Topeka protesters show up in Cleveland

Shirley Phelps-Roper held a bright neon painted sign that read "Thank God for 9-11" and claimed "You've got a bunch of lying false prophets that are running the churches around here and being paid to tell people that God loves them," Roper said.

Another protester, Katherine Hockenbarger,claimed the 9-11 attack was divine retribution.

"That was but a small sign of the doom of this nation," she said. "You can't live your life anyway you want to and expect to go to heaven."

Yet another sickening display by WBC. Will Bill O'Reilly do a week worth of segments on them?
