I hope the religious right is proud of itself. At least Americans finally get to see what kind of filth the “conservative Christian” gay-haters really are:
This past Saturday morning I found myself in a five-car caravan cutting across the Kansas plains with about 30 religious protesters. In the back of a truck, there were signs that read “Thank God for IED’s” and “Thank God for Dead Soldiers.”
I was with the Phelps family. They’ve launched a disturbing campaign to tarnish the funerals of fallen soldiers.
This is a painful drama playing out at dozens of military funerals across the country. The group is led by Fred Phelps.
He and his family have picketed and heckled military families at more than 100 funerals since June. They say the soldiers are fighting for an army that represents a country that accepts homosexuality.
