Have your say! "Free Speech" or Muslim bashing? Do you support Iraq troop withdrawal? Iran invasion?

    Mystery of why GIs killed in Iraq SOLVED!

    Why are soldiers getting killed in Iraq? It turns out it's that goddam God. It seems God has been expressing his homophobic rage by doing in soldiers in Iraq. From AP via Yahoo: Church: God Punishing GIs Over Gays

    SMYRNA, Tenn. - Members of a church say God is punishing American soldiers for defending a country that harbors gays, and they brought their anti-gay message to the funerals Saturday of two Tennessee soldiers killed in Iraq.


    The Rev. Fred Phelps, founder of Westboro Baptist in Kansas, contends that American soldiers are being killed in Iraq as vengeance from God for protecting a country that harbors gays. The church, which is not affiliated with a larger denomination, is made up mostly of Phelps' children, grandchildren and in-laws.

    The church members carried signs and shouted things such as "God hates fags" and "God hates you."

    About 10 church members protested near Smyrna United Methodist Church and nearly 20 stood outside the National Guard Armory in Ashland City. Members have demonstrated at other soldier funerals across the nation.

    Ok, using the funeral of others to express your mental illness is too much. How do these twits get created? Apparently it's taught within the Phelps family.

    Phelps gives the world a false picture of Kansas. I live in Kansas, I have for a long long time. Phelps is like pestilence........you know it needs to be stomped out, but you fear you'll get something if you get that close. He has a large family and get this.
    All of his older daughters went to law school and passed the bar, only to be disbarred, everyone of them.
    He ran for office in Topeka as a Democratic Candidate.
    What amazes me is that people pay his way to hate. Flying his family and himself around the United States to spread hatred, has to cost a bundle.
    He travels more than a virus, and is about as popular when he shows up.

    Web loafer, we hear at A Logical Voice have been accused of America hating, UK hating, Japan hating and hating just about any other place where we have the gall to dare to criticise the policies of a nation's government. (That is, oddly enough, unless it is an official enemy of the U.S. or UK; then criticism seems to be ok with our accusers.) However, we do not judge the whole of anyplace by its parts. Don't worry, our image of Kansas has not been tainted by one family with a history of deep-seated mental illness.

    Thanks for your post, though. It was very informative.

    Thanks for the comments web loafer, don't worry, none of us here would view some extremist fundamentalist like Phelps as being in any way representative of the whole of Kansas.
