Bill O’Reilly to Pay Court Costs of Fallen Marine’s Father

Newsmax reports FNC’s Bill O’Reilly will pay the legal fees for the father of a fallen U.S. Marine who sued members of the Westboro Baptist Church who picketed his son’s funeral.

The church garners attention for its views by protesting high-profile funerals. On March 3, 2006, Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew A. Snyder died in a non-combat related vehicle accident in Al Anbar province in Iraq.

During the wake that was held after his son’s funeral, family members turned on the television to view coverage of the massive procession involving over 1,500 persons. They saw the church members waving signs and protesting the funeral.

Last night on his show, O’Reilly said the mounting legal fees, are “an outrage.”

“I will pay Mr. Snyder’s obligation,” said O’Reilly. “I am not going to let this injustice stand.”
