I wonder if there'd be many Attorneys out there willing to take cases against them on 'contingency' basis.
'Going legal' on them would be very expensive for bereaved families...and would there be any 'deep pockets' available in case of 'legal wins'?
I doubt these morons have any real funds or any insurance that would even entertain the thought of paying off...
But then again...if there are lawyers willing to do it in principle and do battle against those people...why not...
Indeed! As the old Arab proverb states, The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
Let's step back and take a look at what's going on here. Do these religious wackos really care about our young men and women killed in combat? Do they care about any war effort, the military, their families, or the concept of "the ultimate sacrifice?" Not really. Whether by design or by delusion, their ultimate concern is homosexual behavior. The grieving families of our brave men and women are merely means to their twisted end. In order to get publicity for their message, they have chosen the biggest emotional hijack they can find, and tied it to their cause. To them, the families of these soldiers are merely "collateral damage."
I think it's fair to say that gays are at least equally if not overrepresented in many professions. Many don't have traditional families where responsibilities consume their time and resources, so they can be found in large numbers where these kind of responsibilities would be handicaps.
I'm also fairly certain that there is a plethora of groups who are concerned about the emerging role of activist Christian groups in our government. Some of these folks are even motivated by the growth of Muslim theocracies on the other side of the pond, and fear the "religiosity creep" within Asian and European governments.
I don't know... If I had a family member who was harassed by these wingnuts, I'd go straight to the nearest flaming gay attorney seeking a name for himself, and ask for some advice. I'd also tap into some of my Jewish friends who by the way are also overrepresented in the legal profession. Politics makes for some strange bedfellows. We who get along with just about anyone and understand the strings that manipulate our movements just might have some fun with this one.
You want to know a little something about my recently deceased father? His scheming Irish nature is creeping forth, my friend. We Irish are a contrarian lot. Particularly amongst those ambitious enough to take a boat ride across the pond, we have our ways. Button pushing goes both ways. Can you imagine being represented in court by a biracial lesbian attorney wearing the star of David and sporting a buzz cut? Oh the divine comedy of it all! The devil wishes he was this clever!
Yes, Van, I know where I could tap into this kind of energy. Life is a game after all, and some of us are here for the sport of it.
