Jerks heckle funeral

BREITBART.COM - : "Five women sang and danced as they held up signs saying 'thank God for dead soldiers' at the funeral of an army sergeant who was killed by an Iraqi bomb.

For them, it was the perfect way to spread God's word: America was being punished for tolerating homosexuality.

For the hundreds of flag waving bikers who came to this small town in Michigan Saturday to shield the soldier's family, it was disgusting.

'That could be me in that church,' said Jackie Sandler whose son Keith is currently serving his second tour of duty in Iraq.

The fringe group of fire and brimstone Baptists from Kansas has been courting controversy for more than 15 years, traveling the country with their hateful signs and slogans.

The Westboro Baptist Church first gained national notoriety when they picked the funeral of Matthew Shepard, a Wyoming student who was murdered in 1998 for being gay."

That is most definatly not right...
Sick, making a funeral a politcal stunting ground. Lets see who else does this... Democrat party? Welstone memorial? Correta King funeral? Which of these three has more significance? Which will be recieving more coverage?
