Seriously, Fred Phelps, WTF?

From On Top Magazine:

The Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that anti-gay pastor Fred Phelps does not have the First Amendment right to have his monument against Matthew Shepard – and more precisely against being gay – displayed on government property, reports the Casper Star-Tribune.... Phelp's monument stated: “Matthew Shepard Entered Hell October 12, 1998, in Defiance of God's Warning 'thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind; it is abomination.' Leviticus 18:22.”

Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh. This guy is like 10,000,000 Santorums. WHAT IS THE FUCKING POINT?!?!?! Why, Fred Phelps, why do you do these things? Why do you present them as though they are the Christian thing to do? WHY?!

Jesus Christ told us not to judge. He said that. A few times, as I've pointed out on several of my previous posts. Why on Earth did you decide that Leviticus is more important to Christianity than the message of Christ? And why, out of all of Leviticus, do you pick homosexuality as the single worst thing ever? WHY?

I don't get it. I do not understand this man. I do not understand his position. I do not understand how he can read the Bible and think "God hates fags" is not only in there, but is the central message.

Anyway, good thing the Supreme Court has some sense. And I won't even bother asking Phelps WTF Jesus would do, because he clearly doesn't know.

Because he's afraid of gay people. Seriously. He just has an aversion to people who are gay, much like racists have aversions to people who appear differently than them. He is literally homophobic, in the same way some people are arachnophobic or whatever. And he seems to have found a convenient way to justify that fear and hatred that lots of other people seem to agree on. It's very unfortunate, but honestly, all we can really do is wait for that family to all die off.

...or because he's a closet-case himself and his mum doesn't like it

Have you ever heard of Jack Chick? His cartoon strip on Homosexuality is what came to mind when I read this post...

*shakes head*

I am with you on this one.
