Congress Bars Funeral Protesters

WASHINGTON - Demonstrators would be barred from disrupting military funerals at national cemeteries under Legislation approved by Congress and sent to the White House Wednesday.

The measure, passed by voice vote in the House hours after the Senate passed an amended version, specifically targets a Kansas church group that has staged protests at military funerals around the country, claiming that the deaths were a sign of God's anger at U.S. tolerance of homosexuals

This should have been done long ago. It's a shame that it even needs to be done.

It really is a shame that this was even needed. I like the old rules better. "They needed killin" would have been an acceptable defense:)
