    I was thinking that a poster reading: "Proof. God Is A Fag" held up at his funeral would have a certain satirical impact.

    Nothing. If anything it should be to send them well wishes and respect the dead.

    Don't lower yourself to their level.

    I say we ignore it. Any attention whatsoever, especially any type of protest, will please the remaining members. I don't want to give them the satisfaction.

    We won't, of course, but that's what would be done if it were my call.


    Why is it even a question?

    Why would anyone want to clime into the gutter they've been disgusted with? Payback? That's as bad as them.

    You would see the whole church go up in spontaneous combustion at that point.

    No, of course not you don't go protest his funeral. That lacks all originality.

    You simply go to your local outdoor/gun shop and buy a few bottles of skunk scent. Then a couple hours before the service you spray it around the grave site. It should leave a fine scent for their farewell to Freddie.

    'Course attending the funeral would also mean having to travel to Topeka, when I'd much rather be in Damascus or Ciudad Juárez.

    Since the one laudable achievement to his name will be dying, we should applaud his last ditch success (no pun).

    You guys are too kind... I say protest the hell out of that funeral. Make sure to bring your colorful signs with lovely things written on them!.. Maybe, just maybe, they will finally get the pain and suffering they have caused countless other people when one of their own is disrespected in such a way.

    No offense intended, but this is just fantasy.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
