"Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed emergency legislation Tuesday that bars protests within 300 feet of a funeral and within an hour from its beginning or end.

Earlier in the day, the state legislature passed the measure, which targets a Kansas church whose members announced they plan to picket the funerals of the victims of Saturday's shootings in Tucson."

Funny thing about the Phelps people is that they cause other people to realize how horrible intolerance is and they change peoples opinions for the better.

Now if you don't support support tolerance for people in the military you are now against the US military and are a bad American.

God has only one religion and that is the religion of the heart... all other religions are false.

In my opinion the protesters are bad mannered. !

"The Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled that the First Amendment right to free speech protects church members who have been staging anti-gay protests at military funerals."


Sad.

Only in America. Freedom of speech is one thing, but there should be a law about respect for the dead.
