jeff & eddie;3647257In america, your thoughts are not illegal, nor is what you say. These people are not putting any lives in jeopardy, (the "Fire" in a theater example). They are merely expressing themselves. Which makes this a great country. If you don't like what they have to say, don't listen to it. I find it bizarre that there was a thread created about "Fascist america in 10 easy steps", yet censoring the WBC would be the fascist thing to do.
Free speech, it's what makes this country great. Preach on WBC, and God Bless.
Because preaching hate is what America is all about. God bless it. :beer:
If those morons show up at a funeral for any of my people. I will hunt the leaders of that bunch like dogs. If they think they can hide in the church from me; they will be horribly wrong.
I'll do it and I'll get away with it. The only right they'll have then is the right to defend themselves.
They are asking for trouble.

Truely sickening that these people come to protest to funerals and say it's good that a "fag soldier" died when a father is burying his fallen hero son. There was one video where the people attending to the funeral attacked WBC and their van, eventually broke the van's windows. No wonder.. In an interview they also said someone shot with a shotgun at them.
Why Respect for America's Fallen Heroes Act only protects state cemeteries? Everyone should be allowed to be put to rest honorably and in peace.
Good thing atleast Kux Klux Klan is attacking them, they should use their time on other hate groups more. Apparently they can't stand this unpatriocity. see

Okay class. Everyone take a seat--you two in the back, knock it off or i'll box your ears.
Okay, today class-we're going to discuss something very special in our country. Something that separates our country from all the others. You see, In America, we have this thing called the constitution. The constitution of the United States, is very special.
Why is it special you ask? Because the constitution takes power away from the government. In other words, us ordinary citizens have protected rights that the government cannot take away from us. Prior to the creation of the United States, all governments had absolute authority over the citizens. So you see class, the Constitution at the time, a very radical and new concept. Even in todays world, 2007, it is still very foreign to many people. You see, few people are lucky enough to have as many "rights" as we Americans have. And we have our rights due to the constitution and its amendments. I’ll very briefly touch up on some of the most basic freedoms that so many Americans greedily take for granted(they have no concept of other people) which are covered by the First amendment. - Freedom of Speech (the government will not censor you) - Freedom of Press (the government will not censor the press) - Freedom of Religion (the government will not tell you what to believe) - Freedom of Assembly (you are allowed to protest) What the WBC preaches, may not be what America is all about. But their right to say it, is.
Anyone who wants to censor them, is directly attacking the most fundamental right in America. Attacking the constitution, for its most basic right is downright UNAmerican.
Now, I want to know: Anyone who wants to censor them living in the United States--why do you hate America and its Constitution?
I'm never going to be what passes for american today..weak and whiny. I'm going to live by my rules. Screw their rights. They better be strong enough to handle the storm. If not, then they will live out their destiny of being worm food and fertilizer.

Call them whatever you want, but they are not stupid. Many of them, including Fred himself have Law Degrees, and several of them practice law and are admitted to the bar. They could mop the floor with anyone here in terms of a real debate. They are all extremely intelligent people.

Quoted for comedic appeal. That’s rich... Too funny man, I hadn’t smiled all day, until now. Thanks.

And you know these people personally and how well they debate? Law degree doesn't necessarily equal to master debater, and calling people like WBC as "extremely intelligent people" is an insult for word "intelligent".
P.S. It's not like the USA is the only one country having a constitution and those four freedoms are in our constitution too, like they were included in its preceding constitutional acts as well. Besides, having a constitution doesn't guarantee that the freedoms haven't been/aren't violated.
