Snyder v. Phelps will be First Amendment test for Supreme Court

Today, the nine U.S. Supreme Court justices will hear Snyder v. Phelps. Under our First Amendment, there seem to be very few social lines that cannot be crossed in this country. Flags can be burned, Nazis can march, profanity can be displayed, according to the U.S. Supreme Court. Will waving signs that proclaim "God Hates America" and "God Hates Fags" and "Thank God for Dead Soldiers" outside a funeral for a fallen serviceman fit there too?
