We may be getting to the point where our country can only be saved by "something ugly."

I just don't want "ugly" to occur at a funeral for one of our troops. I would like the stopped before they get there.

I'm not calling for locking up war protesters; they have that right. I want to see the Sedition laws enforced against our domestic enemies like Durbin and Kennedy for providing aid and comfort to our enemies.

If comments they make on the Senate floor are being reprinted in Al Jazeera in order to embolden the jihadists, that is the very definition of sedition.

That's a very slippery slope. The folks who criticized the military actions in Somalia and Serbia could have face the same charge. However you see the distinction, do you trust the courts to see it?

If comments they make on the Senate floor are being reprinted in Al Jazeera in order to embolden the jihadists, that is the very definition of sedition.

That's the one group of folks you definitely can't go after. Members of Congress can't be prosecuted for anything they say while on the jub onder the speechas and debates clause of the Constitution.

"I'm not calling for locking up war protesters; they have that right."

They have a right to *speak* against the war.

In my view, that right does not extend to actions that inconvenience, distress, or endanger others. They have a right to speak, but they don't have a right to try and force others to listen.

These Kansas freaks did not attend any of Terri Schiavo's Vigils.

Maybe that's a good thing, had they picketed with "God is punishing America with new age euthanasia" or some such thing, they would have (gasp, youknowwhoforbid) helped the anti euthanasia cause. No they just want to be a colossal bloody nuisance that, if they can help it, helps nothing. Just like Satan does.

You got that right. The ADL is a very scary organization, and I would tend to disbelieve anything they wrote.

I don't think their vices even rise to the level of debatability. Whatever nobility their first vision had, they are now going to the same hell in the same handbasket as the Southern Poverty Law Center is. When a group comes out in favor of "gay rights" (in the sense of governmentally enforced privileges) they have certifiedly gone off the deep end. Dr. Martin Luther King would be ashamed.

Phelps and his Pukeyview 'Baptist' Church have a deservedly vile reputation. In pegging them, the ADL proves that even a stopped clock is right twice a day. But "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" is not a motto to trust here.

The protest has been canceled

Planned funeral protest
apparently canceled

Friday, July 1, 2005
A radical
preacher
had planned
to disrupt a
local
soldier's
funeral on
Monday,
the Fourth
of July.

The Rev. Fred Phelps, pastor of Westboro Baptist
Church in Kansas, and some followers planned to
be at the funeral of Sgt. James Stewart, who died
last week in Iraq. Stewart spent most of his
boyhood in St. Petersburg and his mother still lives
there.

Phelps and his followers believe that the deaths of
American soldiers is God's retribution for society's
acceptance of gay Americans. They have been
travelling the country for several weeks, conducting
protests at soldier's funerals.

The minister's
plan outraged
many, including
some local radio
DJs. Those DJs
say they've found a way to keep the protestors
away.

The DJs on the Big Boys morning show on 98
Rock saw the Bay News 9 story, and they called a
spokesperson for the protestors, Shirley Phelps.

Puddin' and
Phatty, as the DJs
are known, cut a
deal -- air time
for a family's
peace.

"We were talking on the air," Phatty said. "And I
said 'What can we do to have you not come to our
city to not do this, to let the family mourn in peace.'
"

"She wanted a platform," Puddin' said.

"She wanted airtime without us yelling back at her,"
Phatty said.

"I tell you how I would come down," Phelps
answered. "Let me answer the question. I won't
come down if you allow me to speak without being
interrupted."

So for 45 minutes the DJs asked Phelps questions,
and did not interrupt her answers.

By the end of the show, Phelps said the protest
was off. They would not come to St. Petersburg.

Stewart's funeral, to be held Monday at Park
Street Baptist Church at 11 a.m., is open to the
public.

If freepers feel compelled to protect a military family from this group, they must be extremists and we were holding a Vigil for Terri, not something radical or over the top per Terri's blood relatives.

The Kansas extremists imo would have made things worse for those praying and talking to the media. The police would have loved to take everyone away in a paddy wagon for Auschwitz Woodside.

Oh, I mean they would have actually stirred up some colorful public commentary had they did their "America is heading to hell" thing at a Terri vigil. Kind of like a peacock in a flock of sparrows.

Just got back from the funeral.Big turnout.Church pkng lot was full as was the Walgreens next door.Police and media were there also,but kept their distance.Very quiet+orderly.No hassles.About a dozen or so of us stayed outside to keep an eye out.A member of LoneBikers(not 100% sure about name)was handing out yellow ribbons for mourners to wear.We ran out to Bay Pines Cemetary ahead of the funeral,and again no protestors.

My guess is that the organizers could not afford the bus ticket from Kansas, and could not find anyone from Florida who would pick up the torch.

Is this some sort of sick joke? Are there really people like this?

Frankly, these folks sound utterly deranged.

My two cents is that anyone who choses to defy these folks be prepared for trouble. Unless you are willinng to stand your ground, and look into the whites of their eyes, you have no business being down there.

Frankly, I was not aware that they had taken that support position on gay rights, but for purposes of our interchange I'll accept that assertion.Though I'm vehemently against that (gay rights support) I still won't lamblast them (the ADL) on an issue in which they DO take the HIGH ground. I realize that the ADL is full of those of the 'liberal' persuasion and that would account for that policy of "INCLUSION", a mainstay of the RATS "big tent" philosophy. The "big tent" idea is strictly one of a big tent of VOTERS, though the left-leaning RATS would have one believe it is the big tent full of different kinds of people. For them...It's ALL ABOUT THE VOTE TALLY!

I think we're on the same page.

Thanx for the responses.I didn't meet any Freepers outside,but lots of people in the church that i didn't see.Several of us went over to Bay Pines before the service was over.I drove around the park adjacent to the cemetary for a quick look.Large boat ramp,picnic areas,and a jogging trail.Very nice.I believe it's a part of Bay Pines(?).Bay Pines Cemetary itself is very impressive.

Well, some at Terri's Vigil this year do think that America is going to hell in a handbasket but they weren't screamin' it at the top of their lungs.

I'm glad the St. Pete protest was cancelled. This area is controversial enough as is.
