  1. These people would have fit right in with the puritans burning witches. In a just world they would lose their tax exempt status for political activism.

    Luke Chapter 13

    21 ¶ Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
    22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
    23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

  2. The poor victim’s lawyer makes an excellent point. If he pays Fred Phelps, then is entitled by a SCOTUS decision to get his money back, “imagine trying to get it back from Phelps.” That 16 grand is gone down a hole straight to Hell.

    You’d think, with the SCOTUS case pending, the money could be held by the Appeals Court until after that decision. I’d also think lots of people would chip in to help the victim cover the expense. Still, though I know it’s intended for Phelps’s lawyers, it seems to me the court is enabling the Phelps clan to profit from evil.

    Somebody, somewhere, completely within the law, needs to turn the tables on those horrible creeps.

  3. To tell the truth, Code Pink annoys the hell out of me.

    First, Karl Rove is growing more and more irrelevant by the minute, and demonstrating against him just delays his long, slow slide into obscurity. The better thing to do is just ignore him. Better yet: Karl who?

    Second, I’m a huge believer in the “do unto others, etc.,” Golden Rule thing, and if right-wing demonstrators were to behave as Code Pink did to demonstrate against a progressive writer I like, it would piss me off. I would think it was wrong.

    Code Pink is all about calling attention to itself. They should hang up their silly glittery costumes and do something useful.

  4. Something’s missing in this story. If it was an everyday, run-of-the-mill protest, Phelps wouldn’t need a lawyer in the first place. Mere protesting with nothing added is a right. And York having to pay Phelps’ appeal fee? Can anyone, Maha? tell me what I’m not ‘getting?’

    I’ve protested for years, even gotten arrested, and the services of a lawyer for anything never happened.

  5. Where did I get York? Anyway, I got an answer. Snyder, the father of the slain marine filed a lawsuit against Phelps, thus his need for a lawyer. Still, Snyder getting the judgement he did continues to make no sense.

  6. Karl Rove is growing more and more irrelevant by the minute, and demonstrating against him just delays his long, slow slide into obscurity.

    Agreed, but since his obscurity’s never going to include much-deserved prison time, I’m not too fussed if the Ridiculous Imps From Heck follow him around in perpetuity. They sort of deserve each other.
