“Reverend” Fred Phelps – Closet homosexual?
Do not be surprised when the “Reverend” Fred Phelps has his very own “Ted Haggard” moment. There is some enlightening folk wisdom among homosexual men. One bit of this folk wisdom is that the less secure a man is in his own heterosexuality the less comfortable he will be with homosexuality. Men who are less comfortable with homosexuality compensate with open hostility toward homosexuals. “Reverend” Fred Phelps is obviously very hostile toward openly homosexual men. Homosexual men often refer to these openly hostile men as “three beer queers” or “six beer queers.” This represents an estimate of the amount of alcohol needed to lower inhibitions to the point where repressed homosexual desire gets the upper hand. Based on all the loud anti-gay rhetoric it is clear there is a lot of repressed homosexual desire out there. A logical extension of Darwin’s Theory of evolution even reveals the most likely reason why this is so. In short religion acts as a section pressure on the gene pool of humanity. Religion skews the gene pool to favor genes for brains which are most likely to be controlled by religion. One characteristic which favors control by a religion is a heightened sensitivity to guilt – and built in guilt triggers.
