This actually makes me sick to my stomach:
Citing free speech concerns, a federal judge on Monday struck down Missouri’s restrictions on protests outside military funerals, CNN reports.
Westboro Baptist Church had brought suit over its claimed right to march outside the burials and memorial services of those killed in overseas conflicts after the Missouri legislature passed a law to keep protesters from demonstrating within 300 feet of private services.
Seriously, why do you feel the urge to do this? Is this a way to get your jollies off? Do you feel morally superior because of you “Christian protests?”
Westboro church members, led by pastor Fred Phelps, picket the funerals of soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan with signs reading “Thank God for Dead Soldiers” — because they believe that as long as America countenances sin, American soldiers deserve to die.
There is sooo much wrong with this belief, I don’t know where to start. And what get’s me is they are probably pro-life… Abortion is murder, but soldiers deserve to die…it’s a bit of a paradox.
Why don’t you exercise your First Amendment right to shut up. I really feel it would make the world a better place.
