I did not want to derail the General thread about Robin Williams, so decided to elaborate in this thread about it. The news had a report that the Westborrow people may picket Robin's funeral, and have publicly smeared his name already stating how he mocks God in his comedy, and has already gone to Hell, among other things said.
I hope our US Supreme Court is again proud of their ruling towards these people, protecting their rights to do so, and evidently writing these kinds of things while a family is is complete devastation and mourning the loss of a Father and Husband. If this is the wisdom of our highest courts, not being able to separate right from wrong, common decency and temper that into our laws, we are in sad shape. Why this even got to any court is beyond me, if you define what would be a frivolous lawsuit.
Every culture in the world, including those of radical Muslims have a certain respect for their own dead, have funerals, and ceremonies for being laid to rest. A certain reverence for the departed, is maintained in a human manner, is virtually universal in every continent. The rights of the dead should prevail in that their final dedication to their final resting place, should be first and foremost, along with the privacy of loved ones doing it, in a unhampered way. The idea of the Westborrow Church again being allowed to interfere with what is a spiritual right passing from this life, is beyond me. It is repulsive to every culture and religion on earth.
As far as these people are concerned, they target, those who would not react with violence, and know they are defenseless disrupting them. They would not dare protest the funeral of a known gang member leader, where they would know, they could face a major drive by shooting. It would not be the first time at a gang funeral drive by shooting occur. They would never had protested the likes of a Jimmy Hoffa with a vile message like this, knowing a thousand teamsters were right across the street with clubs in their trunks. Nor would they converge into Middle East and wave signs are the terrorists occupying Muslims convert to Christianity, and give Bibles out . No, they only pick safe targets, like a brat hiding behind his mothers skirt, making faces.
Lets all hope they do not do what they threaten. I was under the impression, since it was a family kind of clan, that when the old man died, the son was vowing to change their image. I guess not. The old man certainly was a hateful and twisted individual.
