  • I think this seems very reactionary. The WBC will be in north Idaho soon and I have debated driving up to Coeur d'Alene to counter-protest them. What they do is wrong, but they very much should be allowed to do it. The first amendment is, in my opinion, the most critical amendment but also the least resilient to change.

    The church is also called the Westboro Baptist Church. That's what made me say this is too reactionary, the name isn't even known and someone is already debating whether or not they want to change the constitution.

  • I think that these people from that church have every right to protest as do any of us. However, if they are so cruel and aggressive in nature to protest at a funeral, they should be stopped in their tracks. A peaceful block is the best way to stop them. Those who oppose their tactics, should stand firm and block them from getting anywhere near the funeral. Perhaps a human fence will be effective. And if this peaceful stand-in was soiled by this church with aggression, then the police should be called out to protect them. The church members, so-called Christians could be shamed into backing down, using their own religion against them. As long as these people are blocked from the funeral, the family can grieve in peace.
