Skip to comments.PHELPS FAMILY TO PROTEST FUNERALS OF VICTIMS OF THE MN 35W BRIDGE COLLAPSE

I am writing about an issue that concerns me greatly. I reside in Southern MN and, like everyone in this area, was shocked and saddened by the recent tragedy that has occurred in Minneapolis. The Phelps Family of the Westboro Baptist Church (or "WBC") in Topeka, KS, the same who picketed funerals of fallen soldiers back from Iraq, plans to picket the funerals of the victims of the bridge collapse. I am severely outraged at this disrespectful display of hate, and I am certain that others would feel the same way were they to know of these plans. I am telling you this in hopes that this will be made public, and that others will be inspired to take legal and respectful action to deter any additional trauma to the families of these victims. Below is a link where you may find the flier that advertises the intentions of the "WBC" to protest and preach at the funerals of these innocent people.
Thank you! I thought I was the only one to think this. I’ve had more than one “moderate republican” throw them at me as a reason why they’ve questioned voting for anybody endorsed by the religious right.
There is a special place in hell for these @#@$@$@$@$@$@$@$@@@!#@$’s.
“Homosexuals are causing bridges to collapse, cities to flood, hurricanes to strike, planes to fly into buildings, airliners to crash, and trains to wreck. How do they do it? Gays must be the most powerful group in history. Im impressed.”
The Jews can pull off some feats too. Just ask the Islamists.
They are only as good as the attention they get.
Frankly they are looking for more air time from someone to prevent them from protesting.
Let them protest. Dont give in to extortion.
If any group did not deserve it it is this.
These people are not worthy of attention or consideration of any kind, but the families of the innocent victims of this tragedy are, as are the victims themselves. These people, whatever their beliefs, are being punished simply for being at the wrong place at the wrong time. To defend the funerals from them and give them attention in that regard is, to me, a much lesser injustice than to let the funerals be ruined and the families be further crushed by their outrageous antics.
Are you saying Dubya is gay?
That is just weird. I could maybe see them protesting the memorials for the soldiers (though I don’t agree with it), because they are protesting the war, but this is just bizare. People like this should not be allowed to reproduce.
Id make it my entire job to defend people who beat up the Phelps family.”
And I would give to the defense fund.
I think it’s just a matter of time until one or all Phelps’ get themselves killed.Maybe by cops shooting at snakes.
How would you tell a snake from a Phelps?
I’m continually amazed some decent God fearing fellow hasn’t allowed phelps et. al. to be personally introduced to the Almighty yet.
That is not true. As much as I would like to think they are fake, I remember them getting publicity for protesting the funerals of gays who died of AIDS. They were doing that for years before they switched to protesting the funerals of our soldiers. Guess they thought that would get them even more publicity.
Phelps family are trying to provoke so they can sue.
More on Phelps
NO cheers, unfortunately.
