JerseyTim: Wouldn't it be ironic of the Westboro Baptist Church protested his funeral?
FlyingBacon: Wow. So much hate going on. Keep it classic farkers.
hardinparamedic: Serious Black: I'd love to know what Fred did to get excommunicated from Westboro.
Recoil Therapy: They could probably solve California's drought if there was a piss tube installed over Fred's grave
Serious Black: I'd love to know what Fred did to get excommunicated from Westboro.
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.
RIP Fred Phelps
jbc: I'd normally disagree out of respect to the family, but since they are equally reprehensible excuses for mammals, I think some "God Hates Bigots" pickets are in order here.
reubendaley: HE'S GETTING AWAY!!!!

FlyingBacon: Oh yea right. My sarcasm really failed this morning. Thats ok with me.
Millennium: On the one hand, it's good to have people like him to put our commitment to freedom of speech and religion to the test. Even if that's the only value his life provides.On the other hand, man, what I wouldn't give to be one of the people who has to sort out his stuff post-mortem. What kinds of things do you think would be found?!
symptomoftheuniverse: Meh. Now when Cheney bites it, that will be cause to party.
Oldiron_79: Tis but a flesh wound, he's had worse.
Millennium: Ghastly: Pascal's wager is possibly the stupidest reason to believe in a religion. It would be one thing if there was only one religion in the world but there are hundreds. What if there is a god, but you're devoutly worshipping the wrong one and just pissing him off more and more each time you go to church.It's worth noting that Pascal formulated his wager in an intellectual context where there really was only one religion under consideration (with a few different sects, perhaps, but they generally acknowledged one another as worshipping the same God). Nowadays the Tumblr crowd would have a field day with that, but such was the time and place he lived.
TheShavingofOccam123: I hope his children enjoy his funeral. I hope it's ringed by squads of paired off, naked LGBTs rutting in joyous celebration.
Ghastly: Earguy: I want to learn more about Fred being "excommunicated" from his own church. Is this true? Why?Probably fell mouth first on a dick.It can happen.
Loucifer: How close to death is he? Cause I should start holding my pee.
SPLAMM: God hates Freds
atomic-age: bindlestiff2600: what would be the going cost for a brass band in that area?to play a medley of show tunes and Queen songs.
Ghastly: Earguy: I want to learn more about Fred being "excommunicated" from his own church. Is this true? Why?Probably fell mouth first on a dick.
grumpfuff: And you doubt heliocentricity, your point?
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
MayoSlather: He's about to see how god feels about bigots...or how imaginary people feel about nothing.
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.
JohnnyC: JohnTuttle: As evil as his actions may have been, he's still a fellow human beingSo your contention is that Phelps is a 'fellow human being'...I'm thinking you and I have different ideas about what 'fellow', 'human', and 'being' mean.
Oldiron_79: symptomoftheuniverse: Meh. Now when Cheney bites it, that will be cause to party.He's more machine now than man.
MBK: They should host a big gay pride parade on the day of his funeral.
poonesfarm: Can his gravesite double as an interstate rest stop toilet?
spman: What if the WBC picketed his funeral?
machoprogrammer: His grave should be a place where gay men can go and have orgies on top of it
C18H27NO3: If the entirety of the WBC were on MH370 instead of the regular passengers would anyone even care what happened to the plane?Thank you for tuning in to the news.Some plane is lost.And now your local forecast.
spongeboob: FlyingBacon: Wow. So much hate going on. Keep it classic farkers.Reap what you sow, don't think Farkers are going to be hating when the Dali Lama dies
Mambo Bananapatch: Benevolent Misanthrope: 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.He won't. He'll go into oblivion like the rest of us, and with his last breath, no matter how painful it might be, he will exhale it secure in the belief that he lived his life as a righteous man, and will shortly be entering the Kingdom of Heaven. Sorry.
"Thou Shalt Not Judge"
But in this dick's case I'm wiling to make an exception.
JesusJuice: mudmin: JesusJuice: 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.That's really dumb.Well the way I always think about it...if I'm wrong, I have nothing to lose by living a good life, trying to treat people right and follow the principles of the Bible. If you're wrong, you have everything to lose. One of us will be wrong and we won't know for sure until it's all sorted out in the end.So I imagine you must follow all the other religions as well. Must be time consuming.
mudmin: Not trolling. Dead serious.I, for one, would like to apologize on behalf of the church for the horrible things done in the name of Christ. I'm sorry for the Crusades and for the Catholic Church selling indulgences to get people out of purgatory, for terrible pastors and priests, for Westboro (and every other church for that matter).For thousands of years people have been doing things in the name of Jesus that don't represent Jesus.As someone who has studied his life, I think Jesus is the kind of guy you'd love if you sat down and had a beer with him. You'd find him frickin awesome. "Normal" people loved him. It was religious people who put him on the cross. He even said 2000 years ago that people were going to do things in his name, but not really be followers...From Matthew 7- 21"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?' 23Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'That's what he thinks of Westboro and all those people.The truth of the matter is that just like we've had to find space in our brains that not all Muslims are terrorists. Some are really nice people who just want to live their lives. Not all Christians are douches who hate the world.Jesus is a pretty cool guy and I wouldn't let some Christians ruin that for you.
AcademGreen: 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 Justin Bieber
AthensBoy: ciberido: AthensBoy: ciberido: AthensBoy: [www.elephantjournal.com image 420x295]Am I doing this right?No. It should have said "The Prophets Hate Jedi."Every time....Trolling Trekkies is no way to go through life, son.Who said it was the Trekkies I was trolling? ;)
mudmin: Survey. Whose death excites (excited) farkers most?1. Phelps2. Bin Laden
Earguy: I want to learn more about Fred being "excommunicated" from his own church. Is this true? Why?
Mart Laar's beard shaver: [1.bp.blogspot.com image 684x452]Goodnight, Jayhawk-man.
Private_Citizen: I hope the devil wears him like a condom while sodomising the gayest demon in Hell.
Tenga: I'll never understand, why do Christians cling to life?
rewind2846: Or, he can just be reincarnated as a flamboyantly gay male in flyover country.
JesusJuice: Anyone know which hospital/care facility he's in? I would like to mock him as he dies.
Tymast: Being excommunicated none of the other family members are allowed to visit him so he is wasting away alone in the hospice.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: He can finally come out of the closet now
perigee: I call for an army of homos, armed with super-soakers and a month worth of saved up semen. Start hoarding ammo now!
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.
Kevin72: Tarl3k: MBK: They should host a big gay pride parade on the day of his funeral.We have a winner...But how many times can you sing "ding dong the witch is dead"?
WippitGuud: FlyingBacon: KeepYou reap what you sow.
mariner314: Good.Now all I need is Pat Robertson to bite it and today would be perfect.
CruJones: I'd prefer him to be terminally ill,and long suffering and the only way he can stay alive is through repeated transfusions from gay donors.
Soulcatcher: Chariset: RTOGUY: He's going to need an unmarked grave or it's going to be shiat on and vandalized for years to come.Safest thing would be to have him cremated and scatter the ashes.Isn't it cute how his wonderful, loving family-slash-church have decided they can do without him? If he's dying now and he was kicked out back in August, they could have given him the boot just as his health started taking a turn for the worse. Who needs that expensive liability, right?On the one hand, I'm scared that Westboro Baptist has apparently become autonomous, but on the other hand I think it'll eventually fall to infighting between the siblings as they try to take over.Scatter the ashes? How about flush the ashes? This guy is one of the worst pieces of shiat on the planet. Fark him.

AcademGreen: Tenga: I'll never understand, why do Christians cling to life?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.
Mad Tea Party: Serious Black: I'd love to know what Fred did to get excommunicated from Westboro.[i23.photobucket.com image 631x128]
nekom: His funeral is going to look like burning man
