    Marine's dad ordered to pay protesters' court fees but says he won't

    I wonder if any of those birther-tards(birther + retard, yeah I know its using two synonymous words together. so what) will be ordered to reimburse Obama for filing their lawsuits. That said I do not blame that man for not wanting to pay

    Marine's dad ordered to pay protesters' court fees but says he won't | Featured Story | Wichita Eagle

    BALTIMORE - The father of a Marine killed in Iraq and whose funeral was picketed by anti-gay protesters from Kansas was ordered to pay the protesters' appeal costs, his lawyers said Monday. Fox News reported today that he will defy a court order and not pay the protesters' appeal costs.

    "I don't think I'm going to be writing a check until I hear from the Supreme Court," Snyder told Fox News on Tuesday. "I'm not about to pay them anything."

    The two-page decision supplied by attorneys for Albert Snyder of York, Pa., offered no details on how the court came to its decision.

    On Friday, Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ordered Snyder to pay $16,510 to Fred Phelps. Phelps is the leader of Topeka's Westboro Baptist Church, which conducted protests at Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder's funeral in 2006.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Well it sucks, but that's the court order. But if he's willing to take the fight higher up, then that's fine too. Personally, I ****ing hate that Phelps guy. But we don't have laws against stupid, nor would I endorse any.

    This is why you got to fight fire with napalm. Some photo shopped pictures of Phelps getting ****ed in the ass by Satan on a protest sign that says "God hates faggy asswipe butt hole preachers like you" and protest outside that man's church and anywhere else he goes,especially if one of his family members has a funeral .

    The dad should have at least knocked a few of that a-hole's teeth out. THAT would have been worth the check.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    Just do not feed the troll please.

    My one question is whether this is a standard for some one filing a losing lawsuit? If it is, I can at least kinda understand, though I still don't much like it. If not, then this is just sad.

    I seriously doubt that Liberals have any kind of agenda to aid the causes of Fred Phelps in any way.

    He's definitely a creature of the religious right..... He makes being a godless commie downright attractive!
