Amazing how some groups can hide behind the word "church." Radicals hiding behind the disguise of "faith" are nothing more than terrorists. These terrorists hate so much, they are willing to even show up at funerals to haunt the dead, and their loved ones.There isn't one thing spiritual about picketing and bashing others. They'll meet God soon enough. In the meantime, they'll continue to be brainwashed and brainwash others. Anyone think that the leader of Westboro Baptist Church wants to be another David Karish?

First of all these wacko people from west baptist church need to leave KIDS, AND SCHOOLS out of their unholy protests! Actually they need to leave everyone that does not want them around alone! But school, and church are supposed to be seperated, as per the laws now! So if they (west baptist) show up to picket at a school they should ALL be arrested for trespassing! And 2nd these wackos need to understand it is the very military, and fallen soldiers their protesting against that fight for the rights of freedom of speech, so if it was'nt for the brave men and women who serve, and fight for our country, and our rights, then they wouldn't even be allowed to go out and protest in the first place! I think all this wacked out church wants is publicity, and one of these days they are going to protest the wrong fallen soldiers family, and the fallen soldiers family is going to go ballistic on them! Which these wackos will fully deserve!!!
