Westboro Baptist Church case is a loss for civility, good manners, politeness and basic decorum. Thank God the government is not in charge of enforcing any of those things.

The case is an excellent example of why federal judges are given lifetime tenure. It is almost inconceivable to think that any official subject to an election would have had the courage to correctly apply the First Amendment.

(It is important to note that the decision has no affect on the ability of communities to force the hateful likes of Westboro Church to stay away from funerals or otherwise disrupt them.)
