If you had to sit down and write a list of unchristian organizations in these United States, Westboro Baptist "Church" would have to be at the top of the list. What a vile collection of filth they are; protesting at the funerals of our fallen heroes; adding to the grief of the already anguished family and friends.
They'll be down the road from us next week. And though I didn't have the honor of knowing Lance Cpl. Terry E. Honeycutt Jr, I can't imagine being anywhere but at his funeral this Monday.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO BLOCK PROTESTERS
New Life Church would like to request the presence of as many people as possible to line the front of the New Life Church property and the front grassy area with participants carrying American flags on Monday before and after the funeral (500 American flags will be provided). Parking assistance would also be appreciated for the funeral on Monday. If interested in participating with these requests on Monday, please note the following schedule:
Monday, November 15th
8:30 a.m. Participants meet in the Garage Church Building for refreshments and instructions.
9:00 a.m. Proceed to assigned outside areas.
10:00 a.m. Funeral will hopefully be televised in the Garage Church Building for interested participants.
After Funeral: Participants remaining will line the church exit route waving American flags.
This is in honor of Lance Corporal Terry Honeycutt. Please maintain dignity and show respect!
