The Westboro crowd disgusts me, but this is exactly why we have a first amendment... to protect unpopular speech. There is no need for laws (or constitutional provisions) to protect speech or protests or ideas everyone agrees with. Same is true of the OWS twits. I think they're morons, but so long as they obey the law (which they're not too good at) they have a right to express their views.
Nobody respects the military or those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country more than I do. These people died to protect the freedoms enshrined in our Constitution, including the rights of a-holes to express their views.
To my mind, the greatest thing about the first amendment is it allows idiots and low-life scum to self-identify... and they can't help themselves... they do it every time. That way the rest of us know who they are and can avoid them like the plague.
When did ignorance become a point of view?
