Now That’s More Like It

Fred Phelps

A UK Border Agency spokesman said: “The home secretary has excluded both Fred Phelps and his daughter from the UK. Both these individuals have engaged in unacceptable behaviour by inciting hatred against a number of communities.”

Phelps and his crazy inbred clan!

Perhaps Phelps is homophobic because one of his own inbreds didn't fall tofar from the family tree?  (pun intended).

didja ever notice that when there's a smiting or a hating to be done, it's always God that gets called in to do the dirty deed?

it sure seems like these crackers focus a lot on that...but seriously, can you really see Jesus smiting someone?

not surprising in this day and age when it seems that modern christianity has very little to do with Jesus's teachings as it does with "who can we find for God to strike down next?"

Zra, you've led me to one of my favorite rants.  The misappropriation of the word "God" and how I think it would serve all of us well if we just struck the use of the word from the English language.  It really has become a meaningless word because it means whatever I want it to mean.  It's a stopgap word that just stands in for our own cosmic pretensions.  

Of course, this will never happen and I know it's odd that a man o' the cloth would be saying this, but that's how I feel.

I'm sure this post will come back someday to bite me in the ass.

God, I love the English. Good for them, keeping that homophobic asswipe and his family out of their country. God Bless the Queen.

Freedom of speech? Freedom of religion?

I'm all for freedom of speech and freedom of religion -- but I also believe in my right to the pursuit of happiness -- which means to me freedom from hate (among other things).

The freedom of speech issue here is pretty clear. Fred Phelps can say whatever he wants about gays and not go to jail. Everyone else has the right to draw attention to him and call him a jerk and also not go to jail.

Let's all take a moment to enjoy how we're not going to jail right now.

Fred Phelps has the right to hate gays( and almost everyone else). We have the right to hate Fred Phelps. In many other countries (the UK for example) this is not the case.

"freedom of speech?  Freedom of religion"

England isn't America.  Don't blather about the US constitution out of contest.

I like Paul and dbrewing's comments.  Sure, I think Phelps opinion sucks but I'm pretty sure he thinks my opinion sucks.  I've come to accept that some people suck(in my opinion) and there is not much I can do about it untill fate swings around and bites them in a$$
