The Rev. Phelps, pastor of Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas, does not attend the funerals to comfort family members, however.

He is there to express thanks for the soldiers' deaths.

Phelps and his followers believe that the deaths of American soldiers is God's retribution for society's acceptance of gay Americans.

Although Phelps says he's targeting servicemen and women of all sexual orientations, he's perhaps best known for showing up with vicious signs at the funerals of AIDS victims, as well as gay victims of a hate crimes.
