Fred Phelps Dead

I’d vowed to dance on this person’s grave. When the time came, there was no exaltation. There was nothing. And that was appropriate, for it ended the way it began.

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.

Westboro Baptist Church’s View on 2012

Getting an endorsement from Westboro Baptist Church is like getting an endorsement from the KKK. We all know of Fred “God Hates Fags” Phelps and his off-the-wall little church in Topeka, Kansas. So who, if anyone, would those gay-hating churchgoers vote for in 2012? Since Bachmann is out of the race, I automatically assumed they’d pick Santorum.

I Googled it. The answer was a surprise, and not a welcome one. According to The Christian Post, citing an interview with The Huffington Post, Phelps’ gang would probably favor Obama.

This, from the same church that excoriates Obama as the Antichrist and embodiment of all evil. Why Westboro’s hatred for the gay-hating 2012 GOP lineup?

According to the Christian Post article, Timothy Phelps, youngest son of Fred Phelps, said:

“These people claim to be Christian, New Gingrich and Mitt Romney and some of them others. They aren’t pure followers of Jesus Christ. I wouldn’t trust [any] of them with a handful of change to go get me some bubble gum. There’s nothing of any value in [any] of those human beings.”

He said the current president would be a better choice despite his support of the LGBTQ community.

I noted that the Christian Post reporter could at no point in the article bring himself to refer to Phelps the elder as “Reverend.”

Everything we wanted to know. And less.
