On A Roll

Forgive me, I can not remember the name of that soldier who was killed in this current war, and was shipped home to be laid to rest. And those bunch of religious nit-wits showed up with their signs saying, " This Is God's Punishment On America For Allowing Gay Rights". Plus other signs that spelled out some putrid statements.
I can not fathom the feelings of that father and family having to deal with not only the untimely death of their loved one, but the onslaught of whacked out religious crazies showing up at their dear son's funeral.
Then the father tries to sue these people with what is an essential assault to their privacy in what should have been and deserved to be ,a very sacred and private ceremony.
But the courts wanted to uphold the First Amendment of the right of free speech. Then I heard this was going to the Supreme Court.

Now, I have something for you to think about: Why is our government allowed to select and rope off,with guards, a certain distance from where the President speaks. Free speech or not, you are not allowed within a mile and a half when the big man come to your town. So how come no one runs to court to sue the President for not allowing them to yell out, verbally assault,him?
It would simply be unthinkable to have the crowds so unruly and disrespectful!

So, why can't we give that same sacred space for those who have fought and died for our country? That would make some good common sense.

I think I'll send this to Glen Beck.

  1. Unfortunately, we are stuck with listening to disgusting things when free speech is for everyone. There always has to be the one's who ruin it for everyone else.

    I think that this particular incident went beyond free speech and stepped into harrassment.
    These poor people were targets at their own son's funeral. I am ashamed of what this country is turning into.
