I am seriously disturbed by this. So you probably have heard about the Westboro Baptist Church whose members frequently picket at funerals of US soldiers killed in the war. They believe that God is punishing the US for the sins of homosexuality by killing these soldiers. How fucked up is that? A father of one of the soldiers sued the church, and now has been ordered to cough up $16,000 to pay for the church's legal fees because those crazy people had the rights to picket at his son's funeral. Fuck the first amendment. Yes, everyone should enjoy the freedom of speech, and you can say whatever you want, but you have to take responsibility for what you say. You can't just simply defame someone or hurt other people with your words. Freedom of speech isn't exactly free. Is it just me, or does it seem like being crazy is the prerequisite for being religious these days?
