    The 1st Amendment gives them the right to call themselves Naptists.

    Are we arguing or agreeing?

The Supreme Court, both the ideologically left and right, ruled on the right to protest, not the content of the protest. You should be happy that your Supreme Court doesn't make value judgements on the content of protest - I wish Canada had the same common sense justices.
    I have been thinking that too. They are disgusting and lowest of low - maybe tied with KKK - but the important thing is free speech! You cannot deny theirs at the same time, as in the current climate, condemn the anti-second amendment folks. Best way to deal is a peaceful counter-protest.

    I was going to gloat to you people that I was going to make a donation, to WBC, in honor of some of you having no respect for free speech. But I rather give it to the homeless man down the street, so he can buy himself some crack
