When Homophobes Attack
Fred Phelps serves up another bucket of crazy in the wake of Heath Ledger's death. That's right: he's going to protest Ledger's funeral. It's enough to make you wanna go buy a DVD of Brokeback Mountain.
Ironically, Phelps's violently irrational intolerance may do a lot for gay rights in the long run - by inadvertently provoking people to think about what is an appropriate way to treat their fellow human beings. One can hope.
Also, Fred, that hat you always wear is kinda Brokeback. Methinks the cowpoke doth protest too much.
