    Whose privacy is being violated? If they are on public property protesting no-ones privacy is being violated.

    The right to bury my loved one and grieve in peace. No right is absolute. There are rules even for public space.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    People protesting a funreal have every right to. As ****ed up as it sounds they have the right to use public space to protest whatever ****ed up **** they believe in. Just as neo-nazis have the right to march through a town that has a good amount of jews in it like in Skokie, Illinois.

    The rights of those paying respects to the dead. At what point to we say enough? If you go to a public square to hear a speaker, and find the topic offensive, you can leave. But in a setting where you have certain expectations of privacy (which you paid for) and that public speaker invades your space?
    Where does it stop? Do they have a right to come to your home and do the same, as long as they stay on public property? Where do the rights of those to express themselves stop and the rights of those who don't want to hear/see it start?

    They have every right to protest in a public space. As long as the space is public. I know sometimes it sucks with hate speech but guess what they have the right to spew their ****ing ignorance all they want.

    Agreed. As much as the Skokie example is true, however people can evade the protest.
    Expectations of privacy at a Funeral Home, private home, Cemetery are different from expectations on a city street

    They're outside on public land. How much privacy do you get outside? They're not on the church's property, they're not inside.

    That right doesn't necessarily exist, particularly if you are going to utilize public roads and spaces in the process.
