God Hates Israel

Who knew Pastor Fred Phelps moonlights as an MP in the Israeli parliament? Sure he may go by an alias (Shlomo Benizri), but could anyone mistake his piercing logic? Phelps (a.k.a. Shlomo) recently told an Israeli parliament committee that the country's two earthquakes late last year were a warning from God that they need to stop being so nice to gays. Israel decriminalized homosexuality in 1988 (which was a lot sooner than Texas, by the way), and they've passed a few gay rights laws here and there since then. The committee to which Fred/Shlomo was speaking met to discuss emergency preparedness procedures in case of another quake. Benizri/Phelps' plan? Be a complete douche. More details here.
