If you know who this group is, please freepmail me. I understand no one wants to give them any free publicity but I'd like to know who they are.

Horrid and certainly not "people of God" as I know them.

If this were my son, I would have a simple graveside service at 12:01 am on 7/4. Never let the freaks have the last word.

I would never let freaks like this have any influence on any aspect of life or death. Cept maybe their own.

I just keep wondering where the Baptist Church stands on this issue and why are they allowing this strange person to be leading a flock under the name of the Baptist Church.

I've never known them to sit back and ignore this type of flagrant abuse of a congregation. It's really puzzling to me.

This group is so vile that they defy description. A TV station identified the group as an extreme "religious right" group. I've no idea if that description is from the group's self-description or not.

What they are doing at the burials of our fallen heroes is absolutely vile. Here's a couple links with more detail of their recent activities:

Sounds like a ROAD TRIP.
St. Pete is only 1050 miles from me. 15 hours drive time.
I know a couple of Marines that would love to help out with the driving!
Is anyone starting a list, site, something, to somehow keep track of who might show up? Someone from FR running this thing in St. Pete?
Let me know.
Thanks.

How about dropping a restraining order on this dip and his crew.
Florida jail time could set a precedence for coming events.

I know a preacher who runs a little Baptist church. He's very similar in nature to this guy. The entire congregation is family. Talks about "fags", "Ni_ _ ers", etc., etc., from the pulpit. (You get the idea. No offense anyone, please.)He's a very hate filled man. Loves the little kids too, especially the girls.

I agree with you. Not sure why these little pools of filth are allowed to operate under the Baptist banner. Could be the home office doesn't know they exist.

God is sovereign. He will deal with them in His own way.
Almost (I say ALMOST) makes you wish you could be there to watch these types of people fry.

Almost every county has a local veterans group, VFW, whatever....this simply has to GET OUT TO OUR VETS! And if any of us get wind that this is going to happen around our area, we need to get a letter out to the main newspaper...perhaps a letter to the editor...since conservatives still read...and get some local uproar started.

At some point...this is going to get violent...after it does...it will stop.

Not all Baptists Churches operate under the same banner. There are many different Baptists associations such as Southern Baptists association. There are also some Baptists churches that are just independent.

This guy is sick and does not represent God. What he does is wrong. You should never interrupt a funeral of anyone especially of someone who died defending their rights to protest.

I remember when this guy protest the funeral of Matthew Sheppard. They had signs saying God hates fags and all that. No matter what anyone thinks of homosexuals and that whole topic,It is just wrong what he did to that family and to all these families. A family should have the right to grieve in peace. This guy does need to be stopped.

I live in Orlando and would love to be there but I have to work. I hope enough veterans and pro - Americans show up to show the family that we do care and are grateful for the sacrifice their son made.

I would say

"God wants me to kick your @$$."

Later, when they die I would go and spit on their graves.

I had a third cousin over there...don't know him that well, but he's still a blood relative.

This is probably the Westboro Baptist CHurch. It's run by Fred Phelps. They have a couple of web sites:

Unfortunately, we won't be in Florida this weekend. We're going to DC for the fireworks!

Otherwise, I couldn't think of a better way to spend the Fourth than defending this man and his family's honor. It makes me just sick.

As a Marine Corp vet, this kind of sh$t turns my stomach. I am on the other side of the state but this may be worth taking a ride over for. We have had enough of these bastards disrespecting our country and the people that have died that gave them the right to spew their hatred.

you can change your locale and pick any state you want and copy it in each state. But, it takes a long time so you might not want to do every single state. Just visit your profile page by clicking on your screen name.

A Topeka, Kansas freak has announced plans to disrupt the burial with chants, bull horns and signs that read, "Thank God for IEDs" "God Hates America," "This Soldier Is In Hell," and "God Wanted This Soldier Dead."

If I had nothing left to live for, I would go to this funeral and shoot anyone who attempted to disrupt it in this fashion.

I would aim for groins.

I have plans already on top of plans. I can say this. These Kansas freaks did not attend any of Terri Schiavo's Vigils.

FIND YOUR PEOPLE: If freepers are meeting in St. Pete, someone better make a large free republic sign so you csn get together. Rally for America in Clearwater, freepers everywhere but not together.

Fred Phelps, the sick protestor, was a fundraiser for Al Gore and even one of his delegates in 1988.

I really don't want to disrupt a funeral but that sure would make a good freep poster.

I thought Fred Phelps was looney for dancing on the grave of an AIDS victim, but this is beyond insanity. I cannot believe it; I'm just stunned beyond belief.

This is the same Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) that picketed the funeral of Matthew Shepard, the homosexual who was tortured and murdered a few years back. These scum, often carrying "God hates fags" signs, also picket funerals of gays who died from aids. They proclaim on their website that Pope John Paul II, Ronald Reagan, and Reggie White are now in hell.

WBC claims America bombed their church. They say that Washburn University students bombed their church and God is punishing America by killing our troops. WBC is apparently organizing demonstrations at numerous funerals of our troops.

In the same sense that WBC is taking outrageous action against our troops, Code Pink is likewise protesting the war at an incredibly inappropriate site, i.e., at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC, where many of most severely wounded troops from Iraq and Afghanistan are treated. FReepers have been peacefully counter-protesting the Pinkos.

A Marine who lost his foot to enemy action in Fallujah has told me that he doesn't want his fellow Marines and soldiers coming into Walter Reed Hospital only seeing the Code Pink war protestors. He stressed how important it was for FReepers to be there to peacefully counter the leftists' morale-sapping efforts.

If you can help counter this insult to wounded troops at Walter Reed this Friday night or on a later Friday night, please join us. Details are here:

Might be kinda cool to launch some bottle rockets about the same time their signs come out. I do have a problem with them falling over just as they ignite, though, so sometimes they shoot kinda low.
