GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee campaigned in Topeka, Kansas today and was greeted by Rev Fred Phelps' homophobic flock from the Westboro Baptist Church. Huckabee has recently equated homosexuality with pedophilia and has suggested that AIDS victims should be quarantined, but apparently that just isn't enough hatred of teh gay for these people. These people are repulsive, but I had to chuckle at the sight of homophobic religious fanatics protesting another homophobic religious fanatic.
