Well, OK, if they REALLY got their due, they would be run over by a bus driven by a Gay soldier, but, at least they had their asses handed to them!
Daily Mail) — A reviled US church whose members protest at funerals of soldiers killed in Afghanistan was blocked from a town by patriotic locals. Westboro Baptist Church supporters had planned to picket the funeral of Sergeant Charles Sadell at his hometown in Weston, Missouri. But the callous protesters – led by controversial pastor Fred Phelps – fled the 2,000-population town when hundreds of flag-waving residents blocked routes leading its funeral home. Using a human chain and huge flags, they prevented relatives of the father-of-two from seeing protesters who bizarrely claim they use funerals to protest against ‘the consequences of sin’.
Turning up early to fill all available parking spaces, they forced the churches members to abandon their protest and leave.
‘We got everybody here early so we could take up all the parking spots,’ Resistance organiser Rebecca Rooney said. ‘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’m glad the family didn’t have to see them.’
Sergeant Sadell, who leaves behind a wife and two sons, was stationed in the Arif Kala region of Afghanistan when his unit was ambushed on October 5. Five soldiers were killed in the attack and Sadell was badly injured and brought back to a US hospital. However, the 34-year-old died from his injuries on October 24.
Too bad there Phelps! Now do the world a favor and take a long walk off a short cliff!
