The westboro baptist church founded some time around 1955, and whose members were measured at 71 in 2007, and allegedly consisting primarily of family, won their case in a recent Supreme Court decision, that their first amendment freedom of speech would be interfered with if they were prevented from picketing funerals of American service people.
This alleged church which has no reported connection to any other Baptist Church in America has made an undistinguished name for itself with its vile performances, and hate bearing signs that have vilified everyone from Obama to Gay and Lesbians. The group located in Kansas was founded by the grandfather of the woman who presented a case to the Court that eight of the 9 justices found acceptable.
Our First Amendment which provides for freedom of speech. was found by the court to trump reasonable opposition by grieving families to bury their war dead without being ringed by a circus of protesters creating chaos. The alleged church may have won a victory, but they have also won the anger and disgust of the American people who have found them to be a despicable, hate group, that hates in the name of God. They must worship a different God than the rest of us normal human beings.
