Corporal Larry D. Harris to be honored by Bill Ritter, dishonored by Westboro Baptist Church

The extraordinary life and tragic death of Corporal Larry D. Harris, a Colorado Marine killed in Afghanistan, will be marked across the state tomorrow: Governor Bill Ritter has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff to mark his passing. Meanwhile, the evil bastards at Westboro Baptist Church plan to picket the funeral, for reasons that make no sense to anyone with a working brain stem. The contrast between the two press releases couldn't be starker. Read them below:


Gov. Bill Ritter has ordered that U.S. and Colorado flags be lowered to half staff at state and federal facilities throughout Colorado on Wednesday, July 14, 2010, in honor of Marine Cpl. Larry D. Harris, 24, of Thornton.

Cpl. Harris was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan while carrying a wounded Marine to safety July 1. Harris graduated from Boulder High School in 2003.

A funeral service is scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday at the Rising Star Missionary Baptist Church in Denver.


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 Cpl. Larry D. Harris, Jr.

Wed., July 14, at 9:15 a.m. Rising Star Missionary Baptist Church 1500 S. Dayton Street, Denver, CO

Cpl. Harris 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 Cpl. Harris 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.
