Jesus Take The Wheel: Supreme Court Upholds The Right Of Anti-Gay Kansas Church To Protest At Soldiers Funerals!!

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Attention Slores, Bolitics, Cry Me A River

This is NOT what Jesus would do!

A Kansas church known for its angry, anti-gay protests at funerals of U.S. troops won an appeal Wednesday at the Supreme Court in a case testing the competing constitutional rights of free speech and privacy.

In an 8-1 ruling, the justices said that members of Westboro Baptist Church had a right to promote what they call a broad-based message on public matters such as wars. The father of a fallen Marine had sued the small church, saying those protests amounted to targeted harassment and an intentional infliction of emotional distress.

“Speech is powerful. It can stir people to action, move them to tears of both joy and sorrow, and — as it did here — inflict great pain. On the facts before us, we cannot react to that pain by punishing the speaker,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the majority.

At issue was a delicate test between the privacy rights of grieving families and the free speech rights of demonstrators, however disturbing and provocative their message. Several states have attempted to impose specific limits on when and where the church members can protest.

The church, led by pastor Fred Phelps, believes God is punishing the United States for “the sin of homosexuality” through events including soldiers’ deaths. Members have traveled the country shouting at grieving families at funerals and displaying such signs as “Thank God for dead soldiers,” “God blew up the troops” and “AIDS cures fags.”

These type of people is exactly whats wrong with our country right now. We understand freedom of speech, but at a certain point spewing hate and especially hatred of dead soldiers is gonna get somebody’s a** kicked. Just know that Free speech ain’t “free”…

    • For real though?

      One of those family members of the deceased needs to give them a grievance beatdown and then claim insanity. They would totally get off!!! Although those protesters are protected by the Constitution, the potential “whooper of arse” is protected by certain defenses and insanity is a good one. Those protesters are just like children, they need to be spanked to learn a lesson.

    this whole homosexual thing really has my blood boiling. Christian and church people tend to turn the other cheek on certain things. No sin is greater then the other. What’s the difference between adultery and homosexuality?

  • Nancy

    I have no respect for people who do that at funerals!

  • I Am Legend (Allergic To Darkies)

    Somebody should bomb their church and then post signs at their funeral saying tell Satan hello

  • msbliss

    This is why I’m not a fan of religion. When ppl convince themselves their beliefs are not only superior but the absolute “truth” this mess rite here is the result. Only delusional ppl justify hatred like this & sit in agreement wit it. No NOT all christians agree wit this behavior BUT these ppl only do this type of stupid act to represent the ppl who believe what they do but chose not to march up & down the street on camera. Jesus nor allah is the answer. Doubt is. When we stop feeling like we have the answers 2 all lifes questions & start 2 think 4 ourselves all of this chaos will cease.

    • GG

      I totally agree.

    • Ellie

      @msbliss People convince themselves that their beliefs are superior in all aspects of life not just religion. It can be politics, money, labor, and etc. You may as well say having any strong convictions at all is wrong. I personally ascribe to the philosophy that that “those who stand for nothing fall for everything”.

      Please note I find the “Church’s” actions vile and despicable and frankly they’re not exemplifying what Christianity is about so to me they’re not speaking as Christians.

      I just think that the idea that no one should feel or think strongly on anything though is ludicrous. Your stance that “Allah and Jesus is not the answer”, itself is an “absolute” belief. Not to mention who’s to say that people can’t find God through question and reason? If you need proof check out works of Thomas Aquinas.

  • BIG REGG***MONEY TALKS

    THIS IS THE SHYTE PEOPLE SHOULD BE PAYING ATTENTION TO INSTEAD OF SOME DAMN LYRICS ON A LITTLE WAYNE SONG,THE SUPREME COURT RULED THAT NO MATTER HOW VILE AND NEGATIVE THESE PEOPLE”S REMARKS ARE THEY CAN STILL GO TO A DEAD PERSONS FUNERAL AND SPEW HATRED BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH,RAPPERS AINT SO BAD AFTER ALL!!!!!!

    • Ellie

      Why does it have to be one or the other? These individuals are vile and hateful, no doubt. But that doesn’t change how detrimental Lil Wayne’s lyrics are to black people and society as a whole. While I find these group of people to be disgusting the Constitution is the law of the land and it must be upheld even in the worst of situations.

  • JayJay

    lets not condemn the gays, instead pray for em n let em see that they’re livin in sin.
    BUT THEY STILL GOIN TO HELL THO!!!!
