Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has signed the bill regulating funeral picketing. We'll see what happens. The last time Kansas tried to do this, the law got tossed out by a court.
The fact that people would picket funerals -- anyone's funeral -- is appalling, but that's classic behavior for Fred Phelps and the handful of family and followers who attend his Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka.
They view God as a violent, abusive father. ("You cannot understand God's love, until you understand God's hate.") The sad fact is that they have no understanding of love or compassion because they are so fixated on hate. What a horrible, small-minded God they have.
I blogged about Fred and his obsession with picketing funerals in Yet Another Fred Phelps Commentary.
