I suspect that Phelps believes every word of his delusions. I also don't understand why it matter if he doesn't. I was in full agreement with you until that last point.

I guess if we are talking political speech, which is very protected, and someone is lying about believing in a position because he has a financial interest in the outcome I could see some distinctions. But, if the issue is he's actually not a raving loon but is lying because he aspires to be one, I'm not sure I see what the difference is.
That's valid. My assumption is that he'd be lying for financial gain, or simple notoriety. In which case he'd be damaging his family Munchausen style.
