Video: Westboro thankful for anti-windfall

by Jeremy Hooper

Responding to the costly verdict that has been cast against them, the Phelps family has fired up the trusty video camera and committed their patented form batsh*t craziness to digital video.

Geez, how many of them are there? Is it a cult or a frickin' clown car?!

But it was nice to get a tour of the Westboro compound. That was sort of like an episode of "MTV Cribs," except with all the "bling bling" replaced with lots of "cuckoo, cuckoo."

Thank God for 10.9 Million [YouTube]

Your thoughts

I can't find any new words that have not already been said to describe how much these people have lost their minds. It is too much for me to comprehend anymore.

I have only one question to Fred Phelps and his hateful family. If they follow god's word right down to the very last period, why haven't they have a slave tribe in their backyard since the bible says slavery is okay. If they don't have slaves, then they are going against God's word.

This is what happens when you allow breeding within immediate family members. 0_o

All their church members are related to one another so one wonders what sort of off the wall church they have.

Do you people not have social services who can remove these children from such harmful parents.

These idiots are embarrasing your country "Worldwide".

Read www.newsnow.co.uk and head for the gay section.

In the UK they would be seen as people with severe issues and arrested on sight.

First amendment fair enough, but the law allowing these freaks to picket funerals. Thats Sick...

Your Country really is fucked.

Try that in the UK and your Jailed. Its called respecting common ground.

I agree with the Phelps on one thing, bye bye USA as a world power.

Perhaps we can all stop worrying in our beds over who is going to blow the shit out of whom next over Oil.

I hope this law suit bring others to follow suit. I hope their little church goes "bankrupt". I think the father should have gotten more. Can't omagine what it's like to bury your son with these nut jobs picketting.

Don: But see, that's the point of this article -- separating the emotional from the lawful. And the fact that this case was decided by a jury rather than a judge highlights that this could have been decided largely on emotion.

Yes, 99.9% of the planet thinks Westboro is disgusting. Trust me -- I deal with them personally all the time. I get it! But the matter at hand is whether or not this sets a dangerous precedent.

**It also should be noted that they were NOT at the funeral, but rather a reported 1,000 feet away.
