Jael Phelps, Fred's granddaughter, and her comments before her failed
Edited on Wed Mar-02-05 03:43 PM by Bertha Venation
bid to sit on the Topeka City Council.

She is speaking here about helping to get the repeal attempt on the ballot:

I oppose the ordinance passed by the city council, which equivocated voluntary behavior with immutable characteristics, such as being female, African-American or disabled. There is a moral standard and this not only breaks that, but violates the Constitution, said Phelps.

http://www.washburnreview.org/Issues/Volume131/Issue19 /

I would like to find a way to reach Miss Phelps and ask her A. how the ordinance violates the Kansas Constitution (assuming that's the Constitution she's referring to), B. what "moral standard" she is referring to (with her answers no doubt leading to more questions), C. what anyone's voluntary behavior has to do with anything, and D. where she learned her vocabulary.

2. The Phelps lost bad in that election
Gives me some small hope that this country isn't doomed to be run by our wannabe Christian Overlords.

3. Give up trying to reach these people. Pray for their imminent death.
They are breathing air you could be breathing. It isn't possible to reach some people no matter how high minded we would like to be about it. Some people are assholes and they just need to hurry up and die.

4. Agreed...some people are beyond help...concentrate on the great
mass of unwashed people who are reachable with a little guidance and education.

12. You are right
and I've often said that people like Phelps are wasting my oxygen. I wonder how much of his hot air attributes to global warming. :P

9. A funny, just a small one.
Last night I was pulling into the parking lot to do my interview with the local news before the election and Jael was seated across the lot getting interviewed by the national media, don't know who it was but the lights were on and she was seated there smiling and talking. I pulled my big diesel truck up, not knowing or thinking about it, saw what was happening and sat for a minute knowing it would screw with their sound and hoping it would throw her off. It was just one small comical moment in the election.

13. Let He Who is Without Sin Cast The First Stone
Phelps does not believe in God at all.

15. I wish someone would tell her
That it's against "God's Law" for her to attempt to sit on the City Council. In Timothy, women are forbidden by God to attempt to lead, teach, or speak.

She probably doesn't have that page in her Bible though.
