From all accounts, 19-year-old Lance Cpl. Adam Kaiser lived a quiet life before he was killed serving with the Marines in Iraq.
His funeral service, however, may not be that quiet.
A church group that protests funerals of soldiers killed in Iraq with signs that read "God Hates America" and "Thank God for Dead Soldiers" plans to be there....

What kind of "church" is this supposed to be?
The media uses idiots like this "church" group to make us all look bad.
But, the idiots are sure helping.
These jerks don't have a clue what GOD thinks.
I would just get a huge American Flag and hang it across the street so that you would not be able to see these morons.
I'm convinced Fred Phelps is a self-loathing homosexual himself. It's one thing to be against gays, but another to be completely obsessed with them. I wonder what they would find on this guy's computer.
It's hard to be religious when certain people never get struck by lightning.
I am sure it's that idiot Fred Phelps again.
Yep; I'd bet my next paycheck on it.
And yes, these bastards seriously need a greeting from the land of beatings. If they ever show up in my town, well, let's just say it won't go well. For them.
And what, in their pea brained minds, was the excuse for people dying in the Revolutionary war? This "church" is as far from God and sanity as any satanic group could ever be. Good luck on judgement day, jerks.
You probably aren't far from guessing right on that idea or some other type of perversion
Time to amend the Constitution.
Fred Phelps' personal church, which apparently relies on a peculiar edition of the Bible, in which every single verse reads "Thou shalt hate gays". All teachings are derived from that verse. Must hate America because America tolerates gays. Must hate the U.S. military because it defends America, which tolerates gays. Right after 9/11 he and his little circus troupe were running around with signs that read "Thank God for 9/11" -- he explained that the attacks killed lots of people in NYC which is "full of gays" so it was a good thing. The only reason he's still alive is that people who believe in Second Amendment rights also believe in First Amendment rights.
Does Phelps remind anyone of someone from the Sawyer (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) family?
Time for the headache guy to appear.
Aw Geez, not this sh** again.
It's no kind of church. Westboro "Baptist Church" is basically a cult made up of the family members of Fred Phelps. They all live on the same block as the "church." To find their website, do a search on "god hates fags." I think among their earliest publicity was their protest at the funeral of Matthew Shepherd, the gay who was killed in Wyoming. I haven't looked at the site for a while, but I believe they justify their presence at soldiers' funerals and their joy at these deaths by alledging that the federal government bombed their "church." They like it when IED's take out our troops.
They were also at the funeral of Chief Justice Rendquist.
This group is so far out that they have to be a front for something. They do not represent conservatives and they certainly do not represent Christians. I'll take the risk of being judgmental and say flat out that they are not Christians at all. And anyone who has any familiarity with Christianity --even some of its more "out there" manifestations -- should know that. The problem is that they represent (I'd say, misrepresent) themselves as being fundamentalist Christians and the media accepts them as such.
In the past, Rolling Thunder and others have "masked" these protests o the family does not have to see or hear. Do you know if anyone is countering these nuts so as to protect the family?
