    Mourners Enraged By Anti-Gay Protests At Soldiers' Funerals
    Preacher Says Soldiers Defend Country That Harbors Gays

    POSTED: 10:57 am EDT August 29, 2005
    UPDATED: 2:38 pm EDT August 29, 2005

    SMYRNA, Tenn. -- Members of a church say God is punishing American soldiers for defending a country that harbors gays, and they brought their anti-gay message to the funerals Saturday of two Tennessee soldiers killed in Iraq.

    The church members were met with scorn from local residents. They chased the church members cars' down a highway, waving flags and screaming "God bless America."

    "My husband is over there, so I'm here to show my support," 41-year-old Connie Ditmore said as she waved and American flag and as tears came to her eyes. "To do this at a funeral is disrespectful of a family, no matter what your beliefs are."

    The Rev. Fred Phelps, founder of Westboro Baptist Church in, Topeka, Kan., contends that American soldiers are being killed in Iraq as vengeance from God for protecting a country that harbors gays. The church, which is not affiliated with a larger denomination, is made up mostly of Phelps' children, grandchildren and in-laws.

    The church members carried signs and shouted things such as "God hates fags" and "God hates you."

    About 10 church members protested near Smyrna United Methodist Church and nearly 20 stood outside the National Guard Armory in Ashland City. Members have demonstrated at other soldier funerals across the nation.

    The funerals were for Staff Sgt. Asbury Fred Hawn II, 35, in Smyrna and Spc. Gary Reese Jr., 22, in Ashland City. Both were members of the Tennessee National Guard.

    Hundreds of Smyrna and Ashland City residents and families of other soldiers turned out at both sites to counter the message the Westboro Baptist members brought.

    So many counterdemonstrators were gathered in Ashland City that police, sheriff's deputies and state troopers were brought in to control traffic and protect the protesters.

    The church members held protesting permits, and counterprotesters in Smyrna turned their backs to Westboro Baptist members until time expired on the protest permits.

    "If they were protesting the government, I might even join them," Danny Cotton, 56, said amid cries of "get out of our town" and "get out of our country."

    "But for them to come during the worst time for this family - it's just wrong."

    F*d up.

    So much for organized religion. What kind of religion teaches people to judge everyone else like that, and to disrespect the family of a fallen soldier who died to protect these a-holes and their g/d free speech?? That's not religion.

    Truly sickening.

    That is sickening. If I were there, I think I would be jailed for what I would do to those assholes.

    These jackoffs have been doing this for months. I think there have been a few other threads about it. How people can act this way is disgusting beyond words.

    I was thinking along the lines of each of us saving our own urine in milk containers for a short period of time.

    When these fuck-sticks show up again, we should embrace them with a nice refreshing "golden shower".

    Yes, it's a disgusting notion, yet they drew first blood, and one at times must fight fire with fire.

    Repulsive behavior.

    I totally agree Chef, Repulsive indeed. I think those cops should have just let the counterdemonstrators have thier way with these cowardly homophobes instead of protecting them, maye then they'll get the hint that they need to find another way to be media whores.

    Nice "church" by the way

    So the First Amendment only applies to the words we find tasteful or credible?

    I think these people are total morons, too. However, they were not acting illegally. Free speech means even assholes get to shout from the rooftops.

    Never said that at all....I guess you didn't pick up on the overexaggeration of solutions goin on here....

    Like with Chef, I don't think he is REALLY gonna piss in milk containers and throw it....then again, anything is possible with Chef.

    It's more about what we'd LIKE to do, rather than what can actually be done.

    The cops have to do their job even if it means protecting scumbags like this.

    I'm not saying the wackos don't have the right to protest, of course they do as long as they do it legally.

    Some one forgot to tell him, that Jesus LOVES everyone. Being gay may be sinful, but no one is without sin. What a horrible thing to do. Love people hate sin.

    Do not go there.

    Free Speech does not mean yelling "Fire" in a crowded theater, when no threat exists.

    What about the noble notion of being able to mourn one's dead? Since when did a cemetary become a forum to exercise free speech?

    Citing free speech, what if someone said:" I cannot wait to shoot one of these fuck-stains in the forehead, then laugh out loudly and proclaim: Ha-ha, one of your "enlightened" followers of your sick parish got shot in the land of homo's!...When's the funeral, and where?"

    These people are not opining freedom of speech, they are exalting hatred, in a most heinous(sp) and deplorable way.

    Or is it ok for a group of pedophiles to hang out on your sidewalk during your daughters 8th birthday party, citing free speech?

    "Up with pedophilia!" would/could be a marching cry, is anyone willing to defend that?

    It's called "human decency". If it's concept escapes one, more is the pity.
