Phelps' Group Protests At Soldier's Funeral

58 minutes ago

Members of the Rev. Fred Phelps' Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., are picketing military funerals, KMBC's Micheal Mahoney reported Friday.

The group has made national headlines for traveling throughout the country to picket gay churches, gay weddings, and the funeral of Matthew Shepard, a gay college student who was murdered in Wyoming in 1998.

Friday, about 15 members of the group -- some of them children -- picketed the funeral of a St. Joseph soldier who was killed in Iraq. Mahoney reported that the group stood across the road from the Grace Evangelical Church during the funeral of 21-year-old Spc. Edward Myers.

"The first sin was being a part of this military. If this young man had a clue and any fear of God, he would have run, and not walked, from this military," said protester Shirley Phelps-Roper. "Who would serve a nation that is godless and has flipped off, defiantly defied, defiantly flipped off, the Lord their God?"

One protester had an American flag tied to his belt that draped to the ground. He was holding a sign that read, "Thank God For IEDs," which are explosive devices used by insurgents to blow up military convoys.

Protesters said America has ignored the word of God, and those who defend the nation must pay a price.

"That's the first piece of solid evidence that you have that the young man is currently in hell," Phelps-Roper said.

"The soldier is in hell now, you believe?" Mahoney asked.

"Absolutely," Phelps-Roper said.

'Protesters Were Rude'

About a dozen veterans stood across the road from the protesters, and Mahoney reported that there were some harsh words and insults traded between the two groups. However, sheriff deputies were stationed about 100 yards away and there was no violence.

"The protesters were so rude -- were disrespectful," said veteran Jim Fields.

"Do I like it? No, I don't. But what can you say, it's a free country," said veteran Dave Campbell.

Veterans told KMBC that a member of the soldier's family shouted at the protesters to leave, and they left about 20 minutes after the funeral started. Mahoney reported that there was applause from veterans and other crowd members when the protesters left.

After the funeral was over, one of the mourners commented on the irony of the protesters showing up at a soldier's funeral.

"They shouldn't protest the funeral for a man who was out there dying to protect the rights that they're demanding they receive," said Marvin Russell.

Russell said he thinks the soldier's family saw the protesters.

"I think it saddened them. They didn't say anything outright, but you could tell by the way they looked down that this was a sad thing to do. They're already in mourning, they don't need people like this to make it worse," Russell said.

Myers was buried with full military honors in Leavenworth National Cemetery. He leaves behind a wife and two children.

One of the protesters said the group is planning to picket other military funerals.

I don't have anything to say about this quote...just wanted to quote it.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

Insurgents need to send an IED to Westboro Baptist Church. these people need to go to hell themselves cause they have apparently forgotten thier own faith that they peddle. Whatever happened to good will towards all men? Do onto others as you wish to be treated? Ignorant pieces of human garbage, i want to say more but enough ranting for now!

Can the critics still deny that the geometry of matter is directly related to the harmonic interweaving of light itself? There is no substance, in the absolute sense. We live in a reality of un-reality; all is an illusion and the stuff that dreams are made of. Our physical world is nothing more than a resonating ball of light and shade."

"If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern."

Yeah, those loonies did the same near here at a funeral at Fort Campbell a few months ago. Needless to say, the response of the people (both military and civilian) was overwhelmingly negative. These people (Phelp's group, that is) are truly fucked in the head...  :thumbdown:

Some people are just so deluded, it's not even funny, just sad. For fuck's sake...if 'God' is pissed at America, then he'll let us know! We don't need some nutjobs to tell us how 'He' feels.

this place is like frickin fox news.... can we be safe SOMEWHERE from pointless news that is reported simply to tug at people's emotions and get you blindly involved in something so trivial that it should be completely ignored?

Comparing this thread to Fox News is ridiculous, and shows a lack of intelligence and critical thinking skills by the previous poster.

It doesn't matter whether they are ignored or not; what they want is God's favor, not media time. Anyways, I believe the more people who know about this nonsense, the better. At least that way, people aren't suprised to see it.

I would love to go to a funeral of one of your relatives with a group of protestors shouting about how he or she is on their way to hell.

Would that seem trivial to you?

Yes, let's all become turtles, then.  That's the best solution, methinks.

Maybe your information sources and the tone and style of the presentation is what's bothering you? 

Or maybe you want a cheap way out so you don't have to stay informed.  It's real easy to drop out with a popular nonsensical justification.  That way you can just condemn all of it without really understanding "The News."  :rolleyes:
