The Supreme Court rules 8 to 1, that the funeral protests done by the Westboro Baptist church are part of their 1st amendment rights. While I agree with the 1st amendment, I do not agree with the Westboro Baptist Church's views. I have many friends and family serving in the military, and if one of them were to get killed serving this country, and the God Hates Fags people were protesting their funeral, I don't know what I'd do. The Supreme Court says that the protests are OK as long as they are at a reasonable distance.
If that is the case, it probably won't be long before a family member of a fallen soldier, stays "at a reasonable distance away" with a .308. I can't believe that nothing like this has happened yet. I know there has been scuffles between the church members and bikers. But it is amazing that none of the God Hates Fags people have been killed yet.
Do you think it is right for this "CHURCH" to protest at soldier's funerals?
