The evil Westboro ghouls will stay away from 9-year-old Christina Green’s funeral in Arizona, but as a result of a “deal,” they will get increased exposure of their vile views — and they still plan on protesting other Tucson massacre victims’ memorial services.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports:

Topeka’s Westboro Baptist Church won’t picket the funeral of a 9-year-old girl killed in Saturday’s shooting rampage in Tucson, Ariz., in exchange for getting airtime on two radio stations, a church spokeswoman said Wednesday morning.

Church members earlier had announced plans to picket the funeral of the girl, Christina Taylor Green, who was one of six people killed during Saturday’s shooting spree that also wounded U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz.

However, Shirley Phelps-Roper, a spokeswoman for the Westboro church, said KXXT-AM, a 50,000-watt radio station in the Phoenix suburb of Tolleson, Ariz., and Canadian station CFNY-FM, 102.1 “The Edge” in Toronto, offered to give the Topeka church airtime to discuss its views in exchange for its members not picketing the girl’s funeral.

….Phelps-Roper said she and three other church members would be in Tucson to picket Friday’s funeral of U.S. District Judge John M. Roll, who also was slain on Saturday.

The Arizona legislature passed emergency legislation to try and preempt the Westboro vultures’ demonstrations within a 1,000-foot radius, but the “church” says the new law won’t stop them:

She said the Arizona law, which prohibits protests at or near funeral sites, would be of little consequence to herself or other picketers, who planned to be at least 1,000 feet from the church where Roll’s funeral will take place.

Citizen guardians plan to protect federal judge John Roll’s family and friends on Friday.
