   Leaders of the ultra-conservative Westboro Baptist Church have  repeatedly skirted the law by maintaining a legal distance while  picketing military funerals. This weekend, a New York artist attempted  to beat the church at its own game by creating a satirical painting of  Pastor Fred Phelps Sr. across the street from the organization’s  headquarters in Kansas.
   Scott LoBaido traveled to the church’s compound in Topeka, where he  parked his truck across the street and painted a portrait depicting  Phelps in a carnal embrace with the devil. The painting also lampoons  Phelps’ daughter, Shirley Phelps-Roper. (The story was first reported in  the Topeka Capital-Journal.)
   A native of Staten Island, LoBaido said in a phone interview Monday that he wanted to use the church’s own  tactics against it by maintaining a legal distance from the property.  “I’m trying to alert the creative masses to use their 1st Amendment  rights,” he said.
