"The fringe cult calling itself Westboro Baptist (a small congregation consisting of close, and possibly incestuous, relatives of Fred Phelps, who calls himself a pastor) first became famous by protesting gay rights events with revolting signs suggesting that God hates gay people. (They used another offensive terms as well). These ugly signs proved irresistible to reporters from the New York Times etc., who like to pretend this sentiment captures religious conservatives' views generally..."Why does it feel like Miss Maggie is getting a bit too sensitive and protesteth-ing a bit too much? She knows damn well that she and the rest of her anti-gay ilk who masquerade as society's moral gatekeepers and grand protectors of marriage do not even have six degrees of separation from the repulsive Westboro Baptist Church. Is it because deep down inside she knows the only thing that really separates her and her fellow sanctimonious frauds who bleat their protect marriage bullsh*t from the freaks at the Westboro Baptist Church is the fact that the Westboro Baptist Church doesn't make any effort to hide their hate in fancy-schmancy, bible-ly language and pretend concern for marriage and children like Maggie and her anti-gay brethren do? Could it be that Miss Maggie Morals is getting a bit nervous that those of us who have brains don't really see much difference between her and the Westboro Baptist Church? Or does Miss Maggie need the Westboro Baptist Church to be muzzled so that no one can make the connection that both she and the WBC really have more in common than not? I mean, think about it, both have dedicated their lives and funneled all of their energy and passions into making sure that a whole segment of our society is stripped of all rights, dignity, and respect simply because they love someone Miss Maggie and the Reverend Fred Phelps don't approve of.
"Only Justice Sam Alito had the common sense to recognize that somewhere in our great Constitution, there has to be a way to let people bury their dead, without becoming the objects of other people's monomaniacal desire to disrupt their grieving for publicity purposes."So to be clear, Miss Maggie is all for free speech and freedom of religion when it comes to going after the lgbtq community. But she definitely does have problems when homophobes like the WBC clan picket funerals of our fallen soldiers (but don't we all?). I guess someone needs to let little Miss Maggie in on the bad news. Our constitution guarantees free speech and freedom to practice any kind of religion we please and that includes the Reverend Fred Phelps and his nasty little clan of bigots. The constitution doesn't do caveats. And if Maggie had half a brain she'd realize that is a good thing. She will always be guaranteed the right to be a hateful homophobe who tells ugly, vicious lies in order to justify her intense desire to strip every last gay American of the same rights she and her children enjoy. And thanks to the Supreme Court ruling so will her brother-in-arms, the reverend Fred Phelps. In the Supreme Courts eyes, there is no difference between Miss Maggie and old Freddie boy.
