    Dad of a Fallen Marine Perseveres against Protest at Military Funerals

    Dad of a Fallen Marine Perseveres against Protest at Military Funerals

    Albert Snyder, whose son, Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder, was killed in Iraq, learned Friday that a federal appeals court is requiring him to pay more than $16,000 in legal fees to the Westboro Baptist Church, a Christian fundamentalist group that demonstrates during military funerals to gain attention for its antigovernment, antihomosexual message. The group rallied at Matthew Snyder’s funeral in March 2006 in Westminster, Md., chanting antigay slogans and carrying signs such as “Thank God for dead soldiers,” says Albert Snyder’s attorney, Sean Summers.
    I hope the a**holes at Westboro Baptist get what they deserve.

    This is how they make a living, literally. Protest funerals, sue when confronted, collect "legal fees" for their "lawyer." (who happens to be in the family)

    I hope to see the headline some day "Phelps clan gunned down at rally. 30 people present, no witnesses."
