UIC student Jason Connell used the appearance of the hate group to raise money for queer rights groups such as Human Rights Campaign, International AIDS Foundation and Chicago based Jerusalem Open House. Donations were named in honor of the Westboro Baptist Church and community thank you cards will be sent from the non-profits to WBC leader Fred Phelps. Connell called it a, "Lemons to Lemonade" situation.
Matthew Snyder, of Finksburg, Maryland, died from a non combat-related vehicle accident in Al Anbar province, Iraq. He was assigned to Combat Service Support Group-1, 1st Marine Logistics Group, I Marine Expeditionary Force, Twentynine Palms, California. Died on March 3, 2006. Matthew was 20 years old.
The family of Lance Corporal Matthew Snyder, US Marine Corps, has begun this civil lawsuit* against Mr. Phelps and certain members of the so-called Westboro Baptist Church to bring an end to the reign of terror and abuse that they inflicted upon the grieving families of US service members killed in defense of our nation. Using innocent children to deliver their twisted message of hatred and fear, the defendants in this suit have sought to attack the memory of our departed heroes, to strip their loved ones of their dignity, and to use abuse and intimidation as a tool for preventing surviving family members from reaching closure over their loss.
It is the sincere hope of Mr. Al Snyder, Matthews father, that this suit will spark similar legal actions against Mr. Phelps wherever he seeks to inflict harm upon the memory of our heroes and their families. If you feel strongly that such actions should be stopped, please consider a donation to help offset the legal expenses of bringing this suit.

Stark Differences Between Southern Baptists and Fred Phelps (Westboro Baptist Church)
Source: Southern Baptist Conference Web Page
"Phelps derives much of his beliefs from verses like Psalm 5:5, which reads, The boastful shall not stand before Your eyes; You hate all who do iniquity.
"You tell [people] that God loves everybody?" Phelps asked. "You're lying on God."
But two Midwestern Seminary Old Testament professors said that Psalm 5:5 — and other similar verses — must be viewed in context with the rest of Scripture. Christians serve a God of both justice and wrath and of love, grace, and mercy, they said."

DogStar7 here with the update:
Jason raised a little over $200 that day. That's not bad considering that absolutely NO preparation was done other than to empty a pretzel jar (yummm) and put a sticky label on it. Somebody just happened to have a card table in their van (who'da thunk, right?) and it all came together.
The BIG STORY is that this video has inspired DOZENS of collections wherever WBC protests!
Thanks for duplicating the effort, everyone!
