Nate Phelps gives lowdown on hateful anti-gay father and family

Not every member of the Phelps family (i.e. the "God hates fags" group which likes to picket everywhere) are bad people.

In fact, one member, Nate Phelps, is doing what he can to combat the hatred his relatives freely throw out. In a recent interview with ABC's Nightline, he verifies what was probably suspected about his father, Fred Phelps and his family environment.

Newsbusters: How dare CNN treat gay people like normal human beings!

The right-wing media "watchdog" site Newsbusters is angry at CNN for daring to show an hour-long special about a gay couple who has chosen to have a baby because the network supposedly won't show "opposition" to lgbt parenting:

CNN likes to paint itself as the "objective" middle ground in cable news between Fox News and MSNBC. But you don't find the middle with a one-hour June special titled "Gary and Tony Have a Baby." A duo of "gay marriage" activists are the stars "on their quest to have a biological child of their own" -- using an egg donor and a surrogate mother. The trailer is here, championing "the support, the drama" behind "the new American family." The pro-gay blog AfterElton.com noted CNN's own explanation of the Soledad O'Brien documentary:
Unable to legally marry in the U.S., [Gary and Tony] travel to Canada, get married, and spend thousands on an arduous journey toward parenthood via surrogacy and in vitro fertilization. ... Though Gary and Tony had hoped for a happy extended family, they discover instead ambivalence about same-sex marriage. With court battles, and struggles against their hometown community – can these men achieve a life as mainstream as their parents?
CNN is not the "mainstream" media. Like the other liberal networks, they are the "mainstreaming" media, the idealistic leftists who want to take every sexual orientation straight into the center of respectability. "Transgenders" were honored with the two-hour special "Her Name Was Steven" in March. Soledad O'Brien talked to Michael Jensen at AfterElton, and explained this project was never meant to be two-sided

As it is, this is an inaccurate assessment. According to transcript provided by Newsbusters comes the statement by O'Brien:

We tell their (the gay couple's) story very organically. They are activists and there are times when their activism brings them into contact with those that oppose them and we show that. But we don't go out and solicit opinions from those against gay parents.
