That is disgusting, once again religion shows itself to be pretty useless and out of place in modern day society

These guys are NOT Christians, they celebrate a corruption of Christianity in the same way Osama Bin Laden celebrates a corruption of Islam.
Absolutely!

"HeathLedger thought it was great fun defying God Almighty and His plain word; to wit: God Hates ****! & Fag-Enablers! Ergo, God hates the sordid, tacky bucket of slime seasoned with vomit known as 'Brokeback Mountain' - and He hates all persons having anything whatsoever to do with it."


Does that not just go against the whole love thy neighbour part of christianity. And I'm pretty sure God didn't say 'yeh btw I hate that tacky bucket of slime seasoned with vomit'

I actually can't believe that. It actually really angers me. Grrrrrrrrrr. I'm stopping myself now before I go off on a major rant!

That's absolutely awful. People will want to remember his funeral as being a time to say a final goodbye, it should not be tarnished by a group of mis-informed idiots. I a). hope they see sense and don't follow through with the 'demonstration' and b). if they do, I hope to God his daughter isn't there. Imagine what the distress it would not only cause his family but also his young daughter.

I hate them so much. They're just clueless and they brainwash their children. I remember watching them on Jeremy Kyle (I was ill OK!? lol) and I had to turn it off in the end because I got so angry.

They should be arrested. But as long as they're so many metres away from the funeral then they don't get in trouble. It's pathetic.

They're highly unlikely to see sense. They've picketed people before, even returning US soldiers' funerals. They'd even picket their own family's funerals - it essentially is the Phelps family - if they got any dumber.

No, it's free speech - and the grand patriarch, Fred, of the Phelps family has pretty much got exactly how far they are allowed to go in protest down to a tee. The only way to rid the world of the Phelps is to ignore them and/or make fun of them - which, incidentally, is what Michael Moore did for the lulz.

EDIT: We should send them gay porn in protest over their protests.
I was just thinking the same thing.

It's truly disgusting (them being psychos, not the gay porn, er well, oh you know what I mean).

Agreed. The WBC have nothing much in common with the vast majority of Christians, or with members of any other religion for that matter.

That disgraceful. I don't know who these people are, but anyone who could think of ruining a family's last chance to say goodbye is little better than an animal. I have my own opinions about Heath Ledger, but this is appalling.

Sickening. I wonder how'd they take it a group picketed one of the members funerals with a similar hate motive?
Picketing at someone's funeral is sickening to thing about really or even do, even if the deceased was a murderer or something sinful. I believe a funeral is a time of respect not to show hate and all that crap.

Who knows - but they allegedly didn't have this kind of money - so it is interesting that they still have money to spare on such excursions.
