Facebook Anger at Westboro Church protesting the girls’ funeral-Your Funeral Guy

11 Jan

On Monday several Facebook groups arose in Anger About the Westboro Baptist Church protesting the the 9 year old’s funeral who died in the Arizona Shooting on August 8th.

This is indeed sad, and the anger is justified.

Face book anger against the Westboro Baptist church at Arizona Funerals

At least three Facebook groups sprang to life Monday less than a day after an infamous church trumpeted plans to picket the funeral of a nine-year-old Tucson, Ariz., shooting victim.

Stop the Westboro Baptist Church” had collected more than 30,000 supporters by Monday afternoon; other sites added numbers steadily as word spread that the notorious Phelps family intended to turn up Thursday for Christina Green’s burial.

Green and five others were shot and killed during a rampage on Jan. 8 at a U.S. congresswoman’s open forum at an Arizona supermarket. The congresswoman, Gabrielle Giffords, was critically wounded and another 13 people were injured.

In a rambling, error-filled video, 81-year-old Fred Phelps, pastor of the Westboro Church in Topeka, Kansas, proclaimed, “Thank God for the violent shooter, one of your soldier heros (sic) in Tucson,” wrongly contending that the accused, Jared Loughner, had been a soldier in Afghanistan.

  1. This Westboro Baptist Church is quite honestly “not doing any good whatsover”.
    Disrespectful, rude and just plain ignorant.
    They are not connected to the real “God” but serving out some sinful duties.
