Fred Phelps and his merry band of assholes is in town. On the bright side, Freepers had this to say about them:
"All the stuff they're talking about, homosexuality and everything, it's really not an issue with me," said Jim Melville, 64, a Free Republic member. "It's that they're carrying their message against these guys in that hospital. They can believe whatever they want. It's a free country. I just don't like it happening here, in front of these troops."
Another member, Buford Demming, 48, said: "You cannot get any lower than this. Lowest of the low. Even some of the liberal groups, the antiwar crowd, I don't think it would even occur to them to protest at a funeral or someplace like this."
Thank you for acknowledging that Liberals have nothing to do with Fred Phelps and his merry band of assholes.
