Supreme Court ruling was wrong in my eyes



To the editor:

Concerning the Supreme Court ruling in the case of Snyder vs. Phelps: Who is Fred Phelps to go around playing God to judge everyone except himself? I am not for gay marriage, but I don't tell people how to live their lives. To each his or her own.

But I feel and believe, as I noted in a past letter, that people should be able to mourn/grieve in peace over their loved ones — whether it be a military funeral or not, without those Westboro Baptist so-called Christians picketing nearby.

For the Supreme Court to claim that it's free speech in the ruling in favor of Phelps is wrong in my eyes, but now that they know they are protected under the First Amendment, they will keep going with these hateful acts.
