    That's cool! Being in the military, I get choked up at times reading articles like that because it's nice to see that people still give a crap about our soldiers.

    Thanks!

    Sorry TAG. The Phelps aspect of this story is old news. They've been protesting at soldiers' funerals for a while now. I don't think they even protest at the funerals of homosexuals anymore.

    I'm glad the bikers are helping make things a little more bearable for the families, but I'm sure it still feels like a 3-ring circus instead of a funeral.

    I hear ya Chuck, and I knew about the Phelps asses for a while, but I just liked the twist that the bikers were making their own statement that the funerals should be to show respect for those that die for our country, not as a place to rally for some unrelated cause.

    It IS a shame that it's such a spectacle, but i'm glad to see that part of it is b/c of people rallying for the right beliefs instead of some very-off-the-wall theory like those idiots at King's funeral.

    God bless our soldiers, their families and the Patriot Guard Riders.

    My feelings for Phelps & co. are probably best left unsaid.

    Good on them. The bikers that is.
    As for the Rev. Phelps, well unfortunately in a
    society that values freedom of speach, assholes
    like this always show up sooner or later.

    Phred Felps (I refuse to call him Rev..) just has so many issues going on, I wouldn't even know where to start. His message is NOT christian, he is obviously demented ("the preacher doth protest too much" comes to mind), and he is evil, hateful, and sociopathic. Too bad that there are actually some freaks out there, besides his family/church, who take him seriously. Although I don't believe in god/goddess/afterlife, I can only hope that somewhere along the line, he and his followers get sevenfold what they have done in this lifetime.

    Well said DC. Unfortunately it is people like him that give religious people a bad name among some people.

    Guess it's never inappropriate to throw blows at the king. Keep voting Democrat though, black people.
