Ok This is just way too Outrageous!!!

Let the families grieve in peace

They have suffered enough by the loss of their child,
husband or wife

It’s just plain WRONG to be doing a Protest such as

Regardless of a person view of the politics or the reasons
for the war

A soldier’s funeral is no place for public demonstration


Do what you can at the local level to bring this to the gov’ts
attention & to prevent such demonstrations from happening – it should
be illegal to protest publicly at any funeral but especially at a soldier’s

Dear Theresa,

I need your

The ACLU is at it again – supporting groups that are targeting military
funerals all over the country – and I need your help to stop them.

Now the families
and friends of our brave fallen heroes are not only suffering the tragic
loss of their loved one – they are being followed by the threat of ugly
protests marring their final moments with the deceased – protests
defended by the ACLU!

We cannot allow this to happen any longer!

It is imperative
that we act now – but the challenge is so extensive, I am asking for your
help today.

You can help protect the memory of our brave
fallen soldiers by making your voice heard through a nationwide

As we write
legal memorandums and file amicus briefs, we’ll stand for your
values.  I want military families to know that tens of thousands of
Americans are standing with them in honor of their loved ones.

To support these
families even further, we will be urging the highest state officials to
do everything in their power to protect military funerals from disruption
by protestors – including passage of new laws across the country which
will settle this issue once and for all – through our online PETITION TO OUR NATION’S GOVERNORS.

The ACLU appears
to be conducting a systematic attack on military families who have lost
loved ones, assailing their "right to grieve."  We will
not rest while such outrages continue.

We are committed
to dispatching lawyers as needed at military funerals targeted for
, as well as
filing amicus briefs in cases and working with city and county
officials who want to help these beleaguered families

HEROES and adding your name to our online PETITION TO OUR NATION’S
GOVERNORS, you are helping the ACLJ continue to stand firm for all of
your hard-won constitutional freedoms.

The law
recognizes that the First Amendment is not a "blank check." 
Reasonable regulations on the time, place, and manner of speech
are also constitutional, especially at an event like a funeral.

Thank you for
your patriotism and faithful support of the ACLJ!
