      Funny! Everybody hates the WBC.

      I loved this article! Laughed my ass off. WBC is bringing allies to our side or at least awareness of GLBT discrimination. I look forward to the day when Fred Phelps begins to justify his cults’ message that they will be taken to heaven for their “crusade” after one of his clan is murdered.

      While I would never defend the vile scabs at the WBC, I find the Queerty comment, “Have you ever seen a black person, a Latino, or an Asian in [the WBC's] midst?” a bit strange, since it’s a private church, but especially considering you could say the same thing about many liberal gatherings. Yes, the WBC is an all-white congregation (mostly because they’re all interrelated), but lack of diversity (see: last summer’s all-white Jon Stewart rally in DC) is not a flashing banner declaring, “I’m a racist.” Me, I don’t have a single black, Asian, or Latino friend, and you wanna know why? Because I live in lily-white Vermont, that’s why, where even the most insanely liberal caucuses around here only gain white supporters.

      Before he went bonkers and was disbarred, Phelps was actually the leading civil rights attorney in Kansas.

      Fred Phelps was always crazy and was never “a leading civil rights attorney.”

      That is more of his self-aggrandizing self-mythologizing. Stop perpetuating his lies. Please.

      Welcome to the freakshow- What are Fred Phelps and the WBC afraid of? Rainbows? Unicorns? A flaming pink queer apocalypse? I attempted to address this with a portrait of the good reverend on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/03/fred-phelps-and-westboro-baptist-church.html Drop in and let me know what you think!

      It should be noted that Fred Phelps made his bread allegedly defending African-Americans from discrimination. Thus, though Fred Phelps remains pretty obviously a racist, that he even pretended to defend the non-white people against the depredations of the white people makes him anathema to the KKK.

      Though, I also find it quite disturbing that I find the KKK less reprehensible in this situation.

      I don’ like any of the haters but in this situation as a black gay man I would have to say that Fred Phelps and his group is the lessor of the 2 evils.

      There is no lesser of two evils in this case.

      This reminds me what Henry Kissinger said about the Iran-Iraq war: “The only acceptable outcome is for them both to lose.”
