I understand free speech. This group practices it on their website. But just as we have laws now against hate speech, as well as the proverbial shouting "fire" in a crowded theater. Do we allow this verbal abuse to encroach our personal space? I think they should stick to their web site where if anyone wants to go look is free to do so. Showing up at a funeral and subjecting mourning families to this garbage is an encroachment to their civil rights, IMO. I won't post their web address, you can get that by googling Rev. Phelps, but I notice they are due to picket a funeral in Norton, Ks. and even plan to picket the funeral of the seven students who died in the Carolina fire. Whatever for???? Maybe with the verdict today, they won't show up at either one. We can only hope.
