Wow. I knew that the Rev. Fred Phelps was a complete fucktard, but I had no idea that he and his minions were this insane.

I mean, sure, they picketed the funeral of Matthew Shepard, a young gay man beaten to death just for being gay. Phelps and his supporters showed up at the funeral with signs reading "God Hates Fags", of course, because Phelps hates homosexuals. He even organized picketing at the funeral of Mr. Rogers. MR. ROGERS, PEOPLE. What type of moron would think Mr. Rogers deserved to burn in hell? Well, apparently, Fred Phelps.

He and his crew are now going to the funerals of soldiers killed in Iraq with signs that read, "Thank God for IEDs". (IEDs are the explosive devices used by insurgents to blow up military convoys.) Phelps says that America has mocked God by accepting homosexuality, so God is now punishing the soldiers by killing them via terrorists. According to Wikipedia, in 1997, Phelps wrote Sadddam Hussein a letter praising his regime, and received special permission from the Iraqi government to send a group of his children to Baghdad to protest against the American government. A classy guy, no?

I find it very disturbing that the 101st Fighting Keyboarders and College Republicans seem to think that anyone who criticizes the war or the President hates America, but they don't seem to have a problem with Phelps and his ilk.
