These are some misguided folks. I guess they have the right to protest anything, but my hopes for these miserable clowns are not printable. What kind of a Christian would do this? Surely not ones versed in Christian life and living as taught in the Bible. Rather than berating him as a representative of a government and society totally divorced from Biblical morals, in the Gospel of Luke Christ extolls the Centurion as the epitome of faith ("in all Israel I have found no one with a faith such as this") and heals his servant. I pray that these soldier's families have one last chance to reflect on their soldiers sacrifice in peace and that these fools are squashed by the weight of an outraged public. From the Army Times: The Associated Press Posted : Wednesday Apr 15, 2009 6:42:31 EDT KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City suburb of Gladstone temporarily has been barred from enforcing a funeral protest ordinance. The Kansas City Star is reporting on its Web site that a Kansas City federal judge issued the ruling Tuesday. Shirley L. Phelps-Roper of the Westboro Baptist Church requested the order pending a ruling on the constitutionality of the city’s ordinance that prohibits protests at soldiers’ funerals. The Topeka, Kan., church has protested at military funerals nationwide because it believes U.S. troop deaths are punishment for the nation’s tolerance of homosexuality. Legal challenges also have been filed over a similar Missouri law as well as funeral protest ordinances in St. Joseph and Smithville. But the Smithville suit was dropped last month when the city repealed its funeral picketing ordinance.
