Funeral Nets Two Arrests

Last updated on Monday, July 17, 2006

(HUNTINGTON) - Two men were arrested as part of a counter-protest at a military funeral for an Indiana soldier who was killed overseas.

About 100 people showed up to protest a demonstration by the Westboro Baptist church, a Kansas-based congregation that claims military fatalities are part of god's judgment against the U.S. for its support of homosexuality.

One of the men arrested charged the Westboro protestors, while the other threw a water bottle at them.
