An anti-gay Kansas church is fighting a Missouri law. Kansas preacher Fred Phelps will challenge the state law banning protest at military funerals. He says the law violates his freedom of speech. The American Civil Liberties Union filed the federal lawsuit on behalf of Topeka`s Westboro Baptist Church. Phelps and his followers say god is allowing soldiers to be killed because the United States tolerates homosexuals. State lawmakers passed the legislation after the church protested at the funeral of a St. Joseph soldier last August.
