    The lawsuits they file on the (now rarer) occasions anybody tries to  block their protests have never been the primary source of financial support, anyway. Their law practice does very well apparently, with a healthy quantity of customers; and members who are not employed at the law firm do give substantially to the church from their own professional pay checks.

    "They have a very well-respected law firm in Topeka," Sherman says. "People in town said, 'Well, we don't like them, but if we want to win a case, we'll go to them.' "

    Church spokeswoman Phelps-Roper says their booming employment and family law practice pays the bills for their travels across the country, when they shout their anti-gay message. They travel in vans to keep down the costs, which she says can add up to $200,000 a year.
