Fred Phelps and his ilk: "Driven crazy by their hatred of gay and lesbian Americans"

Wisdom from Iowa: The Des Moines Business Record quotes from a letter from state Sen. Joe Bolkcom.
I think Reverend Phelps and others like him have been driven crazy by their hatred for gay and lesbian Americans. …

Once people give themselves over to hate, they’ve started on a downward path. The Phelps group now welcomes every new tragedy as an excuse to spew forth their hatred and extremism.

Iowa is relatively free of the politics of hate that seems to consume other states. Let’s keep it that way by treating each other with respect and by focusing on improving education, expanding health care, and growing Iowa’s economy.

Amen to that for Iowa, Kansas and the rest of the world.
