i would like to applaud the Supreme Court for ruling correctly, i believe, and defending the free speech rights of the reprehensible fred phelps cult. they are evil people, and what they say is awful, but they should absolutely have the right to say it. however, rights carry responsibilities.
that is, if i were to have a friend or relative die in war, they have a right to lawfully assemble and protest. but they also have the responsibility of dealing with the repercussions of their free speech. specifically, those repercussions would be multiple contusions and broken bones caused by me.
