It's very true what a poster said above and I starred all of you whom I agree with and am still getting to the rest. Freedom of speech is wonderful
to have and we do NOT ever want to lose it. But when you take that freedom and twist it into a macabre, disgusting humanity loathing beast and still
hide behind it, there's a problem. And then some.
I agree that we don't want them dead. As in, I'd never wish death on anyone no matter what the sin/crime committed; however, there has to be a way
to stifle them. However, as Dr Love got me thinking (which I already knew but you know, it adds thought to the pile) if we stifle them, everyone
should be stifled then. If we say they can not do what they do, then NO one should 'do what they do'. We can't have it one sided, sadly.
Now in a perfect world, they'd be fully muted, have to disband, will be put in prison if they gather for any reason period, and all our military,
children, GLBT and so on would be free from their harassment fully. And everyone else would be exempt from said Law of Westboro. Their names and
pictures would be all over the news, newspapers, tv, billboards, all over the place so businesses would know to not serve them anything ever.
As I said, in a perfect world. But what applies to one should apply to all sadly and if we wish to keep our rights, those same rights have to extend
to all equally. They know how to NOT break any laws and therefore, can not be punished. They've been taken to courts before but always won. And
flaunted it later on as a victory that what they are doing is indeed correct.
Someone studied a LOT to be able to get that close to the line and still be 'safe'.
Sadly someone or some group WILL snap finally. And they'll sadly be the ones in the most trouble for doing so.
