'Pompous, pretentious, self-righteous bitch queen'

by Jeremy Hooper

Shirleyphelpsroper-4

You can accuse Westboro Baptist's Shirley Phelps-Roper of being lots of things. Anglophile is not one of them:

Sheesh -- someone has a (fish and) chip on her shoulder!

Your thoughts

The "Kindest Regards" at the end elevates the whole thing from hateful diatribe to glorious work of art.

Matt: From personal experience, I can tell you that Shirley is always one of the most respectful penpals you can hope for. She will address your thoughts in length, and follow proper protocol. And yes, the whole effect comes across as some sort of highly skilled performance art.

Did she really think she would be allowed into our country?

It worries me that after all their family has said and done, that they don't think the UK may perceive them a threat to public order and a source of incitement of homophobic hatred (which is illegal in the UK under the Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill.)

If they were to come here and cause public nuisance (also illegal) by protesting funerals, they'd only get sent back to the US anyway.

Crazies.

This is too precious. She's an attorney who's actually admitted to practice law, and she writes, "I am receipt of ..." -- thanks for making my day!

She is completely unhinged at this point, just like dear old dad.

These people will attempt to litigate their religious view rather than just sit back and admit that the book on which they base their entire world view is the creation of men, not a god.

I'd love to read a response by Jacqui Smith!
