God Hates Fags - an expensive proposition

Westboro Baptist Church has lost a court case in Maryland and now owes $11 million to a father of a dead soldier.

Church members strongly believe that the War in Iraq is our punishment for tolerance of homosexuality. To that end, they held a protest in March 2006 during the funeral of Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder, who was killed in Iraq. Here are some of the signs that the group used during the protest:
  • God Hates Fags
  • Thank God for Dead Soldiers
  • God Hates Fag Enablers
  • God is Your Enemy
Church activists (Fred Phelps is the leader) believe that the ruling will be overturned on appeal and do not plan to stop protesting at other funerals.

In case you really wanted to see who God's favorite homophobe is, here he is. Meet Fred Phelps:
