Breaking: Supreme Court Rules Westboro Can Protest Military Funerals

The US Supreme Court ruled Wednesday morning against the father of a dead marine who objected to the presence of Fred Phelp's inbred clan at his son's funeral.

ABC News reports:
The Supreme Court has ruled that the First Amendment protects fundamentalist church members who mount attention-getting, anti-gay protests outside military funerals.

The court voted 8-1 Wednesday in favor of the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan. The decision upheld an appeals court ruling that threw out a $5 million judgment to the father of a dead Marine who sued church members after they picketed his son's funeral.

  1. I absolutely love this article you must be so proud to own these things. Like so many women who wear size 11, I find myself mourning because another pair of it is yet out of my reach. It's Ok! There are so many other fabulous shoes out there for the full-footed girl. If you're a big foot girl check out my shoe blog designed specifically for women who wear sizes 10 and up, Your Feet Make You Unique.
