I felt motivated to write a strip about Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church after hearing about how they were going to hold protests at all the victims of the the Tucson, AZ shootings funerals. Pretty unbelievable. I've know about them for quite some time and always wondered what could motivate someone to act in such a venomous and hateful way. The only logical thing I can think of is Phelps and his followers actually believe they are carrying out God's message. And I'm not so sure that's all that logical. I wonder what dinner at the table is like with this guy.
