I'm sure you've probably heard of the infamous Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptists of Topeka Kansas. They are the one's that take any chance they can get to promote their hate speech of hating the gay community, protesting soldier funerals, and just downright crude behavior, all in the name of God.
Well, today the Supreme Court is going to hear a case where a father is suing Mr. Phelps and his family of church members. The basic court case is the idea that free speech is important to our country, and protests are allowed on public property. BUT…what about the private funerals of mourning families.
Here we go again, giving free speech to the crazies….but what if the Supreme Court decides it really is lawfully wrong? What will be the consequences? Who decides who is crazy or normal? Will people of faith ever be pushed to the side as they talk about Jesus, the abortion debate, or gay marriage issues?
This is one to look at very closely, and see what's really going on.
What do you think?
About Fred Phelps?
About the Wetboro Baptists?
About the Supreme Court Case?
And about the implications that might come down the pike in the future?
Lots of interesting things happening concerning faith stuff right now. VERY INTERESTING!!
