I consider the freedom of speech (and as an atheist also the freedom of religion) much higher than any urge to get rid of these religios (please insert yor favourite insult)...
I think, the price for freedom of speech and freedom of religion is that even WBC has to be tolerated...
Freedom of speech and religion may only be tested on these groups that are not in line with your personal world-view...
