I actually LOL'd at the part about Fred Phelp's mom now being gay in the afterlife. Now that's how you do silly.

No, it's not maximum trolling.  WBC still gets the publicity out of it, which is what they want.  This 'Satanic Temple' is being played for fools.

Normally I'd say this is asinine, juvenile and disrespectful. In this case, come on he's practically BEGGING for this sort of thing.

Also, I don't know who originally said it, I believe it was a Farker, but Phelps' funeral is going to look like freaking burning man.

Wow......

Sure, WBC's actions are abhorrent to the extreme, but to do that on Phelps mom's grave is flat out nasty. I'm not saying the WBC never did anything nasty, they absolutely did.

It's a shot across the WBC's bow, for sure. I wonder how they will respond?

And,  technically, I think that's what they had to do to turn Phelps' mother gay in the afterlife.  I'm pretty sure that the ceremony they performed just made her confused and a little bit curious.  Definitely need scissoring to turn her gay.

She's dead and has been dead a very long time, WTF does she care. Maybe Fred will experience for one second something like what he does the families that are just dealing with their 20-something year old son dying before his time.

"Fred Phelps is still a free man."

1) WBC already gets a crap-ton of PR, this little stunt won't add any significant PR to that hill that they've accrued.

2) Satanists, trolling fundamentalist Christians since the Dark Ages.

3) If all this accomplished was a momentary, split second, spat of rage in that gnarly old black thing that Phelps calls a heart, then it was worth every penny that it cost to see it done.

4) I would like to see this repeated with most of his dead relatives, followed up by lots of picket signs at their protests saying "Phelps' mom is gay and in hell thanks to us.  Hail Satan!"

LaVey Satanism isn't really about Satan per se, it's more about saying to hell with organized religion and social conformity. If it pays homage to Satan, it'd be more in line with the Satan from Paradise Lost than Satan "evil dude who wants to eat your soul and such while wearing all red and making those damn yankees lose while we all sacrifice virgins."

It's actually a pretty neat take on religion if you can get past some of the whackadoodles who are involved with it.

Fano: The first Satanists were described in Song of Roland.


I had to read that, over twenty years ago, in college. As I recall now, it's what you'd get if you turned the movie "300" into an epic poem: something short on plot and character development, but long on violent confrontation. It must have been the Medieval version of an action movie. Just stanza after stanza of characters getting "cleaved through the head down to the hauberk" and descriptions of the two halves of their heads just being held together by little strings of muscle until they both plopped down to the ground. It read like a snuff film. I'm sure I'm misremembering it, but all I recall was just gore-splattering death after gore-splattering death. Why this hasn't been made into a movie, I have no idea.

No it's not.  Do not degrade the kind of douche bag that Phelps and his ilk are.  They are NOT making money off this "thing" of theirs.  They really believe it.  That's worse than doing it for money.  They really hate people.  So, please don't go around mitigating the degree of douche baggedness that they are.  Your statement is untrue and releases them from the real immorality of their hate and hypocrisy.

That's been debunked. They've made next to nothing from civil suites. They make their money as worker comp\personal injury lawyers for other people. They advertise all over Kansas.

I remember seeing a comment a while back from another farker who lived near them about that subject. He was saying that their protests get them approximately zero, but they still rake in the dough because while everyone in KS says they hate the WBC, when they need a lawyer they run to the Phelps law firm.


Ok, the is plausible.  I'd like to see proof as I am skeptical of this claim, but it is plausible.  No, I am not asking you to provide a site source.  I'll try to find out for myself.  I just hadn't seen this claim and it would be worth looking into.

Nobody has seen Phred in quite a while... I wonder if he's even still alive.  Wouldn't surprise me to find out that he died a while ago and the family buried him somewhere on their compound.  That's illegal and would be grounds for a search warrant, and then authorities find... who knows what.  A stash of guns, a gay torture/sex dungeon, child porn, Phred's mummified remains posed on an alter in some kind of weird ancestor-worship shrine?  All the above?

Now now, don't be too rash.

I don't know. It seems difficult to argue "homosexuality is a choice" if you can't see yourself choosing it. (Though many of these folks are also good at compartmentalizing, so I could be off base).

My pet theory: if you're growing up in a fundamentalist family/social circle and have gay/bi stirrings, you certainly can't talk about it, and so you might reasonably assume that all men feel the way you do. From there it's not a big leap to "homosexuality must be stigmatized, or society will collapse as all men give up women."

I DO think, on the other hand, that they spend tons of time and energy discussing "What can we do to maximize the likelihood of causing Fred to have a seizure?".

On this mother's grave?

Also, remember these are the people who grabbed (and continue to use) westboro-baptist.com.

I think that you have to be mentally ill to get right and wrong that thoroughly mixed up.  And I tend to have a degree of pity for people who are truly sick.  Not enough that I forgive their behavior mind you, but enough that I don't get as angry about it.

I mean, if they weren't so litigious and big in the media... if people shunned them as thoroughly as they should and Phelps were so poor that he was forgoing meals in order to stage his protests... wouldn't you feel less angry, and more "disgusted pity" for him?  Picture Phelps with scurvy and three teeth, ranting faithfully to nobody on a soapbox in Bumfark, Kansas, and then picture him with gold teeth and a private jet chuckling to himself that "everybody bought the act" while his cause is picked up and carried on by thousands of brainwashed fundies.   One of those scenarios makes me a lot angrier than the other.

Angel: "I'm sorry, Mrs. Johnson, but you are being sent down to Hell now."

Angel: "Well, you see...there was a certain Satanic ritual performed over your grave and..."
Cathy: "Satanists?! What kind of ritual?!"
Angel: "Well...have you noticed that you have been sexually attracted to women in the past few hours?"
Cathy: "What?! No!"
Angel: "It might take a few hours for the ritual to take full effect. Regardless...we have a strict policy here in Heaven - NO HOMOSEXUALS. I'm sorry, but the Satanists have turned you gay. There's nothing that we can do."
Cathy: "This is ridiculous! Why on Earth would Satanists..."
Angel: "...yes, I think you know why."
Cathy: "Haven't I suffered in purgatory long enough for my sins of mothering Freddy? And now this?"
Angel: "Yes, we all wish that you had been a better mother. Alas. Anyhow...please pack up your personal belongings. There will be a car to pick you up in a half hour."

Correct. Most of the negative connotations against the church came from the "Satanic Panic" from the 1970's to the 1980's, where the church was accused of hosting tons of criminal activities. These were later dismissed by the feds when they actually investigated them. Stealing goes directly against the Church's teachings.

Actually, given Satan's M.O. as the great deceiver, it would be fine. We wants damned souls, however it comes about. If you can live a life of appearing to be good and entice others into your ways just to get them to commit that *one* act that condemns them for eternity, perfect. So many depictions of Satan show him as a beast and monster. More likely he would be the most attractive, likable, seducer ever.

To put it another way, he is lawful evil with pure charisma stats. He will use the rules and the system to corrupt and break you so that those same rules make you his.

Actually, given Satan's M.O. as the great deceiver, it would be fine. We wants damned souls, however it comes about. If you can live a life of appearing to be good and entice others into your ways just to get them to commit that *one* act that condemns them for eternity, perfect. So many depictions of Satan show him as a beast and monster. More likely he would be the most attractive, likable, seducer ever.

To put it another way, he is lawful evil with pure charisma stats. He will use the rules and the system to corrupt and break you so that those same rules make you his.

and that has dick-all to do with La Veyan Satanism.  La Veyan Satanism basically says that there ARE no "deities".  We are our OWN gods.  He called it Satanism to be shocking.  It is really just humanism with some dogma attached because as he said, "humans like dogma".

Lando Lincoln: frepnog: //you are not accurate.  La Vey didn't "preach".  he held the occasional "black mass" mostly for media attention.  what he espoused was "do not turn the other cheek, give back to others what you receive".  in other words, if someone is an ass to you...  be an ass right back unless it pleases you to not.

LaVey was a big proponent of the "might is right" philosophy. If someone is too weak to stop you from taking what is theirs, then they are the ones at fault. It's primal, but it's the way nature works.


heh.  that is basically true.  it didn't mean "use Satanism as an excuse to go around stealing" however.

Fireproof: OK, but one is basically as far from the truth as the other. It's basically a small family cult. Read the interviews and such by the members that have left sometime.

for example:

All Cathy did was express his personal views to a few two-bit religious blogs. He didn't make a lot of noise about it. He also donated money to groups that he felt was in line with his beliefs, that's not making a lot of noise.

Who actually made a lot of noise about it were groups trying to tell people how to think, and it backfired miserably. Chik-Fil-A pretty much sold out their stock, even with extra trucks coming in, drive through lines were wrapped around the block, and people happily waited for 2+hours to show their support, not for Cathy's personal viewpoints, but for his right to say what he believes.

I was one of those people, I'm a stone-cold atheist, and an advocate of gay rights...but I'm farking sick and tired of people telling other people what to believe, and what they should say and not say.

They are professional trolls, in the truest sense of the word. Any lack of success at their lawsuits only speaks to their lack of legal expertise.

They're Satanists.  I don't think "looking good" is high on their list of priorities. I mean, haven't these guys pretty much been trolling christians since the the Enlightenment?

There are no such things as actual satanists. It's just a name people throw out to try and get attention.

I'm pretty sure there are, but the vast majority of them are the rebelling 14-year-old children of Southern Baptist ministers.

Unfortunately the WBC doesn't actually believe in shait so, while funny, I doubt it will actually accomplish sufficient trolling.

/That being said, I laughed pretty hard at the whole "your dead mom is now gay and likely banished to hell" bit.  You may get some faux outrage there.

No.  They really do hate people.  They have made very little on any lawsuit or settlements.  Let's not excuse their hate and hypocrisy with ignorance.

Can't it be both? Maybe they really do hate people, and also make a bunch of money off of their lawsuits. Now I'm curious though.


Ok.  My point is, that they have NOT made any money (or at least very little money) on these lawsuits.  How can it be both if the second option lacks any actual monies?  If they have not made any money, then why do they do this?  Simple answer:  true believers.  Why is that so hard to believe?

Z-clipped: Magnus: Z-clipped: Magnus: They are NOT making money off this "thing" of theirs. They really believe it. That's worse than doing it for money.

I'm actually not sure which is worse.

I am.  But, that's just my opinion.

I think that you have to be mentally ill to get right and wrong that thoroughly mixed up.  And I tend to have a degree of pity for people who are truly sick.  Not enough that I forgive their behavior mind you, but enough that I don't get as angry about it.

I mean, if they weren't so litigious and big in the media... if people shunned them as thoroughly as they should and Phelps were so poor that he was forgoing meals in order to stage his protests... wouldn't you feel less angry, and more "disgusted pity" for him?  Picture Phelps with scurvy and three teeth, ranting faithfully to nobody on a soapbox in Bumfark, Kansas, and then picture him with gold teeth and a private jet chuckling to himself that "everybody bought the act" while his cause is picked up and carried on by thousands of brainwashed fundies.   One of those scenarios makes me a lot angrier than the other.


The outcome remains the same in this case, whether hate of greed.  I don't want to speak to any scenarios outside of this one.

Is he mentally ill?  Probably not in the truest sense of the term.  Are his family members mentally ill?  Same answer.

I look at his motives.  He obviously is not doing it for money because he hasn't sought nor received very much money in all his litigious years.  His motive is hate.  I don't rank greed as some form of immoral or sinful state in and of itself.  Unwarranted hate, on the other hand, I do.

But, if this is just a marketing campaign for his law business, you may win the motive guessing game.  I am skeptical of that idea, though.

But, once again, just my opinion on the top ten most disgusting and immoral behaviors.

Prank Call of Cthulhu: Fano: The first Satanists were described in Song of Roland.

I had to read that, over twenty years ago, in college. As I recall now, it's what you'd get if you turned the movie "300" into an epic poem: something short on plot and character development, but long on violent confrontation. It must have been the Medieval version of an action movie. Just stanza after stanza of characters getting "cleaved through the head down to the hauberk" and descriptions of the two halves of their heads just being held together by little strings of muscle until they both plopped down to the ground. It read like a snuff film. I'm sure I'm misremembering it, but all I recall was just gore-splattering death after gore-splattering death. Why this hasn't been made into a movie, I have no idea.

If you can deny that many public lesbians end up with men then you are simply denying reality. Anne Heche was a well known lesbian.... Until she wasn't. Amber Heard came out as a lesbian and claimed it... Until she retconned her statements and well wasn't. They are not the only well known lesbians that suddenly weren't any longer. All the bull about deep dickings doesn' t change that fact. Ellen Degeneres and Rosie are about the only ones that remain. Truth is what it is.... And I stand behind the statement that in a couple years if we could track down these two here satanic lesbians you will find at least one has married a man. I could be wrong of course... But I keep being right about these things.

Yeah, I never really bothered to look into it. It does seem plausible though. You never really hear about a payout, and scummy people seem to generally make for good lawyers. I may not like Sleezy McSleezerton, Esq. as a person, but I might just give him a ring if I'm in legal trouble.

Portia de Rossi is a "famous lesbian".  Ellen Degeneres is a "famous lesbian".  Amber Heard had one relationship with a woman in her entire life, and Anne Heche was a sexually abused child of two wacko Christian fundies (one of whom was gay and died of AIDS, while the other became a pray-the-gay-away "therapist") who had a complete psychotic break after dating one woman in her entire life.

The words "confirmation bias" are key to your view of lesbians, as are the words "bisexual erasure".
