|Westboro Baptist Church hater-in-chief, the "Reverend" Fred Phelps|
|Who actually does this? Westboro Baptist Church has 80 members including young children that also wear hate attire.|
So Phelps and Westboro stand with their 1st Amendment protections intact. It is as it should be. However, dear readers, that does not invalidate your own rights on this issue. Don't hesitate to express your own views on the Westboro practice of plaguing the funerals of those they don't know or care about. Don't hesitate to use cyberspace to dismiss Fred Phelps and his followers as moralizing neanderthals representing nobody but those within their church's walls. And for god's sake don't hesitate to contact your congressional representative to question the tax free status of any church demonstrating so publicly regarding a political issue.
