One thought on “Westboro Baptist Church

  1. Just FYI, their lawsuits don’t net them much money. Fred Phelps was a very successful civil rights lawyer. Most of the money comes from the entire family working, the lawsuits are pretty much break-even affairs. Most do not concern monetary judgements aside from “legal fees” which are not as profitable as you think. They get income from the lawsuits, sure…but the opportunity cost is probably high…meaning they could get more money by not suing. The lawsuits are just another way for them to “worship God”…just like their protests are worship…they aren’t trying to convert anyone (they’re calvinists that don’t believe in free will).
