Gay Irish senator David Norris is now in the cross hairs of the Westboro Baptist Church run by fanatic minister Fred Phelps which pickets US soldiers funerals and claims 'God hates fags' on their website.

Norris made the revelation on Irish radio today.

Norris, is favorite to become Ireland's president but now faces a major challenge after a controversial interview with him from ten years ago about his views on sexuality was broadcast.

He has aroused the ire of the Westboro group because he obtained gay civil rights in Ireland and would be the first gay elected president in Europe.

Fred Phelps, head of the church has previously ranted about Norris and others.

He wrote;
“ I …warned America about Ireland’s sad, sick, sodomite culture and fag Irish Senator David Norris’s case before the European Court of Human (i.e., Fag) Rights. (Incidentally, the “Openly-Gay” fag Irish Senator Norris was represented before that Strasbourg European Fag Court, by the famous Dyke-Enabler and Irish President, Mary Robinson.) We warned that WBC has had lots of experience with Ireland’s militant sodomite citizenry, steeped for many decades in ignorant, blind, idolatrous Catholicism, belching out their vile fagspeak, slander, and blasphemy against God and His Word – cursing WBC members as guests on Dublin talk-radio shows. Remember, Martin Luther said Catholic churches, seminaries and monasteries are nothing but sodomite whorehouses filled with unnatural brute beasts and devils. We warned that the very leprechauns of Ireland are likely to be fags!”

Phelps’ attack on former president Mary Robinson and Norris, drew harsh criticism in Ireland.
