Posted on 06/29/2005 4:07:34 PM PDT by MindBender26
This is a vanity post, but trust me, a well sourced one. (I'm an old network newsie and have about 8 more good sources on this than Rather had for his typeface fiasco.)
Here are the details:
A SF SGT E-5, James Stewart, will be buried in St. Petersburg, Florida on July 4, 2005. It's wholly appropriate that he be buried on our nation's birthday, because Sergeant Stewart gave his life for our country.... and all of us.
He was killed in Iraq by a roadside bomb, call an IED in MilSpeak. IED is short for "Improvised Explosive Device." It can be an old artillery shell wired to an electric blasting cap or just some explosives and a few pounds of rusty nails for shrapnel. They are nasty, and they are killing our men and women in Iraq.
His family has had time to get ready for the trauma of his funeral, but there is no way they can be ready for the latest insult to both his memory and all that is civilized.
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."
This is not a sick joke. The following is exurpted from a story on WCVB in Boston:
"A Marblehead soldier who was killed in Afghanistan is scheduled to be laid to rest, but a group from Kansas is expected to try to disrupt the services and police are on alert for any problems. Staff Sgt. Christoper Piper, 43, served in both Afghanistan and Iraq and was awarded a bronze star for his combat service."
"(The protesters) claim U.S. soldiers like Piper are dying because the country is being punished for its tolerance of what they see as immoral behavior, such as homosexuality. The group protested several weeks ago in Dracut and Lexington, Mass., carrying signs depicting homosexual sex, handing our leaflets with the message "Thank God for IEDs"
One little girl wrote them (the "protesters") regarding the pain they caused another dead soldier's family.
The protesters wrote back "We serve God; not your vulgar dumb ass. So we dont care less what you think. We have one goal: publish. Weve accomplished that goal with you. Have a nice day" (end of letter)
I would name names of these bastards and link to pictures of their vile signs, but JimRob doesn;t want it on FR. I agree with his position. Trust me, they are beyond belief.
These creeps are "protesting" at Sgt. Stewart's funeral at the Park Street Baptist Church, 3901 Park Street North (Park and 39th Ave North, about a mile south of Tyrone Mall) at 11:00 AM on Monday the 4th.
Since they want publicity, they will be there early for the cameras.
There will only be a few of them (they usually fly in from Kansas, but be on the lookout for vehicles with Kansas license plates.)
At some of their prior sick protests, vets and others were able to "convince" the sickos to vacate the area before the family arrived. This is not a call for violence, but I'm sure many of us can be very convincing when we see signs like these.
If any of us really give a damn about the men and women currently serving in harm's way, then this is the least we can do to support them and their families.
Sgt. Stewart volunteered to pay the ultimate price for our freedom. What are we willing to do for him?
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.
I will get him on it when he gets back from riding!
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.
They were in Marblehead, Mass. also:
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.
Yes. We can pummel them with something soft and fuzzy. Souter's brain?
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.
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.
Here is a link to another good story about this issue.
At some point...this is going to get violent...after it does...it will stop.
I will be happy to change my plans for the day and drive over to St. Pete from Lakeland. He doesn't want us Polk county boys to confront him.
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.
Are ball bats and tazers optional or required?
Florida FReepers...you have an urgent issue in your state.
Please contact MindBender26 if you want more details.
Foriduh Voter...FYI!!!! This is OUTRAGEOUS!
This is probably the Westboro Baptist CHurch. It's run by Fred Phelps. They have a couple of web sites:
No, I am not kidding. Also:
I am not kidding, either. I wish I were.
Got the ping, Trussell.
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.
If you can't attend, please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers.
[[This thread has just added to the FreeRepublic Florida Politics list by adding the keyword "Florida".]]
I didn't either until I just ran an altavista search on the string "Tank God for IED's." Their site was the first hit on the list. These are some seriously troubled people.
I'll be there,
Please Freep me with the details.
So, whattya say? You think Grasshopper, Porcupine, Darth Mittleidos, ChuxsterS and Baby Hoagy need to tell Phelps he needs to Sh*t in his hat? I'm tempted to bring Miss Ursa...
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.
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.
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.
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:
FReepers vs. Code Pink at Walter Reed, June 24 (Join us July 1!)
Well .. if I was a Baptist .. I'd already be on the phone making a lot of waves.
and an al gore supporter in 2000
I wish I was in Kansas. A trip for them to Florida should be out of the question.
I detect the stench of Fred Phelps.
Godspeed Sgt. God bless your family and keep them safe.
To the NCOIC of the Honor Guard; Issue live rounds!
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.
Just google his name and you'll find out what a jackass he is.
The freak won't make it to the service - and very well may be attending his own funeral instead.
gee freddie, whatever happpened to "love the sinner, but hate the sin?"
you hate filled democrat, I wouldn't pi$$ on you if you were on fire.
