Westboro Baptist Church to Protest Funeral of 9-Year-Old Girl Murdered in Tucson Shooting; Hells Angels to the Rescue?

Christina Green was murdered on Saturday. Despicably, the members of the Westboro Baptist Church plan to protest her funeral.
​M
embers of the controversial Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas, announced today that they plan to protest the funeral of a 9-year-old girl murdered during Saturday's shooting rampage in Tucson.

(UPDATE: Westboro Baptist Church agrees to not protest funeral in exchange for radio air time)

In a press release, the group -- made infamous for holding protest rallies at other funerals, including that of Elizabeth Edwards, cancer victim and wife of former presidential candidate John Edwards -- says 9-year-old Christina Green "was killed for your rebellion when God sent the shooter to deal with idolatrous America."

We'll spare you the rest of the group's despicable rant, but anyone interested can read it at www.godhatesfags.com.

Christina was among six murdered in the attack at a Safeway grocery store Saturday morning, where Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was holding a "Congress on Your Corner" event about 10 a.m. Saturday.

Recently elected to her school's student council, she had gone with a family friend to meet her congresswoman when Jared Loughner allegedly opened fire on the crowd, killing six and wounding several others -- including Giffords.

The young girl was born on September 11, 2001, which, her parents say, made her very patriotic for a kid.

When the WBC's held similar events in the past, the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club has rallied and peacefully prevented the group from getting close to funeral processions.

Christina's funeral is scheduled for 12:15 p.m. on Thursday at the Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish in Tucson. We called Lee Cole, president of the Hells Angels' Phoenix chapter, to see if he plans to assemble his troops to keep the WBC away from the funeral. He didn't immediately get back to us, but check back to Valley Fever later for an update.

 Crooks often spend all the money they have and without any problems will file for bankruptcy. Las Vegas is a city where people very often come and pick up wrong habits like gambling and end up being bankrupt. This is the reason why the laws of bankruptcy have been made a lot stricter in Las Vegas.

I'm not sure I even understand this time, what are they picketing FOR? Do they want no funeral ceremony? no media coverage? Or had the outrage started to die down about soldiers and fag-enablers (best phrase ever btw - there's a big banner outside the local gay bar saying "fag-enablers welcome!") so they thought "I know, let's torment the parents of a young murder victim"

Someone (or a group of people) should sue the Westboro until they're bankrupt. 

This is absolutely disgusting. Westboro, you have no right to call yourself a church, you false 'prophets'. 

When one of the Phelps die, I hope swarms upon swarms of people picket the funeral.

They totally miss the point and shouldn't call themselves Christian if they can't follow what the Bible says. Nowhere does it say God hates anyone. He hates sin, but he does not hate people. And they need to get the point that we are to show love and kindness, not hate. It's true that marriage was created as one man, one woman, but if they don't realize the problems with their message, they're going to be in for a rude awakening when they each stand in judgement.

Keep in mind that these are the people who rejoice in a tweet about Steve Job's death (because he gave god no credit for his wonders) that was sent via an iPhone. I can't wait 'til old Freddy find his way to the grave.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. -- A former Nevada brothel owner has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for his conviction on two child pornography charges in Wyoming.David Burgess was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court for possessing and transporting child pornography.

U.S. District Judge Alan B. Johnson also sentenced the 55-year-old Hells Angel motorcycle club member to 10 years of supervision upon his release, lifetime registration as a sex offender and a fine of $20,000.

The Patriot Guard Riders are NOT a M/C We will not be attending any funerals for the victims of the Tucson shooting victoms. The PGR has a mission statement that we have to follow in order to keep our nonprofit status. We are not a counter protest group. Its not that we don`t want to be there,but we cant be there in an offical capacity. We can go to show support as private citizens without flying the PGR flags,patches,and other insignia.(And many will) but I just wanted to clear upthe reason why we cant be there as the Official PGR. for more info look on the PGR website www.patriotguard.org

Too bad these weren't the people caught in the crossfire. I read the bible also and no where that I've seen , does it say if you are a christian , kill anyone who doesn't share your beliefs. We are not on earth to judge everyone we meet. I thought JUDGEMENT DAY is determined by God and to my understanding there is only one God. We should each be responsible for ourselves and our own actions. Unless what someone else is doing is impacting our own lives , we should just leave them alone. I don't like the catholic church nor what they stand for but the best thing I can do is stay the hell away from them.

What sickens me, and makes me quite sad, is that this type of thinking is still alive today. I'm not Christian, but I still believe that everyone has the right to believe in whatever God they wish. I don't push my beliefs on others, and I expect the same respect shown to me. These people haven't evolved past the fourteenth century ideals of death as God's punishment. People like this perpetuated the Spanish Inquisition. People like this allowed the Salem Witch trials to proceed. Should we all return to those times where a person's beliefs were met with death by those in power?

The only thing that should matter is that not only did 6 people lose their lives, but a child was takin in the best years, its sad to hear that a church would think in anyway that a child deserved to die because a sick person sad GOD told him to. Well, as we all know history repeats itself, so what would they say if it was there children being gunned down? Who would they blame the? Their children or GOD?!!!! Theres a fine line between Karma and GOD, which seems more real?

Once again Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist Church are just proving that SATAN can pretend to be ANYONE. There is going to be a special place in the HOTTEST part of HELL for these people. God is a God of Love not revenge and hate. These twisted people are no better then the CULTS who believe that God says it is ok for them to molest children. Unfortunately they may have the right to protest like this. BUT ... shouldn't we begin protesting them AT their church. Quietly disrupt their services. Block the entrances to their parking lots .... Take pictures of their followers and show the world who they really are. Follow them and give them the FAME they want. Just not the way they want it. I'm sure if you look even they have skeletons in their closets that will prove they are not the religious zealots they claim to be .... just people who have found a way to make money from people who believe they are right. Just because you have the RIGHT to say something or to protest, doesn't mean you should. Especially during a funeral. If you believe that is ok ... then I pray that God has saved you a seat in HELL right next to Fred Phelps. Because any God who would think that is ok. Is not a God of Love, compassion, and salvation. He would have to be a God of Hate, Vengeance, and Cruelty. Sounds like Satan to me, not God. The bible say you will be known by your works. You be the judge!

It is obvious that these people are more interested in publcity and self aggrandizement then influencing public opinion. I think there should be a nation wide boycott starting with the media. If the group doesn't get reinforcement, they will fade away. The airlines should refuse to sell them tickets to get to funerals, and gas stations should refuse to fill up their cars witih gas. They can express themselves, and so can we.

The murder of any child is a tragedy and for a Baptist Church who claims to believe in God should not be Praising or demonstrating against any American Citizens, much less a child who 's innocence was taken from her and all those who were affected by this nuts rampage. If there are attorneys out there, that are apart of this group they should not hide behind religion as a shield for their political views. There are plenty of nut jobs out there that are more that willing to get their hands on attorneys. Maybe they should spend their time more usefully having fun raisers, and bake sales like any normal church. Let this child and the others who lost their lives in peace.Your, Non Religous

I FEEL SORRY FOR THE FAMILY OF THIS CHILD AND THE VICTIMS AND THEIR FAMILIES OF ALL WHO BECAME A PART OF THIS TRAGEDY. A FUNERAL IS CERTAINLY NOT THE PLACE OR TIME FOR ANYONE TO PROTEST ANYTHING. IF THIS GROUP WAS A REAL GOD LOVING AND GOD FEARING GROUP THEY WOULD LEAVE THIS FAMILY IN PEACE TO BURY THEIR DAUGHTER. I SEE THIS AS THEIR CHANCE TO GET IN THE SPOTLIGHT AND GUESS WHAT IT IS WORKING BECAUSE OUR MEDIA COVERAGE AND OUR ATTENTION IS NOW FOCUSED ON THEM AND NOT WHERE IT SHOULD ON THE DEATH OF THESE INNOCENT PEOPLE AND THEIR FAMILIES. THEY HAVE DONE WHAT THEY SET OUT TO DO BY MAKING SUCH A STATEMENT AND GETTING PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND ME TO TALK AND GIVE THEM THE SATISFACTION OF CREATING THE HATE IN OUR HEARTS FOR THE ACTIONS THAT THEY ARE FIXING TO DO. I BELIEVE IN GOD AND I DO FEEL THAT EVERYTHING IN LIFE THAT HAPPENS IS FOR A REASON UNKNOWN TO US. I CAN ONLY BELIEVE THAT THERE IS A MESSAGE OR LESSON TO BE LEARNED AND THAT IN SOME WAY THE DEATH AND INJURY OF THESE PEOPLE WILL HELP US IN THE FUTURE TO MAKE THINGS DIFFERENT. OUR COUNTRY, OUR FREEDOMS, OUR BELIEFS ARE BEING ATTACK BECAUSE IN OUR EYES AND HEARTS THESE ARE THINGS THAT SHOULD NOT HAPPEN; THE MASS KILLING, PROTESTING WHILE A FAMILY TRIES TO LAY THEIR SWEET DAUGHTER TO REST. IT CAN MAKE YOU QUESTION YOUR FAITH AND TAKE A LONG LOOK AT WHY & HOW SOMETHING LIKE CAN HAPPEN. I AM IN HOPES THAT THESE PEOPLE WILL RECONSIDER BUT THEY PROBABLY WILL NOT, I AM IN HOPES THAT SOME AGENCY CAN HELP TO PREVENT THIS FAMILY OR ANY OF THE REST FROM DEALING WITH WITH THIS GROUP OF MISGUIDED, ILL INTENDED PEOPLE FROM DISTURBING THERE FINAL MINUTES WITH THEIR LOVE ONES.

Well, my day is wrecked from hearing about this sick shit. Too bad I'm stuck out on island in the middle of the Gulf of Alaska. Then again, if I showed up to help block the protestors I must honestly admit I don't know if I could keep it together at the sight of them and might lose it and do something rageful and stupid. So it's probably for the best that I can't make it.

To WBC people from a long time Christian: Jesus himself said "hate the sin, not the sinner" and he also commanded us to "love our enemies". Why do you suppose He told us those things? God doesn't hate anybody and you people need to get on your knees and ask God if you are doing the right thing by doing such a hateful thing such as protesting at someone's private funeral - what a rude thing to do to people that are grieving. I pray that God will reveal his true self to you all. You are clearly not a true representation of God.

you cant depend on a bunch of meth addicts like the hells angels to be at something like this. they are all sleeping all day long trying to catch some Zs from lack of sleep and to many days being up and awake wired to the gills on their own speed they make cook and sell. they dont start their days till about 6pm. then they all cruz over to the local 81 clubhouse around 9pm stay up all night partying then they head home around sunrise. i live on the same street as one of their local Arizona clubhouses and this is how they do things 7 days a week.
