    It is funny how fickle Americans are when it comes to their beliefs in the right to peacefully protest.

    It's something worth protecting, as long as we agree with the protest.

    True.

    I read the SCOTUS decision from Snyder v Phelps and while I didn't like the decision one bit it was pretty damned hard to say it was incorrect.

    It is a sad thing that strict adherence to the first amendment can allow disturbing someones funeral. In my country this would not be allowed and all of these idiots would be arrested every time they set up their hate camp. Freedom of speech is allowed, disturbing the peace of a funeral is not.

    Apparently they need some attention.

    Too bad the family didn't chose to scatter them on the grounds of the WBC....

    Well, almost. Defamation, false advertising, speech that creates a clear and present danger of violent action, and obscenity, including child pornography, are all forms of speech that are not protected by the First Amendment.

    I feel a lot like I did about the mosque that was to be built near the Twin Towers...
    That's an interesting case. I doubt many people realize several Muslim Brotherhood front groups are behind that "Cordoba Project."
    I know damn well there is some way to stop a thing like that without violating anyone's constitutional rights--just takes some creative thinking.

    The problem is that what this really is is "freedom of speech, as long as the government says it's ok."

    See underlined.

    That's a rare gift we see very little of these days, IMHO.
