Remembering what really happened to Fred Phelps' church when it was "bombed"

By Diane Silver

Because Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church keep claiming that someone bombed their church, it's time to revisit the details of what exactly did happen in 1995.

The Emporia Gazette did just that and reminds us:
On Aug. 20, 1995, an explosive device of some sort went off in the driveway of a house occupied by one of Phelps’ daughters. No one was injured and property damage was small. A year later, a man was sentenced to 16 days in jail for the blast.
There's more on this at Kansas Voice.
