FOX Charlotte asks, “Should it be legal to protest at funerals?” in response to this week’s Supreme Court case involving Westboro Baptist Church and Fred Phelps. The station caught up with our editor for his thoughts, as well as longtime anti-gay religious leader Joe Chambers.
“Should it be legal to protest at funerals?”
Absolutely NOT! A funeral is not an occasion where it is fair to harass the bereaved. They are NOT in a normal state of mind. It is a PERSONAL ATTACK to do so. If my son were being buried and protesters showed up, there would be a lot more funerals in the making. That’s a promise.
Also, it’s too bad that people only started caring when WBC started protesting straight soldiers funerals.
As much as I dislike the Phelps clan, if they lose in the SCOTUS then we all lose…No matter how much we hate what is said, We must defend their right to speak it. Over the Past few years the SCOTUS has been chipping away our rights all in the name of National Security, If we lost this right they we will never to able to question our government without the fear of being throw in jail.
