At Matthew’s funeral the Westboro cult showed up and harassed the family with their hateful signs and chanting. Matthew’s father Albert later took the cult to court for their represhensible actions. He originally won his case but a judge later overturned it. In an outlandish decision this week the court ordered Albert Snyder to pay the Westboro cult’s legal costs.
Today Albert Snyder told Jamie Allman on 97.1 FM that the Westboro cult is tring to get $90,000 from his family.
