Fred Phelps: June 2003 Archives

June 18, 2003


Des Moines, Iowa, United States: Westboro Baptist Church, home of arch-homophobe Fred Phelps has offered a $1000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a queerbasher who broke a gay man's leg and then forced him to say that he would seek God's forgiveness for being gay. No, it's not April Fools' Day. The attack took place on the same day as Phelps and friends were in Des Moines picketing a school, and is thought to have been inspired by them. Among platitudes such as A crime is a crime. Two wrongs don't make a right. and assurances that the Church does not condone violence, representative Shirley Phelps-Roper let slip the real reason they are confident to offer the reward: they think the pooves are lying and the attack never took place. Is Phelps going soft on gays? News, 18th June 2003.
