PostSubject: WBC being sued for their funeral protests   Fri Jun 04, 2010 4:51 pm

WASHINGTON Forty-eight states and the District of Columbia have submitted a brief to the Supreme Court in support of a father who sued anti-gay protesters over their demonstration at the 2006 funeral of his son, a Marine killed in Iraq.

Only Virginia and Maine declined to sign the brief by the Kansas attorney general.

Albert Snyder sued over protests by the Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church at his son's funeral in Maryland. The church pickets funerals because they believe war deaths are punishment for U.S. tolerance of homosexuality.

The Supreme Court has agreed to consider whether the protesters' message is protected by the First Amendment.

In the brief filed Tuesday, the states argued they have a compelling interest in protecting the sanctity of funerals.


If all guys well the WBC will be fucked pretty badly

I'd rather just bring Varg over here for a day and let him go to town. As far as I'm concerned, that church is not a Christian organization

I hope WBC wins, but I do hope this distracts them from protesting for as long as possible.

I seriously think there needs to be a counter crusade. All non-Christian groups get to persecute Christians for however long the inquisitions lasted (ie roughly 700 years). Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth.

WBC is annoying. I dislike Scientology more though. I wouldn't say either are dangerous though.

I don't think you have the right to protest private matters and it probably breaks some slander and privacy laws as well.

Scientology is a cult, as defined by Germany. I'm still trying to convince my global teacher to allow me to write my DBQ on Scientology if religion is the topic.

It was my understanding that they protested near, not inside, the funeral event.

They should be hushed because they are a threat to themselves. One day, somebody is gonna kill some of them.

Yeah, this one house on my street has all these ridiculous ornaments on their front garden. Who the hell needs Easter Island heads in Scotland?
