These Westboro pukes believe in the rapture, so let's help them disappear from the face of the earth and everyone wins.

Best thing to do is ignore these idiots totally. Don't even look at them and if you have to walk around them to go by. Walk right through them.

There isn't 1 person in essex county that will convict anyone for assaulting any of these scum bags and their little lawsuits won't go anywhere in that town either. Hammer away people!!!

Maybe they researched how people in small towns stand up for each other and are having second thoughts about showing up

I can't believe these morons are PROTESTING a SOLDIERS funeral. They may think he's an enemy of god but I'm not too sure if its not the other way around. Why are they doing this?

I feel very bad for the family of SS Vennes. It is bad enough living with the shock and grief of losing a loved one in combat without having to worry about people protesting his service to his country. The Westboro people and people like them are too ignorant to realize that if it were not for SS Vennes and the others in our armed services, they would not have the freedom to protest.

Very well said Walt. I hope they don't show or cause a scene. The family does not need that at this time.

For my way of thinking, we all were very fortunate these people did not show up at the funeral for our fallen hero SS. Dain Venne.

We were able to focus on the reason we were assembled and to allow Dain's family and friends to continue their grieving process. The people assembled were allowed to mourn in their own way as the tributes continued up to and including his final resting place.

Those protesters were also lucky they didn't show up and create a disturbance. From what I have read, their main reason to attend these very private functions is to secure media coverage and further their bizarre message. They finance the jaunts by suing people who react badly to their hatred filled comments. Standing side-by-side with so many of our community neighbors, I'm not sure the "messengers of hate" has ever encountered such a strong patriotic group of family. I am so happy they didn't show because these "messengers of hate" are not worthy of any type of coverage or physical attacks. That is what they want and encourage.

We were blessed for a quite serene final tribute.

"Messenger of hate" is a strong description and mayby not warranted. If you haven't met them in person, you aren't qualified to give an opinion other than what someone else has put in your mind.
To disrupt a serveman's funeral is not anything I would tolerate, even if they were silently carrying signs 500 feet away. The best way to counter the people that would disrespect the soldier and his family, is real simple....you open up a can of whoopa$$ on them. Bloody them up a little bit and show them how country folks are more action and less talk. Somehow leaving a few teeth on the sidewalk, grants a lasting memory. I guarantee they would be reluctant to go to the next one. Keep in mind, there are Veterans among you just like me that won't tolerate it either.

"Messenger of hate" is exactly what they are. I don't need to meet them in person, I have researched their "church", watched their interviews and read their signs. Someone else hasn't put any thing in my mind. WBC, do America a huge favor and JUST DRINK THE KOOL AID ALREADY!!!

Exactly the response I would expect from a practicing homosexual. Funny how a differing opinion other than that of the gays and lesbians, is always considered "Discrimination, intolerance and hate speech."

While I would not waste my time researching Westboro, their actions speak for themselves. This young man's family should not even have had to entertain a thought of someone protesting his service to our country. Since our son requested to be buried at Arlington before his deployment, we did not have to concern ourselves with the likes of Westboro. He was treated as a hero and the military conducted a beautiful service. I can not say enough good about the Army's casualty assistant program as I am sure the sgt.s family will discover if they have not already.
