    Its interesting that these gys choose to pop up here and now, in the middle of the discussion for calls for nonviolence. It made me wonder if they weren't trying to jump inot his to be inlcuded in that discsussion for their own purposes so they can assemble at other events without threat of violence.

    These folks invoke feelings in me that make me, IMO, a lesser person. I think of them assembling at a soldiers funeral, or the funeral of that little girl, and I have to admit my thoughts toward them include violence. But, as folks correctly point out, if everyone has the freedom to assemble, why not them? I suppose they do. It protects our freedom to do the same, and shows everyone how bat **** crazy and screwed up these people are. I just wonder if there might be some legal way of keeping a minimum distance from a funeral for the sake of keeping the peace, and allowing what most of us would likely consider a reasonable right to bury a loved one without it being marred by these folks holding signs calling for the damnation of that loved one.
    That's why I loved the odea of the Hell's Angels escorting these families. It almost forces a police department to keep a safe distance between the family's service and these protestors in order to make sure the Hell's Angels don't create the need for another service.

    These folks should be allowed to protest. Perhaps if the twon government created an ordinance preventing protests a certain minimum distance from a cemetery?

    First off, they are not real Christians to some, but they are to others.

    Secondly did you just openly say you are going to commit violence, and or murder?

    I was asking a question because that seemed to me what you were insinuating you would do.
    Thanks for answering


    Regardless they have already picked in Miami according to a google search.

    I don't know if anyone's brought this up or not but in 1942, the Supreme Court ruled in a unanymous decision in Chaplinsky vs. New Hampshire that "insulting or 'fighting words,' those that by their very utterance inflict injury or tend to incite an immediate breach of the peace" are among the "well-defined and narrowly limited classes of speech [that] the prevention and punishment of...have never been thought to raise any constitutional problem."

    Glad we found the person that can make that determination. Cause I have a few questions now that we've found you.

    Are Catholics Christians?
    Mormons?
    Jehovah's Witnesses?
    Copts?
    Rastafarians?
    Protestants in general?
    Baptists?
    Lutherans?
    Anglicans?
    Baha'i?
    Unitarians?
    Anabaptists?
    The Way?
    Christian Brotherhood?
    Trinitarians?
    Unification Church?

    Please keep in mind while answering that many of these consider at least some of the others "not Christians". I await your categorically correct answers.

    This exception to free speech is very narrow indeed. If I recall correctly, one focus of the inquiry is whether the words will cause "imminent" violence.

    Man, that's tough. Could I give a percentage of how Christian these religions are, or perhaps rank them?

    None of these groups have anything to do with the WBC, or any relevance at all with the topic being discussed. Deflection fail.

    You might no more then me. I tried to google it, but couldn't get anywhere. Can anyone call themselves a baptist church, or is there some kind of accreditation for being a baptist. I know there are in Catholic churches, but no clue on the other ones.

    ^ To my knowledge, no actual baptist churches acknowledge the WBC. They distance themselves as far away as possible from that insane group. They're not baptists, or a church.

    And yes, to a certain extent, people can call themselves whatever they want. I could found the Flying Spaghetti Monster Mosque in my living room. That alone would not make me, or any other members of my mosque, Muslims.
