With his characteristic approach, the presenter selects subjects whom he perceives as inferior, allowing them ample opportunity to dig their own metaphorical graves.

However, his patience wears thin quickly, often devolving the interview into a spirited, albeit entertaining, verbal clash by the third commercial break.

In this particular episode, the focus is on the fervent Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas. Led by Fred Phelps and his daughter Shirley, the church, operating under the provocative banner “God Hates America,” interprets the Bible literally, especially its condemnation of homosexuality.

Their provocative actions, including picketing soldier’s funerals with signs proclaiming “Thank God For Aids,” have ignited widespread condemnation across the nation.

Even as the presenter acknowledges his own checkered past, including multiple divorces and a history of adultery, he unabashedly assumes the moral high ground.
