Family of Dead Marine Ordered To Pay Westboro Blood Money

Just when I think our judicial system can not get anymore absurd they prove me wrong and delve into new depths.

A judge has ordered the father of a dead Marine to reimburse Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist legal fees associated with a court case in which the homophobic, gay-bashing, mentally-unhinged, inbreeding cult had filed an appeal to earlier case. The case is also pending before the Supreme Court, but this judge decided to issue a ruling before the Supreme Court could weigh in on the case.
Lawyers for the father of a Marine who died in Iraq and whose funeral was picketed by anti-gay protesters say a court has ordered him to pay the protesters' appeal costs.

On Friday, the Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ordered that Albert Snyder of York, Pa., pay costs associated with Fred Phelps' appeal. Phelps is the leader of the Westboro Baptist Church, which conducted protests at the funeral of Snyder's son, Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder, in Westminster in 2006.

Lawyers for Snyder say the Court of Appeals has ordered him to pay $16,510.80 to Phelps for costs relating to the appeal, despite the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to review the Court of Appeals' decision.
It wasn't bad enough that these bottom-feeding, subhuman oxygen thieves protested the funeral of this young man, but to order the father to pay for their frivolous lawsuit is just further insult to injury.

I hate the scum-sucking Westboro Church Family Cult with every fiber of my being, in case you haven't noticed, and just a suggestion: In order to make sure the payment is secure and everything, Mr, Snyder might want to look at adopting a former military working dog to deliver the extortion money to Phelps in person. I mean dogs suffer from PTSD too and, well, things happen.

Just saying.

UPDATE: (Via Gateway Pundit) I called Sean E. Summers law offices this morning and asked how we can help. They already set up this website– http://www.matthewsnyder.org/.

You can donate to the Snyder family– here.
