But isn't there anybody among you who could take the Phelps clan out behind a woodshed somewhere and dispose of them? Everybody would be much happier.
Wouldn't squelching the likes of Phelps also condone squelching the right to speak of others? As much an idiot as Phelps may be, he's only voicing his opinon. As long as he keeps his hands to himself, that is.

I think this is rather apropos:

"In Germany, they came first for the Communists, And I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist;
And then they came for the trade unionists, And I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist;
And then they came for the Jews, And I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew;
And then . . . they came for me . . . And by that time there was no one left to speak up."
-- Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892-1984)

The goal of Computer Science is to build something that will last at least until we've finished building it.
