Today Advocate Magazine posted an article regarding anti-gay crusader Fred Phelps' "civil rights" past. Many are re-posting this on Facebook.
This is irresponsible journalism on the part of the Advocate Magazine. It's not new information, it's not researched, and it's not news.
Please read son Nate's views about about Fred's activism:
"Early on in his legal career he discovered an untapped gold mine in the Civil Rights Act of 1964."
The entire speech is long, painful, and a recommended read.
A unique perspective of the Fred Phelps/Westboro Baptist Church phenomenon, and a place to connect to Nate Phelps.
