phelps comes to town
I decided to drive past Mepham High School anyhow, just to see what was going on. It was hard getting near the circus at all, but I did manage to see a few of Phelps's henchmen holding up their disgusting signs. One sign said "God Bless 9/11." Unfortunately, I forgot to put a disc in my camera before I left the house. I'm sure I'll be able to find some on the local news sites later.
So I listened to Curtis and Kuby on my way to work and they were doing a telephone interview with a son of Phelps. Kuby asked him about the 9/11 sign and how that pertains to Mepham. Phelps replied that 9/11 was God's way of telling us that homosexuality is abhorent, in so many words.
He was asked how he could equate homosexuality with a hazing incident. Phelps explained that parents and teachers let the children know at an early age that being gay is ok, so of course, these kids went and sodomized someone.
What Phelps and his family and followers fail to realize is that this had nothing to do with homosexuality at all. As I've stated before, it was about power and humiliation. It's too bad that Phelps believes that the reason for all the bad things in the world is the proliferation and sinfulness of being gay. The real reason the world is going to hell in a handbasket is because of people like him who preach hate and intolerance and pass that hate on from generation to generation.
If anyone is spreading evil around the world, it's Phelps.
