Members of a small Missouri town banded together Saturday to block a controversial pastor and members of his Westboro Baptist Church from protesting the funeral of a fallen U.S. soldier, Fox4kc.com reports.

Hundreds of residents in Weston, Mo. -- as well as people as far away as California and Australia -- rallied in support of Sgt. First Class C.J. Sadell, who died from injuries suffered during a surprise attack in Afghanistan.

The residents sought to block Fred Phelps, leader of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., and his followers from picketing Sadellís funeral, according to the station. See the full store below at Fox News dot com.

I'm glad to see that the townfolks reared up and denied that scumbag access.

Solider or not a funeral is never a time that should be picked for a protest. It's nice to see that good, right thinking ppl are prepared to stand together against these fanatics ("A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject"--Winston Churchill)

Sometimes I believe too much is allowed in the name of 'freedom of speech', did you know it is not longer a crime to burn the American flag, now in case you don't know I am only new to this country being originally from Dublin, Ireland but even I think that is wrong. Nebraska tried to bring one of the members of the Westboro church up on charges for the same carry on but due to these changes were unable to make anything stick.

Anyhow, an argument for another thread there I think....for now though my condolences to the family and their loss.

You would think that you could inter a fallen soldier without crap from some really messed up zealots. Mad respect for the people that stood up to this tool group. I don't even want to imagine that bad karma those a$$hats are building up.

Tango, that is one of the best stories I've seen in a while.

Phelps; stay home
 
Their are several articles going around. A sicking moment; when you are laying to rest a loved one.
I admire this community; and those from far away; ''picketing'' 'Phelp's mob of misguided souls.
At any level; this is sad.
