The ACLU....

busy protecting rights again. BUT it's the rights of haters that everyone on the right and left agree shouldn't have the right to infringe on someone's most private moments in grief.

You remember the members of the Topeka, Kan.-based Westboro Baptist Church that have protested at military funerals in several states? They shout ugly things at military funerals and funerals for someone who was gay. The church seems to think that the soldiers' deaths are a sign of God punishing America for tolerating homosexuality.

Gov. Ernie Fletcher signed a new law in March that bans protests within 300 feet of memorial services, wakes and burials. Violators can be charged with first-degree disorderly conduct, punishable by up to a year in jail.

But the ACLU thinks it's too broad. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Bart McQueary, a Kentucky man who has protested alongside the church members on three occasions.

Could the ACLU be any more horrid?
