This should not come as a surprise, of course. This is the same “church” that pickets the funerals of soldiers killed in combat; has a headline on its website that reads “Thank God for 12 more dead troops. We are praying for 12,000 more”; planned to picket the funerals of children murdered or perished in a house fire; sent a letter of praise to Saddam Hussein; and said the attacks on 9-11 were God’s way of “smiting *** America“.

As with all their other abhorrent behavior, we’re quite certain God is very pleased to have His name attached to their latest planned endeavor.

No funeral should be picketed, IMO.

Have any of these wackos ever been attacked while picketing funerals? My guess is a few of them don't make it out alive if they're picketing next to Penn Staters at JoePa's funeral.

They hide behind the first amendment and sue anyone that attacks them while picketing. Its all a scam.

I would love to see these idiots go to another country and try to harass people at a funeral....

A funeral should be off limits.
