Why do you guys stand the Westborough Baptist church.....

If they were allowed into our country we'd have kicked seven shades of ***** out of them.

because we may not agree with what they say, but we'll defend to the death their right to say it.

There's a massive difference between free speech and hate speech.
User avatar #278 to #274 - teranin ONLINE (07/29/2013) [-]
In the USA, people are free to hate on each other. Speech is only limited when it comes to slander and libel, no lying to connontate illegal or character-destroying acts for people or companies. Aside from that, speech is free regardless of what it is

In American law Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress waives your right to free speech.

They shouldn't be protected under the First Amendment if they are protesting funerals.

actually, no, it doesn't. There is no law on a federal level expressing such a context. Only when it can damage someone financially is it illegal, that's why hate groups even exist here in the states, and why the government hasn't arrested half of tumblr for endorsing and plotting genocide against males. As it turns out, it's covered by free speech.

Ahh it seems the Snyder v Phelps (2011) guarantee's that hate speech is protected.

Pretty sad that the justice system could fail so horribly.

depends on your definition of failure.  I for one support the idea of free speech being near absolute, because the way people take what people say is far too subjective to effectively enforce anti-hate, more than likely you would end up arresting a lot of people who were actually saying pretty insightful things, just because some mamby-pamby couldn't take a little criticism.

I read it like "UFC." You can imagine how confused I was.

Seems like they have changed. I don't remember them protesting with half naked women, saying love is the answer. I'm not against this change.

I was at Metrocon in Tampa and there was some guy yelling that we were sinners.
I had no idea watching a type of animation was a sin, and I'm a Christian.

Awesome! I live like 10 minutes away from UCF.

I'm currently reading 'Banished: Surving My Years in the Westboro Baptist Church' and Lauren explains that the more people who come to their protest and give them attention, even if it's a counter protest, the more they feel they've succeeded. They think their job from "God" is to warn everyone that they're going to Hell, so as long as people are hearing their message, they're happy.
So I've been thinking, why don't people start counter protesting by turning their backs to them?

Somebody should totally dress up as the Emperor and stand beside Westboro Baptist Church and preach about how he controls them and challenge the jedi to a duel. Both would of course be in on it.
#226 - xxxsonic fanxxx (07/29/2013) [-]
You claim that there is intolerance and hate with them. But the Jedi is doing the same thing. Just more silently.

Someone dress up as Heimskr and preach Talos
#208 - xxxsonic fanxxx (07/29/2013) [-]
Yes, because "Loves cures all" is a message of the utmost hate.
