I am wondering what you guys think about this. I can imagine what you guys might think, but I am wondering if this is as clear cut as I think it is.

My question for Shirley Phelps (though I've no doubt she wouldn't answer honestly would be, "How old were you when Fred first began sexually molesting you?"

Two of the daughters did leave the church, the one just published a book

I worry that closeted and isolated queer or questioning individuals (especially youths) see this sort of thing without context -- without realizing that the WBC is pretty widely ridiculed and despised

That was a flash by thought for me too, Kris.  But then I remembered.  This generation of 20 years old and under, have never known life without the internet.  If they are closeted or isolated, they only have to reach across the ether.  The more people we can get connected, the faster our mental evolution can happen.

LOL! They should have put pro-gay propaganda all over their website.

You can certainly see how much Shirley loves all the attention she is getting with wild eyes and devious, tooth-bearing smile.

I'll say it again, I can't help wondering how old she was when she was sexually molested, possibly by Fred himself - who knows how many of those 11 children are his? Why is her last name still Phelps? As much as I detest Shirley Phelps, I have to remember that she, too, is a victim of the Stockholm Syndrome.

Child abuse, at best.

Sweet mother of Asimov...those first 30 seconds I thought it was actually a parody or something, it was just so off the wall. Of course I've heard about these people, but seeing that mother so gleeful in her hate gives me chills.

Incidentally, as far as "what you guys think"...you'd get pretty much the same answers if you posted this on a Christian board, I'm thinkin..

I have no doubt. The media makes it seem like EVERY Christian is batshit nutts like this. They are not. It would be good to put some doubt in their faith, because all Fred Phelps is trying to do is live like the Bible tells him. He is missing a few things. I am currently working on a list of all things in the Bible that show God's hate, bigotry, and merciless slaughter.

Does THIS help any?

Not EVERYbody in Kansas is batshit crazy!
