Commentary: Gay Bashing Fundamentalists Have No respect for the Living or The Dead

Some conservatives such as right wing Texas motor mouth and Fox News co-host John Gibson have made jokes about Heath Ledger’s death. Boy does his show need writers, and does he ever need a soul.

Anyway homophobe and so-called “Christian” fundamentalist “Reverend”Fred Phelps and the small but hate filled cadre of followers he calls a “church”, state they will protest at memorials in the U.S for Ledger, saying he is burning in hell for playing a gay cowboy in the movie Brokeback Mountain. If you don’t know Phelps earlier work, they are the ones who protest at the funerals of Iraq War veterans, saying they deserve to die for America’s Tolerance of Homosexuality.

They give religion a bad name, just as many white supremacist distorted Christianity to spout their racist pro-segregation vitriol.

Anyway here is a segment from “The West Wing” that shows how you deal with hate spouting and gay bashing religious fundamentalists.
