I don't know of anybody who approves of what this guy is doing. His church is mostly made up of relatives. He has a son who left the fold and has plenty to say about his family situation, growing up. I don't believe he should be allowed on the streets, let alone protesting at funerals.

I think Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church followers are hate-filled nuts! I've noticed that people who believe in brotherly love and tolerance don't often make much noise about it, but when the Westboro folks disseminate their vile, despicable messages so loudly, and when they stage hateful, hurtful protests, the kind and loving folks DO stand up together, in large numbers, against them. So maybe, in some perverse way that isn't at all as he intended, Pastor Phelps is doing God a favor. Nevertheless, I think what he is doing is shameful, and I wish he'd go away and stop inflicting pain on the families of our fallen soldiers.

I think this is absolutely horrible. There is something wrong with this man.

I think it's disgusting, and I also think the Supreme Court justices would love to find a way to call it unconstitutional, but I'm afraid they will have to rule on the side of freedom of speech.

I say surely a man deserves a little privacy in his death. But sometimes we do look like Sodom.

Hopefully all our freedoms will be upheld. Quickly we ant to deny, deny those we disagree with and in turn we lose in the end with less freedoms ourselves. I deserve freedom of speech but you should shut up? Still yet, in death a man deserves his moment. Sister ?

This idiot protests all the time in KC....you know that he was disbarded as a lawyer, then became a preacher and that his whole congregation is family....the bikers have taken up the banner to protect the families...remember when I posted the flag out in front of my house because a young man on our street died in the war? I really struggle with this group

I still think we must uphold the right of all or we will lose our own freedoms. Freedom of speech should be for all not just those who agree with me. Still the funeral seems off limits for this. We have little peace in our lifetimes surely we serve it in our time of death.
