RE: Hitching Your Hobby Horse to the Latest Tragedy

James Lileks over at has spotted several instances of the shameful phenomenon I described in this post below.

An excerpt:

Fred Phelps and his contemptible claque believe that God made the bridge fall because Minneapolitans didn’t round up the gays and burn them at a Loring Park bonfire, so they’re going to protest the funerals of the people who died in the bridge collapse.

Fred has issues.
