Seriously doubt the "W Church" is coming here - people spreading these rumors do NOT help anything. Getting all fired up is just what they want. IF they show up, the PG Riders will PEACEFULLY and discreetly take care of it.

I am a Ride Captain with the Patriot Guard Riders. There are several things I would like to say. First this will be my 46th mission. In those 45 missions I have seen "the church" one time. They were rendered insignificant by peaceful means. We have the law and our means of handling them. We also do not use their name as they not worth the air it would take to say the name.

Secondly, the chance they will be in Marietta is remote at best. The post a schedule of where they intend to picket and Marietta is not on that schedule. The are slated to be in Kansas City, Kansas on 31 March, 2013.

The Patriot Guard has been invited to participate in the funeral and escort by the family. If any other group would like to join us in honoring our fallen hero, they are welcome.

The is a funeral for a hero that gave his life for us and our country. Try to remember that.

May God bless our nation and LCPL Taylor. May he give the family peace.

AmeriSec and Anonymous will be meeting the Patriot Guard Riders at 9am. This information is PARAMOUNT. If you wish to attend, please do exactly as we and the Riders tell you. It is a very delicate matter. Thank you so much for your support.

Greetings, citizens of Marietta. I am Darstin of AmeriSec. It has recently come to my attention that Westboro Baptist Church plans to picket the funeral of USMC Lance Corporal Josh Taylor. I say*****NO! Not on my watch. I ask and urge all of my brothers and sisters out there, Anonymous or not, to join us outside Marietta High School in Marietta, OH to form a human shield, no, a WALL OF HONOR to ensure Westboro's noses stay out of the proceedings. Westboro is indeed infamous for their ability to talk the talk, and not walk the walk, but regardless I choose not to take chances with matters such as this. I ask you to do the same. Join me at 8am Saturday to prepare, and show Westboro what Anonymous, AmeriSec and Marietta are capable of. Westboro, you're on my turf now. Expect us.

I'd gladly do some jail time and bust some heads!! What morons!! - The only reason they have the right to assemble is because of our soldiers who fought and died TO KEEP OUR FREEDOM! If they're so involved with Christ they should act like it.

I wasn't planning on going to Josh's funeral, but am now if those people are coming. I will bring an umbrella with me and stand in front of "protesters" to block them being seen.. Anyone else on board with that??

We had threats from that so-called church when we lost one of our own. The local Veterans (motorcycle group) paved the way from funeral home to our local HS. The cowards never showed up. They just like to "blow".

A single disagree on every kind and loving post....looks like we have a WBC spy on the Times. All I can say is this Witch will be out to honor this wonderful, brave, loving, and deeply religious man. It is called respect, tolerance, and acceptance....something this group hasn't found. It is a shame our creed is Harm None....I can think of no other group that needs to be turned into toads than them...on Duck Dynasty property at that. Thank you Josh for all you have given. I am so sorry your life was cut short too soon. May your soul rest in peace and may your family remember your light during these dark days.

I believe the Patriot Riders will be on hand, and hopefully they (and the citizens of this city) will help dispose of any sick, cowardly Westboro SOBs who dare show their faces.

It is being reported that westboro baptist church will be in town to protest Josh's funeral... Marietta we need to do something to prevent this... I'm not sure what but Josh was far to great of a person to deserve this... Furthermore the last thing this family needs is to have these idiots protesting during Josh's ceremony...
