Interesting decision from SCOTUS. Now the Phelps have another huge (and, notably, extraordinarily well-armed) group of people who hate them. I'd be more impressed if they actually gave a damn about the right to free speech, but all they really are are attention-whoring trolls, and, as we all know, DNFTT, so that's all I have to say about them.

As much as I hate their message and tactics, I do side with SCOTUS on this one. I think part of the grey area, especially for the LGBT communities is at what point does hate speech become unacceptible.

Have I mentions how the WBC protest at work allowed us to buy a new ice machine for our lunch program? It was our "Hell Freezes Over" fundraiser. :)

Strange
The Phelps' would pretty much have to be the Sawney Bean family to be any stranger. I've heard some of them in interviews, and they seem entirely sincere: God exists, he created everybody, and he hates almost everybody he ever made. Hell is SRO, but Heaven must be like Blackpool in the off season. Everything bad that happens to the U.S. is God punishing us for allowing gay people to exist.

Here's an interesting interview with Nate Phelps, Fred Phelps' son, who managed to break away from his nightmarish family, and is now an atheist and seems like a nice (sane) guy:
