Church to protest military Mass in Pittston, let’s show
our support for our own. Never have I ever asked our community to unite on such an event such as this. The news media is reporting the West Boro Church plans on protesting the funeral mass outside of St. John’s Church on William St for SPC Dale Kridlo of Hughestown. The mass is scheduled for Wednesday at 9:45AM.
I am calling on all of Greater Pittston, Luzerne County
and NEPA to show up and show our support for our fallen hero who was recently killed in the line of duty while serving in the Middle East.
Please, don’t even think about violence. We need to show our support of solidarity for one of own in a peaceful and respectful manner. What we need to do is show up very early to take up every square inch so they can’t get anywhere near the church.

AND FROM ONE OF OUR POSTERS
Tonights news indicates that the crazy christian demonstrators from Bloody Kansas are coming to our area to protest at the services in Pittston for a fallen soldier. I believe action should be taken and suggest we do what citizens in a small midwestern town did. They surrounded the Funeral home and the church with a human shield and large American flags blocking visual access for the "protestors".
I would volunteer and I feel sure many others would. Perhaps since this is your home turf, Lulac could play a part by calling on all readers to participate. These people are among the many who give Christianity a bad name. If we cant stop them we should at least do our best to nullify, as quietly as possible, their misguided and I believe criminal efforts. Personally I think they should be run out of town and not allowed to continue anywhere. We dont need these sick, heartless bastards here and the family certainly should not be forced to deal with the apparently legal, but insane actions of a few demented fools.
Something needs to be done. What the hell is wrong with these people and what God do they pray to? This situation really pisses me off and I know I'm not alone!
God bless the family and friends of a young man who did his duty as he saw it and served his country.
