The father of Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder, Albert, has been ordered to pay some $16k to Fred Phelps, head of the Westboro Baptist Church, to cover Phelps’ legal fees in defending his right to picket the fallen sailor’s funeral; Snyder was already awarded a $5 million verdict. And now that their case is heading to the Supreme Court? Things are gonna get quite pricey.

    Where do you begin with this clusterfuck???? Pathetic, disgusting, revolting, vile, decision……….The inmates are now officially running the asylum…….

    This is wrong on so many levels, and more of this disgusting behavior will probably come out since people will feel immune. Yes, free speech, etc, but I hope that when one of the phelp’s die the GLTBQ community and military families come out to picket en masse.

    This story makes me die inside.

    There is a special place in Hell reserved for Mr. Phelps.

    On the upside, if I ever see Mr. Phelps or his ilk, I will personally take him out.

    This kind of vile, revolting thing is why America needs Western Europe’s hate speech laws.

    @Devon: Nah, no reason to shit all over the constitution… someone should just shoot that motherfucker and his whole fucking family. Save everyone a lot of trouble.

    For those pacifist nancy boys out there… yes, i am advocating violence against WBC. I think someone should fucking murder them.
