Several have asked to see what it was Senator Eric Johnson was responding to in relation to the Westboro Baptist Church. It was, to say the least, a vile release from the church calling on its members and others to protest at the funeral of a soldier killed in Iraq. The soldier was buried in Hinesville, GA.
Senator Johnson’s office was kind enough to send me a copy of the Westboro Baptist Church “news release” that a concerned citizen forwarded to the senator. A copy of it is here.
