Beyond Belief

October 16, 2003

Re "Intolerance Chiseled in Stone Hits City Hard," Oct. 12: I'm pleased that the good Rev. Fred Phelps has made it his mission to torment the memory of gay murder victim Matthew Shepard. His hateful, venomous ramblings illustrate how bigotry is a form of mental illness, and those suffering from it are in dire need of psychiatric help. Of course, in order to receive help, one has to first acknowledge that he has a problem. Somehow I feel that Phelps is too far gone to be redeemed.
