Funeral Protest Bill

Congressman Mike Rogers is working to put a stop to protesters who show up at military funerals.

He introduced his bill in Flushing two weeks ago. Demonstrators from a church in Kansas have been protesting outside funerals all around the country, claiming God is killing the soldiers in Iraq because they defend a country that tolerates homosexuality.

Congressman Roger's bill would ban any protests within 500-feet of the funeral for an hour before and an hour after the service.

The bill would only apply to military funerals at federal cemeteries.
