DAMN that first amendment.... I'd sign up to see these people fry.

Soldier funeral protester arrested

By Eric Olson, Associated Press Writer | June 6, 2007
OMAHA, Neb. --A member of the Kansas group that has drawn criticism for protesting at soldiers' funerals has been arrested for letting her 10-year-old son stomp on a U.S. flag during a demonstration. She promised Wednesday to challenge the state's flag desecration law in court.

Shirley Phelps-Roper, 49, will be charged with flag mutilation, disturbing the peace and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, Sarpy County Attorney Lee Polikov said Wednesday.

Phelps-Roper, a member of the Westboro Baptist Church, acknowledged that she allowed her son Jonah to stand on the flag Tuesday -- something she says is protected by the U.S. Constitution.


Phelps-Roper is a daughter of Westboro's founder, the Rev. Fred Phelps. Members have protested at more than 280 military funerals in 43 states since June 2005, she said.

The group says the deaths of U.S. soldiers are God's punishment for a nation that harbors gays and lesbians. Nebraska and 37 other states have laws restricting how close protesters can get to funerals, inspired at least in part by the Westboro protests.

I'm guessing that liberal uber socialist organization, the ACLU will defend their right to stomp on the flag.

Damn those hippie liberal commie freaks for defacing our flag!!!!

is it immoral for me to want a bitch like this to be brought to the front of national attention and fried by the humiliation of her inhumanity (along with the rest of the Phelps klan)?

btw Paddy, I see you've been busy the past few days plugging at Think Progress and Americablog :-p

I ran across this and left it on ABlog for folks to peruse.

Such nice people they are.

As for 'ashen shard': 'is it immoral for me to want a bitch...'. We'll start with the prick who's her father. It all began with him, not her. No doubt she is part.

Sometimes I wish there was some law against the type of brainwashing Fred Phelps does to these people.

Anyway, if you are not familiar with it, there is a site that parodies these morons:
I always go there when I need to cool off and have a good laugh at these idiots.
