zealots

i had somehow missed the news that topeka's least favorite son, fred phelps, and his merry band of hateful pseudo-christians have been demonstrating at the funerals of soldiers who've been killed in iraq. that's nice, isn't it? apparently, god is punishing america for homosexuality in a super-creative way. actually, phelps himself doesn't attend these rallies, because he's too old. i thought i'd heard that he died, but i guess that was wishful thinking.

...they seem so nice, if not, well, nor-mal
