Fred “God Hates Fags” Phelps and his brood of America-hating nutcases are claiming that presidential candidate Fred Thompson once saw “eye to eye” with them in their hatred of LGBT people.

From Fox News:

Thompson was hired for a mid-1980s legal case in Kansas on the recommendation of Margie Phelps, daughter of Westboro founder Fred Phelps.

The Topeka, Kan.-based church is now best known for protesting at soldiers’ funerals, claiming their deaths are retribution for the nation’s acceptance of homosexuality.

Thompson campaign spokeswoman Karen Hanretty on Wednesday dismissed the church as “a radical fringe group, looking to draw attention to themselves.”

“Their behavior at the funerals of fallen soldiers is disgraceful and reprehensible,” she said. “In no way do these people share Fred’s values.”

Church members released an open letter to Thompson this week, saying he had discussed his views on homosexuality with them while handling the case of a woman who had sued the state’s Republican attorney general for sexual harassment.

“We know what your position used to be on the homosexual question _ and it was wonderful, and we saw eye to eye,” church members said in the letter to Thompson.
