    OK, for those who don't know, here's how the WBC scam works:

    Most of Fred Phelps13 adult children are lawyers, with law degrees from Washburn University in Topeka, KS.

Over 20 years ago, they discovered that if they picketed AIDS funerals in Kansas, distraught loved ones would lose control, and physically attack the WBC protestors. They sued, and won. Sensing a major income stream, they started protesting full-time, hoping to be attacked.

    This is 100% their gameplan and has been for years.  I am pretty sure I talked about it in the last thread about these dipwads.

    I was intrigued how they make money doing their 'protests" and how the Supreme Court is protecting their livelihood...wink
