At it again…

Friend of the Oregon Citizens Alliance and frequent meddler in Oregon’s battles for Gay and Lesbian rights, Fred Phelps and his merry band of bigoted hatemongers are flying to Australia to picket the funeral of actor Heath Ledger. Why? Because despite his record of staunch heterosexuality, and the fact that he has a daughter by his former Fiance, he was in Brokeback Mountain. You know, the one about the gay cowboys? Yeah, that seems productive.

Click here to see the press release, although I must caution you it’s a vile, hate filled piece of garbage. Now that I am thoroughly sick to my stomach, I’m off to barf a rainbow.

    If only the State Dept. could revoke their passports, or refuse them if they don’t already one. Let’s hope Australia won’t let them in.

    I’m no fan of the OCA, but to compare them to raving lunatics like Fred Phelps and the gang at Westboro Baptist Church is just hyperbole. They share OCA’s opposition to homosexuals, but you could just as easily compare them to the extreme left’s opposition to the war in Iraq and ‘hate America’ attitudes.

    Phelps is from my hometown and began his public hate crusade locally when I was in high school. His evil is unimaginable – but I have also personally seen a lot of love and compassion come put between people who would normally see eye to eye because he went to far even for them.

    When he dies he will burn in a special corner of hell.

    “The extreme left’s opposition to the Iraq war.”

    What is this, 2003? I’m pretty sure just about everybody in the US opposes the war at this point.

    Actually, I can’t quite fathom how anyone could equate homophobia with political dissent. The former is an expression of hatred against fellow human beings for personal choices made in their own private lives; the latter is a necessary component of public discourse and one of the fundamental components of patriotism upon which this nation was founded.

    I agree wholeheartedly with “horrified”, except for the part about Homosexuality being a choice. I know it probably wasn’t meant to be expressed like that but as a gay man myself, trust me, it’s not a choice. :)
