    Heroes and zeroes: Love trumps hate in Marblehead
    By Tom Farmer
    Tuesday, June 28, 2005 - Updated: 05:13 AM EST

    Shunning the twisted rhetoric of a Kansas hate group, the town of Marblehead turned out yesterday to honor a fallen Green Beret in an outpouring of sympathy and patriotism not seen in decades in the historic seaside community.

    Amid tight security and a sea of American flags clutched by several thousand mourners along the funeral route from Marblehead's Old North Church, Army Staff Sgt. Christopher N. Piper was laid to rest in the veterans section of Waterside Cemetery. He joined other town residents who made the ultimate sacrifice dating back to the Spanish-American War.

    ``The (American) Revolution was fought here, and I think that is still very real to a lot of people here in Marblehead,'' Piper's brother Ernest said. ``(My brother) had a very deep commitment to service and a deep belief in what he was doing.''

    Christopher Piper, 43, who served for 10 years in the Marine Corps before joining the Army in 1995 and becoming an elite Green Beret, died June 16 in a Texas hospital from wounds he received in a roadside bombing in Afghanistan that also killed Capt. Charles D. Robinson and Staff Sgt. Leroy E. Alexander.

    The widows of Piper's fallen comrades attended yesterday's service, where Piper was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart.

    The funeral for Piper, whose death was the town's first combat casualty since the Vietnam War, was marred by the presence of four demonstrators from the Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church. They asserted the 9/11 attacks and American deaths in the war on terror are God's revenge on a nation tolerant of gays.

    Holding signs reading, ``Thank God for dead soldiers,'' ``God blew up the troops,'' and ``Fag body bags,'' the demonstrators chanted derisive anti-gay slogans and sang a derogatory version of ``God Bless America'' that opened with: ``God hates America, land of our fags.''

    They were surrounded by dozens of uniformed and plainclothes cops and blocked from the public by the Boston Police Department Mounted Unit, which strategically pointed the backs of their horses toward the group.

    Ben Cleary, who went to high school with Piper, tearfully screamed at the protesters while holding a large American flag.

    ``To have him defend our country the way he did and to do the things he's done is incredible and for them to distastefully show up like this and say all those things makes us outraged,'' Cleary said.

    The protesters were led out of town with a police escort shortly before the church service began and were quickly forgotten amid the flood of mourners who followed Piper's casket from the church on a horse-drawn caisson or watched solemnly along the funeral route.

    Ernest Piper said his family understands the protesters' constitutional right to free speech and that they have men like Christopher Piper to thank for it.

    ``Those that go to fight, fight for that right,'' he said ``So we are unfazed'' by the demonstrators.

    It's too bad that our rights don't include the right to punch one of these scumbags right in the puss!

    Unbelieveable...

    What a bunch of tube-sacks. Let them bury their loved one in peace. This is appaling, infuriating and sub-human.

    These protesters are in need of a world class ass-whooping.

    They actually call what they're doing a Love Crusade. It is just a slap in the face of this poor family. How could so called religious people do that to a man that served his country for 20 years? What is wrong with these people? Not everyone agrees with homosexuallity, fine. But to act out against it buy protesting the funeral of a hero is just horrible in so many ways.

    See, this is what I'm talking about.

    Me either, and I am pretty sure most Baptists would NOT agree with what they are doing. Not sure how they are even calling themselves Baptists.

    That's really crap. It's too bad when people like those protestors use something that is to honor someone and turn it into a stage to display their stupid thinking.
