Westboro Baptist Members Tires Get Slashed - Receive More Bad News

While only a small handful of them gain traction with the media, protests happen each and every day. Many of them are from peaceful and non-controversial groups and go off without a hitch, while others stem from protesters that are attempting to force contentious beliefs on others. The Westboro Baptist Church falls into the latter group, and members of the group have a knack for touting their cause in outlandish ways.

As AWM shares, the church was at it again recently, but things didn’t work out too well for them. The anti-homosexuality group decided that it was appropriate to stage a protest at the funeral of Army Sergeant James McCluskey in Oklahoma, as members believe that soldiers are killed by God as a form of punishment for homsexuality. Seriously. This isn’t the first military funeral the group has protested either, and that’s led to them not being welcomed with open arms.

Beyond the outlandishness and absurdness of the group’s views, it is beyond the scope of poor taste to disrupt a person’s funeral under any circumstances - let alone to advance an agenda that’s important to only you and your members. However, they do have the right to protest, and that places funeral attendees and local law enforcement in a tough spot. Thankfully, this scenario played out without even a hint of violence, but the church would wind up with a serious problem on its hands.

While engaging in their usual rabble rousing, the tires on the group’s van would remarkably go flat. Calls for assistance from a tow service went unheeded, as is within the rights of the proprietor of the tow service. That led the protesters to have the gall to seek out assistance from funeral attendees, but those pleas for help fell on deaf ears. Members were forced to push the van away with their tails between their legs, and they were denied service at every repair shop in town. Perhaps this was all a coincidence, or maybe it was a sign that God doesn’t particularly care for funerals being disrupted.
