When students at Texas A&M University in College Station, TX, learned that members of the Westboro Baptist Church planned a protest at the funeral of a soldier who was killed in active duty, they formed a “maroon wall” around the church to shelter the family and friends of the fallen soldier. The university’s colors are maroon and white. Lt. Col. Roy Tisdale, a Texas A&M alumnus, passed away on June 28, after being shot during a training exercise at Fort Bragg, NC. The Westboro gang has made it a habit of protesting at military funerals, claiming that troop deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq are God’s retribution for America’s tolerance of abortion, homosexuality and other sins. In the end, though, they didn’t show up at A&M. One of these days, however, they’re going to protest at the wrong funeral and end up leaving in body bags. Then, we’ll all know that there is a God!
