    BALTIMORE - The father of a Marine killed in Iraq and whose funeral was picketed by anti-gay protesters from Kansas was ordered to pay the protesters' appeal costs, his lawyers said Monday.

    The two-page decision supplied by attorneys for Albert Snyder of York, Pa., offered no details on how the court came to its decision.

    On Friday, Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ordered Snyder to pay $16,510 to Fred Phelps. Phelps is the leader of Topeka's Westboro Baptist Church, which conducted protests at Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder's funeral in 2006.

    Attorneys also said Snyder is struggling to come up with fees associated with filing a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court

    My wife is very glad that these people have never protested at a funeral where I was in attendance. She really does not want to pay my bail.

    That's what happens when 'the most conservative' circuit in the country makes rulings.
