Good, respectful penetrating interview:

ON You Tube:

Nate Phelps is the son of Fred Phelps, infamous pastor of Kansas' Westboro Baptist Church, an entity which asserts that "God Hates Fags," that President Obama is the AntiChrist, and that the terrorist attacks of 9/11 were God's punishment upon the United States.

Gosh, and i always thought our rights came from "We the People..."

Where do these tiny-minded millionaires come from?

A flowchart that's been reposted in many places around the web; it rebuts Christian objections to equal marriage:

"So you still think homosexuality is sinful?
And therefore gays shouldn't be allowed to marry?
"

Well, well, well ... we have the old conflict staring us in the face.

"Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, malay and red, and he placed them on separate continents. And But for the interference with his arrangement there would be no cause for such marriages. The fact that he separated the races shows that he did not intend for the races to mix." 

  - Loving v. Virginia, 1967

Or did all homo sapiens evolve in Africa from earlier primates and over eons of time, migrated to the entire Earth, changing according to their environments into different shades of skin, different body builds, different food sources, different beliefs, and different value systems? Do LGBT's exist on each continent? Are there some cultures who value LGBT's? Are there some societies that elevate them to a high plane than heterosexuals. Does being different in these aspects mean differences matter? 
Where is the moral code, the ethical justification for defining people from one color, or sex, or sexual orientation or body style, or food preference, or beliefs, or values as better that those who differ? 

Is there any difference that matters between white, anglo-saxon, and protestant male individuals and individuals who are black, yellow, malay and red or female or LGBT? 

If there is a difference that matters, show me the evidence.

Sentient Biped, as usual you get to the heart of the issue and I repost here:

"I have to keep reminding myself it is not about the personal beliefs of the founder. It's about the fact that some (a lot) of dollars, that go into the cash registers at the chain's stores, go to spread hate and discrimination against human beings who happen to be LGBT. There are few clearer cases of "voting with dollars" to dehumanize people.  Those dollars actually hurt people, when they go to the hate groups.

Oh, dear.  I was just getting ready to close my accounts with Wells Fargo because of their involvement with "predatory" mortgages....  Maybe I'll leave one account with them.

Life is complicated.

Tammy, average middle class black people in this country, the "pew-sitters," tend to be even more homophobic than similar-class whites.  More of them actually totally disown their gay childen who are brave enough to come out at all.

Like you, I have never understood their deep devotion to a superstitious mind-set that kept their ancestors enslaved for 200 years, and then justified segregation for another 100 years.

But then,  most xians don't make the obvious connection between the sweet little baby in the manger and his only destiny on the cross, nor do they grasp the fact that it's all a myth, anyway.

We still have a long way to go.

What had me screaming at the television this morning, was the clip they kept showing of a black man happy to buy his freaking chicken sandwich in support of marriage as defined by Gawd and the buybull! I thought to myself... not so long ago these same 'good believers' defined being 'black' as a 'curse' according to their bible and that same god...  How is it that he can't seem to comprehend this? As long as I live I guess I will never understand this... at least I hope I never will, I don't want to find empathy with this kind of idiocy and hatefulness...
