Feel "bad" that Rev. Phelps did not make it today from Kansas. His wife and 10-12 deacons and their wives have been here since Friday. Guess he is busy stirring the pot somewhere else. This weekend is the 5th anniversary of one of my neighbor boys, Matt Shepard, who was killed in Laramie. Phelps wanted to erect a monument in City Park (next to the 10 Commandments) celebrating 5 years in hell. Kid you not. Now the media will never tell the real story of how Matt tried to "hit" on a nice, clean-cut kid at the bar (thinking he was gay). The boy was so enraged that he and his buddy lured Matt out, then tortured and killed him. The two are serving long prison terms . . and probably learning more about sodomy than they care. But FUNDAMENTALISM and especially BAPTISTS are taking a beating by Phelps et al coming to our town and parading around every October. This kind of "extreme fundamentalism" is very hurtful to the cause of Christ. Thoughts?
