On March 2, 2011, the United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Westboro Baptist Church in Snyder v. Phelps, ruling 8-1 that the picketing of funerals by WBC is protected speech, addressing issues of public interest and importance, lawfully conducted.
The Court ruled that people going to a funeral are not a captive audience, and that the conduct of the WBC members is not subject to liability. The Court specifically noted that WBC members picket on public issues, on public right-of-ways, lawfully and peacefully, so you can avert your eyes.
The Court also ruled that the subjective claim that you were “outraged” is not sufficient to override the right to speak on public issues.
The Court affirmed the Fourth Circuit, which reversed a runaway angry jury’s award of $10.9 million in favor of the faithless father. Now he must face the fact that he has angered the Lord His God, and he won’t get relief by trying to silence the WBC.
We thank God, Praise His Name, and give Him all the glory, for this amazing deliverance and victory! He orders our steps, and opens the way for us to testify to this nation, and to the world!
