Thanks Howie for alerting us.
The father of a Marine who gave his life for his country in Iraq is being forced to pay the Westboro cult’s court costs.
The Baltimore Sun reported, via FOX Nation:
Lawyers for the father of a Marine who died in Iraq and whose funeral was picketed by anti-gay protesters say a court has ordered him to pay the protesters’ appeal costs.
On Friday, the Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ordered that Albert Snyder of York, Pa., pay costs associated with Fred Phelps’ appeal. Phelps is the leader of the Westboro Baptist Church, which conducted protests at the funeral of Snyder’s son, Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder, in Westminster in 2006.

The Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit just spit in the eye of a Marine hero and his family by requiring them to pay money to these assholes:
