I can't even put into words how rediculous this is, the ignorance blows my mind. And his followers have to be brain washed, it also blew my mind that there a children holding up signs in this protest, i don't want to know how they are going to be as adults! If it weren't for our men and women in our armed forces (homosexual and straight) those idiots wouldn't be able to protest. Also, how Christian like is it to do something so hateful! And if it is so terrible in the United States, go somewhere else.It scares me, horrifies me, and saddens me that people would ever dream to do something this disrespectful and hateful. So where does freedom of speech turn to a hate crime? Protesting does not make the world a better place and it doesn't change a dang thing, why not do something productive with your time, like volunteer somewhere. I guess I'll never understand. But God will judge them.

I seen this report on the 5:00 report today and I have to say the protesters are wrong. If you want to protest..fine.. Do it in Washington DC on the steps of the white house or the capital, Do it in front of the offices of your representatives. There's a time a place for everything, However, you just don't disrespect a family who has lost a loved one. You don't make plans to "crash" a funeral. Thats just plain WRONG. After seeing this report today, I wouldn't support anything this group was involved with. They obviously don't have any respect for others but want people to respect them enough to hear their say?? Good luck with that because I, for one, am done listening and think they are a group of disrespectful nuts looking to cause trouble and thats the last thing we need in this Nation today.

My brother is a Marine and I feared for his life everyday he was in Iraq. However, we are doing right by supporting Israel. The Bible says that those who turn against Isreal will be defeated. It is not a Christian act to protest at a funeral for a man who defended our country and aided God's people. The family should not suffer even more because someone is angry with the people in this country or the government. What if that were your brother or son?

I would like to comment about those "christians" that protests funerals of veterans but it will just be a bunch of**********s

It surprises me that in an emotional time like a funeral, one of them hasn't been killed or beaten.

If these people are christians, then the woods are full of them. I hope the US Supreme Court upholds the money award for the father and I hope that church and I use that word loosely and all it members lose EVERYTHING they have. I would love to see them all homeless. I would say what I would do to them but I'll leave it up to God to judge them. As one of the comments I read, its a wonder that somebody hasn't beat the crap or worse to one of them, especially that woman who was on the news. I'd love to get my hands on her!
