Westborough Baptist SUED

How the hell did I miss this?

These guys have been horrifying me for a number of years. I watched a documentary about them (Loui Therough..Therew..Therou?) a while back and they seriously are the scariest Christian Sect I have ever heard of - even trumping the damn Mormons and JWs.

Ever since the war in Iraq, the Father of the church (which mostly consists of his children, gandchildren and other relatives) has been ordering his followers to protest at soldiers funerals.

In his eyes, every soldier that dies in the war is dead because god hates homosexuals and this is apparently His way of showing that hatred.

However - it backfired in 2006, when a family was so offended they brought him to court. The church/family has now been ordered to pay $10.9 million to the family!

My only problem with it all is that this is only one family, out of the hundreds these sick fucks have been 'protesting' - it also misses the fact that this church has been protesting against gay men and women for years, including at THIER funerals.
