What an awesome display of their First Amendent rights.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.[/
Should free speech be allowed to be used as a shield by people who intend to cause suffering?

One more stupid protest from those SOBs.
Controversial Westboro Baptist Church Plans Protest in Joplin
The controversial Westboro Baptist Church is planning to protest President Obama's visit to Joplin, Missouri Sunday.
On its website, the church writes, "Thank God for 125 dead in Joplin." Church members claim Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has attacked them by promoting laws banning them from protesting at soldiers' funerals.
President Obama is planning to visit the tornado-ravaged city this Sunday. A memorial is also planned that day for the 125 people who lost their lives in the tornado.
The Westboro Baptist Church believes tragedies like the tornado are God's punishment on Americans for accepting homosexuality.
I have a bet with one of my friends of when someone will go postal against those people... this might be it.
But I do not wish harm on them since they are obviously a plant to create restrictions on the first amendment... I just cannot believe there would be people sick enough to do what they are doing. They are the ONLY group in the ENTIRE USA doing this kind of crap. If they weren't a plant, there would be many more.edit on 26-5-2011 by Vitchilo because: (no reason given)
I always wonder why they do not show up at the trials of people like Casey Anthony or Green River Killer or any number of murderers and pedophiles and other convicted scum of the Earth.

Actually you are wrong. The US is one of the only countries in the world where hate speech is protected.
