I saw we get a group of people to picket his church every sunday denouncing their disgusting ignorance to the bible and pull the hell card and whatnot.

Pulling someone from delusion is one of the hardest things possible.

Thought I would unearth this one from a few years ago. These people protested the funeral of a US soldier killed in action, as Gods rath against Gays, and the soldier wasn't even gay.

With all the protesters now demanding the Boston Bomber not be allowed to be buried in the USA, most cemeteries are refusing to allow him.

Where are the Westborrow Baptists being completely silent and not protesting this person, for his perverted acts and radical Muslim views, but they can see fit to protest a soldier who died for this country.

Hard to believe our US Supreme Court ruled in their favor to protest.

Yes it is hard to believe, because in this day and age, the US Supreme Court tends to reject the original meaning of the Constitution and conjure up their own Liberal interpretation. They judged correctly in this case, as despicable as the Westboro congregation behaved. We have to understand, the Supreme Court Judges are held to a different standard because the judgments they render are used as a basis to render future judgments. Had they ruled against the Westboro Baptist Church's right to protest peacefully, then they would have opened the floodgates for future cases and our freedoms (right to assemble, right to free speech) as a result, would be diminished nearly to the point of being taken away altogether.

I don't think the Justices took personal pleasure in their ruling, but they ruled correctly. Strictly moral decisions are not made by the Court, and thank God for that.

The gay people who want to get married will, I hope, benefit from this principle.

Strictly Moral is what makes us not agree with many Supreme Court rulings, so not so sure you are thanking God for that, many times. Other issues become a question of what is strictly moral and not, and who defines that.

Do we really need to defend out freedom of speech and expression by allowing a morally repulsive act to be done, namely disrespecting a families privacy while burying their dead? That freedom causes anguish, pain and suffering for others, at a private time of grief, can not be called morally right.

My point was not the Supreme Court ruling in reposting this, it was a question of why the Westborro people saw fit to protest a US hero, but not this scumbag.

The answer is fairly simple in my opinion, or at least I think it should be considered. The reason they are not protesting this murderer, which was fueled by hatred, is because they are busy going about their father's business. Judging by their fruits, one could make a fairly decent assumption on who their father is, and his business has much in common with Islam. Both are wolves, the difference is Westboro tries to wear the sheep's clothing.
