Krustofsky: Still undefeated:
AcademGreen: 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.
mudmin: Survey. Whose death excites (excited) farkers most?1. Phelps2. Bin Laden
iron de havilland: Well, it does show a level of sociopathy on your part that you can classify him as non-human.
FormlessOne: MooseUpNorth: Tenga: I'll never understand, why do Christians cling to life?Think about it. The entire Christian faith is centered around convincing themselves there's eternal life after death and how to make it pleasant rather than horrific. It's always been about the fear of dying. Christians cling to life because they're terrified not to.It's an odd paradox - Christians have been repeatedly assured, through their faith, that leading a good Christian life assures them an eternity of Heaven. You'd think that good Christians would not fear death, but embrace a good death as the rewarding end to a virtuous life.Kind of makes you wonder just how much faith these folks have in their own religion, honestly.
Lsherm: Maybe this will result in less hate in the world, but I doubt it. Fred Phelps probably had less hate in his heart than your typical Fark lib.
MaestroJ: I'm pretty sure the whole Phelps family is expecting a cacophonous protest. They're very rich - they'll probably hold it in the middle of one of their massive private properties where no one can step foot without getting sued for thousands.
doyner: 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.
whyerhead: Someone should sodomize him with a rusty baseball bat before he dies..
jake_lex: The thing is, too, that if his goal in life was to try to stamp out homosexuality, hhe was a complete and utter failure at it. If anything, he was one of the best friends the gay rights movement ever had, because he just made it clear that behind any effort to deny gay people their rights is raw bigotry.And his rhetoric was so horrifying that it forced other anti gay rights activitsts to tone down their rhetoric, thus makeing it that much harder for them to advocate for what had to have been their dream, a re-criminalization of homosexualty. Because it's hard to make that argument without sounding like the Phelps Family, and puts you in the same group as an asshole who pickets funerals of dead soldiers and children. Of course, that's because what you believe is as noxious and horrifying as what he did, but he denies you the cover of pretending otherwise.He was so ineffective at getting his message across that the only logical sounding explanation has to be that it was all an elaborate insurance scam: provoke people into attacking you, sue them, collect the settlement check.
jaybeezey: whyerhead: Someone should sodomize him with a rusty baseball bat before he dies..Baseball bats are made of wood, you're thinking of those abominations that college kids play with.
Serious Black: I'd love to know what Fred did to get excommunicated from Westboro.
Mad Tea Party: Serious Black: I'd love to know what Fred did to get excommunicated from Westboro.
JohnnyC: jaybeezey: whyerhead: Someone should sodomize him with a rusty baseball bat before he dies..Baseball bats are made of wood, you're thinking of those abominations that college kids play with.Not even... those abominations are made from aluminum. They don't 'rust'. Maybe "pipe" would be more appropriate.
hej: Krustofsky: Still undefeated:How do you figure? Phelps is like five hundred years old and dying a natural death. Never mind that he did more than enough procreating.
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.
bobothemagnificent: If a bunch of people protest his funeral, all you'll do is justify his actions to his supporters. You want to strip him of his supporters, don't do anything. Just ignore him as most of the rest of the country has done. Let him and his stupidity fade away to the pages of insignificance.
that bosnian sniper: Nabb1: Protest? Asshole isn't worth the effort.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.
