Westboro Baptist...has protested or is planning protests of other public funerals of soldiers from Michigan, Alabama, Minnesota, Virginia and Colorado. A protest is planned for July 11 at Dover Air Force Base, the military base where war dead are transported before being sent on to their home states.No, they're not gay soldiers. The explanation is twisted, yet fascinating in its utter lack of coherence.
A flier on the Web site of Pastor Fred Phelps' Westboro Baptist Church claims God killed Cpl. Carrie French with an improvised explosive device in retaliation against the United States for a bombing at Phelps' church six years ago.They're picking a fight with the U.S. military at the funerals of dead soldiers?!??! Even for them that is beyond craaaazy.
"Our attitude toward what's happening with the war is the Lord is punishing this evil nation for abandoning all moral imperatives that are worth a dime," Phelps said.
I really think it's time for the nice men with the special long-armed jackets to come and take Fred and his whole nutty family away.
