that damn liberal NYT...
It probably will be seen as free speech, but these people are worse than crazy. Considering how many people from the colonists to today have served in the military and the number of those who died for this country have damned well earned the right to be respected. Unfortunately, there are way too many ingrates in this country.
You got that right.
If this was a war they "approved" of they would be out there showing respect.
Unfortunately some in this country see the military as the enemy not those that send the military. Its much easier to show up at someones funeral and show disrespect to a soldier who died while carring out his orders than to actually go to DC and go after those that sent out the orders.
Some people really do suck.
To defend only the Speech you accept is to reject the Constitution.
Read it again, genius. Both posters said it was protected, but tasteless.
It's an interesting question.
As I recall, part of Hustler's defense was that their cartoon was clearly a joke to hold Falwell up to ridicule. I don't know about anybody else, but I don't see how "God hates you" and "Thank God for dead soldiers" could be interpreted as a joke.
Somewhat different issue, so I wouldn't be surprised if this prompts a split decision from the SCOTUS.
Well, in such cases as this, I would have to say that it is their right to be so wrong. And it would be my right to go to jail for busting one of their noses.
This bunch of idiots doesn't see the military as the enemy, they're doing whatever they can to gain attention, and this has worked for them. From what I've read, this so called church is just an extended family who are all attorneys. They stage these demonstrations in the hopes of someone doing something stupid and then they can sue. They're looking for the city, township, etc... to deny them permits and then they'll file a lawsuit. I wish the media would stop reporting on them and giving them attention.
It's a shame that it has affected this soldier's family that much tho, these people are meaningless and they should put them in their proper place and not give them a second thought. In no way did their disgusting behaviour outside of his funeral tarnish this man's honor.
Of course just like everything under the sun is free speech to Repubs.. For example, when Ann Coulter said the 911 widows enjoyed their husband's death..
Here's some shit spewed forth by that ever zany, but oh so asinine, Sean Penn.

Loony? Absolutely. But he has the right to say it.
