Failures of the Westboro Baptist Church to Carry Out Their Threats

Introduction:

The Westboro Baptist Church has gained much media attention by protesting funerals in the past several years. To hear the media tell it, the Westboro Baptist Church is constantly picketing funerals and other services and events around the country. Unfortunately, all the media coverage is based on the protests they do manage to pull off. Rarely is it mentioned of all the times the Westboro Baptist Church fails to follow through on their threats to protest funerals.

Heath Ledger

The Westboro Baptist Church failed to protest the funeral of Academy Award winner Heath Ledger. It is unclear as to why the Westboro Baptist Church did no travel to Australia for his services. The Westboro Baptist Church opposed the film "Brokeback Mountain."

Natasha Richardson

The Westboro Baptist Church failed to protest the funeral of actress Natasha Richardson, the wife of Liam Neeson. The actress was killed in a skiing accident that the Westboro Baptist Church claims was a punishment from God.

Shane Reed

The Westboro Church failed to protest the funeral of Shane Reed. The young man from Bixby, Oklahoma was killed in a motorcycle accident. Despite having 10 members in Bixby at the time of his funeral, they did not picket. Margie J. Phelps stated on Twitter it was due to too many "God smacks." Perhaps the Westboro Baptist Church was more concerned with the 300 plus counter-protesters in Bixby giving them a "Westboro Baptist Church smack."

Kali Hull

The Westboro Baptist Church failed to protest the funeral of Kali Hull, a young woman killed in the same accident as Shane Reed. The Westboro Baptist Church stated her death was caused by God because He hates Oklahoma and Oklahoma Children. Shirley Phelps-Rogers said they didn't protest this funeral because the funeral of Elizabeth Taylor took precedence.

Elizabeth Taylor

The Westboro Baptist Church failed to protest the funeral of Elizabeth Taylor. Despite missing the opportunity to picket another funeral to protest this Academy Award winning actress, the Westboro Baptist Church was once again failed to protest. They opposed Elizabeth Taylor's tireless work to help those with AIDS.




Final Thoughts

These are just a few of the failures of the Westboro Baptist Church to follow through on their threats to protest funerals. Feel free to to breathe a sigh of relief the next time you hear the threats from the Westboro Baptist Church. Chances are, the Westboro Baptist Church will, once again, fail to carry out their threats. And, if they do, they are always met by counter-protesters who do a dandy job allowing the family to mourn in peace.
