I would be willing to bet that they will have came to the wrong little town to practice their disgusting craft this time. They will probably leave bruised and bloodied, and should too. And also, he was a Marine not a Soldier and Marines are very particular about being referred to as 'Soldiers' and whoever wrote this should change it because believe me it is almost offensive to them.

As to the Marine and Soldier thing, the term 'Soldier/s' referes to the Army and a 'Marine' referes to the Marine Corps and they are very particular about it.

All they are is a scam using the church tax exemptions to further their profitability of inflaming the public and local governments to sue for any amount of money they can get their hands on. I think the federal government needs to create a new law against fraudulent use of the name church. They are all very successful lawyers and will never single a person out, thus always using blanket statements and just making eye contact. As soon as the police dont let them protest or you punch them then everyone in the vicinity gets a lawsuit for civil rights and anything else. It has to be the one of the most outrageous and successful scam schemes ever thought of because they work the system perfect.

well sorry to rant. The scum really touches home with me as well.

Simple assault comes with a slap on the wrist for first-offenders; anyone want to take one for Lance Corporal Jonathan S. Long. If he can die for us, surely we can pay $100 fine and spend a few days in jail for him.

I'm a firm believer in our constitution, more specifically to this thread, our 1st Amendment rights. However, there was a thing long ago called decency. For example, say boy1 engages his 1st Amendment to father1; boy1 tells father1 all the perverse sexual things he would like to do to father1's daughter. Though boy1 inacts his 1st Amendment right, father1 has an obligation to his daughter to stomp a mud-hole in boy1's a$$. These are religious fanatics; they won't quit until someone makes them, it may sound childish but you'd be surprised of the results that come of smacking somoene in the mouth.

They make their money by sueing citys for not protecting them.

The Patriot Riders will be there to protect the family from WBC; I don't think they'll get very far in this town.

If they concerned themselves more with fighting instead of someone inaccurately referring to them as soldiers, we might have not been defeated by the North Vietnamese.
Seems kind of anal if you ask me. However, homos are now not required to tell or be asked, so I guess they all keep each other warm when stationed in cold locations.


With all do respect; when you've done what you've done to earn the title marine, you would understand. Just like I'm a soldier. Its a mutual respect thing. Just like when you're a "soldier", being called a "private" is the quickest way to get smacked in the face. Now with that being said, call a Marine a soldier to their face. But despite that, pgr will be there. Along with friends and family. 90% of law enforcement is prior service.... and troopers were there today. So im pretty sure law enforcement will deny any wbc cocksuckers near jons funeral. Rip buddy.

I wouldn't hesitate to smack 1 of these fake god freaks right in the mouth. As many country boys and gun toters we have in this state I'm sure we could set up a lil perimeter to keep this poor boys fammily from seeing this non sense. Wv is an open carry state after all so let them 9s and 45s shine

Patriot Guard Riders are already on top of it. They set barriers with their motorcycles while they fly the American flag on their bikes.

I'm extremely pissed after reading up on these people. I don't keep up with the news very often. I don't understand how they can hold up signs that say things like "Thank God for dead soldiers" and "Thank God for IED's", and still be among the living. I'm a firm believer in our first amendment rights, but shit like this should be grounds for a date with a firing squad!!!

They take their lawsuits to the supreme court. They're lame as he11 and I hope the patriot riders shut them down. Their website says they are protesting in Kansas today so I think it was just about promoting them.
