Halloween Hallelujah

There's good news this Halloween eve: some of the most grotesque creatures on the American political landscape got backhanded by the US judicial system today. A jury in York, Pa. has awarded the father of a slain Marine $11 million for compensatory and punitive damages and emotional distress, to be taken from the hide of the members of the Westboro Baptist Church of Kansas. Those horrible people picketed the Marine's funeral, screaming "Thank God for Dead Soldiers" and "God Hates Fags." They in effect told mourners the Marine died as a sign of God's disfavor with America for its tolerance of homosexuality. I doubt this verdict will diminish their zeal, but they might not have the funds to travel to all these funerals once they realize they have to pay this huge sum of $$$.

It couldn't have happened to a nicer group. You can read all the details here.

Fred Phelps is such a tool. I've hit him a couple of times on this blog in the past. I feel for the kids in that zealot's family, they are indoctrinated from birth.
