Getting an endorsement from Westboro Baptist Church is like getting an endorsement from the KKK. We all know of Fred “God Hates Fags” Phelps and his off-the-wall little church in Topeka, Kansas. So who, if anyone, would those gay-hating churchgoers vote for in 2012? Since Bachmann is out of the race, I automatically assumed they’d pick Santorum.
This, from the same church that excoriates Obama as the Antichrist and embodiment of all evil. Why Westboro’s hatred for the gay-hating 2012 GOP lineup?
According to the Christian Post article, Timothy Phelps, youngest son of Fred Phelps, said:
“These people claim to be Christian, New Gingrich and Mitt Romney and some of them others. They aren’t pure followers of Jesus Christ. I wouldn’t trust [any] of them with a handful of change to go get me some bubble gum. There’s nothing of any value in [any] of those human beings.”
He said the current president would be a better choice despite his support of the LGBTQ community.
I noted that the Christian Post reporter could at no point in the article bring himself to refer to Phelps the elder as “Reverend.”
Everything we wanted to know. And less.
