Schmuck of the Month!
Fred Phelps, founder and head of the Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas
and webmaster for www.godhatesfags.com,
is shown here spreading his infamous messages of blind hatred and intolerance
at the funeral of Matthew Sheperd. Phelps and his church have been
very active in recent days, inseminating the nation's media with the Word
of God, or more precisely, their own incredibly narrow and stringent interpretation
of it. The most interesting thing about his ultra-reactionary, totally
intolerant views on homosexuality is that they're so extreme and shocking
to the general public that they do, in my opinion, far more good than harm
for gay rights, as extremism usually creates a backlash of sympathy for
those who are being discriminated against. Either the Reverend Phelps
is secretly working for the gay rights movement and is doing this on purpose,
or he's just a small, hateful little man who's got a diseased little mind.
I'm voting for the latter! Either way, Mr. Phelps more than earns
the distinguished title of Chaensaw's Schmuck of the Month!
