I’m appalled that the U.S. Supreme Court could hold First Amendment Protection of the Westboro Baptist Church against the respect, and dignity deserved by veterans groups that permits the U.S. Supreme Court to exist under our Constitution.
This highlights the need to reconsider what constitutes "Good behavior" on the part of the judiciary. According to the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution: "We the people, in Order to form a more perfect union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility...," Stop!
It says domestic tranquility. The majority of Americans object to the conduct of protesting at funerals of any sort, and most, would--and do--object to the ruling of the U.S. Supreme Courts 8-1 ruling on this issue.
First, the Constitution authorizes Legislation approved by both chambers and approved or disapproved by the President. It also permits justices to retain their seats for "good behavior" [what authorizes life tenure] and Article 19 reads: The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States [its Courts] or by any State on account of [Protesters] sex..." Therefore Congress is authorized to act.
The Bible, The Song of Solomon says: "...To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the Heaven...A time to weep, and a time to laugh, and a time to mourn...a time to keep silent and a time to speak."
Though members were sworn into the service to the Supreme Court using the Bible, they have forgotten the "Golden Rule" [Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you] for which our military families sacrificed, and service members fought, and continue to fight, to permit the U.S. Surpreme Court to remain relevant in America.
For the Court to now pander to any group under the guise of free speech, flies in the face of an earlier Ruling of this eclectic body that "Hate speech" or "Yelling fire in a crowded theatre is unprotected speech,’ both fuel the fire of chaos, death and destruction."
