To the editor:
Columnist Michael Smerconish (Journal-World, March 20) encounters a few words he doesn’t like on our picket signs, and his raw raging rebellion goes off the chain.
His rage makes him lie. No one disrupted a funeral. We stood 1,000 feet away from the funeral, with two large groups of other protesters with flags and signs between us and the building. No one going to the funeral saw or heard us. These soldiers’ funerals are big, splashy, sloppy, self-indulgent, noisy affairs, with politicians, media, citizens and bikers piled up outside with flapping flags and mouths.
Why you’re angry is because we refuse to call someone who fought for this godless nation a hero. And because we tell you plainly they are dying for your sins! Everyone is talking about these soldiers. The only way the Supreme Court can say we can’t is by uprooting the Constitution entirely.
This nation’s doom is imminent. If you have an ounce of sense, you’ll quit worrying about whether you’re going to get relief for your aching conscience from a court and start worrying about how you’re going to explain your and this nation’s proud, unrelenting sin. Stop trying to silence words you don’t like while pretending this nation protects religious liberties, and obey God.
