I usually don't post negative topics on forums, but this news report is very disturbing:

 http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/12/09/elizabeth-edwards-funeral-westboro-baptist-church_n_794333.html

If you are anywhere near Raleigh, NC, please help prevent them from dishonoring a fellow warrior.  I heard of communities coming together at events to barricade against this particular hate-group.

I have no political/religious affiliation.  I just want people to be treated with dignity.

    Gripes!  This is a sick, sick, so called "Church"!  I believe in freedom of speech but these people have to be stopped.  There must be something illegal about what they are doing.  They are the reason so many people want to hve nothing to do with a Church.  Talk about Hell!  Any of their members who involve themselves in despicable crap like this are surely making their way to a special "Hell"!

    Dear Westboro Baptist Church:

    What part of "Love Thy Neighbor" don't you understand? 

    Sincerely yours,

    G-d

    That being said....

    Mrs. Edwards funeral is sure to be attended by many high ranking politicians. I am sure there will be a tremendous (and effective) security presence. Although the group probably can't be banned, I am sure there presence can be minimized. 

     Let's not dignify this hateful entity with further publicity.....

    the mind boggles.  thanks for the reminder on why I was never very good at being a churchgoer even before I was a Buddhist.

    On one hand I agree with EnglishMajor in that giving them more press is not a good thing.  On the other, sometimes you have to stand up and speak out against people like this.  And maybe this is one of those times.

    Wow, that's pretty sick. I am a firm believer though in "what goes around comes around." They'll get theirs... eventually. Beyond that I agree that their actions do not dignify a response, as it only generates more publicity, which is exactly what they want. Sometimes I wonder why news organizations don't seem to get that.

    How disgusting are they?!  They've actually fashioned their own rageful hate mongering "God" to persecute anyone who does not go along with their sick form of worship. Evil people in the world to even talk about this family this way as they endure the loss of her.  To them I say God is Love

    I just read about this online.  What is happening to our world?
    I hope they are not able to get near the building...

    This is so unfair to her and her family.

    I saw the story earlier and was going to post a thread on it.  This is wrong on so many levels.  They're only doing it because of the expected heavy press coverage :(

    I'm a member of the Patriot Guard and we ride out on our Harleys (by invitation from the bereaving family) and try to form a barrier between these jerks and the family of the fallen soldier.  I can't believe their gall to carry signs and protest against fallen soldiers and now to protest at Mrs. Edward's service....I'm absolutely disgusted!  There's gotta be a special kind of hell waiting for them.

    Well ignoring bullies either makes them go away or makes them so big that they destroy themselves.  I predict one day they'll implode inward and save the rest of us the trouble of dealing with their nonsense.  Either way we'll be done with them.

    Good for you Puppet! We had a young soldier from our town killed in  Iraq. Those sick, horrible picketed his funeral; Patriot Guard showed up & formed a barrier between the picketers and the mourners. THEY made me proud of America and you all should be thanked for the great service you do for our country. The Patriot Guard was also at the airport to send off and welcome home World War II veteran's (including my dad) when they took an Honor Flight to Washington, DC to see their memorial......very moving and impressive. And that hate group is a 'church' in the same way that 'hell' would be a nice tropical vacation..........
