These Baptist Need A Drink

Like perhaps a "hot cup of shut the hell up!"
I have recently read in a local paper that Westboro Baptist Church is planning a protest of Sgt First Class Stephen J. Wright of Talladega, Alabama. I am consoled that the Patriot Guard Riders, a group familiar with WBC, is marshalling to shield the family from the hateful sloganeers. The family,wisely perhaps, seems to closely guard any timeline for their memorial plans. I suspect that the burial will be done at a sudden time without much press coverage. It will be sad if a U.S. soldier must be sneaked away for burial but I can see the wisdom of telling as few as possible. And I am grateful for Patriot Guard Riders mission of respect.

These WBC people will bring judgement upon themselves. Some of my coworkers are the bugle players at some military funerals, and have had to deal with those... (sorry, my vocabulary isn't strong enough to describe them.)

Westboro Baptist Church members came to Saint Joseph, Missouri to protest a military funeral last August. Since then our city council has past an ordinance banning funeral protest. They returned recently to protest the ban. I've posted a couple of messages about it. Now I hear our state law makers are working on legislation out lawing these protest. I suppose we will be hearing more from the church members. I can tell you that they have a different God than I do. Theirs teaches them to hate anything they disagree with. I was taught to hate the sin and to try to help the sinner.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

God Bless The Patriot Guard Riders. I have posted a message about the Missouri State Legislation that would stop the funeral protest.

That's seem reasonable, unlike this so called church.
