Kind of funny how that works isn't it.
    I think the law has developmed this way because speech doesn't interfere with other rights/interests to as great a degree as guns, religion, etc. do. "Words can never hurt me" and whatnot.

    Second, throw all the Supreme Court in jail for incompetence.

    So much for grooming people their whole lives just to be Chief Justice. Roberts loves the Klan and upholds bigots rights. Like Thomas, Roberts is just a flunkie for the people who put him in his position, the NeoCon/Christian Right.

    Aren't we glad that confirmation hearings are so substantive?

    We have roughly 12 unqualified political lackys.

    But putting restrictions on my what I kind of gun I can buy and where I can carry it for sure interferes with my constitutional right. What makes my right to own a gun less important than other peoples rights to say what ever they want.
    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."

    You might want to give your statement some thought......it's a little confusing!

    Sometimes, and I mean sometimes free speech is a bitch.

    But it is free speech.

    I may not like it, but that's the way it is.

    At the end of the day, I actually feel nothing but sorry for the members of the WBC, to dedicate your life to this kind of hate, and to go out of your way to inflict this kind of pain on a grieving family shows a lack of happyness and fulfillment in your life, and for that, I truly feel sorry for them.
    I agree. If their God says that they should add to the suffering of others, then their God sucks.

    It just isn't true that faith is an excuse for inhumanity. Whether you are a WBC asshole or a Muslim jihadi, your God sucks.

    I totally agree. The way to deal with these intolerable people isn't by appealing to the Consititution. We have to allow this aberant behavior in order to ensure that reaonsable debate is protected. The way to handle these WBC folks is to confront them as individuals and let the know that our society will allow but not encourage their inhumane actions. We think of them in the same way that we think of a person who farts in the elevator.

    These people have mistaken "Satan" for God. Only the devil would put such a foolish notion into someone's mind - that God is killing anyone.

    I really like the "theatre of the absurd" approach to situations like this. Go there and "join" them. With the most ridiculous exaggerations/costumes you can come up with.

    Start a "third party campaign" in full support of their activities and beliefs pretending to be a member of your favorite enemy. "Ejaculation is intent to concieve. Homosexuality kills a baby before it can even be conceived". It's most fun of all if they don't get it!.

    Mockery is the best policy. And if one of them takes a swing at you...voila, game over for them, big money for you.

    Re: Supreme Court rules in favor of WBC

    i was actually searching for a cheap ticket to that Jackasses "Koran burning", last year. After rejecting my first several responses as unhelpful to counterproductive, I had settled on showing up with a fire extinguisher, making sure I got on as many cameras as possible. Let the Muslim world know that at least some of us don't approve of disrespecting another person's religion.

    I just watched the Daughter of the Pastor of this group and Chris Wallace asked her what she had to say about her grop being a Cult based on this definition: "a religion or sect considered to be false, unorthodox, or extremist, with members often living outside of conventional society under the direction of a charismatic leader."

    She said her Father would laugh about being call charismatic but the truth is she failed to defend her Cult as far as I am concerned.

    I think the SCOTUS had no choice but to rules as they did but it's a fine line between Free Speech and incitement to violence which I see this as.

    I also think States can limit protests proximity to crematories. If President Bush and others can set up free speech zones and get away with it States should be able to control the proximity to funerals of disrupting ceremonies.

    On a late night Fox News show the host asked if in light of this incitement to violence being call Free Speech why can't he kick the WBC members asses and call it performance art.

    I love that. This cult need to be labeled as such, but it would not have any effect on the ruling. After all dumb-asses are allowed to burn the flag.

    Scum bags everyone of these inbred bastards.
