Hatemongers: You Know You're in Trouble When the KKK Doesn't Want to Have Anything to do With You


Apparently, the "Reverend" Fred Phelps, evangelist of hate, is so full of it, that even the Ku Klux Klan has decided to distance themselves from him and his "church". From the New Humanist:

"...the Arkansas chapter of the Ku Klux Klan have, for reasons at present known only to themselves, felt moved to publish a disclaimer on their website pointing out that they are nothing to do with the infamous Westboro Baptist Church, who you may remember by virtue of their persistent "God Hates Fags" picketing of the funerals of US soldiers, who they believe are killed by virtue of God taking his revenge on America for its toleration of homosexuality. Here's the text of the disclaimer:
News Release

Disclaimer:

NOTE: The Ku Klux Klan, LLC. has not or EVER will have ANY connection with The "Westboro Baptist Church". We absolutely repudiate their activities.
Of course I was sceptical at first, but I did a little web checking and it does seem that this appears on the genuine website for the Arkansas KKK (here's the link, but note that it will take you to a KKK website, so if you'd rather not give them a hit you may like to just take my word for it).

When the Ku Klux Klan is repudiating your activities, your bigotry truly has gone off the scale. Not that that will bother the Westboro gang, of course."

That has to be a new low.
