Dodge City showdown
By Ed Lavandera
CNN



DODGE CITY, Kansas (CNN) -- This past Saturday morning I found myself in a five-car caravan cutting across the Kansas plains with about 30 religious protesters. In the back of a truck, there were signs that read "Thank God for IED's" and "Thank God for Dead Soldiers."

I was with the Phelps family. They've launched a disturbing campaign to tarnish the funerals of fallen soldiers.

This is a painful drama playing out at dozens of military funerals across the country. The group is led by Fred Phelps.

He and his family have picketed and heckled military families at more than 100 funerals since June. They say the soldiers are fighting for an army that represents a country that accepts homosexuality.

I have spent a great deal of time in the last few weeks tracking the movements of Fred Phelps and his family. Saturday, I followed him and his family from their home in Topeka, Kansas, to a funeral in Dodge City, Kansas.

Fred Phelps is the pastor of Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka. The congregation is made up mostly of his family. Phelps has 13 children, 54 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.

He describes himself as an "old-time" gospel preacher who says, "You can't preach the Bible without preaching the hatred of God."

Phelps and his family have made a name for themselves by showing up at high-profile events preaching their hate-filled brand of Christianity. They blame homosexuals for the destruction of America.

This past weekend's target was Army Sgt. Jessie Davila.

Davila was killed February 20 in Iraq by a suicide bomber. He served as a Marine after graduating from high school. He returned to civilian life, and had a daughter. But he was always a soldier at heart, so two years ago he joined the Army National Guard and was three months into an Iraqi deployment when he was killed.

This is also very much a story about another phenomenon the Phelps protest has created. That's the birth of a group called the "Patriot Guard Riders." They're a volunteer group that came together after hearing that so many military families were being blindsided by the protesters.

More than 400 motorcycles thundered toward this showdown in Dodge City this weekend to make sure Sgt. Jessie Davila's funeral was not overshadowed by the Phelps protest. They converged from small towns all over southwest Kansas to support Sgt. Davila's family. One group leader says, "I knew we would have a crowd, but I didn't know it would be this big."

The procession of rolling thunder escorted Davila's family from memorial services to the grave site on a quiet hill.

In the end, Sgt. Davila's family says they were only able to hear a little bit of the Phelps protest. Davila's mother, Linda Claus, says she's grateful for the Patriot Guard Riders. But she also wants other military families to be aware that this could happen to them.

"When people begin to know what they're (Fred Phelps' family) really doing -- killing the American Dream -- they won't be around very long, because nobody's going to let them. They'll drown them out. They'll be gone," Claus said.

Since CNN started airing reports on these funeral confrontations a few weeks ago, the Patriot Guard Riders say its membership has almost tripled. And more than a dozen states are now considering legislation that would restrict protesting at funerals.

The Phelps family vows to continue these protests. They might be outnumbered, but the way the Patriot Guard Riders see it, it only takes one of them to dishonor the memory of a fallen soldier.

And I take a little bit of solace in thinking that there are a few made to order bull dyke demons waiting in hell for Phelps and his ilk.

When Fred Phelps dies, I'm going to his funeral. Right in the middle of it, I'm going to stand up, drop my pants, point at my rectum, and proclaim "FRED PHELPS ****ED ME IN THE ASS and forced me to suck his tiny peepee."

The sad part is Phelps has been around for at least 30 years that I know of. I don't know why nobody has "offed" him. At least people have shot "Killer Tiller". I wonder how many on here know who "Killer Tiller" is?

It's only been relatively recently that he's been protesting against stuff that anyone really cares about. I mean, yeah, he's been mean to gays, but in the long run it's not my problem, right? But now it's soldiers, so now something has GOT to be done.

I just can't imagine, that if the unthinkable had happend to my brother over there.....that MANY members of our family wouldn't have tollerated that level of disrespect without severe consequences.

The sad thing is....look how many Cops and Children those cowards hide behind.

Someday, somewhere.....there will be a family, large enough and angry enough to bumrush those jerks, and have enough neices and nephews to take the kids out too. Some small town Police force isn't going to be able to stop a determined, angry family like that.


Free speech is one thing......but it shouldn't come without consequences in instances like these.

I've told this story before, but...
My fiance is a minister. One year, at a conference for her denom. the Phelps clan was protesting outside. A youth group she was involved in, all dressed in white, and stood in front of them with signs, pointed at them, saying "God Loves You" and stuff like that.

Oh yeah, that's what it's all about. :rolleyes:

The Phelps cult has been in the news around here since the early 90s as far as I can remember. They even made national news back then. People were disgusted with them and all their BS picketing, including when they started picketing funerals of gay people. Some people even went as far as getting into fights with them and other things.

The only problem is that the police protect them. Not only that but their family is a bunch of attornies. They hide behind the police and the law. If you challenge them, you will most likely end up with them causing you a bunch of problems. Frankly, I wish somebody would take them out. But it would have to be very discreet(like at their compound) and I'm not even sure if that's possible.

You can roll your "eyes" as long as you want. But, yeah, people have always hated him. My point is, no one really cared to get this worked up before he started going after troops. He's been in the news, as far as I've seen, FAR more since this. A counter-cult is being started and publicized now, because of the troops. Was there a travelling pack of folks following him and protesting him before this? No. People dislike that he's hateful to gays, but it's not their problem... it those guys'. But now that he's going after troops FAR more people are making it their problem. Nothing wrong with admitting that far more people are interested in protecting the persona of those in the military than gays. It's just the way the country is right now. I think it's wrong, but it's a fact. So go ahead and get bent out of shape that I brought it up... then realize that it's the facts.

I grew up around BSA and was extremely active from 10-18 years of age. I know of one guy that did some stuff like this. He turned out to be really nuts. His name was Jack Walls, and he was having affairs with a bunch of different kids, and teaching them how to be assassins and all kinds of weird shit. One of his "apprentices" went on to kill his parents and is in jail for it now. The synopsis is here (http://www.courttv.com/archive/onair/shows/crimestories/q_z_episodes/scoutmasters_secret.html).

Pretty crazy stuff. I knew the guy and knew a lot of the kids in his troops really well. We all thought he was really "cool" but our leaders always sort of kept us away from him. I guess they knew that something was up.

It is perfectly acceptable to be more irate about Phelps protesting military funerals. These boys gave their lives in service to this country. Sorry if that sticks in your craw.
