Bad Religion II – God Hates Phelps

It seems that an argument about free speech is to go before the U.S. Supreme Court. It involves the loathsome Phelps coven, the Westboro Baptist Church and the father of a dead U.S. marine, whose funeral the WBC protested at.
As much as it pains me to say this, I think the WBC are right in their free speech argument. That argument gives everyone, of whatever religion or none, the right to express their views, and if that right is taken away from one group (or even one person) it can be taken away from anyone.
On this side of the pond (UK) we don’t have a written constitution, and it can look to us like a very sharp double-edged sword, so a better way of dealing with scum like Phelps, in my opinion, would be to use that other edge, and protest against him and his “church”. Sadly I’m unlikely ever to get the chance of protesting in person, as the Phelps clan is banned from entering this country, but if the ban is ever lifted I’ve got a picture all ready to display. If anyone who can get near the WBC would like to use it, please do!
