— Ace Sweet.
Alas, their assets consist solely of a $13,000 worth of hardcore gay pornography and six serpents they handle in their various rituals.
Update: The snakes, all male, say that Fred Phelps and family routinely molest them. They are also planning a lawsuit.
With regard to the content: seconded, this is sweet.

And some of his kids, particularly his eldest daughter, are just as hateful and evil as he is.

For a while, I wouldn't have been surprised at all if some of the Phelps gang ended up getting shot and killed by a relative driven insane by grief. Thankfully, however, it looks like they will simply be litigated to death--and now there is legal precedent to back it up.
Couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch of douchebags.

I can't say I'm thrilled about outlawing what seems to be First Amendment-protected speech.
The 1st Amendment prohibits THE F*CKING GOVERNMENT from restricting free speech.
That doesn't give every douchebag with an axe to grind the carte blanche privilege to crash a private, non-governmental event, such as a funeral.
Just as you don't have to let me have a protest march in your family room, the bereaved family is permitted to restrict who can attend their ceremony.
Courts have held that there can be protests within a certain distance (such as outside the Abortion Mills).

The Moby is strong in Fred Phelps. His Mobichlorian count is the highest ever recorded. Could he be the one the prophecy foretold, who will at last bring balance to the Pink Left and the Just Plain Red Left?

You make a fair point but I think the Republic will survive. It worked against the Klan, maybe it will work against these fuckers.

The Klan was bankrupted about ten years ago with lawsuits. Not for their opinions but for incitements that led to deaths. Of course the Klan is back, on a very small scale, they just reform as a slightly differnt organization.
As several people pointed out this is not a free speech issue. The government didn't do one thing to stop Phelps from speaking.
Totally the reverse: it was Phelps and his gang that interfered with others.

Serves the *sshats right. The Phelps clan was causing trouble out Topeka way back in the early '90s when I spent a stint as a Kansas resident and even then, they were complete scumbags.
Like Capone, you knew it was only a matter of time before some how, some way, the legal system would fall on Fred like a ton of bricks. That time is now.

I understand JSinger's concern, but I think that this is a case where the speech has crossed the line to conduct--the public disruption of a private event for the express purpose of causing emotional harm. In that case, the First Amendment doesn't apply at all. So fuck 'em.

Apparently the cult of the phelps are planning to come to Perth City, Western Australia to disrupt Heath Ledgers funeral and allready they're spouting revolting biblical abuse. They also sent a letter to Heaths parents telling them heaths in hell and they better heed phelps message or join him in hell......
Oooohhhh, They are in for a shock when (if) they get here.....Australians are much different to Americans....I dont know why the phelp whelps havent been beaten to death in america (or shot) but here in the lands down under.....We love to brawl.
I'm a Perth born dude, and I'm allready planning on contacting my ENTIRE kick-boxing crew, and I'll also stir up the aborigional gangs, and get the bikies and red-necks and we'll go and hunt down the entire cult of the whelps and beat them to death.
I'm polishing my martial arts sticks (made of Solid petrified wood) so I can hopefully get to fag fred first and crack his skull. Hopefully if Its made international news, you may even see me attack fred screaming "DIE PHELPS!!!!!! DIE MY DARLING!!!! TASTE THE DELICIOUS PAIN!!!!!!"
We can then sing "god hates fred phelps! and all his children"
and chant "Heath! Heath! Heath!! Heath!! Heath!!! Heath!!!"
