Whenever social conservative Rick Santorum types start whining about persecution and about how the government if about to start rounding up all Christians who speak out against gays, there's really only one retort that you need:

"Fred Phelps is still a free man."
 
2013-07-18 01:10:57 PM
Well I'll say it for the hundredth time "Thank god for the Church of Satan!"
 
2013-07-18 01:11:28 PM
While the satanists tend to spout the most juvenile facepalmy bullshiat, this is actually kind of funny.

r1niceboy: It's the fact he's got a hand of each of their heads that makes this for me.


And that's only the first picture in the series... I'll bet next time Phelps puts a bunch of flowers on the headstone, they'll stay put in gale force winds.

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.

IdBeCrazyIf: Random Anonymous Blackmail: So where does the horned head gear come in ... maybe I don't need to know.

Double ender for the lesbians

nekom: 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.

I already told the wife, get the antibiotics and drugs ready because that's a party I ain't missing


And getting there would be a piece of cake. ANY car that stopped on the freeway would most likely be heading there... Be like hitchhiking to freaking Woodstock.

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

NightOwl2255: scubamage: YoOjo: Phelps is in the closet, no-one makes this much noise about anything without being it.

I wish it was that case. He's a civil lawyer by trade. His whole business is to get people so pissed they punch him, or that he gets carted off by police, and then he sues the bejeesus out of them.

Ain't 'Murika grand?

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.

I actually don't think so. It's (seriously) not the only reason people go full-Phelps-homophobe, and I'd just as soon believe I don't share any urges with him whatsoever.


Yeah, I find it a dumb insult. it's not like Klan members secretly wish they were black. they're just assholes.
 
2013-07-18 01:26:13 PM
I am sure this will in no way fuel these folks' persecution complex...
 
2013-07-18 01:26:29 PM
All these people are doing is lowering themselves to the WBC's level, that's just wrong.

As other posters have pointed out, the end result will be more publicity for those assholes.
 
2013-07-18 01:26:48 PM
there are more "satanists" out there than you think, but the vast majority do not meet in any official capacity, do not have organized gatherings, and do not tell anyone.  Most "satanists" simply appear to be religion free and most "satanists" are not going to attention whore about BEING a "satanist".

/give those lesbian chicks a couple years.  one will be married to a man, the other will likely be engrossed heavily in Christianity.  the gay dudes will likely just still be gay dudes.

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!"

Gunny Highway: I have never meat a Satanist.  Where do these people exist?


The first Satanists were described in Song of Roland. They are Muhammedans that worship Termagant and Apollo, and stand for everything we don't.

La Vey Satanists are atheists.  I think this is a different sort.

Also, the church made up Satanism LONG before that.

2013-07-18 01:30:40 PM
You have to imagine Fred Phelps literally choking on his own rage to truly understand and enjoy this. And then Imagine him describing it to somebody else.

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.
 
2013-07-18 01:31:23 PM

mainstreet62: 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?


Well, they're Satanists, you know.

They're employed in various positions, a lot of state (union) positions for obvious reasons.  It doesn't take much money to live modestly in Kansas and the last I read 4 of them make ~200k combined in three state positions.

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.
