Why won't he just die?

The indefatigable gay-hating Rev. Fred Phelps of Topeka, Kan., announced in October that he would take advantage of the Casper, Wyo., City Council's earlier decision to allow a religious monument (the Ten Commandments) in a city park by erecting his own religious monument: a statue celebrating the 1998 fatal gay bashing (and descent into hell) of Casper's Matthew Shepard. (A U.S. Court of Appeals had ruled that a city cannot discriminate among religious messages.) The City Council subsequently decided that its Ten Commandments monument was a bad idea and voted to remove it and ban all religious messages from the park. [Casper Star-Tribune, 10-6-03]

That is such a horrific statement to make. That's like erecting a statue ofa bomb or an exploding plane to show your disgust for the events of 9-11. It's just not right, and does he actually believe that this so-called statue will just make gay people go, "Oh, gee, now I see the light! I don't want to be gay anymore! Thanks!"

What a fucktard.

I'd heard about that, glad they made the right decision there.

What some people consider to be logical thinking amazes me sometimes.
