Hip, Hip, HOOORAY!
One of the most despicable people in America died last night. Fred Phelps, the founder of the utterly detestable Westboro Baptist Church, stole his last breath of oxygen.
The question is, will people picket his funeral with signs that say, “God hates Westboro”?
For the most part, probably not. Although if they picketed the funeral of one of my loved ones, I’d be there. “Do unto others as they’ve done unto you…” sort of thing.
May he burn in Hell for all eternity.
TOPEKA, Kan. (Fox4KC) — According to several media sources, Fred Phelps, founder of Topeka-based Westboro Baptist Church, passed away Wednesday night.
WIBW-TV in Topeka said one of his sons confirmed Phelps died before midnight.
Phelps Sr., whose church is widely known for its anti-gay sentiments and protests at military funerals, was being cared for in a Shawnee County facility, according to Westboro Baptist Church spokesman Steve Drain.
Members of the church frequently protest at funerals of soldiers with signs containing messages like “Thank God for dead soldiers” and “Thank God for 9/11,” claiming the deaths are God’s punishment for American immorality and tolerance of homosexuality and abortion.
