Penn State’s Beaver Stadium was lit up last night in remembrance of Joe Paterno. What better way to show support for the Paterno family than to light up a stadium that he helped build.

Side Note: Westboro Baptist Church is planning to protest Joe Pa’s funeral.

I hope these idiots all die in a fiery crash on the way to their protest.

The Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, notorious for its anti-gay and funeral picketing, plans to picket Joe Paterno’s funeral.

Margie Phelps (pictured), the wife of church leader Fred Phelps, sent several tweets Sunday making her stance on Paterno quite clear:

    Look lady!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Each individual interprets information differently and when you have a stupid idiot such as McQuery who is the guiltiest person for 2 reasons. 1) He never did a darn thing when he supposedly saw it. 2) Because he did not provide details other than what would be considered as inappropriate. McQuery did not use the word rape or nothing. So let me ask you this since you sound like an experet what would you have done? A school teacher for example is probably told to inform the principal when receiving that kind of information. That is exactly what Paterno did, informed his superiors the information he received which was vague to begin with. 1 of his superiors was the head of Campus Police and yes an investigation should have been done, however that individual chose not to do anything with the information. Was Paterno suppose to hold a gun to his head and make him do something? Then lets back up to the question of how in the world this was able to last so long especially during the time it was occuring the schools were empashizing and teachingt kids about sexual predators and what to do. Seriously this many kids and parents involved over this amount of time and not a single one of them could have prevented this from happening to another kid? A childs pattern changes when something like this happens and you mean to tell me their parents were not smart enough to see the change in the behavioral patterns especially around Sandusky.

    Joe Paterno was not guilty of omission. He informed his superiors the same exact information that he received and requested they take a look into it. Should the staff have been better trained on how to handle these issues better, yes indeed! If Joe Paterno would have kept it to himself, yes he would have been guilty of omission!

    So how did God appoint you to tell everybody he was in hell? Quit judging things from an armchar. How do you know Joe Paterno did not ask for forgiveness from his heart to God during his final days? You claim to be a Christian then start acting like 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Let the man have his respects paid in peace. Would you like it if people came to your funeral to picket for being judgemental. The only being that is to the judging is god himself not man nor woman.
