Angry Bikers Chase Westboro Protestor Out Of Joplin CBS St. Louis

Angry Bikers Chase Westboro Protestor Out Of Joplin
May 31, 2011 6:30 AM
angry, Baptist, bikers, chase, church, Joplin, Obama, protestor, Westboro JOPLIN, Mo. (KMOX) - Three hundred bikers turned out in Joplin over the weekend to turn the tables on a notorious anti-gay church.

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church of Kansas had planned to protest President Obamas appearance to mark the terrible devestation left behind by the May 22nd tornado.



But only one church member showed up, and when the bikers found out about it they started to chase after him.

The church protestor needed police protection to escape injury and get out of town.

Free speech has consequences...saying what you want, in certain circumstances, occasions freedom to assemble by those that disagree.

So, mob rule beats freedom of speech? Just wonderin. That's what it sounds like.

I do not like those tools from that church, I resent the heck out of their calling themselves Christians, and I do not like what they say.
But I'd fight to protect their constitutional right to say it. Just as I'd fight to protect mine. *


*AS LONG AS the use of those rights do not intrude on the rights of others. Then all bets are off.

Those nice young cyclists simply wished to engage in some peaceful verbal discourse with said protester. Certainly the right of free speech applies to them as well?
