I do not understand how Mike Burlingame (1/19, Letters, “Protecting free speech”) can compare the marchers for women’s rights and the freedom marchers of the ’60s to Fred Phelps. Mr. Phelps and his band of followers are putting up terrible signs at the funerals of fallen heroes.
I would like the American Civil Liberties Union to explain how the band of followers can infringe on the rights of the families to bury their loved ones.
As a Christian and a Vietnam veteran, I find the ACLU and Phelps quite disgusting.
