Funeral Protests

We live in a free country, but sometimes that freedom is ugly. Like the freedom of the Westboro Baptist Church to show up at funerals of fallen soldiers and wave flags saying “God Hates Fags,” “God Hates America,” “God Loves Dead Soldiers, while singing God hates America to the tune of “God Bless America.” It may be vile, but the Supreme Court ruled that their speech is protected.

The free speech of cartoonists is protected as well. Check out what they think of the Supreme Court’s ruiling in our new Funeral Protests cartoon slideshow.
