I have a question: Who pays these guys to fly all around the country slandering and disrupting funerals? They seem to do it a lot, who pays the bills?

They like to point to any tragedy and call it God's Will, and point the finger at what they consider sinners. Maybe the father drank or smoked or had sex with more than one person, or maybe the kids weren't perfect. I am starting to think the Westboro folks have never even read the Bible.
I am a long way from PA, but I am definitely showing up next time they are anywhere near me. I can afford an assault charge or two, I don't think it would ruin my life, especially if they can be provoked into being violent first. I would love to "defend myself" in their midst!
