I agree with Senator Bob Casey, who was reported in the Philadelphia Inquirer that the plans of this group are "disgusting" and that they should do the following, "The protesters should stay in Kansas and pray for the Clouse family.

For those of you who are not Christian, I want to assure you that these people are not acting as Christians are taught to act by biblical teachings. These people act entirely outside of any Christian faith. Further, please do not try to judge Christians by the vocal minorities at either extreme of the spectrum that are noisy enough to draw public attention to themselves. They do not represent the faith in its entirety or its complexity. Most Christians are hard at work behind the scenes helping others and leading them by deed and word to a better life offered by God through Christ.
