Nice one, subby.

That he didn't unfortunately DIAF is probably a saving grace to only those nearby who might ingest the toxic fumes of that loathsome troll.

I will plan an entire vacation around going to piss on this mans grave... I'll post pics when I do.


He spent his entire adult life, hurting people, his family, strangers and such...

It wasnt even religiously motivated most likely.

His entire "family" that is still in the church are lawyers or disbared lawyers.
They make a living out of protests and people who try to stop them... You can look it up.
Try to stop a protest, and they sue. Get angry enough to hit them... you will pay through the nose.

Actually, they make a living through real jobs (some with the state). They don't make nearly enough through litigation to pay for their $200,000+ annual expenditures.

I'm over the point of thinking they're just insanely good litigation trolls. They're just a hateful, evil group of human filth. If anything, the fear of litigation protects them at their protests. But they are not attacked enough to think they pay for everything through litigation.

He was a tormented soul, who tormented so many. Hate never wins out in the end. It instead goes always to its lonely, dusty end."

I hope some idiots don't stage some sort of troll protest of his funeral.

Every funeral deserves to be a somber occasion for the loved ones of the departed to reflect and say goodbye to that person in their own way. Just because this family doesn't understand this doesn't mean inflicting such suffering on them will make them suddenly realize how sick it is. We're better than that.

No, they don't. This is a canard that comes up in every WBC thread, and it's simply not correct. The cases they've brought that have resulted in damages are nowhere near what they claim tho spend.

Interesting research on it here:  http://stanfordreview.org/article/countdown-to-westboro-baptist-churc h -at-stanford-the-law-and-wbc/

I looked this up, and couldn't find a single case they'd actually won. I think this is an urban legend.

For those who didn't like the message or the tactics, Phelps and his family had only disdain. "They need to drink a frosty mug of shut-the-hell-up and avert their eyes," his daughter, Shirley Phelps-Roper, once told a group of Kansas lawmakers

You weakened the first amendment for fun and profit. This I do not forgive.

RIP FRED'S STOLEN FRANKS TRAILER

 
2014-03-20 12:57:13 PM  

phenn: Felgraf: I'm gonna try to take Takei's stance on this, which was:

"I take no solace or joy in this man's passing. We will not dance upon his grave, nor stand vigil at his funeral holding 'God Hates Freds' signs, tempting as it may be.
He was a tormented soul, who tormented so many. Hate never wins out in the end. It instead goes always to its lonely, dusty end."

I'm going to make the same effort, though this thread should be mighty entertaining. So, I'll hang out a while.


Oh,aye. I'm feeling a twinge or two of schaudenfreud, but I always try my hardest not to hate, since.. I dunno. It seems a poison.

BUT, that's also *REALLY EASY* for me to say, because as a straight middle class white boy, who was never once a target of their ire, nor ever directly affected by those who held simillar beliefs.

So it may be too easy for me to 'take the high road', as it were. Makes me wonder how I'd feel were I, say, Takei, whose grace (and who had to hide his own sexuality for so long!) is much more impressive.

- Captain Stern's lawyer

They're going to need a septic system wherever they put him in the ground for all the bodily waste his grave is going to collect. Wouldn't mind contributing a loaf or two myself.
They're probably going to cremate his racist homophobic ass to avoid this.

I wonder why they won't release the reasoning as to why he was sick or in the hospice....

my guess with all the hatred he had for gay people is this:

he contracted aids thru intercourse with another man. Which took his life. Very fitting in July opinion if true. Only if we can get the rest of his congregation to go the same way.

It doesn't seem very tragic for anyone to live to 84, and obviously this guy was a huge asshole. But "he started it" won't retain any moral authority you may think you had about the horrible things he did.

Death is not something to celebrate and harassing people or showing disrespect is not honorable.

I must respectfully disagree. This man made it his life's work to hurt other people. By exploiting "loopholes" in our society we were not able to stop him despite a very broad consensus that he should stop. Now, we are free of him and his hateful acts and that IS something I will gladly celebrate.

But I also agree there is no reason to stoop to his level.

I don't know. 84 is a pretty good run, especially for such a hateful, angry person. Ghandi was killed as 78. Probably says something about the afterlife.

However, if ever there is a reason to celebrate a death, this one ranks near the top.

Yeah, I'm going to take lots of solace and joy in it.  He did torment many, I'm happy his days of tormenting people are over.  We don't have to hate him back but I'm not going to feel bad that I'm happy he's done being able to hate.  That guy picketed funerals of dead soldiers for fark's sake.  Yeah, I'm happy he can't do that anymore.

It wasnt even religiously motivated most likely.

His entire "family" that is still in the church are lawyers or disbared lawyers.
They make a living out of protests and people who try to stop them... You can look it up.
Try to stop a protest, and they sue. Get angry enough to hit them... you will pay through the nose.


Not true!

Fred was once a civil rights lawyer. It wasn't until the mid-1970s that something happened to change the man.

I'd say let's not protest his funeral, not to show respect...fark that. But to show that to any person with more than 2 working brain cells, he was a meaningless human being with a meaningless existence and he will rot in the ground forgotten and shunned like his message of farked up beliefs.

Ah yes, and now my facebook is lighting up with the jackasses who put on a their polite public face, saying shiat like "I hope he finds peace...", and "what a shame that someone lost their father" and "it is sad he didn't learn the error of his ways".

fark those people, too. There were soldiers who died who were fathers, sons, brothers, mothers, daughters, and this goddamn cancer didn't give a fark about any of that. When you get rid of a cancer in your body, you shouldn't have to put up with people giving you bullshiat lines like "aw, that's a shame, why couldn't you two find a way to live with each other peacefuly?". fark that.

Well, as I said upon further reflection:  It may be *FAR TOO* easy for me to take the high road, as someone who was never directly targeted by the hateful bile he spewed.

And I certainly do not begrudge those that celebrate! I can absolutely understand it.  Especially those whose families his ilk tormented, or who were the objects of his attacks and hatred (For example, any non-hetrosexual or non-cisgendered person)

Sometimes I wonder, though, what it must have been like for him to go through life with that much hate bottled up inside him. I try to imagine it, and I just *recoil*.

There's not going to be a funeral to protest.

Have any of you seen the Loius Theroux docs "The Most Hated Family In America", and "The Most Hated Family In America: In Crisis"? They are both available in their entirety on YouTube. They really do a good job of letting the Phelps explain their psychosis  beliefs.

The good news is they are probably going to implode sooner than later. If Shirley is on the outs with them, as was suggested by Nathan, I think , she's going to take a few of them with her. Shirley seems to be their hardest worker and has been running things ever since Fred started losing his mind and his ability to manage the day to day stuff in the early 2000's.

I hope more people like Megan, Grace, Nathan, Libby, and Lauren leave the farkers. Those folks have really shown it's possible to change and to love instead of hate.

Grungehamster: I hope some idiots don't stage some sort of troll protest of his funeral.

Every funeral deserves to be a somber occasion for the loved ones of the departed to reflect and say goodbye to that person in their own way. Just because this family doesn't understand this doesn't mean inflicting such suffering on them will make them suddenly realize how sick it is. We're better than that.


The whole "I want to be the bigger person" stuff is for the weak.  I have no desire to be the bigger man or to be "better than that".  I hope people do protest his funeral.

What an awful, sad, disgusting little tale.  A man so filled with hate that he built his entire community around vitriol to pretty much everyone.  Who thought the best way to express his views was to pour bile on people at their most hurt and vulnerable. Who prepared so thoroughly a legacy of shunning and hatred that his own family and the church he founded excommunicated him when he softened by the fraction of an inch it took to suggest that perhaps his parishioners not be total dicks to each other, just everybody else.

He died having been rejected from the only community he valued, with several children having abandoned him, in a hospice.

I have no love for Fred Phelps, and I hope that, for even just a second before he passed, that he realized the enormity of his assholery.  It's one thing to be a hateful fark yourself, but to teach it to your children and to build a whole community around it, that's just sick.  I hope he felt a pang for every person he hurt, for every decent human being he insulted, and for every soldier who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country that he dared to use as a political tool.

If there is any justice in this universe, he's getting shown the error of his ways right now, and he will understand why he will rightfully be forgotten, consigned to at best a footnote in human history.

There were three morticians trading stories in a bar one night.

The first one says, "What a day I had today. The guy wasn't wearing his seat belt and his head flew into the windshield. Took me all day to make the face look natural."

Not to be outdone, the second mortician says, "You think that's bad?   I had this guy in who got hit by a train while he was riding his bike. Took me TWO days to put all the pieces back together!"

The third mortician just shook his head. "You guys have it easy," he said. "I had Fred Phelps in my place. Seems like the head nurse at the Hospice was one angry gay man. He raped Fred multiple times the night before he died. Took me all week just to wipe the smile off his face!"

I feel about this man's death the same way I feel about an enormous pimple bursting.  It was there for a while, and it hurt like hell to have it around.  It was utterly disgusting and unhealthy and full of filth.  Then there's the moment that you really can't be happy about - in the pimple's case, the moment it pops.  In Fred's the moment he died - and then relief.

Relief because there's some remnant of it remaining, and it still kinda hurts if you press on it, but you know it's going to start healing now.

I'd suggest that we celebrate the good that he did.  No, seriously.  He may not have intended it, but the backlash against WBC's insanity has probably done more to boost support for gay rights than any other single group.  People see the WBC, see the mentality homophobes have, and realize they want nothing to do with it.  So thank you, Fred Phelps.  Your absolute batshiattery and loathsomeness brought rational people everywhere closer together to fight for equal rights.

He was a tormented soul, who tormented so many. Hate never wins out in the end. It instead goes always to its lonely, dusty end."

I couldn't have said it better myself. Nonetheless, I'm really not going to get along with anyone that enjoys the deaths of our troops.


What about all the other people whose deaths this asshat celebrated? This asshole picketed the funerals of gay men and women for years, but nobody gave a rat's ass until they started picketing soldier's funerals. It's always pissed me off that nobody seems to give a damn about all the other families whose suffering they made worse.

You seem more outraged over people's responses to a hateful man than a man who spent his life pushing hate and misery and intentionally going after people when they were at their most emotionally vulerable to goad them into attacking so he can sue them.

Grungehamster: I hope some idiots don't stage some sort of troll protest of his funeral.

Every funeral deserves to be a somber occasion for the loved ones of the departed to reflect and say goodbye to that person in their own way. Just because this family doesn't understand this doesn't mean inflicting such suffering on them will make them suddenly realize how sick it is. We're better than that.


Fark that....I hope a hundred thousand people show up with signs so that the family might finally understand how it feels.  Call me crazy.

Fred was a disgusting display of humanity. He deserves scorn and nothing more.


Do we punish the families of other cult leaders? Do we torment them? Or should we recognize instead that they too are victims?


They are victims of HIS hatred. He's dead now. I don't celebrate their grief (for the ones that have it), but I do celebrate him not being able to spew his hate anymore.

madgonad: Heliovdrake: I will plan an entire vacation around going to piss on this mans grave... I'll post pics when I do.


He spent his entire adult life, hurting people, his family, strangers and such...

It wasnt even religiously motivated most likely.

His entire "family" that is still in the church are lawyers or disbared lawyers.
They make a living out of protests and people who try to stop them... You can look it up.
Try to stop a protest, and they sue. Get angry enough to hit them... you will pay through the nose.

Not true!

Fred was once a civil rights lawyer. It wasn't until the mid-1970s that something happened to change the man.

Fred Phelps comes rides the escalator to heaven and steps of to the entrance area in front of the pearly gates.

Fred: I was right!
St. Peter: Come on in my son.
Fred: I told you so! God hates everyone except for me and my believers!
Fred steps forward only to have the gates slam shut.
St. Peter: Just farkin' with ya.
Fred: What?!?!
St. Peter: You think you're getting in here you hate spewing asshole? Uhhh, nope.
Fred: But, but!
St. Peter: Look we're all aboutforgiveness around here, but you crossed the line and went lightyears beyond it. I don't know what Bible you were reading to think what you did, but you're the last person getting into heaven.
St. Peter picks up his phone and dials.
St. Peter: Lucifer? Yeah, it's Pete: Fred's here and I just finishing messing with him. I know you guys have been working up a bunch of new stuff, so are you ready? *pause* Okay, I'll send him down the express elevator. (hangs up)
St. Peter to Fred: Whoa boy, you are sooooo screwed. I was CC'ed on the torture order forms and know what they've been working on down in Hell just for you.
The doors to the express elevator to Hell open up, with the Village People's "Macho Man" playing inside.

In a just world, people like him wouldn't exist. But it's good he died on his own, because if he had been murdered he would more than likely been seen as a martyr.

Even though the church leaders kicked him out, he still had the potential to be revered as a holy person by his twisted cult, if someone actually took him out.

So, WBC picketed soldier's funerals because they died fighting for a country that was tolerant of gay people.

Did Fred ever pay taxes? Wouldn't that money go toward the tolerant country too? So, wasn't he funding gay tolerance?

Not saying it makes sense, just would love to hear WBC response.

Even in death Fred succeed with one last troll, and there's plenty of takers. For myself, I would quote the Bard of Avon:

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones;
So let it be with Caesar. The noble Brutus
Hath told you Caesar was ambitious:
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And grievously hath Caesar answer'd it.
Here, under leave of Brutus and the rest--
For Brutus is an honourable man;
So are they all, all honourable men--
Come I to speak in Caesar's funeral.
He was my friend, faithful and just to me:
But Brutus says he was ambitious;
And Brutus is an honourable man.
He hath brought many captives home to Rome
Whose ransoms did the general coffers fill:
Did this in Caesar seem ambitious?
When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept:
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff:
Yet Brutus says he was ambitious;
And Brutus is an honourable man.
You all did see that on the Lupercal
I thrice presented him a kingly crown,
Which he did thrice refuse: was this ambition?
Yet Brutus says he was ambitious;
And, sure, he is an honourable man.
I speak not to disprove what Brutus spoke,
But here I am to speak what I do know.
You all did love him once, not without cause:
What cause withholds you then, to mourn for him?
O judgment! thou art fled to brutish beasts,
And men have lost their reason. Bear with me;
My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar,
And I must pause till it come back to me.

Fred Phelps is dead and gay rights move forward.

And that will be his true legacy.  A completely irrelevant dickwagon who accomplished absolutely nothing in life and will be forgotten by week's end.

I will never for the life of me understand what breeds so much hate.  How can so much hate fester over something as utterly irrelevant as what other people do with their genitals?


Way back he was actually a civil rights activist lawyer for African-American clients.
So there's that.

He managed to get disbarred in Kansas. Called a hostile witness a slut in court (and more), was decided to be a personal vendetta
And that.

We know the rest.

Or that his God would sit him down, and give him one hell of a talking to about all the bullshiat and pain he caused in His name.  That would really be something. "Mr/ Phelps, God will see you now." He's excited, thrilled - he's meeting God. And God just tears him a new one for being a miserable, worthless prick who caused senseless hurt to so many people and blasphemed God's name.

I've always categorized him as one of the most hateful people, someone who represents the worst of humanity. The strange thing is, once my son came out as gay, the Phelps clan ugliness somehow slipped off my radar. Their brand of media driven hate just seemed silly and pointless and went largely unnoticed by me over the past several years. Awhile back, I think I might have felt something upon hearing this news, but reading it today, I don't feel anything but complete indifference.

I couldn't have said it better myself. Nonetheless, I'm really not going to get along with anyone that enjoys the deaths of our troops.

What about all the other people whose deaths this asshat celebrated? This asshole picketed the funerals of gay men and women for years, but nobody gave a rat's ass until they started picketing soldier's funerals. It's always pissed me off that nobody seems to give a damn about all the other families whose suffering they made worse.


Perhaps a disclaimer was in order. I could've easily list all the groups, (including but not limited to) the LGBT population, women, etc. I thought that quoting an openly gay man's thoughtful words implied a sort of deference. And people did care, by the way. They still do.

I have been thinking something similar for the last few days. As tempting as it is for many of the people who understandably despise him and everything he stood for, to imitate the WBC tactics would show that their mission to debase our civil society by spreading hatred has succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.

On the flip side, open displays of compassion toward Phelps or the WBC risk being seen as supportive of their views, even if they are only intended to show the family the type of compassion that they so regularly and purposefully denied to others.

So I think that the best course of action is to just ignore the situation altogether. After all, the WBC craves attention over everything else.

I get the mass gatherings, the vigils, and all that... but the news was highlighting idiots who seemed to just need a reason to get drunk and act like assholes and didn't seem to really care we had just dealt with the guy who pretty much destroyed America.

I'm just having a hard time caring. The behavior of WBC is outrageous, but just like shock jocks, they went to the well too often, and simply aren't *interesting* any longer.

I feel that my lack of concern when it comes to the whole group underlines the futility of their actions more than any rage I could muster

Think of your fellow man
lend him a helping hand
put a little love in your heart.
You see it's getting late
oh please don't hesitate
put a little love in your heart.
And the world will be a better place
and the world will be a better place
for you and me
you just wait and see

Another day goes by
and still the children cry
put a little love in your heart.
If you want the world to know
we won't let hatred grow
put a little love in your heart.
And the world will be a better place
and the world will be a better place
for you and me
you just wait and see

Take a good look around and
if you're lookin' down
put a little love in your heart
I hope when you decide
kindness will be your guide
put a little love in your heart.
And the world will be a better place
and the world will be a better place
for you and me
you just wait and see

bluorangefyre: Meanwhile, Fred probably got a really big shock as St. Peter explained that HE'D be the one burning in Hell for all of eternity.


If any of that stuff is real, he failed at Christianity and failed HARD.  He might have been better at Judiasm, where that old Jewish law is actually a thing, but if you pick up a red letter bible you won't see Jesus speaking of homosexuality at all.  Funny, because if the myth is to be believed, God sent his only son to save mankind, yet he failed to instruct him to harp on the whole no homo thing that offends him so.

/also if God hates gays, why does he keep making them?
//and why does he not smite them?

Thing is, when my grandfather, one of the most bigoted and hate-filled men I've ever had the misfortune of meeting died, none of us were torn up about it. I've never seen so many feel so  little at the passing of a human life. As sad as it may sound, some people just aren't worth the grief.

Fred was a disgusting display of humanity. He deserves scorn and nothing more.


Do we punish the families of other cult leaders? Do we torment them? Or should we recognize instead that they too are victims?

I guess there is no one out there too evil and hateful that someone won't white knight for them.


I've not defended him, merely called-out the droves of blithering hypocrites doing the same thing now that they're supposedly mad at Phelps for doing.

Umm congratulations? You are now better than everyone else. Which coincidentally, is exactly how Phelps felt about himself.

I don't feel it's hypocritical to be relieved that a man who did nothing but spewed hatred everywhere is unable to spew hatred now.

Fiction Fan: I usually don't believe in anything like a Hell.
But, if I *were* to believe in one, Fred is there.


I'd prefer to believe that Fred is in a custom-built Hell. Not one with fire and brimstone and rabid dogs, but more like the Castro: scantily-clad queens running amok through the hallways, yelling, "Bring it, sister!" and, "Oh no you di'int!" while waving huge rainbow flags and doing the YMCA on full repeat. And the entire place smells like a santorum smoothie, and everyone in the bathroom has a wide stance. And Fred is only allowed to wear leather S&M garb for eternity while the sisters rub up against him in the most carnal of ways.

Yes, that's his Hell, and I hope he's there. Even God would have a hand in making that carnival.

Last Man on Earth: I'd suggest that we celebrate the good that he did.  No, seriously.  He may not have intended it, but the backlash against WBC's insanity has probably done more to boost support for gay rights than any other single group.  People see the WBC, see the mentality homophobes have, and realize they want nothing to do with it.  So thank you, Fred Phelps.  Your absolute batshiattery and loathsomeness brought rational people everywhere closer together to fight for equal rights.


I agree. I know several people, including family members, who used to be very anti-gay until Phelps and team amped up their douchebaggery. Seeing the crazy on team WBC and after giving homosexuality the slightest amount of thought outside of "gross", they changed their minds on the matter.

RIP Fred Phelps - America's most effective gay rights activist!

He was? I had no idea. What the hell happened that made him take a 180-degree turn, and to do so in such a public and irrational fashion? Hating gays so much he protested the funerals of soldiers who were not gay, or children who were killed/died?  How does someone even come up with that?  Go protest a gay pride parade if you feel you must but really, why would anyone care that much to protest something that doesn't affect them, and do so at venues completely unrelated to what he was protesting?

That always confused me.

People who hate Fred hate him for what he does and how he hurt so many grieving people.

I doubt there will be one.  he was disowned from his family.  who knows what the hell it takes for that to happen, it wasn't like there was some public statement from him recanting his life. my guess is that his ashes will just get dumped somewhere.  I disreputable crematorium operator could make a pretty penny by switching the ashes before handing them over...

I like that this happened on the first day of spring.  The snow in my yard is mostly gone and I'm planning on finding all the bleached, dessicated dog turds that were hidden and throw them into the trash, kind of like what the world did to that other rotted pile of fecal waste.

While the weather may still be cold this, the first day of spring, the world is nonetheless slightly less unpleasant. When your life's work it to actively promote hate, don't be surprised when your family kicks you out of the church you started and you die nearly universally despised by the millions of people acquainted with your name.
 
2014-03-20 01:41:11 PM  

Cybernetic: Felgraf: I'm gonna try to take Takei's stance on this, which was:

"I take no solace or joy in this man's passing. We will not dance upon his grave, nor stand vigil at his funeral holding 'God Hates Freds' signs, tempting as it may be.
He was a tormented soul, who tormented so many. Hate never wins out in the end. It instead goes always to its lonely, dusty end."

That was very well said


Well, I think protesting his funeral would absolutely be stooping to his level, and while I'm not taking JOY in the fact that he's dead, I certainly don't think the world is any worse off, or that there is anything remotely to be sad about. Hopefully his death leads to a weakening and eventual disbanding of his "church" of pure hate.

One is hating others and celebrating their deaths due only to their sexuality, religious preference, or the fact that they served in the military, etc., regardless of what kind of person they were or how many lives they touched for the better.

The other is hating someone and celebrating his death because he was a horrible person who used his life to inflict as much pain and suffering onto others as he possibly could.

Not even remotely the same thing.

Hitting a home run after missing 800 times does not automaticaaly put you on the same expert level as the guy who got home runs on all 801 pitches.

In other words, it is dishonest to think celebrating his death in any farking way equates a person to what Fred did in his life. This is not a 'Both sides are bad' issue.

You don't want to celebrate. That's perfectly fine and (sincerely) good on you. But don't think that you are as bad as him if you did celebrate.

That's because Cheney can't die. He's a monster wearing a remarkable looking human suit. When this age of the earth passes into the dust of time, he will still be here, roaming the wasted landscape, scouring for the next life to assume, waiting for the next intelligence to rise and command the planet. He is a monster that thrives on the innocence of others, the breaths of infants that are taken too soon sustain him. Every culture, living and dead, has known a Cheney. He lurks in the shadows, unassuming and unsuspected, until such time as the monster can take a new host and reveal himself.
