A Nashville journalist puts the pieces together involving America’s Sweetheart, Fred ‘God Hates Fags’ Phelps:
“This is a sham, and it is a trap to get people sued.
Every member of his family is an attorney. Phelps does not break the law. What he does is try to make you break the law by trying to punch your sensbilities about everything you hold dear, and then sue you and everyone municipality around him to the max. Whether he believes his posters or not is irrelevant. He’s using this as a moneymaking scheme.
Lay one finger on him, do one thing that violates him, and he will sue you, and more importantly, the city, the police department, the US Military, and any private property owner he happens to be standing on to make money off of it. They never stay more than thirty minutes (I assume they realize that someone will do something to them the MOMENT they come out of the vans, and really, after that, they get their camera shots to cause the outrage for the next stop, and then they move on) to maximize their profits, because time is money, and really, they’re not interested in the message, because they’re just interested in the lawsuit. I saw that he was way too calm and collected for what he looked like in the media. I noticed that he never made personal statements against a person, which is verbal assault, and an out against a lawsuit. I have spoken to them, and they have a lawyers sensibility on them on how they speak to the public.
They never make personal attacks. They never verbally assault anyone. For a group of people that are accusing damn near every group of people around them for going to hell, wouldn’t that seem odd to you? Do you know any religious fanatics that don’t make personal attacks? I don’t.”
From Fred Phelps is a Con Man.
