Wanted: Gay Man with AIDS to Rape Fred Phelps

Ugh. Fred Phelps, the gay-bashing pastor of God Hates Fags fame, continues to get himself in the news by protesting at the funerals of our country's fallen soldiers.

Phelps believes the deaths of U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and the 2001 terrorist attacks are an angry God's punishment for the country's tolerance of homosexuality. "This nation has ticked off the Almighty, and it's too late to repent," he says.

[...]

His voice rises, though, when he explains why he feels no empathy for mourners at military funerals. "What I'm sorry about," he says, "is that they raised their children for the devil in hell. ... I'm saying to those people, 'If your boy, your dead soldier son, could come back to earth and talk to you, what he would tell you is, listen to Phelps.' "

[...]

Phelps and his followers have been picketing for 16 years at schools, churches and funerals for people who died of AIDS. They were at the 1998 funeral of Matthew Shepard, a gay student who was murdered in Wyoming. They were at a memorial service for men who died in a West Virginia mine accident in January.

Their first protest at a military funeral was in June 2005. So far, there have been 162 such protests.

USA Today calls him a "former civil rights attorney". I call him a "former human being". I really hate this guy. I'm practically licking whipcream off of Donna Layne Robert's hairy ass compared to my dislike for this guy. With that said, state and federal laws limiting his ability to protest funerals are clearly unconstitutional; and I hope he wins his lawsuits. I also hope that the media eventually catches him with a dick in his mouth, because you know he is like soooooo gay. Why else would he spend so much time protesting homosexuality?
