Phelps, Bringin It To Houston!

Yep, we haven't had this much hate in town since Sean Hannity's "Freedom Concert" last summer. Thank God the folks from Westboro Baptist came through to give us that "Fred bounce"! Not sure if everyone knows but the city of Houston had the nerve to elect an open gay mayor right here in the middle of the Republic of East Texas (land of Cornyn, Kay Bailey, Tom Delay, Dick Armey, Bush(s)...I could go on). Annise Parker's swearing in ceremony was held today and the Phelps clan drove all the way down from Topeka to bless the occasion.

Good on Houston for electing someone on issues instead of fear/hate or other stupidity driven factors. And, good on Houston as well for takin one for the country because if the Phelps bunch is down here, they aren't fuckin up something somewhere else.


  1. I actually see Phelps as kind of like the Bull Connor of the gay rights movement. Just as Connor's fire hoses and police dogs made racial segregation repulsive to a lot of on-the-fence white Americans, Phelps and his "God Hates Fags" posters is making homophobia repulsive to on-the-fence straight Americans.

  2. Hi Dr Jay! Very true. The Phelps bunch is hated at home as well as on the road.

  3. A victory for Houston, and a victory for tolerance. Thanks for the news. BJ
