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 was a disgusting example of a human being, so fellow human beings reveling in the news of his death is a sign that humanity is not completely corrupt. Yet.

I hope there is a heaven and hell, and I hope that God and Jesus are waiting at the gates to cock punch Fred Phelps with all their holy might straight to hell.

Yep. I have a policy of not speaking ill of the dead close to their death. Today, Phelps finally did something nice for the world.

A play

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 about
forgiveness 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.
St. Peter: See ya Fred, and watch your corn hole.

JesusJuice: 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.


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.

/it doesn't have to be the guestbook, but it must be obvious that you trolled his greaving family in such a way so as to add to their suffering

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."


thank you. nice

we don't get to criticise how other people behave unless we behave better than them when given the opportunity
 
2014-03-20 01:22:05 PM  
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.

nekom: Lando Lincoln: When nearly everyone in your country is glad that you're no longer part of it, it's a good bet that you wasted your life.

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.

I don't do the wikipedia thing, so I can't edit it, but somebody needs to add, at the very end where it says:
Phelps died shortly before midnight on March 19.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Phelps#cite_note-90">[90]and there was much rejoicing

Alpha Sierra Foxtrot: It almost makes you wish that there was, in fact, some sort of afterlife so that he can look at it and think, "I was wrong...I was all wrong..."


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.

Its very convenient him dieing without even denying that he on multiple occasions engaged in  gay sex with Senators and Congressmen
 
2014-03-20 01:24:21 PM  
Only God may judge.  A point missed by Mr. Phelps.  Everyone is acting like this will change anything.  He was an old, sick, man.  Twisted and foul.  His progeny are running the show.  His passing will change nothing.

/epic thread is epic
 
2014-03-20 01:24:28 PM  

Doubleodoug: The best thing anyone could do to celebrate his passing would be to simply attend his funeral and be very respectful to him and all in attendance.  Wear your rainbow lapel pin if you'd like or a red ribbon, but be respectful.

I guess there is no one out there too evil and hateful that someone won't white knight for them.
 
2014-03-20 01:25:14 PM  
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.
 
2014-03-20 01:25:21 PM  
We need to make sure to seal his grave with iron and salt. Hatred like that might linger.

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.
