Mourners will gather at a memorial Mass Tuesday for victims of the Tucson, Arizona weekend shooting. The Mass will be held tonight at St. Odiilia Church in Tucson, Arizona – where 9-year-old shooting victim Christina Green had her First Communion a year ago. Unfortunately, the Westboro Baptist Church has targeted the service as their next picketing victim.
The Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, has made its name protesting the funerals of people who died of AIDS, gay people, soldiers and even Coretta Scott King. The church recently announced its intention to picket the funeral of the 9-year-old girl, Greene, who lost her life in this tragic event.
But this time, people are putting their feet down. They’re planning an ”angel action” – with 8 by 10 foot “angel wings” worn by participants and used to shield mourners from pickets.
This is absolutely horrible. Something legal needs to be done to the Westboro Baptist Church. How do you feel about the “angel action”? Do you think it will work?
