During the weekend It was pronounced that a local solider, Dan Kridlo was killed on duty in Afghanistan. The man was truly, in my opinion an American
Hero. He was a father to two 9 year old twin daughters, and everyone that has known him speaks very highly about him. His father made sure he was to
be buried in Arlington as deserved. Less than a month from now, he was due to return home for good. Any more background information can be found in
the article below.
This morning I read my local newspaper and see this:
A church protesting a persons funeral. You have got to be kidding me. I sat there reflected on it a bit, and I decided to start a post on your
thoughts. As I continued reading about the church, It reflected on me who the group of people were that are protesting this great mans funeral. I
watched an episode of 20/20, and what do you know its the same ridiculous group of people.
“Military funerals have become pagan orgies of idolatrous blasphemy, where they pray to the dunghill gods of Sodom & play taps to a fallen
"Spc. Kridlo gave his life for the Constitutional right of the Westboro Baptist Church to warn America. To deny our First Amendment rights is to
declare to the world that Spc. Kridlo died in vain, and that America is a nation of sodomite hypocrites.”

I do not agree with both wars on the Afghanistan and Iraqi front. I am a skeptic of 9/11. I disagree with Homosexuality. And I admit I am a bit
racist. But why go to such a radical approach, what good is seriously done by interrupting a great mans funeral with hate. Does R.I.P mean nothing to
these people? I understand the first amendment bull, but really?
