The Supreme Court Case, and Albert Synder heard today The Westboro Baptist Church Case comes down to Freedom of Speech against abusing the bereaved at Funerals.
The Law may be on the side of the Westboro Baptist Church although most of the country is on the side of Mr. Snyder.
The Right to Funeral Protest is a very complex legal, moral and political issue
Supreme Court justices seemed to struggle with the question of whether the father of a dead Marine should win his lawsuit against fundamentalist church members who picketed his son’s funeral.
The justices heard argument Wednesday in the emotion-laden case
of Albert Snyder. His son died in Iraq in 2006, and members of the
Westboro Baptist Church protested the funeral to make their point
that U.S. deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq are punishment for
Americans’ immorality, including tolerance of homosexuality and
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said the question is whether the
First Amendment must tolerate “exploiting this bereaved family.“via www.kake.com
