Maybe if they were burying him in their backyard, but funerals are events that cross public venues such as streets and sidewalks, and Americans have wide free speech rights on these venues. I doubt this will stand on appeal. If it does, I think I will sue Uncle Wilbur for getting shitfaced before grandma's funeral and making an ass of himself, which caused me emotional distress.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
