Speaking Truth To Morons 

The 'Reverend' Fred "God Hates Fags" Phelps (I'd vote for Hillary Clinton before I'd link to that dirtbag) is, famously, a very sick puppy. Here's a man who stays up late every night thinking of ways to give Christianity, America and conservatism a bad name.

Lately he's been picketing soldiers' funerals, showing up with his zombie followers to accuse the dead heroes of being homosexual and, in general, making an ungodly ass of himself. His rationale is thus:

Thank God for IEDs killing American soldiers in strange
lands every day.WBC rejoices every time the Lord God
in His vengeance kills or maims an American soldier
with an Improvised Explosive Device (IED).

To most effectively cause America to know her
abominations (Ez. 16:2), WBC will picket the funerals of
these Godless, fag army American soldiers when their
pieces return home. WBC will also picket their landing
spot, in Dover, Delaware early and often.

According to Objective Justice, a group legal blog, two soldiers' wives have tried to turn Phelps' primitive obsession into a postive.
To counter-act these sick idiots, a fundraiser event has
been put together
in a format that we're all familiar with
from grade-school fundraising programs. You may
pledge any amount that you want for every minute the
protesters are at the funeral. In this way the Phelps
Gang is helping to provide money for the family the are

Currently, they are taking pledges for Sgt. Christopher
Taylor. To pledge, just send an e-mail to Yoannon at
sgt.taylorfund@hotmail.com or you can reach her at
(706)366-0945. E-mail your name, phone number,
what you want to pledge, and whether you want it to
go to the "wife and kids" account or the "kids" account.
Objective Justice will also send $1 to the fund for every blog that links to their post.

UPDATE: Mary, of Exit Zero, comments that Phelps is a life-long Democrat and one-time party operative. That was news to me and I feel like the Jewish woman who, when a crime is committed by Zimmerman, prays he's German. I also wonder why I assumed he was, if anything, a Republican. Am I a self-hating Republican? More likely I've just absorbed too much commentary on him that lumped him in with the standard leftists' betes noir. But, really, when you get that far out on the fringes the left and right begin to meld.
