How and why Fred Phelps and the 'Westboro Baptist Church' became out and proud Pedophobes, which is the same as being 'homophobes' in modern media culture, despite all the lying homosexual fetishists and their fan clubs of other assorted deviants and sociopaths do in their hate speech campaigns to 'normalize' their mental illness. Liberal Christianity and Sexual Abuse and Misconduct What goes on with gays is there if you look, but one, non-gays find gay sexual behavior gross and don’t want to think about it, and two, gays expect their public image as nice, normal people not to be questioned. Phelps had discovered a problem, and quite reasonably he expected somebody to do something about it. But the city government was not interested. Churches were not interested. Why? Governments are expected to maintain basic public decency and order, and keeping public spaces free of sexual activity and children free of approach by pedophiles seem pretty high on the list. But even in 1991- which was a long time ago- gays had established themselves politically as a group that was not to be messed with. Even in a relatively culturally conservative place like Kansas, the government of a modestly sized city is going to be run by politically correct liberals. Dealing with evil sometimes requires confronting people. Not confronting people because they are politically or culturally favored is just as wrong as not confronting someone because they are rich, which seems to be a theme in the New Testament. I'm not personally a fan of Westboro's tactics, but I'm not especially offended by them either, and don't mind at all when they annoy deviants and gimps; promoting sick crap is bound to provoke equally extreme resistance. All 'pedophobes' should be as open and annoying as the Phelps on some issues, especially re the phony ridiculous 'gay rights' hoax.
