieving parents rights to exercise their own.

    3. That their reason for protesting isn't even about the "right" or "wrong" about war, but as a fringe element of a crusade against homosexuality.

    4. That our Supreme Court would side with them against those who fight and die for this country. I can understand supporting the first amendment. They even likened it to having to side with Hustler against Jerry Falwell. But I too know wrong when I see it, and this is WRONG!

    5. Doing all this in the name of God is 5X WRONG, and an embarassment to what Jesus was sacrificed for. They'll get theirs, but not soon enough.

    Saw where one of the families sued, lost, and had to pay the costs, on top of losing their loved one. 100X WRONG!

    Where is this country heading? Down the tubes. We've lost sight of what is important, in favor of every single petty persons' rights. It's no longer about what's good for the majority, only what every minority thinks everyone else ought to give to them.

    Will stop before I'm way over the top, but I am sick of it all.

    Chris

    I'm tired of hearing about these fuck heads. Makes me sick every time I hear about it. How can you protest the funerals for the very soldiers who give them the freedom to be able to spew their bullshit all over the place.

    And if that's not already bad enough, they're also planning to protest the funeral of 7 children who died in central Pennsylvania in a house fire. They're claiming their deaths are a result of God's wrath for Pennsylvania.

    I ride with a veteran's group and we have unfortunately had the opportunity to attend funerals for deceased military members. The WBC assbags planned to protest this. The city fathers granted their permit for a protest. Their approved area was 3 miles from the funeral route, in an empty lot between the VFW and American Legion posts. :D
    Absolutely brilliant! They didn't show up.

    They did the same tactic in San Diego awhile back. The nut-jobs wanted to protest a high-profile funeral for a SEAL. Local authorities respected their right to protest.....so far from the site of the funeral that know one would ever know they were there.


    BTW- a few people have gone to jail for committing violent acts against these protesters. I can recall one guy (in OK if I remember right) that threw pepper spray into their protest.

    Its people like these that prompt me to encourage people to join the Patriot Guard. Regardless of these people's beliefs, its about the respect for the fallen. No family should have to mourn their loss with these people posting the signs they do around such a solemn ceremony.

    They are protesting against gay rights in a very roundabout way that is more about getting attention than anything.

    BTW- everyone is welcome here. There is no bad form. The forum is for military related threads, but is by no means military personnel only.

    They believe that God is judging America for it's tolerance on many social and cultural themes.

    I personally think they weren't hugged enough as children.

    godhatesfags.com is their website if you care to look at it. I personally have not seen it, and don't care to.

    The Stig is right, these people should be approved for protest, but far away from the funeral...far far away.

    They picket the military because we get the most attention for funerals. They believe that America has lost its values by believing homosexuality is OK and each death caused to an American is Gods righteous hand coming to strike us down for our ways. They don't just picket military, but any high profile death that will get them shock value attention from the news. They wanted to picket the death of the 9yo born on 9/11 that was killed in Arizona.

    IMO the news should blacklist them... thats the only reason they do this. The public shock value they receive from the news is what keeps them going. I doubt they'd have much cause to do anything if they knew their picketing was for nothing since it would never get posted publicly....
