There was an article in the Wichita Eagle a few weeks back by Bob Getz,
who had an interview with Phelps. It was after Phelps picketed the funeral
of Clinton's mother (and sent the president a picture of him and the dearly
departed with the caption: "AntiChrist Bill Cliton & his evil Jezebelian
mother"). Some quick questions and answers from the article:
Q. How can you do stuff like picket funerals? [What a well-worded question.
keeps up with the high standards of the Wichita Eagle.]
A. A little hurt now saves a big hurt later.
Q. How do you think Randy Shilts' family might have felt if they had seen
your fax "news release" showing a photo of Shilts under the prominent
words, "FILTHY FACE OF FAG EVIL," with another picture of demons in hell
A. If I'd known their address, I would have sent them the press release.
Q. What if Shilts' parents might actually agree with you to some extent
already about homosexuality? Why subject them to signs like "fags burn in
A. If they're good people and agree with me ... [Omission by Eagle, not
me] they'd be on the phone telling me, 'Thank you, Brother Phelps.' And
they would have invited me to preach his funeral.
