Ping Katherine for a link explaining that Fred Phelps and his followers do not consider themselves "Christians."
Finally, something that I can agree on with "Westboro 'Baptist' Church."
I was actually flipping XM channels today (more on that in an upcoming post after this weekend) and ran across The Klezmatics singing "I Ain't Afraid." The punchline to the song is that the singer isn't afraid of God, he's afraid of what "you do in the name of your god." Fred and friends tend to make real Christians look much worse. When real Christians exhibit what it truly means to be Christ-like (sorry for the popups), God's purpose is served.
