    Residents of Missouri Town Block Protesters From Picketing Soldier's Funeral - FoxNews.com

    "Citing their First Amendment right to protest, Phelps' followers say they use funerals as an “available public platform” to “deliver the message that there is a consequence for sin.” Phelps is openly opposed to homosexuality and all government policies that he says supports homosexuals.

    "We got everybody here early so we could take up all the parking spots," Rebecca Rooney of Weston, Mo., told Fox4kc.com. "We did that so Mr. Phelps wouldn't have a contingency that was really close."

    "I'm glad they left, but I'm sad they came," she said."

    I would like to see a group of 100 Anti-Phelps demonstrators with huge pieces of cardboard follow the WBC people around the country, and when they gather with their God Hates Fags signs, the counter demonstrators would encircle them in a ring of people 5 deep and hold up their pieces of cardboard.

    You know what would be horrible..... If when it comes time for his funeral, people show up with signs for that one too. Thousands of them. All variations of "Gd hates Blaspheming jerkasses."

    I'd like to see 10,000 Americans do that. And sing, really loudly, to drown out their hate. See, what the WBC do - that is hate. Voicing your concern about very real gut reactions to seeing Muslims in traditional 'garb' on planes, criticizing a few of the 9/11 families, voicing your opinion of our political 'leaders'.... that isn't hate. I wish people would see the vast difference.

    I thought the problem was that these guys were getting TOO much media attention.
