2 Sides to the Matthew Snyder Case

You may have heard that recently at the funeral for Matthew Snyder, a fallen soldier, the Westboro Baptist "Church" picketed with signs reading GOD HATES THE USA and THANK GOD FOR 9/11 and GOD KILLED MATTHEW SNYDER.

The Snyder family sued claiming the church intentionally inflicted emotional distress and won millions of dollars in the decision.

The Snyders then lost on appeal. The judges on the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals decided that the Snyder family would also be forced to pay the Westboro Baptist Church's legal fees because they lost the case, which is typical, but obviously morally wrong.

This case will go to the Supreme Court. (BTW, Bill O'Reilly picked up the Snyder family's tab.)

Here is what FOX news anchor Megyn Kelly had to say about the decision.

Here is what my favorite conservative had to say about it.
