    Anti-gay church protests at soldiers’ funerals
    Counterdemonstrators in Tennessee chase away members of small church


    Updated: 5:38 a.m. ET Aug. 28, 2005
    SMYRNA, Tenn. - Members of a church say God is punishing American soldiers for defending a country that harbors gays, and they brought their anti-gay message to the funerals Saturday of two Tennessee soldiers killed in Iraq.

    The church members were met with scorn from local residents. They chased the church members cars’ down a highway, waving flags and screaming “God bless America.”

    “My husband is over there, so I’m here to show my support,” 41-year-old Connie Ditmore said as she waved and American flag and as tears came to her eyes. “To do this at a funeral is disrespectful of a family, no matter what your beliefs are.”


    The Rev. Fred Phelps, founder of Westboro Baptist in Kansas, contends that American soldiers are being killed in Iraq as vengeance from God for protecting a country that harbors gays. The church, which is not affiliated with a larger denomination, is made up mostly of Phelps’ children, grandchildren and in-laws.

    ‘God hates you,’ signs read
    The church members carried signs and shouted things such as “God hates fags” and “God hates you.”


    About 10 church members protested near Smyrna United Methodist Church and nearly 20 stood outside the National Guard Armory in Ashland City. Members have demonstrated at other soldier funerals across the nation.

    The funerals were for Staff Sgt. Asbury Fred Hawn II, 35, in Smyrna and Spc. Gary Reese Jr., 22, in Ashland City. Both were members of the Tennessee National Guard.

    Large counterdemonstrations
    Hundreds of Smyrna and Ashland City residents and families of other soldiers turned out at both sites to counter the message the Westboro Baptist members brought.

    So many counterdemonstrators were gathered in Ashland City that police, sheriff’s deputies and state troopers were brought in to control traffic and protect the protesters.

    The church members held protesting permits, and counterprotesters in Smyrna turned their backs to Westboro Baptist members until time expired on the protest permits.

    “If they were protesting the government, I might even join them,” Danny Cotton, 56, said amid cries of “get out of our town” and “get out of our country.”

    “But for them to come during the worst time for this family — it’s just wrong.”

    all the foxnews commentators are right... Cindy Sheehan is a bad person, and looney.

    Only one problem: you forgot the word "radical" before rightwing.

            Many, Many people claim to be rightwing, however the majority are not radicals, on the contrare to what your little, spoonfed mind likes to think. The title is misleading, anyone can tell you that.

            30 people represent "rightwingers" in america?

              my point is: Bush/Cheney/Rice/Powell told us we are going into Iraq to take away all the millions of tons of WMDs Saddam had... and there was none.
              People like me and Cindy Sheehan can remeber 2 1/2 years ago, so we want to know what this war is really about (a terribly flawed and completly miscalculated neo-con plan to install a U.S. friendly Democracy in the Mid-East).
              Now this Sonless women has been called every name in the book, told she is Un-American, told she is the reason more soliders are beeing killed, called vile hatefull names.

              meanwhile these fucking wack-jobs are crashing funerals, spewing their hate, and nobody in the mainstream right will even bother to condeem them.

              all these fucking peices of shit who slight Cindy, could probably name only one fallen solider off the top of their head, and that is "Casey"... and the only reason they know his name is because of his brave mother.

                  what the fuck you call foxnews (the most watched cable news channel)
                  and the top 50 radio talkshow programs? The underground shit?

                  Then CNN does nuetral coverage of the Cindy story and completly ignores these anti-gay protesters and Foxnews and talkradio call CNN "left leaning" and part of this "massive elite mediea left"... its all bullshit.
                  These people have been disrespecting Soliders Funerals for a long time and nobody thought it was news worthy.

                      And Michael Moore shows his movie to millions of people, using soldiers funerals to promote his socialist agenda.

                      And Cindy Sheehan seems to be taking advice from the lefts Presidential Candidate. She said the following things about Bush after she met with him.

                      "I now know he's sincere about wanting freedom for the Iraqis, I know he's sorry and feels some pain for our loss. And I know he's a man of faith."
                      -Cindy Sheehan.

                      "That was the gift the president gave us, the gift of happiness, of being together,"
                      -Cindy Sheehan

                      "We have a lot of respect for the office of the president, and I have a new respect for him because he was sincere and he didn't have to take the time to meet with us,"
                      -Pat Sheehan.

                      "Sincerity was something Cindy had hoped to find in the meeting. Shortly after Casey died, Bush sent the family a form letter expressing his condolences, and Cindy said she felt it was an impersonal gesture."

                        I'll take that as a big OK to protest at funerals and tell greiving families "God hates them" from you then.

                          Once again this is the Liberals taking it out of context and saying all right wingers are like this. Come one dude, you should be smarter then that, this is like saying all Liberals are abortionist killers. What these people are doing is wrong and the majority of right wing people would not agree with that, quit trying to turn it into something its not.

                              That is the stupidest fucking thing ever. Of course that group is a radical fake-Christian group that has no concept of reality at all. If they even opened up there Bible, they would learn Jesus died for our sins and that God loves all people in the world. I think this groups comments are insane, and this kind of hate speech should not even be aloud. Why did Tennesse even give these guys protesting permits? This anti-Gay group is way out of control.

                              I was just commenting on Cindy Sheehan. Who like your Presidential Candidate Kerry totally 180 her stance on Bush.
