Ok forgive me if this has been done before..I'm a newbie. So I'm watching the NBC nightly news and they are saying that legally Westboro Church is protected under the freedom of speech law. I'm sure you all know how crazy, hateful, dispicable and disgusting they are. What say you? I just wish we could shut these people up. I mean, is there seriously nothing we can do about these hateful people?

I agree...they frustrate me. I hate even thinking of them. I don't think they should be able to "protest".

It just breaks my heart to see what they do at funerals. Not sure if I believe in hell but I hope these people have a special place there!

 honestly think ppl need to ignore them. as long as they get a reaction they are going to keep doing what they are doing.

 Unfortunately, lack of manners, common sense and common courtesy are permitted.

I hate these people with a passion. However, I believe very much that the First Ammendment protects all speech, not just popular speech.

I think there should be a law against mentally torturing the grieving whether it be military related or not.

This is beyong "speech" though. They are torturing mentally torturing these people. Last I heard that is a form of abuse and is against the law.

I think a group of people should stand outside their church and protest. Have a bunch of swear words on posters for their kids to see, or blast heavy metal music while they're trying to have a church service.

Right. They are attention whores. But I've stood against them twice and will again if necessary.
