Did the church oust him because he came out as gay? I mean, we all knew there was a 50/50 chance of him being buried deep in the closet.

/ oh so very deep

I will not succumb to his message of hate.

Rest in Peace, hateful man.

machoprogrammer: His grave should be a place where gay men can go and have orgies on top of it


someone should stick a fleshlight in the ground where he is buried.

I'm predicting an epic thread of epic proportions with concise and thoughtful debate.  *munches popcorn*

Tis but a flesh wound, he's had worse.

Probably tried to get Shirley Phelps-Roper to use some farking shampoo on the greasy stank-ass hair of her's. God Hates L'Oreal too, apparently.

I'll never understand, why do Christians cling to life?
 
2014-03-16 11:14:58 AM  
I think this proves the existence of God.

I've long said that people like him live long lives because they aren't allowed to leave the planet until they stop farking up.  Kind of like how you don't let your dog back in until after you know that it pooped.  God didn't want that filth in His house.

Rather curious to know the details surrounding the excommunication, now.

Yeah, this is just one of many tiny pricks he's had.
 
2014-03-16 11:15:52 AM  
Would have been better if he realized the error of his ways and made some kind of amends to the families he has hurt so deeply throughout the years. I'm just not getting a big happy out of this. What a farking waste and a pity to go through life - as he did - hating and fearing to such freakish levels.

He certainly is/was/whatever every last inch a rotten human being.
 
2014-03-16 11:15:57 AM  
Wow. So much hate going on. Keep it classic farkers.
 
2014-03-16 11:16:05 AM  
Would be kinda nice if he stayed 'near death' a little longer.  You know, with some agonizing pain thrown in for double jeopardy bonus points.

He came out.


Really? Link plz?

I actually doubt that.  I do know that a good number of his brood have defected and left the church.  Most of that number have even come out and said that they think he is wrong and don't have anything against gays.  So I'm wondering if maybe the majority of them didn't buy his brand of crazy, and saw no other reason than to boot him.
 
2014-03-16 11:16:26 AM  
What if we find out that in his last days he took a young man cabana boy into his heart and converted completely to teh gay in his final days.

The screenplay could become the next Brokeback Mountain... with wrinkly old man balls.

//He could be played by Charlton Heston
//Cabana boy could be Zac Efron
 
2014-03-16 11:16:39 AM  
So I casually googled and I can't find any real explanation on his being excommunicated. Just speculation that he's gay. Weirdest wishful thinking ever.

My coffee tasted better after reading this. Freddy boy, tell us again how you are going to heaven? XD
 
2014-03-16 11:17:42 AM  
I'm not going to gloat, but it's hard to pretend that the world won't be a better place without him.
 
2014-03-16 11:18:24 AM  
I'm ambivalent about his death. On the one hand, I believe that he's a reprehensible wretch, and as such his passing will not mean much to the world. On the other hand, I believe that his very vocal protests forced us to both ensure that the First Amendment remains inviolate and review how we as a society view LGBT folks. By calling attention to the clear hate still expressed by so many for LGBT folks, he may have, in fact and in a small way, precipitated the push for equality that we're now seeing.

I am gladdened by the fact that, if things keep going as they're going, he may live just long enough to see DOMA repealed. That warms my heart, to know on his deathbed that he lived long enough to see everything his hate and fear stood for, overturned, just as that hateful bastard croaks.

Pope Pius V on his death bed, repeating: "O Lord, increase my sufferings and my patience!"

Some Christians like the suffering.  It makes them feel like Jesus.

Yeah, that's the interesting bit. Gay pasa?

Wouldn't it be ironic of the Westboro Baptist Church protested his funeral?
 
2014-03-16 11:20:22 AM  
While I think this guy's "contributions" to society have been extremely counterproductive, I'm not so sure that the proper response to him lying in hospice is hateful vitriol.  It strikes me as just as petty as what everyone is upset with him about.

TV's Vinnie: If this rumor is true, remember what I said to you Fark Mods. On that glorious day, just call in sick. Don't even bother to try moderating. There's simply going to be no damn way you can hold back the Tsunami of Schadenfreude that's going to slam through Fark like a Praxis Effect.

Meh. Now when Cheney bites it, that will be cause to party.

For this @$$holes funeral I will carry a rainbow sign and stuff in his coffin

Because they secretly know God doesn't really exist, at least as they perceive it.

JerseyTim: Wouldn't it be ironic of the Westboro Baptist Church protested his funeral?


Wouldn't that be like dividing by zero?

I can see it now: The Phelps clan protesting elder Phelps funeral.  Suddenly a wave of light sweeps out from each of their bodies and washes over the city.  The clan looks around, confused, as if coming out of a trance.  They drop their signs to the sidewalk.  Sherley Phelps, with a smile on her face says to her kin-- "It's over.  The curse is broken."   They celebrate at Denny's.  Fin.

I say, send words of condolences and encouragement, prayers, and thoughts. Kill the bastards with kindness, and show them how Christianity damn well ought to behave instead of their hateful tripe.
 
2014-03-16 11:24:31 AM  
Praise be to God.

If there is a gay parade at his funeral, I'm heading down from Canada.
 
2014-03-16 11:24:41 AM  
Being excommunicated none of the other family members are allowed to visit him so he is wasting away alone in the hospice.

Cheney can't die.  He isn't really Human.  Haven't you seen Phantasm?

Cheney isn't from this world.  He's here to conquer it.

In most cases I feel the same way, but when someone clearly and repeatedly demonstrates that the only emotion they are capable of is hate, then I have no qualms about responding in kind.

After a bad night of beer and Taco Bell, I don't know if Jesus-like is the word I would use.

Can the thread for Phelps' death be the first official use of the Fabulous tag? Please? Pretty please with sugar on top?
