Albert Snyder, 55, talks about his son, Matthew, a Marine who was killed in Iraq, and about the upcoming Supreme Court case that will focus on a lawsuit he filed against Rev. Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church for protesting his son's funeral Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2010, in York, Pa. The court is set to decide whether members of a fundamentalist church in Kansas who picketed Matthew's funeral with signs bearing anti-gay and anti-Catholic invective have a constitutional right to say what they want.
