    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.
    I won't react in any way at all, as I didn't know him, and I don't care. I don't celebrate the deaths of people, regardless of my personal feelings about them. I didn't celebrate the deaths of Bin Laden or Saddam Hussein. Why would I celebrate the death of someone without all that blood on his hands? He may have been hateful, and he may have been crazy, but that is nothing unusual in the world.

    You don't own anything. Phelps was picketing gay people long before he started picketing soldiers. Non vets can't understand.

    I say we all ignore it.

    Then, after the hoopla dies down, and when nobody's looking, sneak away and go piss on his grave.

    To answer the OP, I think we should leave it alone. To protest his funeral would make us no better than him.

    Just heard on ABC News (radio) that Phelps has died. They handled it PERFECTLY.

    (Paraphrasing) "Fred Phelps, leader of WBC, known for protesting..., had died. More snow this weekend..."

    Nice. Acknowledge it, don't dwell on it.
    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.

    It appears that's true.

    I'm completely with you. Always speak good of the dead. He's dead. Good. (I may have used that line once or twice before)

    I literally laughed out loud.
