WBC to picket local marine's funeral; this blogger is furious

Well, the Winter Olympics are over.  The US had a spectacular games; 37 medals in total were won, beating the record set by the Germans at the 2002 Salt Lake games, picking up our first ever medals in nordic combined and our first bobsled gold since 1948.  Now its time to get ready for the 2012 Summer Games in London.  Expect to see results from those games here too.

But I digress, since that is not the purpose of this post.

Most folks I know have probably heard of the hate brigade know as Westboro Baptist Church.  They've become quite famous for picketing the funerals of soldiers killed in the line of duty with signs reading things like "Thank God for IEDs" and "America is Doomed", viewing their deaths as divine retribution on a cursed nation.

Well, the group is now spreading their sunshine... to my city.

The group plans to picket several local sites in the Hampton Roads area, including Landstown High School (I'm sure the students going to class will LOVE seeing that in the morning) and the Virginia Beach Convention Center.  They also plan to picket a local Chesapeake marine's funeral all the way to Arlington National Cemetary. 

They had this to say about the man on their website.
“The flag is a piece of cloth; it can not save your souls from the fires of HELL! You had better listen to us, or you will join Kielin T. Dunn in the Lake of Fire! He ignorantly sinned away his day of Grace and brought WRATH down on his head! You all put Antichrist Beast Obama in the White House, and there is NO HOPE! America is Doomed! Amen.”

As the title says, this blogger is furious.

How dare they even show their faces here.  How dare they harass those mourning the loss of their beloved marine with their evil messages.  How dare they disturb this city with their hate.

Please pray for these hateful souls.  Only God can lift the veil of hate that surrounds their hearts.

Pax Christi.

  1. Life is but a Stopping Place
    Life is but a stopping place,
    A pause in what's to be,
    A resting place along the road,
    to sweet eternity.
    We all have different journeys,
    Different paths along the way,
    We all were meant to learn some things,
    but never meant to stay...
    Our destination is a place,
    Far greater than we know.
    For some the journey's quicker,
    For some the journey's slow.
    And when the journey finally ends,
    We'll claim a great reward,
    And find an everlasting peace,
    Together with the lord
