    Oh, I know, and I support the decision in concept. Just brought up the part that still bugs me.

    It won't end well for these folks. I predict a bag of baseball bats and/or worse will find them one day, and while entirely unlawful, these folks are truly begging for it.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I think this decision could have been very dangerous for them. It is not hard for me to imagine a soldier or marine with PTSD who reads about this after having lost a good friend or more due to this war who just snaps because their friend's/friends' family and friends have to endure, had to endure, or might have endure these guys at their loved one's funeral and deciding that it would be very much worth it to either bomb their church or community or just gun them all down (or at least as many as he can get). Heck, he wouldn't even have to have PTSD, he could just be really pissed off and claim it as a defense, if they catch him. Most likely the guy would be one of the most liked criminals in a very long time, if the police even bother to do a thorough investigation to find the guy. Plus, it is also likely that they might have a hard time finding the real perpetrator because I could also see a lot of guys falsely confessing to such an act. And he would probably have all his legal fees paid for as well.

    They most certainly do. Someone should suggest that the bikers congregate around their church on Sunday and rev their bikes as loud as they can, let's see how they like that.

    I thought Roberts (SCOTUS) was a conservative? Oh, and by the way, the writer of this article calls himself "Evil Teabagger" and is very much conservative.

    Guess who now has egg on their face?

    The court voted 8-1 in favor of the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan. The decision upheld an appeals court ruling that threw out a $5 million judgment to the father of a dead Marine who sued church members after they picketed his son’s funeral.

    Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the opinion for the court. Justice Samuel Alito dissented.

    Roberts said free speech rights in the First Amendment shield the funeral protesters, noting that they obeyed police directions and were 1,000 feet from the church.

    I agree with this ruling

    Re: Supreme Court rules in favor of WBC

    I have often wondered why almost everyone agrees that the wording of the first amendment makes it clear that all speech is to be protected while at the same time many of those same people have no problem limiting other peoples 2nd amendment rights when the writing in that one is at least as clear if not even more so. Kind of funny how that works isn't it.
    President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."
