God hates America and is killing our troops

From the Aiken Standard:

>>>Westboro Baptist Church, based in Topeka, Kan., sent a press release with the time and place of the funeral of Staff Sgt. Willie Harley, 48, of Aiken, stating church members will be there to protest. The church also claims it will be present at the funeral of Spc. Luther Rabon, 32, of Lexington, which is scheduled for Saturday.<<<

>>>Both men were killed on Oct. 1 when an improvised explosive device (IED) detonated under their vehicle in Afghanistan. Both Harley and Rabon were part of the 1221st Engineer Clearance Company, based in Graniteville. The unit of around 100 men and women was deployed July 9 and is scheduled to come home next summer.

The press release states the protest is an effort to spread Westboro's message of why "God hates America and is killing our troops in his wrath," claiming that U.S. soldiers are dying for this country's various "sins." Westboro church members attempt to go to any military funeral to hold their demonstrations - the news release listed 13 military funerals scheduled around the country where they plan to protest.<<<

These idiots from Westboro Baptist Church, Topeka, Kansas are not even worth an answer so I won't. God help the families of the fallen warriors, the flowers of the forest.

Americans are in love with their prisons and endless wars. I am glad that these cowardly troops died like the thrash that they are.

US troops promote fascism and the prison- war industrial complex.
