Hooray For Mike Gallagher!

You may have never heard of Mike Gallagher, or you may know who he is and completely dislike him, but either way you should respect him for his actions today. Mike is the host of a nationally syndicated radio show and a FOX News contributor. Today on his radio show he hosted some of the members of the Westboro Baptist Church. People are pissed about this. In fact, people are downright furious that Mike allowed them to be on his show for the full hour today. The Westboro Baptist Church is a group from Topeka, Kansas who believe that all tragedies happen because we allow homosexuals to live instead of killing them. Today, they spent an hour on national radio talking about their beliefs. That's why people are mad, because they feel like Mike Gallagher should not have given these people any airtime. Some people think Mike only did it for ratings and some people are saying he invited these hateful people to his show because he agrees with their beliefs. But I am grateful for Mike Gallagher today and I respect what he did with his radio show.

Today in Pennsylvania, funerals were held for 4 of the girls who were killed on Monday in the Amish school shootings. The Westboro Baptist Church was not on-hand to protest like they had originally planned to be. Instead, they allowed Mike Gallagher to give them an hour of on-air radio time in exchange for their protesting at the funeral. Here's Mike's take on it all.
