Carmen Benjamin from Malden, Missouri:
(Regarding Mike Smythe's ViewPoint),(11/4/07-Westboro Church Verdict) "...members of the Westboro Baptist Church are despicable morons...I'm ashamed to live in the same country with these degenerates...they are American morons and the first amendment applies to them.  We need to be very careful that in trying to silence their hateful speech we don't also silence legitimate protesters who may seek to petition their government through dramatic action...I am a veteran, a lesbian (and) an American...I'm grateful to live in a country where free speech is the right of every citizen."
Jackie Mayo from Tiptonville, Tennessee:
"(Mike Smythe) was right on the money with his comments about the judge's verdict on the deplorable actions by the members of the Westboro church.  Just because you park your jackass in a garage does not make it a car.  Has respect for the dead become a forgotten thing in this country?"
Gina Dirnberger from Scott City, Missouri:
"Funerals are a private function not public...protesting a soldier's funeral and what they believe to be the nation's tolerance of homosexuality...I don't get it!!  Kudos to the judge that found them guilty."
