Counter-demonstrators shout the pledge of allegiance at members of controversial preacher Fred Phelps family as they protest across the street against abortion and homosexuality a few blocks outside the College Hill United Methodist Church before the funeral for assassinated abortion doctor George Tiller in Wichita, Kansas on June 6, 2009.  Tiller was gunned down while serving as an usher at his church last Sunday by Scott Roeder, who is now in custody, in a political crime with reverberations across the region and the country; Tiller's Wichita clinic had previously served as a culture wars flashpoint in the 1990s.
