Westboro Baptist Church Called Out in Arizona

I believe wholeheartedly in the First Amendment. It’s the foundation that free thought, skepticism, and balanced journalism are built on. To change it even in the slightest would jeopardize any number of things without which we cannot better ourselves as individuals, as a community, as a country, or as a species. However, it’s time to stop using it as an excuse to protect the religious faithful from the natural consequences of their intolerance and hatred. The targets of their abhorrent use of their rights have rights too.
