Westboro "Church" ordered to pay grieving father $11 million
I can't praise this verdict enough. I understand the "church" has a right to free speech, but they broke the law, plain and simple. And, as a result, caused a great deal of mental anguish for a father who lost his son in Iraq. So, they have been ordered to pay 11 million.
The LA Times has already condemned the decision. Interesting, it seems the only "Christian" group the LA Times supports is the one who celebrates the deaths of US soldiers...go figure. And I'm sure this will be appealed and I'm sure at some point it will land in the lap of a liberal judge who will reverse the decision. But, for now, I take some pleasure knowing that justice has been done.
And just because these lunatics call themselves Christians doesn't make it true. They are a fringe group centered around pure hatred and evil. Their very existence disgusts me, as does their misrepresentation of my faith. Their judgement day is coming one way or another.
