"The Westboro Baptist Church once again makes the headlines. This time however, the good news is that they were foiled in their attempts to disrupt another serviceman’s funeral. Mississippi gives the Westboro the kind of welcome that we would all like to give."
And I applaude the fine folks of Mississippi for doing the right thing and keeping these trolls from trolling.
There's more to this story...
"A couple of days before, one of them (Westboro protestors) ran his mouth at a Brandon gas station and got his arse waxed. Police were called and the beaten man could not give much of a description of who beat him. When they canvassed the station and spoke to the large crowd that had gathered around, no one seemed to remember anything about what had happened."
I don't condone the violence against them, but I am glad that the townspeople were able to prevent the WBC from protesting.
