View Full Version : Good news from the US

A federal jury in Baltimore, Maryland, Wednesday awarded $10.9 million to a father of a Marine whose funeral was picketed by members of a fundamentalist church carrying signs blaming soldiers' deaths on America's tolerance of homosexuals.

Before launching their protests at the funerals of American troops killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, they routinely picketed the funerals of gay people and those who died of AIDS.

Phelps and his followers also picketed the February 2006 funeral of Coretta Scott King, widow of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., because of her support for gay rights.

Several states have implemented laws about funeral protests and Congress has passed a law barring protests at federal cemeteries.

I don't think lawsuits will stop them. These bozos won't quit till they are in jail...

Preferrably sharing a cell with a large homosexual sex addicted man with dubious morals.

Yeah, I saw that too. How could those people possibly think they are doing the will of God? Way to share your faith! Picket a funeral...dispicable and shameful.
