YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO SPEAK, NOT TO BE HEARD (via Bryan Francoeur):

Congress passes funeral protest ban: Bill targets group that taunts mourners at military rites (AP, 5/25/06)

Demonstrators would be barred from disrupting military funerals at national cemeteries under legislation approved by Congress and sent to the White House.

The measure, passed by voice vote in the House Wednesday hours after the Senate passed an amended version, specifically targets a Kansas church group that has staged protests at military funerals around the country, claiming that the deaths were a sign of God's anger at U.S. tolerance of homosexuals.

The act "will protect the sanctity of all 122 of our national cemeteries as shrines to their gallant dead," Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tennessee, said prior to the Senate vote.

"It's a sad but necessary measure to protect what should be recognized by all reasonable people as a solemn, private and deeply sacred occasion," he said.


Why not just issue the honor guard live rounds?

Need;ess to say, phelps is not any kind of christian, he is, in fact, a full blown psycopath with a history of brutal abuse of his own children and continuous harrasment of the community.

A rare example of a truely, deeply evil man.

Why waste ammunition? Bayonets would suffice, and the honor guard would probably enjoy it more.

Apparently that "bible believer" never read Jesus's take on the tower of Siloam disaster.

He's headed to hell, along with spammers.
