(WASHINGTON) Reports linking Vice President Al Gore with notorious anti-gay activist Fred Phelps, Jr., and the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas were confirmed with the release of photographs showing Gore at a fundraiser at the home of Fred Phelps, Jr., who told the Conservative News Service on October 16 that he served as a Gore delegate on the floor of the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta in 1988.
Gore, who was quoted by the Nashville Tennessean in 1984 saying homosexuality is not "an acceptable alternative that society should affirm" and said in his 1984 U.S. Senate race that he would not accept money from gay rights organizations and that he opposed a "gay bill of rights," reportedly sought the support of the Phelps family in his 1988 presidential campaign, and invited the Phelps' to the Clinton-Gore inaugurations of January 1993 and January 1997.
Phelps, Sr. told CNS that Gore "looked us in the eye and gave us assurance, that, based on his Bible beliefs, he was against the homosexual agenda and the killing of babies."

I'm sorry if this has already been posted, but I did a search and didn't find anything.
I think most of us at FR are aware of the Phelps Gore tie. I make sure to point it out to the moonbats every chance I get.
I think its helpful because people have been asking about the story and its authenticity.
So, Phelps is a Demorat. By some twisted logic that fits.
Gore is a Democrat. This is not an issue. All that matters is Gore has seen the light and is firmly on the Democratic plantation.
It's not a big secret. The media just doesn't like to talk about it.
I heard a wee rumor that Al Gore has bought a home in the US Gay Mecca of San Francisco.
Thanks. Great link. I think i'll forward it around.
Thank you for this post. I have seen the pictures but never saw an article.
In light of what this guy and his "congregation" are doing these days, I think this should be shouted from the rooftops!
Doncha' get it? Demmycrats can do any damn thing they want (Studds having homosexual acts with minor pages, homosexual prostitution ring in Barney Frank's office, oral sex with that woman--Monica Lewinsky, Jefferson hiding $90,000 in a freezer), belong to anything they want (Sen. KKK Byrd belonging to and being an officer in the KKK), and say anything they want (Bob Beckel who suggested that when the Republicans found out that Foley was gay, that should have been reason to check him--gay bashing?)
It's the stupid party that can't.
None of the people in the 1st paragraph resigned.
Like you, I had seen the pictures but didn't know the story behind it. I felt sure it would be old news to many on FR, but it was likely not everyone knew.
In 1988, Al Gore was actually an honorable man. He was a cold warrior, Contra-supporter, was pro-life and supported Reagan 80% of the time.
Then he invented the Internet ... see what it has done to him!
