You see, Mr. Hope was, as Rev. Phelps' informs us, a "fag-enabler." He continued to support the US military even after it had been "taken over by fags." But there's worse! In 1988, Bob Hope made a television public-service announcement on behalf of GLAAD, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, in which he stated that anti-gay bigotry "has no place in this great nation." (You can read the entire frightening text of this dastardly production at http://www.commercialcloset.org/cgi-bin/iowa/portrayals.html?record=794.)
Dear Bob: I didn't have much common ground with you while you were alive, but it seems we might have agreed on one or two things. I hope you're enjoying a pleasant round of golf, wherever you are.
