The U.S. Supreme Court ruled against Fred Phelps this week. The antigay pastor had attempted to erect a statue in a government plaza in Kansas condemning homosexuality and slain student Matthew Shepard.

Phelps' monument read, "Matthew Shepard Entered Hell October 12, 1998, in Defiance of God's Warning 'thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind; it is abomination.' Leviticus 18:22."

The Supreme Court ruled unanimously that government parks receiving monument donations are not required to accept every offer.

Last month Phelps and his daughter Shirley Roper-Phelps were prevented from entering the UnitedK ingdom to protest a production of The Laramie Project because of their extremist behavior.
