Arizona Residents To Stop Westboro Church In Aftershock of AZ Massacre
The Westboro Baptist Church plans to protest the Funeral of a 9 year old girl who was shot and killed in the Arizona Massacre. These people are the bottom of the barrel. What kind of church preaches to do this? And what kind of feeble minded idiot follows along with this?
Arizona residents are locking arms to stop the Westboro Baptist Church from disrupting the funerals for victims of Saturday's shooting in Tucson, with bikers and others organizing a massive counter-protest and state lawmakers fast-tracking a bill to hamstring the group.
The Kansas-based Westboro church is notorious for showing up at the funerals of dead soldiers and other high-profile gatherings wielding anti-gay signs.
But when the church announced it would picket the funeral Thursday for the 9-year-old girl fatally shot over the weekend at a Tucson grocery store by a gunman who allegedly killed five others and injured 14 others attending a town-hall session by Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, Tucson- and Phoenix-area residents started organizing immediately.
They may not be able to stop them, but they plan on giving the grieving family as much of a buffer as possible between the protesters and the service.
Personally I feel that anyone who partakes in this kind of lunacy is spitting in the face of the teachings of Christianity and to associate themselves with the Christian faith is an insult.
