Westboro Baptist church planned to disrupt service for nine-year-old Christina Taylor Green
The Arizona legislature has passed emergency legislation to prevent members of a church notorious for its anti-gay, anti-Catholic views from disrupting tomorrow’s funeral of a nine-year-old victim of Saturday’s shooting.
The church has gained notoriety for disrupting funerals of soldiers and people who have died of Aids. It claims the deaths are a punishment for society’s tolerance of homosexuality.
The new law, proposed by a state senator, Kyrsten Sinema, keeps members of the church at least 100 metres from the funeral.
