Solider Bum Rushes Westboro Baptist Church Protester!
The Republicans kindly disavowed this group! The infamous anti-gay group from Topeka, Kansas travels across the country picketing the funerals of soldiers, bullied teenagers, and of course the gay community.
This weekend, the protest group gets into it with the family and friends of fallen solider Donna Johsnon, a openly gay woman who served in the U.S. Army. Her funeral was held in North Carolina.
The soldier was killed in the longest war in American history. Her wife and friends were attending the funeral when the anti-gay group was heckling the attendees.
A person in the crowd confronts and slams down on Fred Phelp's family members.
The person was apprehended after the attack!
Although they practice in disgusting acts of protest, the Westboro Baptist Church knows how to handle themselves when it comes to free speech laws. They've been sued by individuals over their disruptive behavior at funerals of the dead.
Shirley Phelps-Roeper is the leader of the church and media spokesperson.
