    Default Westbrook Baptist Church plans to picket Newtown funerals.

    So disgusting. How are these people not prosecuted for hate crimes?

    Freedom of religion and all that.
    Thus do we growl that our big toes have, at this moment, been thrown up from below!

    As disgraceful and disgusting as they are, you have to reject interference from the law otherwise the First Amendment is truly done and dead.

    That said, I hope every one of them rots in hell. They are despicable and not even worth the title of human beings.

    Because until they actually do something other than saying hateful things, they are protected under the First Amendment.

    They are horrible people.

    Edited to add: Finally, something that caballero and I can agree on!

    Jose, that's probably the first and only thing you've ever said on here that I can agree with.

    Latest news is the Westboro website has been hacked by Anonymous, and all personal information on members has been posted, including addresses and phone numbers. A twitter feed about the shooting, that apparently was horrible has been hacked by a private individual, when the Twitter operators couldn't act on it. These horrible excuses for human beings will not get away with this.

    There's a good chance karma will bite me in the butt, but I laughed out loud when I read that. Good for Anonymous. Shame on Westbroro.

    The Westboro Baptist "Church" has been all about hate for a long time. Back in 2004, they went all the way to NH to picket at the private school my daughter attended because a well-loved and respected Lesbian couple was chosen to be dorm parents. The students were held in the gymnasium all day so the "Church" members couldn't assault them or cause the kind of drama they hoped would land them on television.
    I recently read that a group of students from Texas A&M formed a human chain to shield a military funeral from Westboro "Church" hate signs and speech. I know that our Frist Amendment Rights are important, but the Westboro "Church" hate group has bastardized those rights in their insatiable quest for the limelight. They are truly despicable.

    Anonymous hacked into their website and is giving out the emails and addresses of these people. They want free speech, They should get it.
