Trance 23 -
There are some people out there that will hate you no matter what.
You can talk all you want until you are blue in the face and drop from exhaustion, but they won't even listen to you.
In our society we have decided that there are two ways of punishing people. One of those ways is through tortious action. The tortfeasor can be held liable for their actions.
Intentional torts are any intentional acts that are reasonably foreseeable to cause harm to an individual, and that do so. Intentional torts have several subcategories, including torts against the person, including assault, battery, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, etc.
Regardless of the willingness or the ability of the feasor to change or atone for their actions, through Tort law they can be held liable for the pain they deliberately inflict on others.
I still say good for the father, its about damned time someone held Phelps and his brats liable for their intentional infliction of suffering.
I hope the courts seize every assett the church has.
All the families assetts are held by the church corporation.
Don't feel too bad for the innocent Phelps kids - three of them are attorneys who use the law as a weapon to punish those they disagree with.
This is simply good karma - payback can be a bitch.
