What are we gay atheist veterans to make of a group like this?
From the Daily Southtown:
Wow. They offend me on so many different levels.A Baptist group from Kansas has announced it plans to picket Friday at the funeral of Spc. Adam Harting.
The Westboro Baptist Church, based in Topeka, is not specifically targeting Harting, who died in Iraq last week.
It pickets at military funerals all over the country, saying God is killing U.S. soldiers as punishment to America for allowing homosexuality.
The group also has announced plans to picket at military funerals in Minnesota, Alabama and California this week.
Army Sgt. Bob Jaso, military liaison to the Harting family, said the group tries to provoke physical confrontation with mourners.
