The Chaser this week took a look at the folks behind godhatesfags.com, the Westboro Baptist Church and sent Firth along to say hi.
The head of the church, Fred Phelps is almost too extreme to warrant arguing with, some even suggest he’s such a caricature of the anti-gay movement that maybe the whole things a hoax. His bio on Wikipedia is a very interesting read, and among other things it would appear he pretty much killed his sons wife in order to crush him.
The most logical explanation for his insanity though seems to be that “Westboro serves to enable a paraphilia of Phelps, wherein he is literally addicted to hatred”. He pretty much gets off on hating.
