Bad enough this soldier died, now his family is going to be subjected to these crazy people? How utterly sickening.

If the family requests it, the Patriot Guards will be there to provide a flag barrier and motorcycle escort.

I believe they already have requested it (thankfully). I'm a native of Pittston and know the people of that town like the back of my hand; they are SEVERELY underestimating the level of patriotism people in Tomato Town have. I also know many from Scranton and Wilkes-Barre who plan to come in to lash out at WBC as well. I don't care about your religious stances upon homosexuality. A family only gets ONE OPPORTUNITY to permanently say good-bye to the person they love who valiantly gave his or her life to preserve our own civil liberties, and WBC serves as nothing but an IMPEDIMENT to that being a fond final memory.

If anyone needs directions Pittston is Exit 175 off of I-81. Turn off of Highway 315 at Oak Street (Wachovia Bank on corner). Follow Oak through Pittston Township to the end and make a right on U.S. Route 11 (Pittston Bypass). Turn left at the next light onto William Street (Donut Connection ahead of you). The church will be about a mile down on your left after you turn.

I am so disgusted by this. I think this is one thing EVERYONE can agree on - this "church" is the epitome of immorality.

Knowing the veterans organizations in the valley, I'm sure those wackos masquerading as religious zealots will drowned out, out protested, and quietly blocked from any meaningful view of anything whatsoever. Either that or the vets organizations lost some of their mojo from years ago.

They're scumbags....but they are not RIGHT WING. The bottom line is that they're just lunatics, whatever "wing" you want to put them on. I know you couldn't resist using this to take a shot at conservatives by lumping this group in with them, but you're wrong.

Maybe a local trucking company should go down there and pull up a couple of big rigs to block these idiots from view at the funeral.

Even when Christ was taken down from the cross, neither the Jews nor the Romans interfered with His burial... I would LOVE to be a fly on the wall when these *%$#@%#s meet their Maker!!!

Oh & GP, you KNOW part of your post should have been written in the "Politics" forum & mine should be posted in the "Religion" forum...

OOOOOOooooo....we're in twubble!!!!

I think the Westboro group may be one group that EVERYONE on this forum can rally against!
BTW this is not a "gay thing" or a "Christian" thing. Their are people working right now to have there tax exept status as a church revoked - because WBC is a HATE GROUP pure and simple, not a church.
This is NOT a Right-Wing group as some people group nor a Left wing group -in case any one thaought that if they were not one that they were the other. Its of the "Lunatic Wings" of the american sociopolitical scene. Like the Klan thay cloake themselves in religion and the cross.

BTW, The fallen soldier was a boyhood friend of someone we have met since moving to Wilkes-Barre.

I cannot believe that there are people in this world who would go out of their way to turn what should be a solomn and dignified time for his family and friends into at three ring circus!
