Text from this Facebook post:

Fred Phelps was just an unpolished version of most “respectable” anti-gay “Christian” organizations, such as Focus on the Family, Heritage Foundation, Traditional Values Coalition, Family Research Council, Concerned Women for America, et al. The only difference? They have expensive focus-groups that tell them to speak in code — and use hair conditioner.

As I told his daughter Shirley: We talk in code. We don’t “hate fags;” we “pray for sinful homosexuals.” Frankly, you unsophisticated loudmouths are showing our hand. And the world of big-budget politics is no place for candor. Try expressing your religious prejudices in more artful, consumer-friendly ways. Instead of “God hates fags” try something that’s worked really well for us: Love the sinner — but hate everything about them! Because hate doesn’t need to sound ugly. Hate Pretty. Like we do.
