    Neither Christian Nor Cool

    Fred Phelps.  Loathsome.
    Fred Phelps and friends plan to protest the Amish murder victims' funerals. Dumbass tag is the strongest we have, sadly
    Headline from Fark.  Original article in CNS , which is at present, farked.
    The Westboro Baptist Church -- described as a hate group by the Anti-Defamation League -- has made a name for itself by picketing the funerals of U.S. troops killed in Iraq. The troops are dying as punishment for America's tolerance of homosexuality, the group says.

    The Westboro group says the Amish school girls were "killed by a madman in punishment for Gov. Ed Rendell's blasphemous sins against Westboro Baptist Church.

    Fred Phelps.
    If my kung-fu is strong, this is the last post you'll get from me, Phelps.
    Hopefully those won't blow up the website.
    Update!  Apparently, Phelps and the clan are NOT going to show up.  The cost, however, is high.

    The controversial anti-homosexual Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan., has canceled its plans to stage a protest at the funerals of the five Amish girls executed in their Pennsylvania school, a church official said Wednesday.

    Shirley Phelps-Roper, the daughter of church's pastor, told the group canceled the protests in exchange for an hour of radio time Thursday on syndicated talk-show host Mike Gallagher's radio program.

    Ah, that's an idea.  Give them a bully pulpit.

    What does Phelps have against ED Rendall? I don't know much about ER other than he invested in improving education and making prespcription drugs more affordable for seniors. Is that a problem? Maybe it's becuase ER declared 10/8-10/14 Fire Prevention week?
