The church behind the hate-protest of a Marine’s funeral last year has been told to pay $10.9 Million.
Last year they caused outrage when they attended the funeral of Matthew Snyder with signs reading “Thank God for dead soldiers” and “You’re going to hell”.
On Wednesday, the jury ordered the church and three of its leaders to pay $2.9m in compensatory damages, and an additional $8m for invasion of privacy and for causing emotional distress.
This is the group behind the “God Hates Fags” campaign, as well.
This is my favorite part:
The church cited its constitutional right to free speech in its defence.
You can say whatever you want, but you can be held responsible for the consequences of what you say. Like, for example, if you bring a hate-parade to a Marine’s funeral and scar his family for life.
It makes me happy that the Church of FSM is tolerant and rejects action of hate.
