Westboro Baptist "Church" to protest funeral of one of the SEALs killed in chopper crash

Posted on 08/15/2011 2:00:10 PM PDT by Thunder90

WBC intends to protest Wed., 8/17/2011 @ 9:30 a.m. - Memorial Service to begin at 10:00 a.m. (Church of the Resurrection, 13720 Roe Avenue, Leawood, KS) for Navy SEAL Matthew D. Mason. Buriel will be private at Arlington National Cemetery following services in Missouri and Kansas.

Mason, 37, was one of 30 Americans killed Aug. 6 when a helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan by Taliban insurgents. The chief petty officer had seven tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was severely wounded in 2004 in Fallujah, which was the largest battle of the Iraq War.

Mason, whose wife, Jessica, is from Omaha, was awarded the Bronze Star with Valor device, Purple Heart and numerous other commendations. His survivors include two children.

I wish someone would put Baptist in quotes too. They are BINOs.

I think his teamates will want to be up close and personal on this one. I can’t wait to see the video of these fools tangling with some bereaved SEALS.

I live in Topeka, home of Phelps. Over the weekend, there was a funeral service for a 19 year old soldier who died in an IED attack...the funeral was 20 miles from Topeka.

It was shown on the local news, tons of people and around 200 patriot guard motorcycles.

Guess what wasn’t on the news? - Phelps. Sure, his group was there....but the local media have become smart enough to completely ignore him.

No free press releases.

Wish the rest of the media would catch on.

The WBC is comprised of thugs out looking for reasons to file lawsuits, and typically causing the reason to file the lawsuit. This “church” should be identified as what it really is and shut down.

These guys want nothing in the world more than to get their asses kicked. All the lawsuits are standing by. They’ll be filing papers on the way to the hospital, and laughing all the way to the bank.

I am guessing and hoping this ends poorly for those vile pretenders.
yes Yes I know, htey have the right to do. The Patriot guard and hundreds of citizens will make sure these POS don’t get close
In the process it would sure be a shame if a motorcycle accidently ran into one or more
accidents happen every day

One day, like all of us, they will meet their maker.

None of us can live up to the Lord's standards, but only a few seek out ways to pervert them.

Say it ain’t so! I’m sure their Seal buddies will be real understanding about something like that. Wouldn’t it be ironic if somebody blew up their mini-van...

The only reason they get their money from lawsuits is dumb juries award them taxpayer’s money.

Giving respect to my Baptist friends, I believe this is a more accurate fix.

Some day, somewhere the WBC trolls are going to be vile at the wrong funeral. Some father or brother unhinged by grief is going trump the First Amendment with article 38 or article 45 . I am in no way soliciting violence but these pos are playing with a lethal force and it will come to them one day.

It's more complicated than these. These guys aren't pushing an agenda. They don't want converts, and they don't have demands. They're looking for a cash settlement via legal action. Nothing more, nothing less. It's the courts these guys are chasing, not the cameras.

So why not do the same to them? Start filing civil suit after civil suit about the “distress” they have caused the grieving families and how someone can’t work, or be a husband or wife, etc, as a result.

Sure the lawsuits may lose, but if you can drain their money from them and keep them in constant court, maybe they wouldn’t have time to pursue this extortion scheme.

Just a thought.

Given that these fallen are our Military; do not understand why this is not considered a 'giving of aid and comfort ' to our enemy'. Altogether treasonous, IMHO...

. Do these people live in a 'protected enclave'? Are they normal by other measures...do their kids go to public schools...Do they otherwise access Government benefits. All to ask if they are - in addition to their being disgusting human beings - just total hypocrites as well.

Amazing how while they were out protesting they left the iron on and their house burned down.

I have been thinking that when they have a church member’s funeral there should be a massive out-pouring to show our reaction to their behavior.

The SEALS have enough discipline not to do anything. I hope. The PGR, of which I am an proud member, on the other hand, cares much less about discipline, and are more likely to express their true feeling.

Rest in Peace SEALS, and all other members of the military who have given their most to our great Nation. Thank you.
