Supreme Court Hears First Amendment Case On Protests At Military Funerals
WASHINGTON - OCTOBER 06: Margie Phelps talks with reporters after making oral arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in the case Snyder v. Phelps, which tests the limits of the First Amendment, October 6, 2010 in Washington, DC. Albert Snyder sued the Westboro Baptist Church after his son, Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder, was killed in Iraq in 2006 and members of the church held signs and demonstrated outside his funeral. The church and its members preach that U.S. deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq are punishment for Americans' immorality, including tolerance of homosexuality and abortion.
