People of Weston foil Westboro Baptist Church’s funeral picket

Not every town is willing to let the funeral crashers of Topeka’s homophobic church spoil a soldier’s farewell. The people of Weston, Missouri, stood up to the Westboro Baptist Church, which had planned to picket the funeral of Sgt. 1st Class C.J. Sadell on Saturday.

Sadell was wounded in an ambush in Afghanistan on October 5; the 34-year-old married father of two died on October 24. Fox 4’s cameras rolled as hundreds of the townspeople took to the streets.
