Countering Hate with Honor and Respect

Here's a really good column by Jon Carroll about people like Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church of Hate.

Come on, protesting a soldier's funeral?

But the best part is that, while he and his furious ilk are free to protest, those of us who do not hate and fear are also free to counter his protest. Men like Tom Angell, a Vietnam Vet, who has joined a group of vets called the Patriot Guard Riders, they aim to counter the protest/assaults of the Phelps Hate Corps. They are now nearly 18,000 strong, more power to them. More power to anyone who will stand up against hate and tyranny. And nothing but shame for Phelps and his flock of hate-mongers.
