I name this Open Thread in honor of Fred Phelps — a Kansas preacher, gay rights foe, and sick f–k — who will picket tomorrow’s Boise, Idaho memorial service of a National Guard soldier killed in Iraq.
A flier on the Web site of Pastor Fred Phelps’ Westboro Baptist Church claims God killed Cpl. Carrie French with an improvised explosive device in retaliation against the United States for a bombing at Phelps’ church six years ago. … A protest is planned for July 11 at Dover Air Force Base, the military base where war dead are transported before being sent on to their home states.
