^ this. I completely disagree with what they are doing, with that being said, anyone who tries to take the first admendment right away from the WBC might as well have been there holding the signs at that funeral as well.
That kid died fighting for the rights of ALL people, not just the ones who believe the way he did.
With all that being said, This is america, I hope they get sued into oblivion.
This just happened in the last coupla' days. WBC was in a small Oklahoma town protesting something I didn't catch what. While they were away from their van someone slashed all four tires.. WBC drove the van on flat tires to a local tire shop.. The tire shop saw all signs they had and told them to get lost...I didn't hear what happened after that.. I don't agree with the tire slashing but what's done is done.. It's a great hoot.. The story made me smile..
WBC totally deserves it, and deserves worse. But the people who did it aren't in the right either. What WBC does is reprehensible, but protected by the constition. What these people did is a crime: they destroyed someone else's property, therefore violating their rights. I can't brng myself to agree with that no matter how much I hate WBC. Not even Westboro has ever resorted to vandalism.
