“The Mouth Of God” Is A Hateful, Greasy-Headed Hag

Margie Phelps, lawyer for and member of Westboro Baptist Church, couldn’t wait to get before the cameras after the 8-1 Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday, March 3, 2011 in favor of the cult in Snyder v. Phelps saying is activities are protected free speech.

She called the opinion “ten times better than anything I’d ever imagined,” and she spoke directly at Albert Snyder, adding, “We thank you for putting a megaphone to the mouth of this little church.”

Mr. Snyder is the father of Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder who died in Al Anbar Province in Iraq on March 2, 2006.

Part of the SCOTUS ruling reads:  “Westboro believes that America is morally flawed; many Americans might feel the same about Westboro. Westboro’s funeral picketing is certainly hurtful and its contribution to public discourse may be negligible. But Westboro addressed matters of public import on public property, in a peaceful manner, in full compliance with the guidance of local officials. The speech was indeed planned to coincide with Matthew Snyder’s funeral, but did not itself disrupt that funeral, and Westboro’s choice to conduct its picketing at that time and place did not alter the nature of its speech.”

“Speech is powerful. It can stir people to action, move them to tears of both joy and sorrow, and—as it did here—inflict great pain. On the facts before us, we cannot react to that pain by punishing the speaker. As a Nation we have chosen a different course—to protect even hurtful speech on public issues to ensure that we do not stifle public debate. That choice requires that we shield Westboro from tort liability for its picketing in this case.”

Phelps observed, “I do very much appreciate that I get to be the mouth of God in this matter.”

That statement convinces me, as I’m sure it does many others, that Margie Phelps has created God in her own image since, in her twisted mind, God hates all the same people she does.

The religious zealots first gained the national stage when they protested the funeral of Matthew Shepard, a young man in Wyoming, who was beaten to death because he was a homosexual.  They protested as well the funeral of Michael Jackson and announced plans to appear at the funeral of little 9-year-old Christina Green who was gunned down by Jared Loughner in Tucson in January 2011.  You can read more about their abhorrent spectacles here.

A certain George Soros funded blog cherry-picked (edited) part of an exclusive interview Fox News did with Phelps on Sunday, March 6, 2011. 

“It’s telling that in a week which featured deeply manipulative anti-worker tactics by the Ohio GOP, growing unrest in the Middle East, a court decision allowing implementation of the Affordable Care Act to move forward, and the Main Street Movement’s first steps to recall eight anti-worker lawmakers in Wisconsin, Fox decided to ignore these stories in order to focus on the important question of whether President Obama is the Antichrist.” [Emphasis mine.]

No, the most important question is not Phelps’ high regard for America’s Child Emperor.  It’s about Westboro’s absolutist interpretation of the Bible and its seventy or so parishioners who believe they alone know the true path for America’s salvation.

It’s about the Snyder family and the loss of their brave son, who like others, gave their last full measure of devotion to the cause that gave the Westboro ghouls the ability to express themselves in the manner they have chosen.
