Dead Marine's Father is refusing to pay the Westboro Baptist Church Appeal Fee. Instead Fox News Bill O'Reilly will pay the fee.
A Marine’s Father early in the day today stated he was refusing to pay the Court Ordered “appeal fees” to the Westboro Baptist Church.
The Westboro Protestor Group shouted vile protests- ” Anti Gay and Anti America Slogans” at his son’s “Fallen Hero” Funeral. In the latest court action the Father was told to pay the $16,000 appeal fees to Westboro Baptist. The free speech and funeral picketing case will be later heard by the United States Supreme Court.
Later in the day in a show of conservative support Bill O Reilly of Fox News(O’Reilly Factor) stated he would pay the $16,000 dollar appeal fee to the Fred Phelps group.
Snippets from Fox News:
Albert Snyder, of York, Pa., told Fox News he does not intend to pay $16,510 to Fred Phelps, the leader of Kansas’ Westboro Baptist Church, which held protests at Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder’s funeral in 2006.
“I don’t think I’m going to be writing a check until I hear from the Supreme Court,” Snyder told Fox News on Tuesday. “I’m not about to pay them anything.”

Alex Calvert, whose Calvert Funeral Homes LLC is the lead name in the Six Funeral Director Class Act Class Action Lawsuit against the Illinois Funeral Directors Association recently spoke to the press.
His comments were not about the IFDA Preneed Trust Scandal. Instead he commented on Human Remains (Ashes) left in Funeral Homes.
Leader in IFDA Lawsuit-talks to the press
The key,” says Alex Calvert, director of Calvert & Metzler Funeral Home in Bloomington, and one of more than 35 Calvert homes across Illinois, “is to have a plan with the family (for dispensation of the ashes) and to maintain a communication. We have to make sure people have a plan of what they want to do and that usually works. I’m not saying we’ve not had loved ones stay here for months, but eventually it’s resolved.”
Maybe Mr Calvert (and other Funeral Directors In Illinois) should have had a plan with the IFDA (to keep track of the folks preneed Funds) and maintained communication so over 100 million dollars would not have been lost and mismanaged.
