The Rotting CryptkeeperTM fined $5K for not showing up to protest
The Green Knight pointed me to this howler. Fred and his band of family bigots were slated to picket a soldier’s funeral in Genesee County, MI. The “church members” asked for a local police detail (they received one when they graced Durham with their presence), but then they didn’t end up coming. Westboro Baptist got slapped with the $5K tab. Oh, that’s sweet! (WTOL):
An anti-gay Kansas church has been slapped with a $5,000 bill for not showing up for a military funeral in Genesee County. Mundy Township police say the group asked in advance for special police protection, but never arrived for a July 1st memorial service for Marine Lance Corporal Brandon Webb.
A church member says the bill is a joke and will be ignored. She says the Holy Ghost told them at the last minute to stay home.
Do you think that church member could have been the colorful Shirley Phelps-Roper (below)?
