The Supreme Court affirmed their right to harass families at funerals, especially miltary familes, so let’s see how many brave gay activists show up to counter Phelps and his inbred clan.
Elizabeth Taylor won’t be resting in peace, if the Westboro Baptist Church has anything to say about it.
The fiercely anti-gay WBC — which has generated controversy by protesting at funerals of service members — announced its intentions to picket Taylor’s memorial service on Wednesday.
While the group didn’t say exactly why they planned to disrupt the funeral of the actress, who passed away at 79 on Wednesday, it’s a safe bet that Taylor’s activism for AIDS patients has something to do with it. Margie Phelps, daughter of WBC leader Fred Phelps, tweeted about the planned picket on Wednesday, referring to Taylor as a “serial-adulterous fag hag.”
Taylor became a prominent AIDS activist in her later years, co-founding the American Foundation for AIDS Research.
Here’s an interesting thing, Fred Phelps, the patriarch of the Westboro Baptist Church is a DEMOCRAT.
Fred Waldron Phelps, Sr. (born November 13, 1929) is an American pastor heading the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), an independent Baptist church based in Topeka, Kansas. Phelps is a disbarred lawyer, founder of the Phelps Chartered law firm, a past civil rights activist in Kansas, and a Democrat who has five times been a candidate for political office in Kansas Democratic Party primaries.
I want to see the gay community get just as outraged as we are over Phelps’ malfeasance at military funerals.
