"Launched in 1955, Phelps' church and his family have made a name for themselves by showing up at high-profile events, preaching their hate-filled brand of Christianity. They blame homosexuals for the destruction of America.

He describes himself as an "old-time" gospel preacher who says, "You can't preach the Bible without preaching the hatred of God."

Actually, he's right, if you mean the old testament. God was a vengeful bugger.

Those people are the scum of the Earth.

I fully support freedom of speech, but freedom doesn't come free. Freedom of speech isn't without consequence. Say or do the wrong stuff and somebody's gonna bust you in the mouth. Such is life.

This statement is unprovable of course, but IMO if god existed he'd be horrified at what the nutbars have done with religion. If there is indeed a heaven and a hell, most of the fundamentalists (especially the people you've quoted above) are going to get a very rude and unpleasant surprise when their judgement comes.

More assholes hiding behind freedom of speech. Looks like that part of the constitution could use a re-write.

Can't a law be passed prohibiting this sort of unholy behaviour at funerals?

This. They're just attention whores. I don't know how they can take themselves seriously and I'm not so sure that they do.
