Irish Dandies Disliked in Kansas

Kansas' own Fred Phelps, a very funny man, if not quite as funny as, say, Irish dandy Oscar Wilde, is in the news for having a go at an Irish poet and Ireland itself, according to the PinkNews in Britain.

Phelps, of Kansas based Westboro Baptist Church, was reacting to a poem written by Irish poet, Desmond Egan called Understanding God Took Quickly in Topeka:
Mr Phelps told the Irish Independent, The Bible says that the only thing worse than a fag is a fag enabler. He is pushing the fag agenda in his poems and he is on his way to hell.

Mr Egan is married with children, but Mr Phelps called him a fag in denial.
Ireland is a land of sodomite dandies since it joined the EU, although it is not quite as bad as Sweden yet,
Mr Phelps added
Dandy? Defined by Princeton's dictionary as: bang-up, bully, corking, cracking, great, groovy, keen, neat, nifty, not bad, peachy, slap-up, swell, smashing (very good) "he did a bully job"; "a neat sports car"; "had a great time at the party"

Handy Irish Phrase: Ná bí róbheag is ná bí rómhór leis an gcléir   (Don't be too small and don't be too big with the clergy)
