Westboro Baptist Church Ordered to pay $10.9 to Father of Slain Soldier

Ok, well the Westboro “Baptist Church” (a disgrace to the Baptist name and the Christian churches of America) is in the news yet again.  Al Snyder, father of slain Lance Corporal Matthew Snyder sued the church for protesting at his son’s funeral with slogans such as “God Hates Fags,” “Thank God for Dead Soldiers” and “Thank God for IEDs.”

This is the group that the motorcyclists often ride to drown out – and those riders are truly great Americans.  Now, although I think that $10.9 is a wee bit on the frivolous side here, the point stands – this church needs to be bankrupted but the victims of their hatred.  This is no way to oppose homosexuality! – ESPECIALLY exploiting the deaths of patriotic American soldiers.

Church founder, Fred Phelps, vows to get the ruling overturned, as he laughed about the deaths of soldiers – this man is NOT a Christian!  He is a bigoted old man with an extreme homophobic vendetta – and should be ashamed of himself.

This ruling needs to stand, and more states need to join Wisconsin, Oklahoma, and others, and pass laws prohibiting protesting so close to funerals.  Perhaps Phelps will one day see that this is not the way to oppose homosexuality in America, but I doubt it.
