Default Rev Fred Phelps: DEAD

The leader of the Westboro "Church". The guy's in a care facility

Quote:
The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., who founded a Kansas church that's widely known for its protests at military funerals and anti-gay sentiments, is in a care facility.

Westboro Baptist Church spokesman Steve Drain said Sunday that Phelps is being cared for in a Shawnee County facility. Drain wouldn't identify the facility but says Phelps is 84 and "having some health problems."

Members of the Westboro church, based in Topeka, 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.

On USA Today his estranged son says he is almost dead:

Quote:
Fred Phelps, the 84-year-old driving force behind the Westboro Baptist Church, is reportedly in hospice care and "on the edge of death" in Kansas, his estranged son says in a Facebook post. Nate Phelps also claims that the elder Phelps was ex-communicated by his own church last year. "Terribly ironic that his devotion to his god ends this way," wrote the younger Phelps, who left the church in 1980.

Wondering that myself. I had not heard about that. He was either too much or not enough...I guess.

I wonder if he came to his senses in his time of reflection, and as a result he didn't fit their narrow minded ideals anymore

From different things I have seen, any of the family that doesn't agree with Old Fred 100% are kicked out and cannot be talked to by any members of the church. When asked, he does not include any of the kids that have been kicked out in the number of children he has.

He did go to Bob Jones, but dropped out. This man is really crazy, I watched a documentary about their church done by Louie Theroux, the entire family is crazy. I feel bad for the children that have to do what they are told to do.

Oh yeah, she is banned from entering several countries around the world. At least some of her kids are smart and left as soon as they were old enough.

Fall From Grace?

I watched that one. I knew about the funeral protests before watching that, but I couldn't believe all the craziness they have going on.

The Devil has got a special place in hell waiting for his sorry ass, that man is NOT a man of God. I hope he don't go peaceful either I want him to feel the flames as he breathes his last.

This. He broke Jesus's most important commandment to the people. Love thy neighbor....nothing but pure hate in this man, and he will reap what he has sowed.
