Homophobic Church Group to Picket Navy Air Station

Homophobic Church Group to Picket Navy Air Station

Members of a radical Kansas church who say punished three Navy officers killed in the recent helicopter crash are planning to picket outside Naval Air Station-Corpus Christi.

Members of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church believe punished the officers because of the sins of the nation.

Picketing is set to start at noon Saturday at the main gate at SPID and NAS Drive in Flour Bluff. Church members are expected to carry signs that read " Hates the Nation," and to thank for the Jan. 16 helicopter crash that claimed the lives of three sailors based here.

The church issued a press release, which reads "Thank for navy copter crash in Texas, killing three."

Shirley Phelts-Roper, a member of the church, said protestors are coming to Corpus Christi because the nation has made its number one enemy.

"When you see your military weapons of might being dispatched to the ground and trauma and drama all around, (it) is the promises of being delivered to you," Phelts-Roper said.

The Topeka, Kans., church group is known for disturbing protests. In the past, they have targeted the funerals of U.S. military personnel killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The group's core belief is that every tragedy in the world is linked to society's acceptance of homosexuality.

Military installations like NAS-corpus Christi are also targeted by church members because they believe the U.S. military has declared war on Westboro Baptist Church members.

About a year ago, the group planned to protest outside a local church during funeral services for John Paul Barta, who died in Iraq. Church members did not show up.

Dan Creswell of the local Patriot Guard Riders said his group plans to stand shoulder-to-shoulder, with flags in front of protesters to keep people from seeing and hearing their messages.

"They are the furthest thing from a Christian organization, I think, as one can get," Creswell said. "It's a perverted interpretation of the scripture and it's disgusting."

The closest protestors can get to the base is 500 yards from the main gate.

A base spokesman asked for a comment about the protest said he would "not acknowledge a hate-filled group that preys on service members."

I disagree with the statement of the journalist that the westboro baptist church is really that hated... does anyone really hate these people? I just feel sorry for them, they look disturbed. Ask youself a question - would you hate a schizo? The guy in red probably also has homosexual emotions which he is trying to supress... sad sad sad....

I think hate them. Did you see them walking around with our US flag at their feet? Furthermore, doing this at a military funeral? My father was a Naval flight instructor stationed in Corpus when his plane went down, killing him and the students. If people like these were "demonstrating" at my father's funeral, disrepecting my family and country, I would have serious amount of hate for them, and probably an uncontrolled anger. They don't realize how negative they are. I don't understand why the Baptist Church hasn't done something to make them change their name. It's hard to fathom that they actually call themselves Christians.

they are deranged. I dont think hate is the applicable verb here. You hate ur enemy. Someone that is in clear mind and is willfully causing you harm. These guys are just crazy! I dont even think they are my enemies.

When you allow hate into your heart, that is also a avenue for the devil to pursue. I'm not saying these people are justified, but I would rather have compassion for them, for they do not know of what they speak. Because I believe will in turn, have a plan for them once they pass on to the next life.


Do what you want, feel how you wanna feel, but like tell's us......love every one of your brothers and sisters......:dontknow:
