Thread Name: BS: Matthew Shepard (1976-1998)
Subject: RE: BS: Matthew Shepard
I just read through the link posted by Guest, who is from Topeka, where Phelps lives. Anyone who has time should read through that thread, although it's long and complex. Absolutely unbelievable that this whacko should have the power he has. He was denied the right to picket when he came to Canada once, and had some of his picket signs taken away under our Hate Speech law. All I can say is that I'm really grateful that we have laws against public hate so that we don't have to live with an evil, evil man like Phelps.
And although I am a believer in peacefulness, if I had a gun, and he was in the vicinity, especially if he was preaching his virulent, ugly, profane hatred.......
Read it if you have time; it's worth investigating.
