Today, Many received word that the Westboro Baptist Church from Kansas – the same group that goes around the nation protesting military funerals – will be coming to Williamsport in order to crash the funeral of the late Lance Cpl. Abe Howard, 21.
The Westboro Baptist Church has been infamous for their protesting of military funerals across the country, their most recent visit to PA being about three years ago in Turbotville. For some unexplained reason, these mid-west wackos believe our soldiers untimely passings are because God is punishing us for “tolerating homosexuality”, despite the fact none of these soldiers have identified as gay.
And now they want to come spread their hatred in OUR hometown! I believe I speak for everyone when I say this is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
First and foremost, this is not a gay rights issue – it’s a moral one. So, the question remains: What are we going to do?
WE’RE GOING TO SHOW THEM WILLIAMSPORT PRIDE!!
That said, we the people need to protect the Howard Family – and this funeral – from these hate-mongering degenerates. It’s not only our prerogative, it’s the right thing to do.
These people will no doubt be carrying signs that will say the most hurtful things imaginable for no particular reason. We cannot let them get the satisfaction of knowing people are seeing them. Here’s what we need to do:
1. If you have extra sheets, secure them to some kind of pole – as many as you can – and bring them tomorrow. They will be used as shields. Color does not matter.
2. We need to keep everyone as quiet as possible. The sheets will shield the family from the WBC people, letting the Howard’s grieve in peace.
TIME & LOCATION: 10:15 at Annunciation Church, 702 W. 4th St., Williamsport. Tomorrow!!
Even if you do not want to bring a "Sheet Shield," I'm sure the Howard Family would greatly appreciate your presence and support.
While it severely angers me that I cannot be of help tomorrow in person (seeing as how I will be in Washington), I wanted to do whatever I personally could to help protect the Howard Family and Lance Cpl. Abe Howrd from these people.
Signs IN SUPPORT of the Howard Family – as well as our troops – would be suggested.
Like the saying goes, “Williamsport: The WILL is in us.” Let’s drive these people out of town and show the freaks The WILL of Williamsport.
For the cause,
