    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. Those that are still in the church practice in the family law firm, Phelps Chartered, LLC. Phelps himself had been disbarred in 1979 for perjury, but his children carried on the law firm. 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
