Stand Up to Hate (Westboro Baptist) protest

Last Sunday two small boys Charlie and Braeden Powell were murdered by their father in a horrific fire in Graham, Washington. The funeral for these two young boys is Saturday at 11 AM at Life Center Church (So. 17th and Union in Tacoma, Washington)

Westboro Baptist Church the congregation that has been protesting military funerals because the US is a "gay" nation has vowed to come to Tacoma to do the same thing. Part of it is because it is a very high profile funeral and the other part is that Governor Gregoire will be sigining a bill allowing same sex marriage in Washington on Monday morning.

The faith community of Pierce County through Associated Ministries has called on people of faith and others to join them as a witnesses against the hate of this group and also to preseverve the solemnity and dignity of the family's grieving process. We will meet with any and all groups who have those goals at 9AM at the Tacoma Elks Club (please park in the southwest part of the parking lot) we will meet in the Lodge room and proceed to accross from the Church at 10AM To bear witness to the greater community that we wish to heal and not divide.

1. I wish I could be there to help --we had a confrontation with them here several years ago--not

at a funeral--they were protesting at a high school that was going to allow a gay student alliance.

one of the few times I was proud of this community- over a thousand people showed up to tell them they were not welcome.
