Re: Anti-gay church’s right to protest at military funerals is upheld
One delusional person, I get (take C.S. …please). Two crazies who find each other – ok, yeah I could see that. But how the hell can this deep of a level of delusion spread to over 100 people?! Not one of them can possibly have a single nerve of sense in their brains, or they would realize how incredibly hypocritical they are. Not to mention their completely irrational concept connecting soldiers who fought & died for *their* country, to their ‘religious’ issues with other peoples’ sexuality.
This is the problem with America’s black-or-white stance on so many issues. You can’t expect everything to work in its purist form – that includes freedom of speech, capitalism, and yes, even democracy. Exceptions need to be made to make it work. Sure, you can say, “But if you silence them, what about x?!” But how about we take it case-by-case? Protesting at a funeral should just be a specific case where free speech is trumped by respect. Or if we do need to keep everything in its purist form, maybe we need to add an Amendment about “Freedom of Respect” to the Constitution, and let it duke it out with “Freedom of Speech.” I’ve got a feeling, in this case, Respect would overrule.
