Fred Phelps is a piece of shit.
If his name is unfamiliar, this is the same ass that organized the picketing of Matthew Sheppards funeral, delivering a hate filled sermon letting the funeral attendees know that Sheppard deserved to die and he was in hell. His church’s website is the lovely GodHatesFags.com.
Well, apparently, Phelps and his feeble-minded cult members have taken to picketing military funerals because, according to Phelps, these service men deserved to die. The signs they carry sport such sayings as “God Hates America” and “God Hates Fags.”
But what does that have to do with servicemen?
According to the Westboro church, these solders are not heroes. They are lazy, incompetent idiots looking for jobs because they’re not qualified for honest work. They were raised on a steady diet of gay propaganda in the home, on TV, in church, in mass media – everywhere. Therefore, with full knowledge of what they were doing, they voluntarily joined a gay-infested army to fight for a gay-run country now utterly and finally forsaken by God who Himself is fighting against that country. “They turned America over to fags; They’re coming home in body bags.” http://www.unogateway.com/vnews/display.v/ART/2006/03/07/440cee047af3
Well, now, because of these tool and his picketing, many States are creating laws regulating where this guy can picket during the funeral. I have a better idea.
A few years back, the KKK came to town to march. This was a big who-to-do, as you can imagine. What finally happened was they were given police protection as they marched, so nothing would happen to them. I didn’t like that at all. I’m all for freedom of protest and marches and such, but I don’t want to have my tax money funding their protection for their safety.
If they have something to say, let them say it. Let the people decide whether or not they want to listen.
Same goes to Phelps. Let him picket all he wants. But make it clear that he will not be protected and anything that happens will be his own fault.
Then you bring in some Seals, Rangers or Airborne troops to have a “talk” with Phelps and his lemmings.
I’m fairly certain that would be the last time he pickets a funeral.
Or anything else, for that matter.
