I'm not really sure that the basis of this lawsuit is sound, but I'm happy that people are offering to step up and help this family pay the fees.

I think the "church" is really just his family.

The judge who ordered the father to pay Phelps should be hung on a meathook! Period!!!

You do realize that there are legal guidelines for awarding costs in cases?

I hate those people. Fred Phelps and his band of merry a'holes are going to hell.
How can Fred Phelps and his cult call themselves Christians? I believe in Jesus. And would never hurt others the way these nut jobs have. Please don't think that all Christians are like this. We are not. I don't hate gay folks, soldiers, or anyone else for that matter. It is not what Jesus taught. These so called Christians need to read the New Testament. The message is simple..."Love one another as I have loved you."

I'm gonna throw a goddamned party at Fred Phelps' funeral. He had scheduled a protest at my school when I directed The Laramie Project and called me and all of my administration "fag enablers" but the chicken shit didn't show up!

BTW, his church is not "accepted" by most of the religious community - he's been defrocked or excommunicated or whatever, I'm pretty sure.

Really?

Phelps disrupts this poor family's funeral and gets paid for it? Really?

Wow. Days like this, I really really hate America. Protest if you want to, but dammit, have the respect for a grieving family to NOT do this while they are burying their child. Phelps should be paying these people, not the other way around.

oops, Martha already pointed out that his "church" is merely family members.

Where can we donate to this poor family?

Christianity-based cults always baffle me. They come up with some crap that completely contradicts 2000 years of teachings and somehow sucker people into following their whacked out ideas.

you are correct, you have a background in law and understand how these things work

if they had just ignored Phelps or had a counter protest directed at them, they would have had a much better result, the lawsuit was ill-advised from the get go.

Lighten up, Francis.

As anitram said, there are legal guidelines that judges can't ignore or change just because they or you vehemently dislike one or more of the parties involved.

I think so too.....and maybe a few other misguided souls. This is what traditional Christians, Protestant and Catholic would call a cult. As someone stated above. Phelps' teachings goes against what other Christians believe. He has taken 2000 years of doctrine and twisted it into his way of thinking.

Traditional Protestants and Catholics believe that all can share in the Kingdom of Heaven. Not just Christians. This is where the idea of "Grace" comes in.
