Freedom Brings Responsibility; WBC's Hypocrisy

Yesterday, the Supreme Court ruled 8-1 for Westboro “Baptist Church“. Alito was the only dissenting opinion, based on emotions. You can read the Court’s opinion here.

This is a very touchy topic, and my personal opinion is that Phelp’s crew is a bunch of haters who wouldn’t know love or Jesus if he descended from the clouds in front of them. Did he not say in John 7:53-8:11, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” And they left because they realized that they were hypocrites. When you point your finger it blinds you to the one(s) pointing back at you. Hatred blinds you, causing the self-righteous attitude I despise, and it will kill your spirit, and make you your own worst enemy.

While I despise the methods the WBC uses, they do have the right to protest on public land, it is the First Amendment, which I broke down and explained. You have a right to free speech, but you better be able to back it up. They should pick a different forum for their hate. Which is  why I’m happy the Patriot Riders shield the mourning from the hating. Now if the mourners kicked the crap out the protesters, I’d applaud.

  1. You are completely right on about this subject. Those protesters have every right to be there no matter how disturbing their message. It amazes me that these people can’t show somebody enough respect to be buried peacefully, I mean really, what does that say about their moral fiber?

    Something else that gets me though, are ‘free speech zones’. I think the phrase itself is absurd, all of the United States is a free speech zone, but, if there was ever a time to implement one, i’d say this would be a perfect time, however it is still wrong. If the same protesting that went on in Egypt went on here, I have a good feeling it would have been declared as civil unrest and the military would have been implemented. (sorry for the rant, great article)

      1. What about the procession? That seems to be the hardest place to keep these people in check.

        It seems to me that at the place of burial (the funeral home/grave site) could exercise private property rights and keep these people off their property.

  2. Not sure about the procession, the MO of the WBC is to protest on public land. It didn’t take long for funeral homes and cemeteries to kick them off.

What are your thoughts about this?
