Republicans, Democrats come together against Funeral Protestors|Your Funeral Guy

31 May

Republicans and Democrats have come together in Support of the the Military  family who is having a case heard before the US Supreme Court. The case involves free speech and the Funeral Protests of the Westboro Baptist Church.

Some reports show that 48  states are siding against the Westboro Baptist Church in the supreme court case.

Free speech is important but hate speech doses not have to be allowed at the private Funerals of our Fallen Military.

Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) for once found common ground with Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on the issue. Reid held a news conference with Snyder Friday to say 42 members of the Senate had signed on to an amicus brief to condemn the actions of Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., and its founding pastor, Fred W. Phelps Sr.

“Respondents were and are free to convey their repugnant message in virtually any public manner they choose,” the senators said in a brief written by former Clinton administration counsel Walter E. Dellinger III. “But they were not free to hijack petitioners’ private funeral as a vehicle for expression of their own hate.”
