So I saw an article that mentioned their name and I started watching the BBC series "The Most Hated Family in America", an 8 part series about an embedded journalist who stays with them for several days. He interviews the members, and pretty much follows them around.
Now as an Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran, I've heard of this group for a long time. You'd have to live under a rock to not have heard of them. I strongly disagree with their message, but I do believe in their freedom to express their views in public. They are also fairly intelligent, just strongly misled. Some of them are in college, and the main woman in charge is a lawyer.
Anyways, lead me to thinking. What do you guys think about the churches rights to protest? I understand freedom of speech and everything. What about the rights of the family of fallen soldiers, and deceased homosexuals, et cetera? Should there be federal laws created to prevent harassment on this? I don't think they should be allowed in eyesight or hearing of a funeral. If they want to picket, that's fine, they just can't be seen by the actual funeral progression.
