More Phelpses get their news from WND than any other source
You know how the polls that are put out by the WorldNetDaily website always bring about uber-homo-hostile results? Well it's no wonder with readers like these:
Yea, yea, yea -- Brazil, Obama, whatever. What we really want to know: Does Westboro really trust WorldNetDaily for accuracy?! Are they fans of the site's message? We're gonna have to investigate.
***NOTE: The full Westboro press release can be found on their website. However, a link from us is something these WorldNet readers will never receive.
**Earlier WorldNet/Westboro post: God Hates **** [G-A-Y]
**UPDATE: In fairness, Shirley Phelps-Roper tells us that WorldNet "only get[s] on [the Phelps family] radar when someone sends [them] something that relates to something they wrote about [Westboro's] activities."
After the Matthew Shepard media frenzy died down years ago, it wasn't hard to figure out this family for what they truly are: a traveling circus and comedy act. Much like the "ex-gays".

I don't know which are more amusing - the antics of the Philthy Phelps Phamily (PPP) or the way the mainstream right-wing religious nuts try to distance themselves from the PPP. I keep thinking the main difference between them is mainly "style." When I think about what each group must want for gay people, it's difficult to imagine much difference.
I think most of the mainstream nuts hold similar beliefs as the PPP. But the mainstreamers seem to feel they are commanded by the Bible to be loving, so they try to put on a love-performance. And, probably more importantly, they are just a little more politically sophisticated in engaging the broader culture. The mainstream nuts are welcomed into the White House whereas the PPP would never be invited there.

I don't think Brazil has anything to fear. They are one of the BRIC (Brazil, Russian, India, China) countries, and their economy has been growing mightily since 2000.
Somehow, I think the country's, and the president's, embrace of GLBT people isn't going to hurt them. In fact, it will only help them.
I cannot believe I am even taking the time to post a comment about the Westboro people. I just lost a good two minutes of my life....
