I don't entirely agree with the mantra that to deny WBC their alleged version of free speech will lead to a slippery slope of denying others their
freedom of speech, and as many others have pointed out with freedom of speech comes responsibility, that's why Norway made it very clear that they
did not support WBC's version of freedom of speech and that by protesting at any of the funerals they would risk prosecution...notably, cowards that
the WBC are, did not turn up, proving that they don't really, truly believe the bile they spout, because if they truly did, then they would risk
prosecution to make their point!
Therein lies a particularly good reason to deny them the freedom to carry out such protests as they are not fighting for the freedom to express their
beliefs, they're just simply "bear-baiting" to get a response (and the opportunity to sue people who "violate" their rights) and I'm sure that a
good lawyer could argue that point in a court of law.
Though I am not an advocate of violence of any sort, I do wish that "God" would visit a terrible tragedy upon their family and then everyone could
turn up at the funeral with banners proclaiming that "God hates WBC" and when they react in the normal human way to the protesters, sue them for
every penny they have on the basis that they have violated the protesters freedom of speech....
Sorry just ranting because these "people" make my skin crawl
