If it disturbs mourners, it should be harassment. The group is targeting specific funerals, and therefore it should meet the legal definition of harassment.
    The funeral home should seek a restraining order against the protesters in order to prevent the harassment. I do think that the judge was right in striking down a ban on protesting but the laws preventing harassment should be able to prevent these idiots from spreading their gospel of hate at these funerals.

    If the protester's god tells them to inflict distress on people at a time of grief, then their god sucks.

    WBC most assuredly does have the right to do this. Its wrong of them, horrible, disgusting, and pathetic on their part. Put me on a Jury and I'd probably never convict someone who punched one of them out, "temporary insanity". But in regards to the actual law, and respecting the constitution because I am not a "when-it-benefits-me-constructionist"...this is the correct ruling.
    Better than that...... trip and just so happen to give one of them a good solid head butt, right in the snozz.

    Any way to encourage this custom again?

    Re: Judge: State ban on protests at military funerals unconstitutional

    I wasn't going to respond to this topic because the Church has the right to protest regardless how disgusting an un-American I see it to be.

    I have decided to chime in because I felt the need to defend Christians.

    Not the Westboro Baptist Church of so-called Pastor Fred Phelps mind you because I can't for the life of me see anything about this radical bunch that even remotely resembles any Christian Church I have ever attended.

    I don't see this as anything but a Cult, not unlike the Snake handlers and poison drinkers we see on TV but would never associate with.

    This is despicable mostly because these young lives they are mocking and protesting against are the ones who protect these wackos right to be fools.



    Those who stand for nothing fall for anything like these fools who fell for a load of crap from a charlatan

    This one of if not the most Anti-American posts I have ever seen, and it's pure "bovine scatology."

    Heck with defending Christians, after these idiots, someone has to defend the human species.

    You could replace the WBC followers with the people who follow Bin Laden and his ilk. It's the same thing, brainwashing using a twisted form of religion, just with different goals in mind. Horrible people who do a tremendous disservice to their respective religions, the whole lot of them.

    The way to counter, the Westboro Baptist Church is to organize a counter-Phelps protest comprised of hot chicks making out.

    Hot dudes making out, too. Fair and balanced!

    Personally, I think it would work a lot better if you had really ugly, fat chicks and old sweaty dudes making out, with as little clothing as possible on.
