An interview of Shirley Phelps by Chris Mason

Chris Mason is a GLBTQ activist who created Phelps-a-thons to raise money when the WBC comes to protest. He also took an all summer trip in 2009 to interview people in all 48 states - he called it Driving Equality. Ifirst met him when he became a GLBT Commissioner. When the WBC came to Cambridge last year his effort raised ~$3500 for GLBTQ organizations in the public schools.

Here is a fine video of his interview with Shirley Phelps who didn't know who he was.

Only 48 states?
Aren't we missing a couple?

..should have left out all. It's kind of hard to drive to Hawaii and Alaska was a bit too far away to make his whole schedule work.

I just fwded this from work to my wife. As you prob. know, we lived in Fram. for many years and raised the kids there. Both attended FHS, and SON was an early or founding member of the GSA there iirc.

She was on the Town Meeting there and very active, including for the schools.

When I clicked on this post from my Friends Page, Frank said "not authorized" or something like that. Maybe you were still editing it or smth.

Shirley Phelps: God created you to kick around

1:52 "Here's what I know. From Eternity past, God hated you. And he did that to you. So I think the right answer would be that, yes, you're born with that. Because it was set in motion in the council halls of Eternity. He says that He creates these, called brute beasts, made to be taken and to be destroyed. He created them vessels of wrath, fitted to destruction. ... That was your purpose for being created. So that God could kick your ass and demonstrate His sovereignty. And that's the answer."

Be calm, my heart.

breathe.....

Um, no. God is God. He would not create a group of humans just to torture/destroy/condemn them to eternal damnation.

That $@#%@ witch is NOT gonna tell me that George is in Hell, even if there is such a place... and I don't believe there is.

A human would destroy entire groups of humans. Been done before by Hitler, Sadam, etc. Not God. God is not human, and, as such, cannot be driven by human frailties. He has other motivations that we humans are unable to fully comprehend.

God is NOT a big angry child with a magnifying glass, setting fire to humans, as though they were mere ants.

The Phelps and their kind are sick, evil, sad people who think of God as being worse than the devil himself!

Their view of God is infantile.. like he is some angry parent. They most likely got this from their parents, who got it from their own parents, and so on..

From a psychological point of view, small children view their own parents as being God-like beings who can punish or reward them, depending upon the child's behavior. This can lead to a tendency to view God as a vengeful parent, all throughout one's life. This is very childish.

I do believe in an afterlife, but it cannot be populated by Phelps and their ilk.

I refuse to believe that the universe is run that badly!

From what I've heard is that one of the WBC objectives is entice people to physically touch them and then they sue for assault; and they've won some cases which is how they are financed.

No need to even touch those "people" at all; we are gay men, and, as such, we can out bitch/out shout/out insult them.. without a need to resort to physical violence.

But: I have seen how evil and foul mouthed these friends of Phelps can be... they are best left alone. Absolute evil corrupts absolutely.

Let them eat each other! :)
