Timothy Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church, the masterminds behind “God Hates Fags” and “God Hates Lady Gaga” and “Thank God for Dead Soldiers”—and son of WBC founder Fred Phelps—took time out of his picketing routine (currently, he’s en route to Joe Paterno’s funeral) to talk to the Huffington Post‘s Reggie Cameron about politics and gay sex.
Here are some highlights:
On political candidates:
These people claim to be Christian, New Gingrich and Mitt Romney and some of them others. They aren’t pure followers of Jesus Christ. I wouldn’t trust [any] of them with a handful of change to go get me some bubble gum. There’s nothing of any value in [any] of those human beings. I would rather have Obama… [whom the Westboro Church has referred to as the Anti-Christ].
On gay marriage:
In the days of Noah they were accepting and giving of marriage. It was the acceptance of homosexual marriage that triggered the Flood. They didn’t use that term, but that is the concept. Men marrying men. Women marrying women. Humans marrying animals. How far do you think we are from that in this generation?
I don’t care if you’re kissing or having anal sex or any other thing you do. It’s what’s in your heart that matters.
When asked then whether it was okay for him to commit sodomy with his wife but not for men to do the same with other men, Phelps responded, “rhetorically, yes.”
