I say no as although it prevents people from exercising their right to free speech and peaceful, public process it is very emotionally harmful to the people attending the funeral. They should have the right to bury their loved one in peace. Protests can still be made elsewhere away from the funeral but you only have one chance to grieve a loved one as they are buried.
However state funded funerals dirty the whole situation up. Im unsure about those. I'll stand by what I've said about all private funerals though.

I don't think it should necessarily be a criminal offence (obviously depends how they're protesting) but anyone that does it can suck a ****.
Rebecca Lush Blum can FO though. And turning her back? Woo. Great.

No. It's disgusting and I don't care who is being buried.
