Religious right wackjob ordered to pay $11m for protesting military funerals/gays

The religious right always says that their hate-wrapped-in-God, their protests of our troops’ funerals (because, get this, America is too gay so they’re protesting our dead soldiers) is protected by freedom of religion. The religious also argues that their right to fire gays from a job simply because their gay, their right to not rent an apartment or sell a home to gays, is all protected by their freedom of religion (no word on how they feel about the religious justification for discrimination against Jews or blacks – they’re awfully silent on that one, what a surprise). Well, now a court has found against them to the tune of $11m.
