    Living With Phelps

    One of the worst things to have to put up with is living in the same town as Fred Phelps.  Every Sunday, when I try to go to my church, Phelps is outside picketing, saying we're "****" and that we're going to hell.  He pickets and harasses anyone who disagrees...

    Protest Fred Phelps With Love

    Fred Phelps protests are full of hate, so why don't we throw our own protests, but instead of fighting hate with hate, we protest with love? It sounds cheesy I know, but I have this idea in my head.  I see the westboro protestors holding signs, shouting as loud as they can...

    He's a Self-loathing Closet Gay

      I think Fred Phelps is gay.  And sadly, since he'd deny himself any sort of gay-life, he'll be G*d damned if anyone else can have one.  Exhibit A: the person.  Have you ever seen that Hideous person named Fred Phelps?  From his ridiculously bleached...

    What a Disgusting Person

    Fred Phelps and his Westboro Church (most of whom are his family members) serve an incredibly hateful god. They've been protesting against gays for years, but since the start of the Iraq War, they've been protesting at soldiers' funerals, saying God is killing the troops as...

    I Am Baptist

    And I totally do NOT share this persons thoughts. The God I worship, loves everyone and hates to see the violence that is endured. This person I'm sure has a front row seat in hell where he can conversate with his true advecaries!

    LUKE 7:47

    Peter rebukes a prostitute for washing Jesus' feet. This is Jesus' reply: "WHEREFRORE I SAY UNTO THEE, HER SINS, WHICH ARE MANY, ARE FORGIVEN. FOR SHE LOVED MUCH. BUT TO WHO LITTLE IS FORGIVEN, THE SAME LOVETH LITTLE"-Jesus Christ. Where I live there is a man who...

    If I Were To Be Diagnosed As Terminaly Ill...

    I know what it is that I'd do with my remaining time and let's just say that it would be to visit with one Fred Phelps. He and his clan are now indicating that they will be protesting the funerals of those who were tragically taken from their loved ones in Arizona including but...

    I Was Doing

    some research on this man because of Brut's story and you would not believe the stuff that I found that HE said in his sermons! I was taken aback! I was horrified! I knew he was awful, but OMG I didn't know he said all this stuff. Other Quotes These quotes came from an audio...

    Disgusting

    I think that "can't stand" is putting it far too mildly for me.  I use the word "hate" rarely, but it applies to my feelings for him. He makes my stomach turn. He makes me wonder why people spend their valuable time hurting others who have NO effect on...

    Christ Is Maligned Because of People Like Phelps

    I am not a Christian but do respect Christ, Christians.  When the word "Christian" comes into the conversation virtually everyone I know will cite the hate filled language of the few who use their faith to justify their own issues.  Phelps is an extreme example but...

    How Can They Say Things Like That?

    Like in the group pic, a slogan I've heard all too many times, "God hates f@&$", I thought Jesus said God loves every human being. Hmm, maybe Phelps skipped those passages. Just goes to show your shouldn't speed read when studying religious texts

    My Opinion

    They will all know who is in hell and who isn't because they'll be right next to them! God wouldn't promote such horrid slangs and putting down or murdering anyone! I say a bunch of people get together and pay to go down to their church and protest them and their evil ways. There...

    Who Is Fred Phelps?

    When I read Burgy's story on Fred Phelps, I wasn't sure if I knew who he was referring to, so I checked real quick on Wikkipedia.  Yep. same guy.  THAT guy.  The guy who always makes the news because he's so controversial and full of hate, although he thinks he's full of the...

    How To Beat Fred Phelps...

    There is only one way to beat Fred Phelps...Ride his coat-tails, and use the opportunity to protest in favour of a general Biblical concept he can't afford to deny.If you face him head-on, he'll just talk you down. If you try to make him afraid, he'll just use that to fuel his...
