Sigh. Some comments from the Westboro Baptist attorney who was victorious today in Snyder v. Phelps.
We are trying to warn you to flee the wrath of God, flee the wrath of destruction. What would be more kind than that…. Shut up all that talk about infliction of emotional distress. When you’re standing there with your young child’s body bits and pieces in a coffin you’ve been dealt some emotional distress by the Lord your God….
And what did Phelps have to say about Justice Alito’s dissenting opinion?
“He simply didn’t follow his oath, he’ll have to take that up with God. I very much appreciate the fact that I get to be the mouth of God in this matter.”
The Church will apparently quadruple funeral protests going forward.
