Pick a number and wait in line.....

I couldn't believe when I'd first seen the disgraceful protests they put up at the funerals of the soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. In front of their grieving parents no less.

There's still the story about the man who took them to court for his pain and suffering at his son's funeral (killed in Afghanistan, I believe.)  He initially won, and then it was reversed, and he wound up paying for the WBC.  This if I remember right.

That case is still under Supreme Court review . . . it would be shameful if he has to pay.

One of these days, those idiotic fanatics will emotionally torture the wrong person, and pay with their lives.

Much as we all hate the WBC, I'm afraid Snyder's lawsuit was frivolous.  It wouldn't be shameful for someone to pay court costs for a frivolous lawsuit; in fact, it's shameful that it doesn't happen more often.  That said, this is probably not the case to start suddenly enforcing those rules.

I don't know if frivolous is the right word there . . . doomed, perhaps.  But I do think he suffered genuine emotional torment and trauma at the hands of those evil, evil people.

I don't mean "frivolous" in the common sense, but legally frivolous under the Federal Rules of Evidence.

Indeed, Indy.

A person who has passed on has the right to some dignity at their funeral, as their family has a right to  be free of intimidation or ridicule by those who are too happy to see them gone.

What you think is one thing, what you do is another, and for anyone to be openly ridiculed at their funeral (or to hurt their grieving parents) is beyond the definition of the world "immoral."

Well at this point the Tea Party would get the blame if someone ordered sausage with their panckaes instead of hash browns...

Only five WBs showed up, and way more counter-protesters showed up.  I guess that's something.

I guess the WB's are gettin' the message that they aren't wanted or appreciated anymore.  :bouncegiggle:

Rather than the earth parting, it would be more fitting for the entire church to get burnt down by lightening strikes. That would be a proper smiting for such devils.

I just stopped carring about these people and how low they can go. It's pretty much a family and a few people that want attention, and they're getting it, but they're not going to get mine.

You can trust me when I say I don't like Shirley Phelps Roper.

You know both her and he father have been legally BANNED from Britain at the QUEEN'S behest? THAT'S how evil she is! The QUEEN OF ENGLAND won't take her s**t!

A sad but true indictment.  Not of all, but of far too many.
