Have had to deal with them twice now.. Once when they picketed at the White House Easter Egg roll in 2007. Once for a soldiers funeral.. Living in KC, we have to see them with amazing frequency.. Wish they would all just go away (that's the nicest way I can put it!)
Very cool. There is a special place reserved in Hades for that cult.

Anytime I see that cult (and IMO they are not a religion....but a cult) I get a little sick feeling in the bottom of my stomach. I have seen them "protest" at solider s funeral and Hell may be too good for those "people" for lack of a better name.
It is good to see how the nut jobs were blocked. I hope everyone sees how and it can be repeated every time that bunch shows up. Good job on the block.
This young man was killed for a stupid, selfish reason of some spoiled punk who couldn't live by the rules of honor. It would really be a insult for this Westboro bunch of "wack a doodles" were to make any more of a impression on this solemn occasion.

A armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one has to back it up with his life.
Being an Aggie I can say that I have never run across another university where the camaraderie is greater. As the woman said, "...there are no strangers on this road...", and I've yet to meet another Aggie that I would call a stranger.
Kudos to those surrounding the church, loyalty is always powerful...

The WBC folks should learn cheerleading/gymnastics. Then they could get a few members to sneak through the sewers, and then vault their members over the wall (to be caught by the sneaking members).
Plus, a WBC cheer squad would be pretty cute! I wonder if it's seen as being unreasonably effeminate to be a male on a cheer squad? l0l
