Syndicated Conservative Columnist Cal Thomas said today in the Miami Herald:
Suggesting that a member of the military (Snyder) died because God is judging America for the way it treats homosexuals is worse than outrageous. It is the moral equivalent of crying "fire" in a crowded theater when there is no fire, which by the way is not protected speech. The Supreme Court was right to take this case. It should rule in favor of the Snyder family and put a stop to Fred Phelps (Westboro Baptist Church) and his spiritually corrupt family. They are by no decent standard serving God. In fact, quite a good case could be made that they are in service to God's adversary.
