Ah, the first day of spring! The flowers are blooming, the birds are singing, and the Phelpses are dying. Could anything be more glorious?
2014-03-20 01:14:52 PM  

wumpus: They excommunicated him from the church before he died

Apparently I live under a rock. They what, now?

Phelp's body isn't here, and even if it was, you cant give blowjobs to a corpse over the internet.

Witness99: They're right around the corner from where I work. Might try to get over there on my lunch break and sign something obscene in the guest book.

If you take pictures and post them I will give you money.
2014-03-20 01:15:24 PM  
The sad part is I would REALLY want to be there.   I hope he finds grace, even though he sowed so much chaff!  Life is hard and he apparently took it too far!.
2014-03-20 01:15:29 PM  

Jekylman: Oldiron_79: RIP Fred Flintstone.

Seriously though this is a sad day for those of us into trolling. He was like the Michael Jordan or Muhammad Ali of trolling.

Not really much of a coincidence than that the church booted him out in the last couple of weeks.  Pretty sure they will be protesting his funeral themselves.
2014-03-20 01:15:35 PM  
I've been holding onto this for years.

Good riddance.
2014-03-20 01:15:44 PM  
International Happiness Day indeed.

I feel awful that I am happy about the death of someone, even someone was reprehensible as this man.

//Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth (because Fred's dead now).

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

Old people are just... the worst.

Have gay sex on Phelps's grave?  After all the dumps that have been taken there?
2014-03-20 01:16:11 PM  
First, good.

Second, condolences to his family.
2014-03-20 01:16:12 PM  
2014-03-20 01:16:30 PM  

orezona: So in cheering this man's death...

...does that mean we have become part of the WBC?

It means that ol' Fred and his family are reaping what they've sown. Fark em all and I hope they all rot in whatever they imagine hell to be.
2014-03-20 01:16:37 PM  
they should hold a gay wedding at the funeral.

//disapproves of gay marriage but hates WBBC more
2014-03-20 01:16:49 PM  
I find it extremely depressing that he died of natural causes. In a just world, some unhinged psycho would have murdered him and his whole filthy brood.
2014-03-20 01:16:51 PM  

gilgigamesh: OccamsWhiskers: Death is not something to celebrate

[ image 500x375]

The City of New Orleans begs to differ.

--"Whose funeral is it?"
2014-03-20 01:17:03 PM  

arbitterm: Well sorry but I'm not sorry. I was happy when bin Laden died and I'm happy that Phelps is dead.

Now that you mention it, I was happy that day too... and I remember all the Fark Independents (TM) here saying how horrible it was to be happy that someone is dead.

Someone who they cheerleaded the manhunt for, for seven years... until the blah guy took over.
2014-03-20 01:17:10 PM  

mbillips: Heliovdrake: They make a living out of protests and people who try to stop them... You can look it up.

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

It sounds a myth perpetuated by christians who refuse to accept Fred is one of them.

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?
2014-03-20 01:17:17 PM  
Outside of the Westboro Baptist Church, Phelps' followers were reported as confused and unsure what to picket next...
2014-03-20 01:17:24 PM  
What his grave site will look like for the foreseeable future.

HAHAHAHAHAH.  This is the best pic/meme of the thread.
2014-03-20 01:17:26 PM  
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.
2014-03-20 01:17:26 PM  
Just wanna be a part of this epic post, and I'm not gonna say anything bad about...

Class act, that Uncle George. And, clearly, the bigger man.

al gore inconsolable.
2014-03-20 01:17:53 PM

But seriously, the cruelest reaction we could have would be to ignore these jackoffs.

They thrive on attention, and even the slightest fuel for their persecution fantasy would just be bliss for them.
2014-03-20 01:17:57 PM  

lssmithiii: 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 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.
2014-03-20 01:17:57 PM  
While I will try not to celebrate the death of another human, I certainly will celebrate the death of that human's hate.

I think I can speak for most of us here when I say if celebrating the death of a scumbag is wrong, I don't want to be right.
2014-03-20 01:18:11 PM  

Mateorocks: I sure hope someone protests his funeral.

Spring really is here.
2014-03-20 01:18:17 PM  

red230: I'm calling it now. The Westboro Baptist Church is going to protest his funeral.

They actually excommunicated him the other day, so it wouldn't surprise me.
2014-03-20 01:18:20 PM  

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

You know they're gonna have to hide his grave. Otherwise, the thing would be constantly soggy, no grass would grow, and it would smell like the dumpster in the alley. I don't know that a cemetery would accept his remains because of the crowd of people who would make this voyage.

Eddie Murphy in a white suit.

Farking good.  Rot in hell you useless piece of subhuman filth.
2014-03-20 01:18:47 PM  
Bury him where he deserves to be.
2014-03-20 01:18:50 PM  

drew46n2: had to fix this. What a disgusting display of humanity in here.

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.
2014-03-20 01:18:59 PM  

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.
