Democratic leadership in the United States Senate is getting involved in the chilling Funeral Case of the Westboro Baptist church, that involves funeral protesters and Free Speech.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) expressed dismay over a court’s decision to overturn a ruling in favor of a fallen solider whose funeral was disrupted by a radical church group.
Marine Lance Corporal Matthew Snyder was killed in Iraq in 2006. But his funeral in Maryland was interrupted with protests and signs by a group from the Westboro Baptist Church, a group that objects to members of the military because they protect a country that tolerates homosexuality.
Reid has promised investigation into the matter and is urging the US Supreme Court to rule in favor of the of the Marine’s Family and not the Funeral Protesters.
The protesting Church is known for their anti gay slogans and their anti military, anti America protests.
