Protesting at soldiers’ funerals is just plain awful

By November 12, 2010

EDITOR:

I am very upset with the latest siege on American Christian values and the morality of our country that is being continually eroded by fanatical liberals, socialists, Marxists, communists, atheists, Muslim terrorists and those who portray themselves as Christians.

I am particularly upset by the demonstrations being held by a Baptist church against the family of a homosexual soldier to be buried in a military funeral. No matter your views regarding homosexuality the signs and demonstrations by this group are nothing but hate mongering. There is no “free speech” about it. When thinking about how we as a Christian nation or individual should respond to this assault on our values, one is overwhelmed trying to reach an answer.

First of all, I’d like to rattle their cage, but that solves nothing. Forgiving them for their hatred is almost impossible. I would like to point out a few facts regarding this type of demonstration and their point of view. Do they understand where, how and how many soldiers and Americans have died for their right to stand and voice their opinion? Their views against God, their love of hate based rhetoric, their hate of our country is beyond a thinking person’s comprehension.

I would like to urge ministers, persons of faith, citizens and lovers of America to stand up and rally against this rhetoric and hate mongering. Let your voice be heard, stand up for your country, stand up for sound moral values, stand up for our Christian nation, Stand up for God. Let our voices be heard in our churches and town square, whatever your religion. “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!’”Let these hate mongers know God is love, not hate. Forgiveness not personal judgment. Let’s rally for our nation for we indeed are a blessed land.

This incident, regarding this type expression of hate, as free speech, is being heard before the Supreme Court soon. Call your senator, congressman, your pastor and voice your view … pray, maybe even the super liberal views of our judges can be swayed if enough people voice their opinion.
