Mepham update: enter fred phelps
Mr. Phelps, for all of his blustering about God and the Bible and Jesus, would not know a true relgious value if it bit him in his ass.
If Phelps was one open to discussion, I would simply tell him that what went on at the football camp was not about sex or homosexuality; it was about power. That's something Phelps himself should be mighty familiar with.
However, because the Reverend is not a man open to a discussion on the merits, the best I can do is attend the hatefest, camera in tow, and display Phelps for what he is: a hateful, deceitful, evil, shameful excuse for a human being.
If Phelps had a shred of human decency - which it is quite obvious by now that he doesn't - he would realize that this is definitely not what the victims need right now. As a man of the cloth (so he says), he should be offering counseling to the victims instead of making this into a media event focused on himself.
I will not provide a link to Phelps's website here. I think you know by now where to find it if you want to see the hate firsthand.
I will be at Mepham High School on the morning of October 27 at 7am. I would very much like to have audience with Phelps. If anyone can help me come up with a constructive way of getting his attention and maybe a few words with him, let me know.
