The Rotting Cryptkeeper's proposed anti-gay monument

In “honor” of Matthew Shepard, this is what Fred Phelps would like to do in Casper, Wyoming.

In response to Casper’s new historical monument plaza, an anti-gay pastor in Kansas has renewed his request to have his own monument in town.

…On Monday morning, the city dedicated a historical monument plaza, which includes the Ten Commandments, the Declaration of Independence, the Mayflower Compact, the Magna Carta, the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Phelps said he would be willing to make his monument resemble the six others and would include a picture of Shepard and the engraving: “MATTHEW SHEPARD, Entered Hell October 12, 1998, at age 21, in Defiance of God’s Warning: ‘Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind; it is abomination.’ Leviticus 18:22.”

Mayor Kate Sarosy said she had not received Phelps’ letter Monday evening and said she would speak with the city attorney and the other council members.

“Mr. Phelps’ message is full of hate and not in the spirit of the monument plaza,” Sarosy said.
