ABSTRACT
The author expresses support for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) regarding its lawsuit defending the right of the anti-gay Phelps clan to conduct demonstrations outside the funerals of American soldiers killed in Iraq. He pointed out that in the past, the ACLU has stood and defended a diverse group of clients such as a fundamentalist Christian church, a Santerian church, Oliver North and the National Socialist Party. He stressed that there are different interpretations of free speech and freedom of expression. He also called upon the GLBT community to be alert to censorship.
