Silence the Westboro Church

May 18, 2013 

The members of the Westboro Baptist Church are a bunch of the lowest form of humans. To openly go to funerals of fallen heros to degrade them is worse than disgusting. They do this because they can.

These same heroes gave their lives for these people to be able to hurt the decreased's loved ones at the worst way possible. The ACLU hides behind our freedom of speech to let this atrocity happen.

They should be held accountable for the disrespect and filthy language they spew out. They even bring young children with them to learn a terrible lesson by watching their vile behavior.They need to be stopped legally.

I am sure the Baptist faith does not teach or condone these hurts that they continue to put on grieving military families There should be a very loud outcry from others of their faith and find a way to stop them.

The grieving families who have been targeted have our family's deepest sympathy and prayers. We, too, have active military in our family.
