I can't be the only American here finding it disturbing that a government can ban you for saying things the public or it don't agree with.

There's freedom of speech, then there's just outright verbal abuse. Canada, and the UK as well, since they also banned them, are not interested in having some brainwashed idiots picketing against their dead and grieving citizens. And You find it disturbing that we don't? come on, man!

Welcome to the illusion of freedom and rights.   
you have the right and freedom to say what you want.   
But the government have the right to take away your rights if it suits them.   
and rights are not rights is they can be taken away.

As a homosexual, I get a lot of stick, but I can understand and respect when people put forth a well constructed anti-gay argument.

HOWEVER Westboro have nothing; they're just saying "God hates America" and "God hates fags" and god hates this, that, and the other.
Which completely contradicts their bibles when says God loves all, and is forgiving. They're using their religion as a weapon, and a shield to hide behind.

Leviticus is like playing Christanity on hard mode, and not even that says anything about God hating anyone of any race, sex, sexuality, nationality or ability.

But this is how the freedom works.
You have right to say whatever you want.
BUT
I don't have to agree or support you in any way. I have a RIGHT to think you are an idiot and make you stay off my property.
Lets put it this way. I'm not going to go to guy next door's yard and shut him up when he is saying horrible things to people. but I sure as hell won't let him come in MY house and say that to MY family.

I'm American and despite the fact that westboro is just a bunch of brainwashed ****** faggots, i don't think that should make it so there freedoms are taken away. They have a freedom of express and even though none of us like it including myself it's still there right. If you take their freedoms away, you set a precedent for anyone to have there freedoms taken away.

TL;DR If you take away someone's rights just because you don't like it, then anyone's rights can be taken away because you don't like them. Inb4 red thumbs

Freedom carries responcibliy.
You have right to say what you want, but you also have to accept that there are consequences of your actions.
If neighbor's kid is horribly foulmouthed bully, I'm not going to slap him around and tell him to shut up. I'm not even going to go to his parents and demand they shut him up and keep him under control. I am, on the other hand, say that he can't come into my house and play with my kids.
That is MY right.

Yes. When those things are hate, why are they allowed.

If you went around shouting ****** at all black people you see, then get them arrested when they hit you and say "i'm allowed to say what I like under free speech", I recon you'd be ****** then, why not in this case?
