Much more interesting than Blah blah blah primary election in a state that I don't live in; blah blah blah house fire/accident; blah blah blah blah hard freeze warning tonight--day time tomorrow 55F, etc.

Unfortunatley they have shown up at funerals of the Sons and Daughters of Georgia. The PGR has stood their ground for the families while being spit upon by members of this group. The sad part is the kids, 8 and up, that are out there holding up the same hateful signs and shouting the same ugly things as the adults. It's sad, really sad.

The reporter had passion. I am glad the PGR in this area has not had to deal with that much krap.

There is a documentary by the BBC on this so-called Church. It woke me up and kept me attentive @ 4:30am one morning.
They bring out their 5 yr olds w/the "god hates ****" BS signs and they get hit in the head by cans tossed by passing cars!!!!!!
They are a cult, led by the grandfather and they pretend any family member who left doesn't exist.

Look for it on Discovery....Jim Jones got nothing on them!!!!!!!

Great.

My hats off for the news lady. She was stating what most people think and would not say and then folks say she lost it. I don't think so. The other lady was nuts. So sad that American blood has been lost so idiots like that have a freedom of speech.

Thank a teacher that you can read.
Thank a soldier that you can read in English.

Remember that the 1st Ammendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

It makes no mention of of protecting a dumbass from the people around them that they piss off with his or her "free speech."

Put a boot in their ass and call it "exercising freedom of speech" when they want you arrested.

What I love about electronics is the OFF button. The reporter should have pushed that idiot's button, her OFF button.

Jim,

I wish all news media would push their off button when it comes to these idiots. They believe any publicity is good no matter how bad. If the news stopped showing them, talking to them, interviewing them and giving them a soap box they would soon fade away, but as long as they see themselves on the news they think they are in the limelight and it just furthers their self proclaimed cause. In the Houston area we are pretty lucky, because the news media always makes a point of showing us (Patriot Guards) and mentioning that we escorted and they never mention the idiots from the so-called church. They haven't shown up for several months now. In fact sometimes I think we only do the P.G. stuff to show our respect anymore. Now that is a real shame huh? ;) I can't even begin to explain what I feel when I ride on a P.G. mission, but I know I am better for it and I hope we are helping the family in some small way.

PGR Update

There is a report the Father of one of the deceased soldiers sued this church and won a huge settlement. Of course it is being appealled. None of them have showed up in NC at the funerals I have attended. I make sure I am not packing when I go on PGR missions. don't trust myself if the jerks show up.

WOW! Hate to bring this up again...old news to many of you...but I just came across this thread. I ride with Rolling Thunder; we have a similar mission as that of the Patriot Guard; our primary goal is to ensure we don't leave any POW/MIA unaccounted for. Anyway, we had one of these "church" groups protest at a funeral here. We lined up between the protestors and the procession and the Harley riders revved their bikes and effectively drowned out the protestor noise. We still have people thanking us for doing this. While I don't like the war in Iraq, there's a time and place to exercise freedom of speech but I don't believe a funeral is one where any kind of protest like this should occur.
