    Anti-Gay Church Must Pay Marine's Family

    Anti-Gay Church Must Pay Marine's Family

    A Kansas church has been ordered to pay $3,150 for costs and fees associated with a summons and complaint filed by the father of a Marine whose funeral was picketed by the extremist group.

    Albert Snyder, of York, Pa., is suing the Rev. Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist Church after church members demonstrated at the funeral of Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder, of Westminster, and posted pictures of the protest on their Web site.

    Lance Snyder was killed in Iraq in March. Members of the Topeka church claim U.S. soldiers are killed as God's punishment for America's tolerance of homosexuality.

    His father's federal lawsuit, filed June 5, alleges church members violated the family's right to privacy and defamed the Marine and his family at the funeral and on the church's Web site.

    Phelps and the church refused to grant a waiver in the serving of summonses in connection with the federal lawsuit, making the church liable for those costs.

    Court documents say the church has 30 days to make the payment to Snyder.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Those of us in Kansas dislike this nutjob in a major way. I wouldn't cry a tear if they left the state never to return. All those who have been harmed by these nuts need to sue as well.

    That's what I'm thinking. Sue their asses for harassment, defamation, hell even child corruption. Beat them into oblivion the same way they've been getting away with things - with lawsuits.

    They have even messed up their own kids heads, maybe child protective should get into this.
    I think everyone should sue them for stress, I know I get stressed out every time I hear about them.
    If you can't do it from a boat. Do you really want to do it?

    I would love to see those people go down. What they do really pisses me off and I hope it all stops soon.
