Church Group to Protest Marine's Funeral

by Larry Little

Not everyone who is expected to be at Marine Corporal Jacob Neal's funeral will be supporting the family. Members of the Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas are expected to protest at Neal's funeral, according to a press release on their web site.

The religious group believes service men and women are dying because God is mad at the United States for allowing homosexuality. The church's web site also blames homosexuals for inventing explosive devices which are now being used by insurgents.

Neal's funeral is on Monday at 2 p.m. at the Crockett Civic Center.
