Show Me State lawmakers move to silence Show Me Hate protesters

by Jeremy Hooper

    Following in the footsteps of Indiana state Sen. Brent Steele, Missouri state Sen. Charlie Shields (R) and state Rep. Martin Rucker (D) proposed a law on Friday that would make funeral protests, popularized by the hate artisans at Westboro Baptist, illegal in the Show Me State.

For those whom decency is not enough to dictate proper burial etiquette, the proposal would reportedly make it illegal to protest at or near a funeral from an hour prior to an hour after the service. In response to this possibility, we do hear that Westboro is already busily developing contingency plans, should the proposal become law:
