The Westboro Baptist "Church" spreads unnecessary, hateful messages by picketing at the funerals of fallen service members, carrying pickets that read "Pray for more dead soldiers", and other hate speech. Not only is this disrespectful and highly immoral, and does NOT carry on the message of Christianity whatsoever, but it causes so much hurt and pain to the already-grieving families attending. 

I don't understand how the existence of this church is legal in America, and it has been made known that they are coming to Chattanooga to picket the funerals of the fallen Marines of the 16 July 2015 tragedy. 

If their awful presence is made illegal in our town, or whatever town the funerals are to be held, we can save the families a lot of unnecessary negativity, as well as possibly save the lives of WBC members. As much as I hate them, our city has seen enough tragedy this past week.

To the governments of both Hamilton county and the City of Chattanooga, I urge you to make illegal their presence in our beautiful city.
