    Seriously? You think a petition is going to stop these fools? Like they care. you could get everyone on the planet to sign that and they would still show up. What the freak is the point of it?

    If you are going to do something, do something that actually matters.

    And how exactly are you going to ‘stop’ them? Or does the petition also repeal the Constitution?

    The woman who made the announcement tweeted "@manstuffjoe Rebels mad cuz I used iPhone to tell you Steve Jobs is in hell.God created iPhone for that purpose! :)"

    I'm confused. She knows *entering her sick, twisted mind* God used Steve Jobs to create the iPhone, but she still thinks he's hellbound for "serving self, not God"? She really is psychotic.

    Oh, they've been stopped before, and they will be stopped again. Desperate times and all that. I most assuredly would do the same if they attempted to pull a stunt like that at a funeral for one of my loved ones.

    Dad gummit ~ when will these people get it, a gathering of people mourning a loved one, is not the place to protest. There is a view that the Bill of Rights has a spirit and intent, and these acts of protest belong somewhere else. It's an easy ticket to ride, it's a low-life that would try.

    What are you going to do with the petition? Present it to the Ca. politicians? Nail it on the door of the Church? E-mail it to the crazy Westboro people? If they don't respect the right to privacy of a grieving family of a fallen member of the Military what makes you think they would or should respect the funeral of the head of a corporation?
