Freedom of speech has more than one side to it.  Not all speech is intelligent or responsible.

The Westboro Baptist Church is best known for picketing soldiers' funerals.  They have plans to picket Betty Ford's public memorial services in both Palm Desert, California and Grand Rapids.  They will be at the Grand Rapids memorial service at 1:00 on Thursday.  

It makes to sick to think of any member of the Ford family having to see hateful picket signs at a time of such sorrow.

I agree with the U.S. Supreme Court's 8-1 ruling in March that this organization has the right to picket.  They have the right.  It's just a shame that they abuse that right.

If you want to read their hateful "news release" for yourself you can do so here. It will raise your blood pressure.
