ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOX) – Members of the Westboro Baptist Church plan to protest in two communities on Thursday.
Thats the group that lines the street with members at military funerals to protest gays in service.
On Thursday they’ll be in Bethalto at the funeral of Lance Corporal Kenneth Corzine who died on Christmas Eve from injuries suffered earlier.
Shirley Phelps-Roper says that same day they will be in the city of St. Charles to protest the recent adoption of an ordinance against such protests.
“This nation in violation of the first amendment is trying to squish this little church like a bug” said Phelps-Roper.
Military veterans plan to confront the protestors at both locations.
