Together at last: Barney Frank and Fred Phelps

Posted By on Wed, May 17, 2006 at 11:38 AM

This is a few days late, but worthy of note since Arkansas got on this train early. Here's a blog report on fact that U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, who happens to be gay, was one of only three congressman who opposed the bill to limit public demonstrations by the gay-hating Fred Phelps and disciples of his Kansas "church" at military funerals. Frank got the kind of thanks you'd expect from this hateful bunch. He'd undoubtedly say, as he did in voting against what he thought was unconstitutional legislation, that this is about the First Amendment.
