(Casper, Wyoming) Anti-gay preacher Fred Phelps has announced intentions to erect a monument to Matthew Shepard the gay college student brutally
murdered five years ago near Laramie.
But, the monument will be no memorial. Phelps says the monument would be 5 to 6 feet tall and made of marble or granite. It would bear a bronze
plaque bearing the image of Shepard and have an inscription reading "MATTHEW SHEPARD, Entered Hell October 12, 1998, in Defiance of God's Warning:
'Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind; it is abomination.' Leviticus 18:22."
Phelps needs a hobby. A different hobby. Honestly this guy is worse than Clinton bashers. The kid is dead, he's been dead for years, let him rest
Oh yeah, how is he able to do this? Also from the article:
After a court battle over a similar monument in the city of Ogden, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that any city that displays a Ten
Commandments monument on public property must also allow monuments espousing the views of other religions or political groups on that same
Folks, this is why we separate Church and State. Any questions?
