God Hates The Westboro Baptist Church

Pastor Fred W. Phelps Sr., Shirley L. Phelps-Roper, Rebekah A. Phelps-Davis and Westboro Baptist Church had picketed the funeral of a Marine invading the privacy and inflicting intentional emotional distress on the family last year.

A federal district court in Maryland found them guilty and awarded Albert Snyder, father of the Marine compensatory and punitive damages totaling $5 million which means property owned by the three named Phelps family members and the church itself would be confiscated.

There is also the matter of tax exemption for the truck they use for transporting picket signs saying how God hates: Fags, America, The Marine Corps, Ireland, Sweden, Catholics, Double Dippers , Shrimp and Bloggers.

The law requires that a property must be used exclusively for religious purposes to be exempt from taxation and that some of the messages were political.

Margie Phelps as part of her argument said that the signs aren't political.

"If any member of this church were to endorse a political candidate which they never do it would be the kiss of death," she said.

It looks like the beginning of the end for this fanatical sect it seems that even in America the land of free speech its best to shut your mouth sometimes if you're a moron.

Did you see that Louis Theroux documentary.

The one in that photo came across as completely insane, one of those really annoying "bubbly" sorts and at the same time repeatedly saying "you're going to hell, silly".
