Just Repulsive

In one of the most disgusting displays of hate and anti-patriotism I’ve ever heard of, an extended family of Christian zealots has been heckling the families of fallen soldiers at those soldiers’ funerals. The Phelps family shouts at the families and wave signs that say such things as “Thank God for Dead Soldiers” and “God Hates Your Tears.”

Their complaint? That the soldiers are fighting for a nation that accepts homosexuality. That’s right. These despicable people are so filled with hatred for homosexuality that they are cheering for the deaths of our soldiers. Obscene. Beyond obscene.

There are not words to express how repulsive I find these people. They may call themselves Christians and Americans, but they make a mockery of all that both Christians and Americans stand for. And while it may seem silly for me to devote space to renounce such obviously out-of-the-mainstream crackpots, I have criticized far better people for far less egregious transgressions. It is only through shining a light on the cruel ideologies of our most disturbed citizens that we can hope to keep our moral footing in these difficult times.

Yes, the Phelps family is far outside the mainstream. And there they should be forced to stay.

They sort of remind me of the Ewells in To Kill a Mockingbird. Except worse, if that's possible.
