OK so this "group" may be coming to your area. I know that there are groups that get together to try to block the family from having to see them exercising their freedom of speech at their childs funeral by wearing large angel wings...I know I will be first in line to get a pair if they come to Texas.

Protesters from the Westboro Baptist Church at an Owasso serviceman's funeral earlier this year.Protesters from a Kansas church who have gained attention through picketing at the funerals of fallen military servicemen are now turning their attention to protesting at the funerals of children to retaliate for their tires being slashed at a McAlester serviceman's funeral last week.

Members of Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas will be in Burneyville in southern Oklahoma today. That's where a funeral is being held for eight-year-old Jalen Wolfe, who died in an accident at the Love County Fairgrounds last week.

On the WBC website, members say they are protesting because of the vandalism they suffered over the weekend while protesting at the funeral of McAlester serviceman Jason McCluskey.

They say quote "the Lord curses them by killing Oklahoma's children and casting them into Hell." Furthermore, their website reads "Thank God For More Dead Children In Oklahoma!".

In addition to today's funeral, the protestors are scheduled to return to Owasso Thursday to protest at the funeral of Melissa Hanslovan of Collinsville, who died Sunday after a one-car crash over the weekend.

The protesters were in Owasso earlier this year for the funeral of Specialist Andrew Looney. They say soldiers are being killed because of God's revenge against America for its tolerance of homosexuality.

Disgusting. I'm surprised that slashed tires is the only thing that's happened to them. One of these days, some grieving parent is going to get a gun and go after them.

These people sicken me to no end. The only thing that makes me feel better about it all is to know that THEY are the ones that are going to end up in the firey hell they condemn others to and it'll sure be a rude awakening...

I am not one who believes in violence but God forbid something happened to one of my children and these scum showed up at there funeral I would be in jail and then we could be picketing their funeral because they would be getting buried too.

WOW. Really, if a protester showed up at my child's funeral they wouldn't have to worry about guns, I would rip their f****** heads off with my hands.

I am an agnostic. These people make me hope that there is a God so that when their time comes, they will be judged.

I can't believe this. These people are totally unChristian in every sense of the word.
