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"?
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.
loonatic112358: I'd like to see this group as a brief blip in human history that is forgotten by all.
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.
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.
Mock26: Phelps and his scumbag family were only exercising their First Amendment Right when they protested the funerals of soldiers who were killed in action. It is only fitting that other Americans exercise that same right and protest his funeral.Also, is this Nathan Phelps a real account? I mean, his picture is of a troll. Can we really take the post seriously?
AspectRatio: that bosnian sniper: Nabb1: Protest? Asshole isn't worth the effort.I say, send words of condolences and encouragement, prayers, and thoughts. Kill the bastards with kindness, and show them how Christianity damn well ought to behave instead of their hateful tripe.Yup. This is how to do it.
maxwellton: I think people should turn this pending occurrence into an opportunity to do some good, and make a donation in Phelp's name to charity he would probably not approve of.
MBK: They should host a big gay pride parade on the day of his funeral.
Tymast: Being excommunicated none of the other family members are allowed to visit him so he is wasting away alone in the hospice.
nekom: markie_farkie: nekom: His funeral is going to look like burning manActually the best funeral would have ZERO attendees, with the family choosing to have his corpse tossed in an unmarked ditch somewhere.Though I've always held that the best thing is to never feed the trolls, i.e. ignore those asshats, it would seem pretty fitting and proper to me for an impromptu pride parade to break out at his funeral. If for no other reason than the lulz that could be generated. He's beyond "doesn't deserve any respect whatsoever" and well into the "deserves contempt, malice and shame" column.
Ringshadow: So I casually googled and I can't find any real explanation on his being excommunicated. Just speculation that he's gay. Weirdest wishful thinking ever.Also,[svg.xs4all.nl image 312x445]
Earguy: I want to learn more about Fred being "excommunicated" from his own church. Is this true? Why?
perigee: I call for an army of homos, armed with super-soakers and a month worth of saved up semen. Start hoarding ammo now!
AspectRatio: loonatic112358: I'd like to see this group as a brief blip in human history that is forgotten by all.This.
thisdaydreamer: I don't believe in rejoicing someone's death, but this shiatstain makes it hard to keep to that. I certainly believe the world will be a better place without the hate he has spewed for so long.
MayoSlather: He's about to see how god feels about bigots...or how imaginary people feel about nothing.
Heliovdrake: 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.You do know the Phelps clan has no actual supporters right?You know they are a clan of lawyers and disbarred lawyers?You know they make their money by doing these protests and then suing anyone who attempts to stop them, or anyone stupid enough to attack them right?You know they don't believe any of the shiat they say, they are just using religion as a cover to try an piss people off into stopping them from protesting by any means so they can get them into court and collect cash right?
MaudlinMutantMollusk: He can finally come out of the closet now
JesusJuice: Anyone know which hospital/care facility he's in? I would like to mock him as he dies.

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.
