Radio talk show host Mike Gallagher is going to give his whole four hour radio show to one of the wackos from the Westboro Baptist church so that they, led by the "Reverend" Fred Phelps, will not protest at any of the memorial or funerals of those killed last week in the massacre at Virginia Tech university.
So, who is the "Reverend" Fred Phelps? He is a bitter, hateful man who is an ordained minister that his whole ministry is saying how awful homosexuals are and no matter what they are going to go to hell, even if they change their ways.
I do not want to go into all the bizarre theology, but the Westboro Baptist church is in Topeka, Kansas and basically is members and extended members of the Phelps family. Some evangelization.
These people have protested at the funerals of soldiers killed in Iraq. Oh, they are not against the war like the left. They are protesting because they feel, I kid you not, that they deserved to die because they are fighting a war and justifying the "homosexual agenda." I would not know where to start and I will not.
The same essential reason is the rationale for protesting those killed at Virginia Tech. I mean, if they were not gay or lesbian, they must support that lifestyle by attending college.
So, Mr. Gallagher offered his whole show to Shirley Phelps-Roper, one of the "Reverend" Phelps daughters. That show was done today. In return, they will not protest at any of the memorials or funerals of the Virginia Tech victims.
Mr. Gallagher also gave two hours after the Amish school massacre as these "Christians" were going to protest at those victims funerals.
Now, many would say that he is just giving them a free platform to spew their hateful message. Maybe so, but what he is doing his protecting those attending the services so already grieving people do not have to confront these "Christians."
It is a tough call, but I think the right one. Most, and I mean most people in the United States have already marginalized this group and their "church." The only ones that have not is the DDBMSM who like to put these people on as the mainstream of thought on homosexuality and or issues about homosexuality. They are way off the mark. Many Christians that have strong views against homosexual behavior believe they are redeemable and in fact can change and those Christians actively try to help those that want to change. They, unlike the Phelps crowd, do not condemn them.
No matter where anyone stands on the issue of homosexuality, we can agree that the Fred Phelps crowd are nothing but hatemongers, and as I condemn those on the left like the "Reverends" Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, I will be in the front of the line to condemn "Reverend" Fred Phelps.
Mike Gallagher has done something courageous because I could not stand five minutes with any of these people. All I can say again is thank you Mike.
