And we don't actually know what would have happened had a shielder sued the WBC, because that wasn't the posture the case was in when the Supreme Court took it up.
"you're better off on Stormfront discussing how evil brown men are taking innocent white flowers." Infinite Chaos
This is how I really feel on this case.
Jones is despicable and should be mocked endlessly.
There are consequences to free speech .... however, excepting certain limited circumstances that are defined as "not protected speech", there is nothing the government can or should do in this case.
Additionally, this situation is not even remotely analogous to "shouting fire". ( I had started another thread with some wild examples on that SCOTUS ruling) . If you applied that standard (SCOTUS) to this situation, every little thing that we believe, or write, or speak that goes against someone's religion could be considered an incitement to violence.
People are responsible for the actions that they take. If the actions involve killing people because they were offended well then they can go **** themselves.

I am amazed that there are 3 votes for yes. I mean ya gotta speak nice about Muhammed and the Tooth Fairy. Especially fairies. Let's not be suggesting that Muhammed was a pedophile because Aisha was only 9 years old. Heaven forbid! I don't really know, but I think the AssCrack worshippers need to be treated as well. Keerist, where's a good fumigator when you need one? I think the key word is "treated."
