    What is most notable about Sgt. Rogers’ funeral in Brandon, however, is what didn’t happen.

    You see, the troglodytes from Westboro Baptist Church had threatened to spew their poison at Sgt. Rogers’ funeral.

    But the Westboro mob wasn’t on the scene, and Sgt. Rogers was laid to rest without incident – thank God.

    Why weren’t there protestors?

    Planning ahead by the locals, as it turns out.

    From an Ole Miss sports message board, a tidbit of information…

    What a strange set of coincidences! :wink:

    Fred Phelps, Democrat activist.

    Anyone who has ever questioned the reason why the Westboro Baptist Church would do the protests they do, well, now you know.

    Did a Mississippi town beat the Westboro Baptist Church?

    Last month, someone posted on a University of Mississippi message board that local officials in Rankin County, Miss., had launched a covert effort to prevent the Westboro Baptist Church from protesting at the funeral of Marine Staff Sgt. Jason A. Rogers, who was killed in Afghanistan.

    The unnamed commenter claimed church members were unable to get out of their hotel parking lot because county pickup trucks were blocking them in. Those few members who made it to Rogers’ funeral were immediately detained by police and questioned for an unrelated matter before being released.

    For a moment, it seemed that someone had finally found a way to stop the Westboro Baptist Church from inflicting pain on families whose loved ones died while keeping the rest of us safe.

    But some quick checking revealed the whole story is a fantasy.

    Local officials told The Rumor Doctor that no protesters were arrested or booked into the county jail during Rogers’ funeral. The county district attorney’s office has not received any complaints from the Westboro Baptist Church.

    I want to believe! :frown:
