Fred Phelps pickets a church in Phoenix, Arizona

On March 21, 1999, Fred Phelps and one other person from his "church" picketed a small Methodist church at around 17th Ave. and Indian School for daring to have Jimmy Creech as a guest speaker. Jimmy Creech is a United Methodist Church pastor who performed a covenant service for two lesbian women.
