ACLU Defends Rev Phelps.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...072200643.html
Why is it the ACLU defending this guy? You would think they would come up with someone who is more worthy of their attention. Rev Phelps free speech rights end where someone else's begin. He is entitled to his nutty beliefs, but the rest of us don't have to hear about it. It is hard to imagine anything less tasteful, than to stage a protest at someone else's funeral. Maybe the Karma train will catch up with Rev Phelps, and run over his *** and the asses of his clan.

Reading that made me want to club them like a baby seal.

It is apalling(sp?) that they have that lack of conscience to be able to disrupt people at a funeral. How would they feel if someone was picketing at their sons' funeral?

Btw, wasnt a similar article/thread on old MCB about 3 weeks ago?

These guys are loathsome, horrible people nearly all would agree. However, freedom of speech doesn't include a freedom from offense. I think it is beyond perverse what this group does to grieving families. Quite honestly I'm surprised they haven't been run over, beaten silly or blown up. Short of public nuisance or harassment laws I don't see how they can be stopped legally. Free speech doesn't allow one to yell "fire!" in a crowded theater but Phelp's activities are offensive not endangering. An errant 2,000 pound laser guided bomb might solve everyone's problems!

Not the first or the last time the ACLU has helped some scumbag.

Why is it the ONLY time the ACLU will help out a Christian is when they are the most VILE form of "Christian" on the planet? Attack the good Boy Scouts program at every possible turn and defend these vile freak shows?

The ACLU has big problems. Phelps and NAMBLA... there's no excuse for helping these monsters.

Phelps, NAMBLA, ACLU... meet baseball bat.

The problem with the ACLU is that they don’t use morals, only the letter of the law.

They DO however help a lot of Christians, and I was one of them. Yes, my civil rights were violated and guess who helped me out? That’s right, the ACLU. I will not get into the details, but know that they are there for EVERYONE all you have to do is pick up the phone and ask for help.

Now what the press gets wind of is usually the bad stuff. But a lot more is happening than that. Again though, I wish they applied common sense and morals to their choice of “battles” as opposed to simply the letter of the law… or warped interpretation of it in many cases.

This sort of attention in exactly what they'd want. These people don't deserve any more air time than the limited amount they get. I've seen more press about the bikers and veterans who show up to shield the families with rows of American flags which as it should be.

This sort of wack-job christian right is not new however, Pat Robertson/Jerry Falwel (can't remeber which one...they're kinda interchangable) were saying that 9/11 was God's judgement on America....until they realized their precarious position.

Left or Right, wack jobs are wack jobs.

(So the ACLU and these people combined are perhaps a good pairing....)
