Protesting Military FuneralsPosted Sunday, October 17, 2010, at 3:43 PM
My understading of this war was that our people are over in these foreign lands to fight for the "equality" and "democracy" of people who did not have the ability or know-how to fight for themselves (for whatever the reason). They are there to fight the genocide that was allowed under Nazi rule. Do I always agree that the U.S. has the right to force our way on others? No. Our way has not shown to be the "best" way as time has gone by (just look at Congress as an example).
Do I agree with the fact that we are on foreign ground fighting for the equality of people who could care less one way or another? Not really. Do I agree that our people are being killed by the very same people they are there to "help?" Not always.
However, to say that our soldiers are fighting for the rights of people to be gay, which also makes our soldiers gay and makes it an automatic trip to hell, is reaching to say the least.
I am not anti-gay myself. I have gay friends. I could care less what their sexual preference is. They are my friends regardless. Just about every human life has value(in my opinion). Sexual preference does not make ANYONE any less of a person or less worthy to be on this earth. A gay person should be able to fly a fighter jet, in my opinion, as much as the next guy. Who cares what sex you choose to sleep with as long as you do your job and have the backs of those who fight along side of you. Who are we to judge? There are a lot of straight folks out there who have far more disease than many of those in the gay population.
So back to the protest of these military funerals and walking around with signs that say these men, women, children, brothers, sisters, moms and dads deserve to die. This lady is nuts and just wants to breed hate. The really sad thing is that she has children who have made the choice to follow in her footsteps and that other people have made the choice to follow in her footsteps. Further, our military, the same people she protests and feels deserved to die, protect her rights to do so. Double edged sword.
I feel sorry for the families who have to deal with the death of a loved one and then pull up to bury their loved one and have to deal with that. Is it not enough that someone they loved, cherished and valued has died to protect the rights of others who do not have the same "rights" that we have here (for now anyway)? Is it not enough that these people, our soldiers, have lost their lives?
I do not agree with the "right" to protest a funeral. I think she should be kept away from the familes. They have suffered enough. However, if the government steps in and determines that this woman cannot do this, it will further erode the rights of others to gather and protest----whatever the cause. I am sure our government is just looking for a reason to do this.
Thank goodness for the Patriot Guard that keeps this wacko and others like her at least a distance away. Imagine having your entry blocked to a cemetary due to someone like this. But on the flip side of the issue, imagine not being allowed, by law, to protest. Obama sure would like that!
To everthing there is a season. Let us hope that the frost hits early for this season and that she finds another cause. For a supposed G-d fearing woman, she and her followers sure are full of hate, judgment and disdain. We can only hope that her children see the light and that G-d will have mercy on her soul come judgment day.

I have lived in Mountain Home for over 11 years now. I love to be outdoors in wide open spaces (as long as it does not involve camping...in a tent and an out house). I dislike Government waste/abuse of tax dollars and "sky is the limit" spending by those that we elect to represent "us." I value free speech when what is stated is factual (as opposed to lies, gossip and un-truths). I love the Chicago White Sox (I never said I was perfect) and the Broncos are okay too! I am 38 years old and married to a guy who is active duty USAF (and a Cubs fan...he is the "perfect" one). I am anti-nuclear and against further desecration of our planet with waste that we can do little to nothing with. If you dislike blunt, this is not the blog for you. Enjoy!
