Nightmare on Phelps Street

BOISE, Idaho -- A Kansas preacher and gay rights foe whose congregation is protesting military funerals around the country said he's coming to Idaho on Wednesday to picket the memorial for an Idaho National Guard soldier killed in Iraq.

A flier on the Web site of Pastor Fred Phelps' Westboro Baptist Church claims God killed Cpl. Carrie French with an improvised explosive device in retaliation against the United States for a bombing at Phelps' church six years ago.


French, 19, was a Caldwell High School graduate and varsity cheerleader. She was killed June 5 in the northern city of Kirkuk. French served as an ammunition specialist with the 116th Brigade Combat Team's 145th Support Battalion.


Caldwell Police Chief Bob Sobba said he cannot bar Phelps from going to the public funeral, which is scheduled for 1 p.m. Wednesday at the Albertson College of Idaho in that city.

I think we need some civil disobedience done upon Mr. Phelps' entaurage. That man should no longer be able to visit his brand of hatred upon anyone after tomorrow. Get him arrested, get him indicted for hate crimes, just get him out of the public eye and get him in a dank dark cell where he can never preach his hatred ever again.

I'm going to try to take the afternoon off. I will be ready for this, I will not stand for this kind of shit to be done to an American soldier in my state. I expect to see a huge showing of resistance from Mountain Home as well.

If you are going to this, please contact me here and I'll try to organize a meet up point.
