Fred Phelps: Part II

Posted by ALmod on November 24, 2006

Now, this is what I’m begging you to do. If you can get to the area, please go to one of these funerals. Get there early. Form a barrier between those attending the funeral and these people so that the dead can be shown proper respect and so that their families can mourn in peace. They don’t deserve to have to endure this. You don’t have to yell back at the WBC group. Just stand there and respect the dead and shield family and friends. There is the possibility that the family may ask you to leave. If that happens, just respect the family’s wishes and leave. Hopefully, local police departments will also be there to enforce Alabama’s new law, requiring such activities to be 500 feet away

The Patriot Guard Riders, known to do this at the funerals of our fallen soldiers, will not likely show up, since (as far as I know) they only show up at the funerals of soldiers. Therefore, it’s up to the rest of us on this one. Hopefully, the WBC group will not show up, but there is no guarantee.

    Hundreds attended (Nicole) Ford’s funeral, including several of the 39 other students who were on the bus.

    Protesters from Westboro Baptist Church from Topeka, Kan., set up across the street and about 100 yards down from the Pulaski Pike church before the funeral. The group frequently pickets soldiers’ funerals and spreads an anti-homosexual/anti-America message.

    City buses were parked in front of the protesters’ cordoned-off picket space, and drivers going to the funeral saw barely a glimpse of them. Across the street, counter-pickets held signs that said, “God is love,” “Judge not and ye shall not be judged” and “Let them grieve in peace.”
