Soldier's dad to sue Westboro Baptist Church
It's about time somebody stood up to these evil people! Albert Snyder of York, PA, the father of Lance Cpl. Matthew A. Snyder of Westminster, will sue the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka for unspecified actual and punitive damages, according to attorney Sean Summers of York. The civil suit will claim defamation, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Read the story here.
Summers said it never occurred to the elder Snyder that protesters would be at his son's funeral. "He was hoping for closure, and Mr. Snyder didn't get it,"That is so sad! I agree with Joe Kennedy that my denomination, SBC, should condemn the un-Christlike actions of these hateful people! Jesus came to love people. He died for those people that Fred Phelps and his group protest. God help us!
