ANDERSON, Calif. — A group dedicated to hate plans on protesting Chad Regelin’s funeral.
They’re called the Westboro Baptist Church and are known for protesting funerals of soldiers killed in action as well as their extreme stance against homosexuality.
We checked the groups website where there’s a press release saying they’ll demonstrate at Petty officer Chad Regelin’s funeral Saturday in Anderson, Ca.
Their protests include picketing funerals as well as desecrating the American flag.
Regelin was killed by an IED or improvised explosive device earlier this month in Afghanistan.
The bottom of the church’s press release says quote, “THANK GOD FOR IEDs.”
We did some background checking.
The church is based out of Topeka, Kansas.
Many have taken legal action against the group to get them to stop protesting military funerals, but a supreme court ruling declared the protests legal under first amendment rights. All but one Supreme Court Justice ruled that the baptist group had the right to protest.
The first amendment prohibits enforcing any law that impedes the free exercise of religion.
I’m so fucking sick of these people!!!
Really? They’re awful.
Why don’t the cops show up and kick these guy’s asses like they do the OWS protesters?
Oh… I guess because their agenda isn’t a threat to public opinion against the super wealthy.
