Fuck Fred Phelps!
This is so unbelievably sick, I am almost speechless. What an awful excuse for a human being. He is in my area to picket and protest at the funeral of a young man (22 years old) who entered the army just out of high school and was killed a few days ago in Iraq. This was a kid who beat the odds and graduated with honors, and most likely was in the military to earn money for college. He married his high school sweetheart, and they had two young children together. It is such a tragic tale - the same one being played out in towns and cities all over the U.S.

I have no clue why the wretched Phelps is picketing funerals of soldiers killed in the line of duty as a way to promote his insidious anti-gay agenda. This is so, so sick.

1. He's a disgrace to the human race.
His "reasoning" is that because the US supports homosexuals (by not burning them at the stake) we are all doomed to hell.

72. I read on another board
that who used to be very active with Civil Rights, it wasn't until one of his kids died (I believe in some type of car accident) that he went nuts. Although, I don't know if its true or not, but some made mention of it I believe on talkleft.com. It seemed to be refering to a previous topic in which someone had posted a bio of him. So if thats true, than he probaly is registered Democrat. And if that is true (and only if that is true) I have an incredible amount of sympathy for him (loosing a child), but he's still a nut and his actions are despicable.

75. The story I have always heard
is that he was just a preacher until one of his sons came out as gay. Then he became an activist anti-gay preacher. Somewhere along the line, he went to law school. Now he files lawsuits and protests at funerals.

41. You're thinking of Randall Terry
Phelps is the God Hates Fags guy. His ministry is very specialized: they preach against homosexuals, nothing else.

Now he's big on saying Osama is God's Punishment on the world for tolerating homosexuality, but his newfound support for terrorism doesn't change the fact that he's still specializing in hating homosexuals.

He desires a confrontation so he and his lawyer clan/family can sue someone or everyone. Where do you think the lion's share of his money comes from.

8. Seeking more attention.
We are bored with him and his anti gay agenda, now he has something that will rile up everyone all over again. More news coverage, more outrage, more pictures in the papers. Damn, it is a wet dream for him. Ignore him, seriously. He just might spontaneously combust.

Actually, Phelps himself is getting old. unfortunately he's passed the legacy on to his kids, grandkids, and even some great-grandkids. i still think the energy will probably fizzle out eventually once he's dead, unless (and there is a fair chance of this) one of the heirs is as possessed of unceasing rage and hatred and *energy* as he is.

77. They are as possesed.
I really don't know how much stamina they will have but they are out there with their families every single day. They have now split into 3 groups that picket 3 times a day here.

It is hard to say what the kids will do but there is another one of their members who I think just might take up the cause but I can't remember his name right off hand.

his own funeral should be disrupted with a celebratory "ding, dong, the dick is dead"...he and his family have it coming.

11. Because he funds his cult via LAWSUITS! They are all LAWYERS, y'know...
No one is taking any swings at his followers lately,
so he has to find different places to provoke a beating.

Military Funerals seem like a good spot for
these people to recieve a serious beating, no?
And once they do, it's $$$ time for FRED!

It's all a SCAM with Fred and his fake "cult".

15. This seems to be out of general hatred of the federal government.
Freddy has two web sites: 'God hates fags,' and 'God hates America.' The latter is claimed to be the result of the former. This case seems unrelated, except in the feverish brain of Freddy Phelps.

36. Care to explain the "super fund"?
I don't get it.

Also....Fred Phelps does not equal Kansas. That crazy fucker is as despised here as anywhere else in the country. Unfortunately for us, he and his children are (for the most part) all attorneys and quite familiar with their rights making it impossible to get rid of him. Aside from that, they basically own a compound in Topeka and much like David Koresh (sp?), the authorities are scared as hell to go in there.

Having said that, this is the one time where I wouldn't mind seeing an angry mob with pitch forks exact some justice.

Obviously everyone has figured me out. I was lamely attempting to explain Phreddy Phelps feverish brain as being the result of his living in close proximity to a superfund site. But in doing so, I've exposed my secret agenda to malign all of Kansas fine folk.

:sarcasm:

My anti-kansas agenda having been foiled, I will now skulk off to the DU Lounge to continue my anti-Kansasism. :eyes:

I was wondering why you posted your thread in the lounge. LOL. I could not figure out why it was there.

He lives in my city, I have known his family all my life. I went to school with his children. All they have to do with Topeka, Kansas is the unfortunate fact that they live here.

He has flipped around from one issue to another. It is always something. It must have started before he got here! Had to have started before he got here! Noooo, we are not all like him! It must be our zip code, 666.

Come on, now. Get a pack of cigarettes, and a fine cigar. Smoke a cigarette, then smoke the cigar.

Don't you think God really prefers the complex aromas and flavors of the cigar to the rather boring, one-note reek of the little paper-wrapped nicotine delivery device?

25. Did any of you ever watch TV Nation? Michael Moores old TV show.
And see the episode where he took a bunch of gay men, and loaded them up in a pink Winnebego, and follow Fred Phelps around for a few weeks?

It was HILARIOUS!

Moore would pull the winnebego up to the Phelps rally, and the men would all get out and start dirty dancing with each other, and french kissing each other right in front of them. Moore wouldn't back down, either. It was simply brilliant.

They caused the Phelps morons to pack up and leave a few times. :)

Seriously, I'm not making this up. They did a short snippet with him on an episode of "30 Days" on FX -- the show was about a homophobic man living with a gay man in the middle of a gay community for 30 days.

I mean, I still think the guy's a complete whack-job, but I have to say I do find him to be not quite so one-dimensional after learning this.... :shrug:

51. He settled almost all of it
out of court and made a BUNDLE from the poor people who thought he was helping them. He is quite one-dimensional.

52. If you have the stomach...
... to check out Phelps' web site (I would NOT do him the honor of linking it here), you'll see that he has a large collection of his "sermons" for download. Out of curiosity, I checked out a few random minutes here and there of his "sermons". What's interesting is that Phelps seems to be totally and utterly obsessed with male gay sex acts... so much so, that to paraphrase Shakespeare: "I think he doth protest too much"... if you see what I'm getting at.

54. Looks like he's trying to encourage his own martyrdom.
Attacking military families in their grief, in the south.

62. FOLKS, THIS IS GREAT!!!!!! Let him keep it up!!! Go Fred Go!!!!
FINALLY, it'll sink in to everybody just how evil, how vile, how disgusting, how perverted, how TRULY un- and anti-American these right-wing scumbags are.

Whenever these pigs talk about how we're destroying the morale of the troops because of our protesting the war or criticizing *, throw this back in their ugly mugs. Put Phelps in their lap and DARE THEM to say another word about morale. Any pro-war hawk running in '06 or '08, run the news footage in ads; link them with Phelps. This is God working in mysterious ways, I guess.

67. You know I decided
I am going to beat the fool to death with my walker. Do you think that'd make me a bad person?

74. It's not the media attention he craves as much as the money
that attention brings him. It's got to be expensive to travel around the country shitting on family's who have lost a loved one...

How many of these do you have Freddie???

79. Just so I'm clear....
...Phelps is protesting at a soldier's funeral because this kid died because God is pissed at us as a country because we allow gays to live among us?

I think some slimy rock is missing the piece of scum that grew under it.
