Human Shield Planned For Westboro Baptist Church Protest At Palm Bay Soldier's Funeral

PALM BAY, Florida -- According to a Facebook Event created by Charly Stalcup and Kelsey Gentry, organizers are planning to create "a human shield to protect the family of Spc. Justin Horsley, a Hero who gave the ultimate sacrifice to his country" on August 8, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. in Palm Bay, Florida.
The creation of this 'human shield' is in response to the Westboro Baptist Church's announcement last week of its plans to protest the funeral of a Palm Bay, Florida soldier who was killed in action in Afghanistan.

Westboro's press release says that the church's protest will contend that God is not on America's side any more and 'thank God for IED [improvised explosive devices].' 

According to the Department of Defense, an IED took the life of  21-year-old U.S. Army Spc. Justin L. Horsley of Palm Bay on July 22, 2012 in Afghanistan.

This is not the first time that Westboro Baptist Church has protested in Brevard County.  In April 2011, the group protested outside Kennedy Space Center, Florida during the launch of Space Shuttle Atlantis commanded by Mark Kelley,  husband of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords who was shot in Tucson, Arizona.  

During that protest, the group said, "We will remind her that she was shot for her support of sodomy, abortion and idolatry. She used her platform as a politician to support and promote fags, the killing of unborn children and the worship of the military mutts."

However, that launch was scrubbed and rescheduled which resulted in a smaller crowd than the group had expected.  Brevard Times then contacted Westboro Baptist Church to see whether they would return for the next launch attempt. Westboro spokeman Steve Drain said, ""If our schedule allows for it, we will be back."  The group did not return for the next launch attempt.

The full text of the Westboro Baptist Church press release follows:

Palm Bay Soldier Killed In Action

Military funerals have become pagan orgies of
idolatrous blasphemy, where they pray to the
dunghill gods of Sodom & play taps to a fallen fool.

This message to be preached in respectful, lawful proximity
to the memorial of Spc. Justin L. Horsley
Wednesday, August 8, at 12:15 p.m.
Ammen Family Cremation & Funeral Home,
950 Malabar Road SE, Palm Bay, FL
Spc. Horsley gave his life for the Constitutional right of WBC to
warn America. To deny us our First Amendment rights is to
declare to the world that Spc. Horsley died in vain, and that
America is a nation of sodomite hypocrites.
“Except the Lord build the house, They labor in vain that build it;
Except the Lord keep the city, The watchman waketh but in
vain.” Psa. 127:1.

The Lord no longer builds the American house; nor does the Lord
watch over and protect America. These soldiers are dying for
the homosexual and other sins of America. God is now
America’s enemy, and God Himself is fighting against America.
