Its Bad When The Klan Denounces YOU!

Taken from the article linked below:

Essentially, Phelps and his followers see all tragedies involving loss of life – war, natural disasters, mass shootings – as God’s judgment on a world that “enables” homosexuality. Using this bizarre logic, they have protested at Lady Gaga concerts, schools, the Oscars, and the funerals of Navy SEALS, miners, hurricane victims and Elizabeth Taylor – “fag enablers” one and all, they claim. The church has only about 40 members, yet Westboro is world famous. Several US states are introducing laws aimed at banning their protests; even the KKK has denounced them.

    Lady Gaga concerts are tragedies involving loss of life?

    Certainly qualifies as a “natural disaster”.

    As to the states banning their protests — that’s exactly what Phelps and the Westboro “Baptist” Church want. Then the smarmy, slithering lawyers of the ACLU get to sue the state and local governments and share the damages. The Westboro “Baptist” Church is indirectly funded by your taxpayer dollars.

    Doubtful. There is little money in such litigation, and the payoffs are long in coming. There is surely not enough in such litigation to provide ongoing livelihood to a large extended-family church and to fund their travel expenses.

    The article does not mention that Fred Phelps was a fundraiser for Al Gore, and several times a candidate for public office—always on the Democratic ticket. And it does not touch on the never-disclosed sources of PhelpsCo.’s funding.

    It is interesting to consider that the Branch Davidians, who were bothering nobody but themselves, were immolated by the then-Democrat-held federal government, which started to take interest in them in part because of allegations of child abuse. Yet there seems to be no interest in looking into issues of “child abuse” where PhelpsCo. is concerned, despite apparent documentation that such activity exists.

    PhelpsCo. serves an important political purpose; the Left can always point to it to “show” the supposed intolerance of “the religious Right.” Never mind that practically every other religious group in the country has denounced PhelpsCo.’s behavior. If you talk to a “liberal,” and particularly to a “liberal” who is interested in gay-rights issues, you will find that virtually every story of “religious intolerance” that they cite will trace back to PhelpsCo. Supporting 40 people and paying them to travel and act out is a good investment when it guarantees you tens if not hundreds of thousands of on-the-plantation votes nationwide.
