Senator Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) has introduced the Sanctity of Eternal Rest for Veterans Act of 2011, so lunatics like Fred Phelps and his so-called Westboro Baptist Church, will not be able to disrupt the funerals of our military heroes.
The United States Supreme Court ruled that Fred Phelps’ actions are protected under the First Amendment. But the SERVE Act protects the rights of families to mourn the loss of a loved one at a military funeral with the dignity and solemnity appropriate for the occasion. Senator Snowe testified before the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs hearing and also spoke with Military Families United about the SERVE Act.
