The Mistress of the Westboro “God Hates Fags” Baptist Church has not been deterred by her run-in with Fox News siren Julie Banderas, and she has taken her fight to the Southern Baptist Convention, where she rips into a pastor who has the patience of Job (and a really long battery in his video camera), telling him how the Convention is a whorehouse and a leper colony that worships the idol of the U.S. flag, where the red represents the rectal blood of fags. Yep.
We love being defended by Southern Baptists perhaps even more than Fox News anchors. Shirley Phelps-Roper is really doing the gay community a huge favor by making centrists out of even the most socially conservative people in the nation. She has raised the bar of bigotry so high that she and her family dwell pretty much alone, and in doing so have changed the dialogue. The biggest coup of all will be when Phelps-Roper makes her inevitable appearance on The O’Reilly Factor and Bill O’Reilly, after being cowed by her formbidable oratory skills (she is a lawyer, after all, albeit a totally crazy one), is forced to say we’re not so bad after all.
Watch the three videos of Shirley Phelps-Roper outside the Southern Baptist Convention after the jump.
