Massive FLorida FReep Needed To Protect Dead Soldier's Family From Freaks During His Funeral
multiple, Bos Herald, WCVB, St. Pete Times, | MB-26

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 don’t care less what you think. We have one goal: publish. We’ve 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?

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 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?

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.

I don't believe this BS,

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.
