The hatemongers at Westboro “Baptist Church” are within their First Amendment rights to protest military funerals.  At least that’s what the US Supreme Court said in a 8-1 ruling.  Justice Alito was the lone dissenter in this case.

But just because we can do something, that doesn’t mean that we should do it.  While I’m a strong supporter of the First Amendment, I think the High Court got it wrong in this instance.
