Church says Judge's Decision Doesn't Mean Anything

A court decision in Maryland has changed some paperwork for the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka.

A federal judge in Baltimore ordered the group to post the church building and nearly $500,000 in cash and property for a bond.

The church is currently appealing a $5 million judgment stemming from its protest at a Marine's funeral.

Church member Shirley Phelps-Roper says the decision is merely paperwork and won't change anything about the way the church operates. She says it's merely a lein on the property while the appeal works its way through the courts. The only problems would arise, she says, is the church wanted to sell the property.
