I don't agree with your anti-gay sentiment, but I'll die for your right to spew it

by Jeremy Hooper

   The free speech enthusiasts at the ACLU are once again defending the "fag-hating" folks at the Westboro Baptist Church, this time as they challenge a Missouri law that limits their ability to picket outside of soldier's funerals.

::sigh:: If I had a dime for every time I'd heard such a complaint...

The ACLU says banning funeral pickets infringes on Westboro's rights and is unconstitutional; Westboro says God is punishing this nation because it's too accepting of homosexuality. The ghost of Thomas Jefferson asks of both assertions, "Good grief, 21st century citizens -- what the Hell did you all do to the joint?!?"
