Religion and the abuse thereof.

Good Evening:

I read an article in the newspaper today that has made me madder than is good for me.

The article concerns the death of a Patriot, A citizen soldier, a U.S. Marine, and an only son. The only son of Mr. Al Snyder. Matthew Snyder was the beloved, only son of Al Snyder.

In 2006 two United States Marines knocked on Mr. Snyder's door to bring the news that every Military Parent or relative dreads. After only five weeks in Iraq, Al's son Matthew had given his life for his Country. As if Mr. Snyder's grief was not difficult enough, on its own, for him to bear, at his Son's Funeral, a gang of "Protesters" picketed the route of Matthew's Cortege, bearing the most vile and filthy worded signs expressing their hatred, thinly veiled as religion.

It is really difficult for me to even write of this filthy outrage and I cannot even imagine the crushing burden that had to be borne by Mr. Snyder, in a time for grief and respect only.

This band of misguided fools were at least part of the congregation of the Westboro Baptist Church whose fuhrer, certainly not a real pastor, the "Rev" Fred Phelps has successfully harangued his flock (If a collection of brain dead garden slugs can be called a flock) and caused them to attend selected Military funerals with their signs of hatred and vituperation, that are as far from the Gospel as Satan is from Jesus.

This so called "Church" is in Topeka, Kansas, and why a all-knowing supreme being has chosen not to send down an all consuming Bolt of Righteous lightning to wipe out these inmates of a fools academy is beyond me.

I believe, absolutely, if I were at a funeral where such an outrage occurred, there would be a necessity for a few more Funerals in the immediate aftermath.

I think, without proof, but with a certainty of my own, that this unholy congregation of protesters are probably of the sort that like to French Kiss Rattlesnakes as part of their weekly crawl-in.

Now, I am as sure as I can be that my Anger is just exactly what this bunch hopes to engender, but my God my God why are people like this allowed to inhabit this Planet.

The Supreme Court is currently hearing the a case filed by Mr. Snyder, against this "Church", and I think anyone who reads this will join me in hoping and praying that the Court will uphold a Multi-Million Dollar judgement in the favor of Mr. Snyder.

But if any of you are curious about this "Church" and its insane congregation, I'm sure it would be easy to find,............Just follow the Slime Tracks.

If this is a First Amendment Case then I'm the Pope.

Stay well, and Pray for our Men and Women who protect us .
