unsure if little boys charles powell, 7, and his brother braden, 5, were sexually abused before their deaths (police found "incestual" images on their dad's puter.)

but imagine the kind of mind (man) who organizes a protest of the boys' funeral this way - and in the name of god? so glad an agreement was made at the final hour to prevent the scene. nonetheless, doesn't change their intentions. nor does it change the next death protest in a city near you.

I don't get it. What did they have to protest about?

And if they DID disrupt the funeral of those boys, I'd be more than willing to pay THE price. I don't understand why people have not been willing to do same at US Soldier's funerals where those freaks go.

westboro felt that the killing of these two boys was justice served, and god's punishment, for washington state passing a gay marriage bill.

no group in existence today enrages me more.

i hate them more than the 19 who killed my fellow manhattanites on 9.11.

Sad thing is they teach their kids this hatred, and bring them along on their protests and put them in harms way.

Purely for their safety, the kids should be taken away.

They were on 20/20 once, actually the daughter of one family that disowned her for refusing their hate teaching was, and they showed an incident where one of rltheir kids, maybe 10 or so was clipped in the head by a car mirror of a car that swerved toward them while they were protesting a funeral.

Where's child services in these cases?

They, the Phelps gang, were just in an area near me last week. They were protesting something at a local high school. Upon checking out several aspects of their travels and how they operate, a few things are clear. One, they package the protests with a well placed advance notice to local law enforcement and media. They also openly list the protest schedule on the church web page. They typically drive in one van, and plan a route that yields the most media air time.

In our recent visit, they cancelled, one of two stops, that was not planned out correctly, according to them. So, observers and media, last week counted no more than 7 to 9 active members of their travel group. They also have several attorney-members and are well versed in First Amendment features that they can exploite.

The local visit lasted about ten minutes, they got face time on all the tv stations, the counter demonstrators rallied several hundred. In the past they had legal folks on standby to enforce the notion of protest on public ground. My guess is that they present a easy target for various assaults and thus it is safe to say, some LE or private entity, monitors parts of their travel. So, any illegal act to harm or effort toimpede them, is a bad idea. If we balance the discussion they generate.we can view that as a good thing,for all. Otherwise, much like a pesky fly at a picnic, you are better off to ignore it, and continue having fun.

With that all said, there are positive ways to shield funerals and other public events from this type of free speech. The Patriot Guard Motorcycle honor guards, are a great example of response.

One positive fact about this, the Patriot guard Motorcycle group and others have joined in on this effort. Harley noise has found a good use smile.

Fred Phelps brainwashed most of the younger family members into his cult through relentless sadistic physical torture. Whipped his sons until they vomited and blacked out, etc. If you want the morbid details and aren't too strongly triggered by physical abuse, Google "Fred Phelps Addicted to Hate."
