WASHINGTON (AP) -- The House voted Tuesday to restrict demonstrations at military funerals, a measure aimed at a Kansas church group that has carried its anti-gay message to the last rites for those killed in Iraq. "We will not allow the repugnant acts of a few to define who we are as Americans," said Veterans' Affairs Committee Chairman Steve Buyer, R-Ind., before the 408-3 vote on the "Respect for America's Fallen Heroes Act." Buyer spoke at a news conference joined by motorcyclists who attend military funerals to shield families from the anti-gay protesters. Protesters, led by the Rev. Fred Phelps of Topeka, Kan., claim that U.S. military deaths in Iraq are a sign of divine punishment for America's tolerance of homosexuals. http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/M/MILITARY_FUNERALS?SITE=DCSAS&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT I'm glad the House got off it's butt to do something. This has nothing to do with free speech, and everything to do about a hate group.
