Patterson stands up against extremists in Veterans Cemetary Protest







Update: 3/26/06: TMR received word that the extremists who tried disturb the funeral were from a Kansas based hate group that masquerades as a church. They are not affiliated with liberals, moderates, or conservatives; just hate. All the more reason for them to be stopped from desecrating the funeral of a soldier who made the ultimate sacrifice.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Our good friend, true patriot, and fellow Aggie Jerry Patterson released the following statement today. It just goes to show that the battle against extremists is never-ending.




AUSTIN — Jerry Patterson, Commissioner of the Texas General Land Office, released the following statement today regarding the plans of a Topeka, Kansas-based church to protest at the funeral services of Pfc. Amy Duerksen. Pfc. Duerksen died in Iraq on March 11th.

“The policy at the Texas State Veterans Cemetery is that attendance at funerals is limited to friends and families of the fallen,” said Patterson, chairman of the Texas Veterans Land Board. “I will not allow a disturbance to degrade the sanctity of this hallowed ground. I respect the First Amendment right to protest, but I have a duty to protect the rights of those who have given their lives to defend American freedoms.”

Pfc. Duerksen graduated from Charis Christian High School in Copperas Cove in 2005 and joined the United States Army. She trained in signal systems equipment repair at Ft. Jackson, South Carolina and was stationed at Ft. Hood prior to her deployment to Iraq. She was promoted to Private First Class on March 1. Pfc. Duerksen comes from a military family, her father is a Chaplin in the U.S. Army.

“She is a hero and Texans are grateful to have soldiers like her, protecting the freedoms each of us holds dear,” Patterson said. “She will be buried with full military honors and in peace — her family deserves no less.”

Comments:
The protesters are not liberal. This group that has protested at other funerals is a Church, located in Topeka, Kansas. Their website is www.godhatesfags.com. They believe..

SODOMY IS AN ABOMINABLE SIN, WORTHY OF DEATH.

GOD HATES ALL WORKERS OF INIQUITY.

JESUS CHRIST DIED ONLY FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE.

ONLY GOD'S ELECT HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO BELIEVE.

SODOMITES ARE PROUD OF THEIR SIN ("GAY PRIDE"), AND IN THAT PRIDEFUL STATE THEY CANNOT REPENT - YOU CANNOT REPENT OF SOMETHING YOU'RE PROUD OF.

THE SODOMITES' ONLY HOPE IS TO HAVE THE UNAMBIGUOUS TRUTH PREACHED TO THEM, AND PERHAPS GOD WILL SOFTEN THEIR HEARTS AND GRANT THEM REPENTANCE TO DEPART FROM THEIR SIN AND NAME THE NAME OF CHRIST. NOT VERY LIKELY, THOUGH, SINCE GOD HAS GIVEN THEM UP.
THERE IS A HELL WHERE ALL IMPENITENT SINNERS WILL RESIDE FOR ALL ETERNITY. THAT INCLUDES SODOMITES (CALLED "DOGS").

I believe that it is important that we work to provide researched and truthful information. This group's actions are wrong and I don't know of any true conservative who would support their idealogy. However, while not a fan of liberal mindset, it is incorrect to label this goup as liberal.
 
Thanks for the background info on this hate group. I updated the post.
