Westboro Baptist Church to Picket Fallen Soldier: Harlan

Postby FallenAngel » Mon Aug 19, 2013 2:14 pm

The owner/director of Anderson-Laws funeral home posted this on facebook. Does anyone know if it is true and if so is anything being planned to put a stop to it?

"Tommorrow our funeral home is assisting bringing home Staff SGT Ryan Austin home to be buried with his mother and grandmother at Fields Cemetery at Cawood. We have been informed the Westboro church plans on protesting this. I am asking on behalf of his family lets show Ryan's family our harlan county support. His funeral procesion will come from corbin on the bypass to Cawood. Graveside is tentative for 2 pm. He will be escorted by police and the Patriot Guard. Lets take a moment and honor this young and his family tomorrow."

Well we don't want them here, and they might want to research where they are coming to a little before they do show up.

It's true. I was going to post it as soon as I got back to the office.

Memorial of: Staff Sgt. Ryan Austin Tuesday, August 20th 2013, at 10:15 a.m. 1382 Cumberland Gap Parkway, Corbin, KY

Staff Sgt. Ryan Austin
Tuesday, August 20th 2013, at 10:15 a.m.
1382 Cumberland Gap Parkway, Corbin, KY
Staff Sgt. Austin lost his life – not in the heat of battle – but by other curious weapons from God’s armory. If you sign up to be a part of the military, you sign up to stand proud in God’s crosshairs for the cause of fags and whores. Soldiers die for WBC’s right to preach. To deny us our First Amendment rights is to declare to the world that American soldiers die in vain, and that America is a nation of sodomite hypocrites.
““Except the Lord build the house, They labor in vain that build it; Except the Lord keep the city, The watchman waketh but in vain.” (Psa. 127:1)
The Lord no longer builds the American house; nor does the Lord watch over and protect America. These soldiers are dying for the homosexual and other sins of America. God is now America’s enemy, and God Himself is fighting against America.
SODOMITES ABOUND: SOLDIERS DIE.

They are setting up in a area so their message reaches as many people as possible. They claim to do this in the name of GOD.

The worst thing that could happen is if they do show up that the ppl of Harlan meet them with violence or threats. That is exactly what they want and expect. That is how they make their money and fame. I in no way agree with or condone their ignorant, hateful, stupidity, but why would you want to give them exactly what they want?
There is no joy in this fallen soldier's family having to suffer even more at the hands of these monsters. But I truthfully feel the best way to handle them if they do show up is to counter them. Arrange a counter protest if you will. Shield the family from the hate and ignorance that these assholes will be spewing to the best of our ability. Then they cannot claim that their "freedoms" were infringed, and have no lawsuit to bring. And hopefully the poor family will not have to suffer moreso than they already have.

Just saw this posted on a friends FB! Good Job!

Just passed by Corbin Funeral Home and it looks packed. Got to send a shout out to the fire departments in and around Corbin for circling the perimeter of the parking lot with their fire trucks so no one could see those idiots from Westboro Baptist if they did show up. Didn't see any picketing, but that's not to say they won't show up between now and the burial. Prayer go out to his family during this difficult time.

I have been told that people in town who want to show support should line up on the sidewalk between Mack's and BP to show support. Try to be there by 1:15.

They are going to be at the Country Store on 119, at the Mall, and lined up along the road to Cawood also.
