Thank You, Mike Gallagher

Syndicated talk show host Mike Gallagher has once more stepped into the breach to keep a sick, hateful religious group from trespassing upon grief-stricken families in order to get their disgusting message across.

As he did when the Amish schoolchildren were murdered last year, Gallagher is giving one hour of airtime on his show (tomorrow) to the Westboro Baptist Church, led by Fred Phelps. In return, the group will not descend upon the funerals of the VTech victims with signs like "God Hates Fags" and "Your Son is Rotting in Hell." They believe random acts of violence and murder, including the deaths of soldiers in Iraq, stem from God's intolerance of our tolerance of homosexuality.

Nice group, eh?

Last time Gallagher did this, he says he was criticized by many. However, I think he's doing a valuable service to the friends and families of those being buried. The rest of us have the option of not listening to tomorrow's show, while the mourners would have difficulty in ignoring these cretinous slugs.

Thanks, Mike.

Let them show up. They will be "taken care of" if you know what I mean.

I understand why he does it and I applaud him his courage for having those WBC slimeballs in the same physical space. He may be giving them a public platform, but saving those poor families from having to deal with them is worth it. It's one hour - and yes, we can choose to ignore the show for that one hour. The families would probably find it very hard to ignore their presence at the funerals of their loved ones.

Mike Gallagher is giving someone what they seek in order to keep them from harassing or threatening others.

Doesn't that sound like a definition of "terrorism"? Can we now label the WBC as a terrorist group and deal with them accordingly?

If I were an atheist, I'd have to ask why God doesn't just send a well-aimed tornado at WBC, but I know that it doesn't work that way... regardless of what folks said about Katrina and New Orleans.

That being said, I do agree that if something can be done to keep Fred Phelps' inbred whackjob cult from disturbing the mourners, then it's a good thing. The last thing the victims need is that sort of attention.

Does it never occur to these nutbars like Phelps and the Westboro idiots that God made homosexuals too? We are ALL His children, whether we approve of some of our brethran or not. I also recall that the BIBLE, on which Phelps pins his dopey philosophy, has something in it about "Judge not, lest ye be judged." But apparently Phelps and his followers only follow the parts that are convenient for them.
