Marine’s Father Will Not Pay Protestor’s Court Fees

Via FoxNews:

The father of a Marine killed in Iraq whose funeral was picketed by anti-gay protesters told Fox News he will defy a court order and not pay the protesters’ appeal costs. Albert Snyder, of York, Pa. was ordered to pay $16,510 to Fred Phelps, the leader of Kansas’ Westboro Baptist Church, which held protests at Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder’s funeral in 2006.

The article does not state why he was ordered to pay the costs to Fred Phelps who stood outside his son’s funeral with signs that read GOD HATES FAGS, among other disgusting things.

I’m baffled how a grieving father of a Marine – who died serving our country – would be forced to pay that worthless human being anything at all.

This seems like another one of those weird topsy-turvey upside-down events that every normal person knows should not happen, and yet it has.

If the Supreme Court doesn’t take the case and the court fees remain, I am pretty sure that the father could have a fundraiser for the money, but I completely understand his distaste for doing anything of the kind. Fred Phelps is a disgusting human being. I look at him and people like him and wonder what purpose they serve. They seem the incarnate of pure evil.

Stupids On The Right

I don’t usually turn on my own kind, but something disgusted me and I need to talk about it. A certain segment of pro-life people on the Right can be a little… how do you say… insane? I am pro-life. I believe strongly in adoption and prevention, and never in abortion. That being said, the people who have had abortions, regret it, and then create websites for their “little angel”, I’m sorry, you’re whacked. That’s creepy. And sad. And you should get counseling to deal with your decision. Along the same line, those jagoffs who post pictures of abortions? That is horrible – which is why you post them. But they offend those of us who would never in a million-bazillion years get an abortion. They offend everyone. It is what is it: lurid, horrific pictures of a murdered person. I don’t need to see that. Nobody wants to see it; it is too sad, too awful, too violent. I agree with your position, but not your tactic. In fact, your tactic makes you an emotional terrorist. Also: those morons who preach against homosexuality. It’s none of your business. Period. Find a new hobby.

Since I care about the issue of abortion, I feel it is necessary to speak out against the creeps who dominate that discussion.

I don’t care about homosexuality; those who do are just insufferable.

I care about conservatism as a whole. I’m not suggesting we should be a “big tent” party (I always hated that phrase). I’m suggesting we become a smaller tent party. Have those idiots on the fringes move closer in. Quit being the excuse the Left uses to criticize all of us.
