However, the absence of a state or federal ban on protests doesn't mean that the protesters haven't violated the rights of the families conducting the funerals. That disruption is clearly an invasion of privacy and a deliberate infliction of emotional distress. These are torts, and I'd be very surprised if the Supreme Court didn't find for the plaintiffs.

I think what would be a good idea would be to rent the land right across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church and put on La Cage.Deplorably Proud To Be An American

These goofballs protested at Ford's funeral. They were given a roped off area 3 blocks away, police gaurd, and a public works dump truck parked directly infront of them between their area and the church. They spent 3 hours screaming at the side of a dump truck.
They also protested at a funeral for a local SF soldier. At each area where they would set yp, the homeowners would turn on their lawn sprinklers until the Westboro bunch were a half mile down the road.

I read a while back about a guy who, when Westbro showed up in his home town, decided to set up a table across the street from the Westbro protesters and take donations for various groups that Westbro would oppose. He then sent the Phelps a thank you note showing all the money that they helped raise and to what organizations it was donated to in the name of The Westbro Baptist Church.
Pure genius.Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.
