Spero News has a section like any newspaper that is set aside for opinion and commentary.
I missed this. It started as an opinion piece by Religion EditorÂ MartinÂ Barillas. He didn’t think NPR should call WestboroÂ Baptist Church conservative.Â Â Typical opinion piece like hundreds every day.
Then it took a twist.
The Patriot Guard Riders, a group of motorcyclists who block the Phelps clan when they protest at military funerals, responded to Barillas’ commentary. They didn’t think Barillas should call them counter protesters.
Martin got another opinion piece out of it when Ms. Margerie Phelps (daughter of Fred Phelps) emailed him. He put up his second opinion piece about her email – Westboro Baptist responds to my NPR column.
Ms. Phelps must have been pleased because she commented under that commentary.
I haven’t read it all, there isÂ aÂ fair bit ofÂ name calling and hate, I lost interest pretty quickly. IÂ think itÂ rates ‘not safe for work.’
