    BALTIMORE (AP) - A grieving father won a $2.9 million verdict Wednesday against a fundamentalist Kansas church that pickets military funerals out of a belief that the war in Iraq is a punishment for the nation's tolerance of homosexuality.

    Albert Snyder of York, Pa., sued the Westboro Baptist Church for unspecified damages after members demonstrated at the March 2006 funeral of his son, Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder, who was killed in Iraq


    Update
    A grieving father won a nearly $11 million

    The jury first awarded $2.9 million in compensatory damages. It returned later in the afternoon with its decision to award $6 million in punitive damages for invasion of privacy and $2 million for causing emotional distress.

    Excellent, and a much easier and lighter punishment than I would've liked to dish out the day of the funeral if I were a relative of the soldier being laid to rest! :mad:
  3. Now that is good news! Perhaps there really are still some folks around who understand what justice means!

    Yeah, but now he has to try and collect....maybe we sould all go and try and help him "collect..."

    Those people are warped and despicable, the Pastor's wife was on FOX the other night and she was just a hate-filled irrational bible mis-quoting shell of a human being.
  5. I have to agree, Polish. It's really sad when people try to use religion as a shield and justification for their petty prejudices and stupidity.

    I believe I could find Kansas again, much as I would rather stay here in Idaho. Sounds like a good road trip.:D catfish

    I hope he does collect.
  13. Yup, so do I, Pick. Foreclose on their so-called church, I say, then take their placard signs and shove them . . . well, you get the picture. :cool:
