Court Rules in Favor of Westboro Protesters

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that members of the Westboro Baptist Church are protected by the First Amendment when they protest military funerals, even though they do so with hateful and vile speech.

"Speech is powerful," Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the majority. "It can stir people to action, move them to tears of both joy and sorrow, and -- as it did here -- inflict great pain. On the facts before us, we cannot react to that pain by punishing the speaker."

Happy New Year

This past year has brought many challenges to our great nation. There were many battles fought for liberty, some won and some lost. Regardless, we have remained on the frontlines -- something we will continue to do in the coming year and beyond.

As we reflect on 2010, we are incredibly thankful to have so many loyal readers and supporters who have helped make The Patriot Post the Voice of Essential Liberty in a time when that voice is sorely needed.

So, from all of us, Happy New Year! We will return Monday, Jan. 3 with our first edition of 2011.

Open Thread: Merry Christmas

Today we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, born more than 2,000 years ago as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Immanuel, God with us.

Luke 2: "In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to be registered, each to his own town. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn."
