Mr. Fred Phelps is sick and in a care facility. How do I feel about that as a gay man? Well, I have mixed emotions. One part of me says he will die and things will somehow become even, however deep down where it really freaking counts that is not me. I have learned something here and there along the way. What I have learned is that hate in whatever form it assumes is still hate. Do I like what this man has brought into the world through his church? Obviously, I do not like it. In fact, I despise it. One might even say that I hate it. I heard someone say that people need to protest his funeral. As I sit here in front of my computer screen watching Hulu Plus, one thing has dawned on me and I have already mentioned it a little earlier. I cannot stand there lifting the banners of protest against this enemy. I know there are some of my LGBT brothers and sisters who do not believe in the bible, but one thing that I have been taught is to love my enemies. Now, I don't' know if I can honestly say that I love Fred Phelps or not, but one thing that I do know, I am not his judge. It would be just as wrong for me to protest his funeral as it would be for his church to protest mine. I guess, I have said what I needed to say. Thanks for listening.
