    Westboro Baptist Church to picket Michael Brown funeral

    They protested Robin Williams for a movie. Now they're protesting Brown for Rams hiring a gay football player. How is it either persons problem or responsibility?

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I thought that those people had went out of business.

    Who's keeping them around?

    I suspect that life will go on no matter what those people say or do.

    Huh. I suggested this yesterday.

    My only concern with this is that someone will off one of the WBC nuts and that they'll sue the state for not providing sufficient protection. They make their money that way.


    As an aside, so does the SPLC.

    What assholes.

    Not sure it came through but Westboro showing up at that funeral will provide some violent reality television. I'm sure they will be prevented from protesting at the Brown's funeral for public safety reasons. It would be like watching a train wreck though.
