Remember Fred Phelps, the guy who "protests" funerals of AIDS patients and gay-bashing victims by herding his demented asshole family into a bus emblazoned "God Hates Fags" and whatall? Well, his daughter Shirley proves that the nut doesn't fall far from the tree. She's crusading to stop people from saying nice posthumous things about Mr. Rogers because...well, I'll let her tell you:
"You don't get to pretend to decide what form God takes," Phelps-Roper said. "He's the God who could have stopped the shuttle crash, the nightclub fire, but instead he sent those things. This country has forgotten God and effectively flipped him off, and Fred Rogers is in part responsible."
So, there you have it.

Yeah. That's some fun children's programming. I suppose the cartoon dog from Blues Clues is similarly culpable for the downfall of society.
Why do these people get publicity? Gah.

Fred Rogers flips off God, God gets cross and smites us. This explains everything - poverty, abuse, cancer, it's all because of Fred Rogers' refusal to condemn homosexuality. Life makes so much more sense now.

Phelps and his kin are easy to whip one's self into a froth over. here has a long article about the Phelps clan. after reading it I came to the conclusion he is infact, a drug addled (brain damaged) monster and his family (sans the two that escaped) are sad, deeply emotionally (and physically) damaged human beings.
I can't be angry with them anymore. the whole lot of them are sick, scared people.
I have talked to Fred twice in seattle. Both times I told him I would pray for Jesus's love to enter his heart, heal him and his family. the man is sick, and he is a fundie. screaming at him feeds his sickness. telling him you are going to pray for him throws him off his game.
I did pray for him. the fat lot good it did.

Thanks for that link, she. I'd heard some of that abuse stuff a few years ago from the kids that escaped, but it's still thoroughly chilling. They're all deeply fucked up.

ok, that all said.
I think she needs to be bitch slapped for fucking with Mr. Rogers now that he isn't around to address her in his calm understanding voice. stupid evil bint.

You don't mess with Mr. Rogers, bee-yatch. I can't think of the last time the death of any public figure effected me and my friends as much as that of our favorite "neighbor," and for this sick person to say that just because he never spoke out against homosexuality, he is worthy of this treatment, is disgusting.
On a personal note, my boyfriend and I have a framed photo collage from one of the local (now-defunct) fag-rags that featured our large faces in the middle, and a small photo of Fred Phelps between us, holding a sign that says "Save the Gerbils." We cherish it.
