Hate group to picket Kansas City funerals
Times of Israel ^ | 14 Apr 14 | Rebecca Shimoni Stoil

WASHINGTON – The Westboro Baptist Church, an extremist organization known for its anti-gay activism, announced that it will picket the funerals of the three people killed in Sunday afternoon’s shooting attacks at two Kansas City Jewish sites.

The church, which has famously picketed funerals of US military personnel and has protested against the American Jewish community, sent out a tweet shortly after the shooting saying, “Thank God for shootings at Overland Park KS jewish centers! Westboro to picket funerals. God did not passover.”

I guess worshipers of Satan can be called a church.

Can this be labeled hate speech?

I really think these people are Democrat party plants to discredit real Christians. Sort of like the Nazis’ burning the Reichstag and blaming the Communists.

I wonder about that too, but, then, a lot of people cannot hate the sin without hating the sinner.

It almost happened last week in Oklahoma when they showed up to rant about the children killed in the Oklahoma tornado. And they were run out of town.

Who knows who these fruit cakes are, but yes, their goal is to discredit real Christians.

You're half right. They don't do it to discredit Christians, they do it because they are a family of lawyers and there's money in it.

Phelps was a disbarred lawyer, founder of the Phelps Chartered law firm, and a former civil rights activist. He sought public office four times as a member of the Democratic Party.

fred phelps, Sr died recently. But when he was at a nursing home his son wanted the protestors to stop protesting outside the nursing home. Probably the Synogogue will have a system in place to prevent these lowlifes from protesting

.being in Kansas City and knowing members of the Overland Park Police Department along with many other people the Johnson County Kansas Sheriff’s Department, I can guarantee you these people will not disrupt the funeral for this precious family.

.the Church of the Resurrection has approximately 10,000 members in their congregation. Pastor Adam Hamilton is one of the best known preacher’s in the Kansas City area. there will be plenty of protection in the area to prevent shooting this heinous search for me being even close to the church.

Hopefully the people attending the funeral will run them off like they were run off from Moore, Oklahoma earlier this month.

True. I agree with free speech, even when it offends. I’m not sure I could hold it against anyone who punched the men in the nose.

The people from the Westboro Baptist Church, those who picket funerals, are servents of Satan rather than servents of God. No servents of God would play on the grieving at a time when they don’t feel like fighting back. In other words, the Westboro group is a bunch of cowards.
Let’s see what happens when some group decides to organize and fight back. This should and will happen one day. It’s only a matter of when.
