Tenga: I'll never understand, why do Christians cling to life?
Serious Black: I'd love to know what Fred did to get excommunicated from Westboro.
rewind2846: Or, he can just be reincarnated as a flamboyantly gay male in flyover country.
mudmin: 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.True Christians don't fear death and do embrace it...but not as a reward for a virtuous life (that would be based on works)...but as a reward for coming to grips that as humans they are utterly without virtue and accepting Christ and allowing him to become their virtue.
Tillmaster: MaudlinMutantMollusk: He can finally come out of the closet nowMaybe that's why he was excommunicated.
Skunkwolf: 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.[i1.ytimg.com image 850x478][www.stardestroyer.net image 640x321]Always bugged me how they produced and distributed energy in the age of fusion and warp reactors.

reveal101: The most appropriate response to this man's death is not a protest but a party. A giant, loud, obnoxious celebration that drowns out the cries of the family mourning this piece of shiat as they tried to drown out the cries of the mourners of the countless families they protested.
RIP Fred Phelps
iron de havilland: It's just a shame that so many people who call themselves Christians ignore the teachings of Christ.
Benevolent Misanthrope: I hope this shiatstain dies alone, afraid, and in unimaginable agony while the people he created to be hateful farks like himself ignore him, having excommunicated him already. I hope he gets to his Heaven and his god says, "I know thee not." I hope he is cast into eternal torment, as his religion says those who do such things will be.I think the appropriate response is for the Gay Men's Chorus of Topeka to appear at the funeral and sing hymns. Ignore the bile and the hatred and the screaming relatives. Be respectful, be polite, and give your Fark You to Phelps through being better than that.

stonelotus: lol, this thread reminds me of when people say, "I'm not racist, but...".
scottydoesntknow: It's nice to have some good news after losing Newman
Camus' Ghost: Sounds like a good time to play some Slayer.
Private_Citizen: I hope the devil wears him like a condom while sodomising the gayest demon in Hell.
AthensBoy: [www.elephantjournal.com image 420x295]Am I doing this right?
FormlessOne: 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.

Act with a little compassion and don't mock their pain.
Miss Alexandra: Phelps and his bunch are just obnoxious. They have no clue.Interesting note: He's a registered Democrat./doesn't like d OR r
Whar'sMuhWhiskey: [www.nndb.com image 229x300]RIP Fred Phelps
grumpfuff: And you doubt heliocentricity, your point?
I disagreed with his politics, his religious stance and his tactics. But what I didn't like the most was his family was basically destroyed by him. I know what it's like to have an entire extended family held prisoner by a religious rigid autocrat. When he passed at 95, the whole family scattered to the winds, some couldn't put enough geography between.
Now the farm land was sold, warehouses stand there, all the houses torn down.
iron de havilland: 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./Atheist.
Mart Laar's beard shaver: [1.bp.blogspot.com image 684x452]Goodnight, Jayhawk-man.
Aquapope: Personally, I hope there's a stupendously gay dude working at that hospice and he brings his boyfriend into work late one night and the have horrifically crazy butt-sex above him with santorum dripping down all over face. Then they lick it off and kiss it into his mouth.That seems a little excessive, even for a professional hatemonger like Fred Phelps.WeenerGord: Good riddance to bad rubbish. This is what the scumbag did to his own sons...Warning, it may make you sick to read it. Why didn't this scumbag go to jail for what he did!
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.
