Bigotry in the Name of God

Hell does not exist, but the bigoted, despicable thug Fred Phelps, who protests homosexuality at the funerals of American soldiers and blames the nation’s problems on homosexuality, would richly deserve a place there.

As Mike S. Adams writes (“Fred Phelps Goes Down Under,” January 30, 2008), recently Phelps wrote to the family of Heath Ledger, claiming that Ledger is burning in hell and asking how to disrupt the funeral.

Adams appropriately condemns Phelps. However, he (apparently) jokes that Phelps is also gay and that is why he is so angry; the truth is much uglier. For Adams to mock homosexuals in the same article that he condemns Phelps is tasteless, to put it mildly.
