Westboro Baptist Church & Genaro Bedoy Funeral – The Gathering!
So I’ve talked to several people about what is to be expected this Saturday, when Genaro Bedoy is laid to rest, and when Westboro Baptist Church is to protest at the funeral. It’s going to be real touch & go, so to speak, as to where the picketers will be located, so the best that can be done, is to put a plan in action, and just see what happens when the time and day comes.
The information was released last night, and goes as follows:
The Bedoy Family will now be able to give their last respects and goodbyes to Genaro this Saturday at St. Thomas Catholic Church off of 41st and Coullter. The services will be held at 10:00 am.
We ask that if you are going to help protect the family from the Westboro protesters, that you stay away from the funeral itself. This is a time that the family and friends will need for mourning and to say goodbye.
The burial will be held at the Memory Gardens with full military honors.
From what I can tell from the videos that I’ve watched online, they don’t really go to the funeral homes or churches, but more at the actual burial site itself.
They have to abide by a 1,000ft proximity, so they could be anywhere within that general vicinity, so there really is no telling at this point.
I’ve talked to several people on Facebook, and also had an invite sent to me.

There will be a gathering at 9am Saturday at McDonald lake at 45th & Coulter. A lot of people think they won’t even show up.
Even if they don’t, this will be a great place to show your support and honor our hero and fallen soldier, Genaro Bedoy. If they do show up, you can bet somebody at this memorial gathering will find out, and lead the crowd to where Westboro is set up at to protest. If you’re out to show your support, I think this would be a great place to start! It is requested that everyone bring an American Flag with them I know I’ll have mine!
