God Is My Co-Pirate: 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.

That's why I'm going to celebrate by kissing another girl.


That's the spirit!

JohnnyC: iron de havilland: Well, it does show a level of sociopathy on your part that you can classify him as non-human.

I'm sure Fred Phelps is immensely comforted by you considering him one of your own.


He is a human being. He's not "one of my own" insofar as his hatemongering goes, but I'm quite happy knowing that I'm a better man than he.

But, he deserves all the rights accorded to all people.

Although you're probably kidding yourself. He probably thinks you're gay and hates you even as he draws his final, undeserved, breath.

He's free to do that, as I'm free to think him a terrible person.

It's just a shame that so many people who call themselves Christians ignore the teachings of Christ.

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.


You do know the Phelps clan has no actual supporters right?

You know they are a clan of lawyers and disbarred lawyers?

You know they make their money by doing these protests and then suing anyone who attempts to stop them, or anyone stupid enough to attack them right?

You know they don't believe any of the shiat they say, they are just using religion as a cover to try an piss people off into stopping them from protesting by any means so they can get them into court and collect cash right?

Mock26: Phelps and his scumbag family were only exercising their First Amendment Right when they protested the funerals of soldiers who were killed in action.  It is only fitting that other Americans exercise that same right and protest his funeral.

Also, is this Nathan Phelps a real account?  I mean, his picture is of a troll.  Can we really take the post seriously?

I don't believe in rejoicing someone's death, but this shiatstain makes it hard to keep to that. I certainly believe the world will be a better place without the hate he has spewed for so long.
 
2014-03-16 12:52:20 PM  
Kicked out of his own church, and on his death bed with no one saying what he's dying of (old age, etc.).
My money is on HIV.

I think people should turn this pending occurrence into an opportunity to do some good, and make a donation in Phelp's name to charity he would probably not approve of.
 
2014-03-16 12:53:58 PM  
I hope 50,000 people show up to protest that waste of DNA.
 
2014-03-16 12:54:02 PM  

AspectRatio: 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.

Yup. This is how to do it.


In this case, I disagree. Every card, every expression of condolences, every flower - all of it will be seen as vindication of their beliefs and actions. Instead of feeling the pain they inflicted on others and reflecting, they will be emboldened by the "support" they receive.

Don't send mixed messages, they won't take from it what you think. Send them a clear message that they and their positions are reviled, and it hurts to have someone protest a funeral.

MBK: They should host a big gay pride parade on the day of his funeral.


Oh, the irony. I love it :)

I certainly wouldn't attend any pride event at his funeral though. Anything like that would just give him and his organization more attention than it deserves.

Raking in the cash by protesting funerals (military or otherwise) just to sue the people who get mad and lash back makes them parasites and ambulance chasers by preying on people at their weakest and most vulnerable moments. (Apologies to any actual parasites and ambulances offended by this.)

The fact that they hide this behaviour behind Christian values is a disgusting abuse of any faith. I'm not even a religious man and I find this outright lie to be beneath human.

Not even crickets should stoop to highlighting the silence this piece of filth deserves at his passing.

/totally down with the 'God hates bigots' theme though
 
2014-03-16 01:02:26 PM  
I'm thinking road trip!!! We should all go not only to protest his funeral but find their home addresses and protest outside their homes on public property of course. Isn't there a neighbor to the "church" that hates them? Didn't he paint his house rainbow flag? I'm sure he'd LOVE to have us protest on his property.

Since they love to hate so much let's show them what real hate looks like!
 
2014-03-16 01:03:07 PM  
While everybody's cursing him to hellfire, I for one wish he tells God he's sorry before he croaks.
 
2014-03-16 01:03:33 PM  
If there really is a hell, I envision it the way it's shown in Scrooge (the musical version with Albert Finney), with Jacob Marley showing him to his frozen home in hell.

This asshole should have to be the drum major of a gay pride parade that never ends.

"-they bein' partickler friends o' the diseased.  That's why they're invited here this evenin'; but tomorrow we want  all to come-everybody; for he respected everybody, he liked everybody, and so it's fitten that his funeral orgies sh'd be public."

...

"I say orgies, not because it's the common term, because it ain't-obsequies bein' the common term-but because orgies is the right term. Obsequies ain't used in England no more now-it's gone out.  We say orgies now in England.  Orgies is better, because it means the thing you're after more exact.  It's a word that's made up out'n the Greek  orgo, outside, open, abroad; and the Hebrew  jeesum, to plant, cover up; hence inter.  So, you see, funeral orgies is an open er public funeral."
 
2014-03-16 01:15:58 PM  
Old Fred's just an unscrupulous lawyer looking to make a buck. In doing that, he created a pack of "true believers" that then kicked him out for not being horrible enough. My guess.

nekom: markie_farkie: nekom: His funeral is going to look like burning man

Actually the best funeral would have ZERO attendees, with the family choosing to have his corpse tossed in an unmarked ditch somewhere.

Though I've always held that the best thing is to never feed the trolls, i.e. ignore those asshats, it would seem pretty fitting and proper to me for an impromptu pride parade to break out at his funeral.  If for no other reason than the lulz that could be generated.  He's beyond "doesn't deserve any respect whatsoever" and well into the "deserves contempt, malice and shame" column.


The best method is counter trolling so viciously that they run for the hills and never return.  "Not Feeding" is providing positive stimulus to the individual seeking attention.  You must educate them that the attention they will be receiving is not the type of attention they'll enjoy.  Almost all crumble, given time, as the new generation of 'trolls' are just sacks of idiocy from 4chan/Reddit who think they invented trolling.

In the case of Phelps, Papparazzi level interaction on a daily basis by a crowd.  Non-stop.  Everywhere.

Anyone know which hospital/care facility he's in? I would like to mock him as he dies.
 
2014-03-16 01:17:29 PM  

Ringshadow: 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.

And I'll put down $2 more on "gay sex scandal."

WHY?  Just so people can forget an unpleasant but very important lesson?  The answer to everything we don't like isn't "just ignore it and it will fade from history".

Phelps and his bunch are just obnoxious.  They have no clue.

Interesting note:  He's a registered Democrat.

There is another...

and another...and twelve more behind them...

It is the condition of the world that shiatstains will always be among us.  So, while it is graceful to not wish ill upon one, if you do happen to guiltyly enjoy his suffering, be comforted to know there will be another along in a minute to take his place.

MayoSlather: He's about to see how god feels about bigots...or how imaginary people feel about nothing.


That for me is the biggest drawback to being an atheist (or to be more precise, someone who doesn't believe in life after death): if you're right, you'll never find out.

Reality and perception.  There are many who, while not supporting his methods, support his message.  If you want to change the message, have a huge protest funeral turnout that will only further the belief that those who actually support his message that they are right.  It will give them what they think of a legitimacy and continue the never-ending cycle.  If you want to break the cycle, don't give them anything that they can use to further their cause.  The reality is they'll continue to look like idiots, but they'll become really annoying idiots that will add further tension to an already divided nation.  All I'm suggesting is that the biggest insult you can give to an obvious attention whores like them is to not give them any attention.  In return we get some much needed peace and quiet and maybe a lowering of some of the divisions in this country.  In addition, this guy will become a forgotten figure.  Instead of saying, "That bigot Fred Phelps" the next generation will say, "Fred who?  Never heard of him."
And that will be biggest insult that you could possibly deliver to those who legitimately believe in his message.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: He can finally come out of the closet now


Maybe that's why he was excommunicated.
 
2014-03-16 01:22:23 PM  
I actually don't want Phelps to die. Not yet. I want him to suffer a long time, to linger in pain and misery, to writhe in paroxysms of agony for all the assholiness he caused here on earth. And then, if there is such a place, I want whatever black, charred, rancid husk of a soul he has to spend the rest of eternity and into the next incarnation of the universe in the lowest and most foul pit of hell that can exist.

Or, he can just be reincarnated as a flamboyantly gay male in flyover country.

I wonder if the church will survive him.  I'm thinking there's got to be some amount of members who are thinking "Man, I need an 'out' from this colossal bullshiat waste-of-time.  And the old man kicking might be the very thing!"

I'm not at all certain that makes him a better person than the common perception of him.
 
2014-03-16 01:25:47 PM  
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, Mr. Phelps, is to die a horrible, painful death. Though even if you don't accept it, you'll die a lonely death. You will self-destruct in 5, 4, ...

Phelps' death should not be cause for protest, nor celebration, but mourning. For the gay community has lost one of their staunchest allies in the fight for equal rights.
