Supreme Court Considers Constitutionality Of Military Funeral Protests
Hate speech projects and perpetuates hate. It is one of the oldest forms of terrorism. It is socially destructive.
The right of free speech is not unlimited. When speech begins to infringe on the rights of others, it must be determined who has the prevailing rights. When the intention is to create pain or fear, when it can even drive one to suicide, the public has an interest in limiting that speech.
A funeral is a sacred, and usually religious ceremony that takes place on hallowed ground. I would absolutely support the First Amendment rights, both speech and religion, of the funeral party over the same rights of the intruders.
