Blithering-Mouthed Monster Calls Anti-Monster Bill Monstrous

Phelps' Granddaughter Blasts Funeral Protection Bill

from Talahassee Democrat

Megan Phelps-Roper called down her version of a vengeful, Old Testament God on the heads of lawmakers and the people of Florida today.

She called the Florida Senate the "American Taliban," and said its efforts to end her church's protests at the funerals of fallen veterans are unconstitutional.

"America flips off God on a daily basis," Phelps-Roper said. "Now he is avenging [Our Word-of-the-Day! - it doesn't mean what she thinks] America."

Phelps-Roper, granddaughter of Fred Phelps and a member of his Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., believes that by countenancing homosexuals, the nation dooms itself.

Members of the church travel the country protesting at military funerals, expressing glee at the deaths of soldiers as divine retribution and shouting anti-gay slurs.

Lawmakers today advanced legislation that would further protect families of fallen soldiers from facing just such protests. The full House and a Senate committee approved a bill to increase the fines for public disturbances at military funerals.

Senators heard Phelps-Roper out, but not with pleasure.

Sen. Mike Bennett, a Bradenton Republican and sponsor of the Senate bill, is a Vietnam War veteran. Bennett referred to Cpl. David A. Bass, a Tennessee man killed April 2 in Iraq. Phelps' church members protested at Bass' funeral in Nashville earlier this week.

"She should thank God for Corporal Bass, who gave his life so she could stand up and run her blithering mouth," Bennett said.

The room broke out in thunderous applause as Bennett turned to leave, his lips tight and eyes shimmering in anger.


Often seen at cemetaries by horrified mourners, ghouls gleefully feed off the corpses of strangers, as is their perverse, unholy nature.
