Defamation case against Westboro Baptist Church goes to trial in October

By Diane Silver

Wow. A federal judge in Baltimore has rejected a second attempt by the Westboro Baptist Church to derail a defamation lawsuit. This means the case against the funeral picketing of Fred Phelps' church will likely go to trial in October.

This setback comes immediately after the new public face of the church, Shirley Phelps-Roper, was thrown in jail.

After all these years, have we finally found a way to legally fight Fred and Family?

Stay tuned.
