Westboro Baptist Church to Picket Ryan Dunn's Funeral

by at . Comments

The Westboro Baptist Church is at it again.

The notorious, radical Kansas group responsible for protests at the funerals of gay rights supporters, Iraq war veterans, Elizabeth Edwards and innocent children alike, announced plans to picket the funeral of Jackass star Ryan Dunn.

In the news release, titled "Ryan Dunn is in hell!" Westboro calls for the picket due to "vulgar stunts" and involvement in MTV's Jackass franchise.

Dunn, R.

The 34-year-old Dunn perished in a car crash early Monday morning, along with friend Zachary Hartwell. Dunn was driving drunk and very fast.

Ryan's death has generated controversy in part due to comments by Roger Ebert, who criticized his apparent drunk driving the very same day.

It's clear Dunn's bad decision making played a role in his demise, along with Hartwell's. But both men deserved to be buried in peace and remembered fondly by those close to them without Westboro Baptist Church's meddling.

We're not advocating any sort of violent confrontation by any means ... but let's just say if Bam Margera and the Jackass crew decided to f*%k with the Westboro peeps via some elaborate pranks, we wouldn't stand in their way.

These people make me sick. I hope the rest of the jackass crew give those assholes a taste of what they do best...fuck shit up. Yes they do hide behing their kids and those kids are just as fucked in the head as the rest of them. It would be awesome so see a spray of bullets range out over all of them. Let these families lay their loved ones to rest peacefully. R.I.P. Gone but never forgotten.

This is so appalling!!!! Although his bad decision making led to both his and his friends' demise, this group has absolutely no business to be picketing at ANYBODY'S funeral service! This should be a time for his family to mourn him and also to celebrate his life...no matter what he did throughout his life or how he chose to live his life! My thoughts and prayers go out to his family!

Living in West Virginia WBBC visits here often picketing miners funerals all the time. They are out for attention and make money from people by suing cities for any harm done to them at their pickets. When the Upper Big Branch Mine disaster happened last year they came to picket and got no one because no one paid them any mind. 100's of people stood on the lawn of our capitol building and westboro had to stand on the other side of the street. They bring their children to these pickets just so no one try's to harm them. They use their children as shields. While I hope they don't make it to the funeral I also hope Bam and every Jackass family member has been givin legal counsel to stay away from them and to not encourage their ignorance.

The hypocrites need to read that bible in their hands instead of using it to push "their" beliefs, not God's. God may not like everything we do, but he loved us enough to give us the freedom of choice, and he is the only one who can judge us. As for Mr. Dunn, what happens to him now is between him and God, not the church and his loved ones.

So I live here in West Goshen and I already know people who know people at all the local hotels who are just waiting to make a call. I have to believe that when the WBC crazies get here, they will find that they are not in Kansas anymore. I hope their leader can find some red ruby slippers to get them the f*** out of here before they all get curbed with the trucks of the mourners skateboards.
