Posted on 05/29/2006 7:38:54 PM PDT by kbfree

your family member or friend, has past. you walk out of the church to see and hear , protesters!! I lost two childhood friends in nam. and god as my judge,no religious sign would stop me from ripping them apart. I guess, i was the lucky one to be sent to germany. after seeing the way this country is going,sometimes i wonder. I would rather watch the jimmy hoffa movie.

Cant blame you one bit pal....disgusting vermin posing as christians not caring a hoot about those in grief.
After all, Jesus would have us comfort those who mourn and not antagonize them. They are CINO's (Christian in name Only)

Signed on 5/30, writes like a 20 something, and claims to be a '68 Nam vet?
Is this post already gone?

There is a group of 'christians' who see it as their mission from God to go about saying "Thank God for dead soldiers".
Hannity and Colmes interviewed one of these so called 'christians, lowercase 'c' on purpose, and she was a total freaking moonbat.


Welcome to FR by the by.
Medea Benjamin's group had a list of protest no-no's up... and one of the protest no-no's was protesting outside of a hospital.
Guess what Medea Benjamin's group does?
The left lives to crawl through gutter slime.

The 21 rifle salute, could always lower their barrels just a tad and swap the M-16s for Riot Guns.

"..no religious sign would stop me from ripping them apart..."

I figure that's what they would WANT you to do soldier. You see, That would give them even more media attention, plus the money from suing you.

What Jimmy Hoffa movie?

Protesting a funeral is a new kind of low I think we can agree.

In fact I would categorize it as fighting words.

I agree with you. It is revolting that some Christians do this. But it still probably isn't the best thing to post a short, non-news vanity on your first day. Just a tip and Welcome to Freerepublic!

Actually, I believe the Phelps Phreaks fall into the exception for "fighting words." Not that I'm advocating any violence, you understand. If these people aren't going to repent I prefer they go to Hell the slow way, and don't get any money from suing cities or patriots.

Thanks, I can't remember what Freeper I stole it from, but he advised me the text is lifted almost verbatim from an action message in "By Dawn's Early Light."

For the record, I agree with you.

I do not see a need for federal legislation on the matter, however.

kbfree, only drive-by first time posters do a thread like this. Prove you're not one of those by having the courtesy to return to your own thread. Since you posted it, you're supposed to reply on it.

Because national cemeteries are under federal jurisdiction the legislation had to be at the federal level.

I assume the federal legislation is to cover gaps in jurisdiction, which is why it only covers national cemetaries.

I think this is what you are referring to.

The women is a maggot.

Yes.
That is the 'little c christian' I was specifically mentioning.
I will not grant her the honorific of her name being mentioned.
But yes, that is the 'perp'.
