Great news! http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/20/us/westboro-church-founder-dead/
I wouldn't. It just sinks to his level and gives them more press. Let him go quietly into obscurity. Who knows, maybe they'll start leaving military families alone now. We can only hope.
Ol' Freddie has a lot to answer to from a much higher authority than me...good luck with that one, ya old coot!
I've stood too many times to honor our heroes and to oppose what this group does to turn around and do the same thing. I'll quote what was stated above "Let him go quietly into obscurity."
I wasn't inciting anyone to picket... more I was just thinking as to whether anyone cared enough to do so.
At the same time, I wonder if westboro will picket the funeral, as clearly phelps' death of old age was clearly the result of the success of homosexuals.
The flames of Hell are burning brighter now.
You guys are so kind! How about a couple of cases of beer on his grave? (passed through some Vets of course)
If it wasn't in a cemetery, it would be a great spot for an outhouse.
I'm not sure there's anything to picket. Maybe a big ol tailgate party complete with cheerleaders?
Too soon? (definitely NOT!)
I am all for the freedom of speech, however this guy was way out of line. I refer to him as weasel lips.
They are going to Cremate that bigots @$$ in Kansas? They might serve him up as BBQ... Tastes like chicken???
No loss to anyone of any level of normalcy! Good riddance.
Just by posting, It almost gives credence to what he did.
Like the old Drill Sgt. Joke, when he asked the trainee, if he was going to pee on his grave... "No Drill Sgt., when I leave the Army, I will no longer stand in lines...". Lots of truth in that idea.
Fred had serious Extremely Serious problems. I am comfortable in knowing that he has stood in front of his Maker, and lost the "case" as to his reason's why...
Let him disappear into Gehenna.
However, I do wonder if or how, it will change the Legal Entity, that brazenly Conspired to call itself a church. Little 'c' used purposely.
It may sound bizarre, coming from a Conservative Christian, but I have more respect for the satanic church, again, no Caps, on purpose, than I do, a bunch of lawyers, and para-legals, calling themselves a church, to create a special beyond legal organization, to avoid retribution just to be able to be homophobic.
The former, have a real belief system, even if wrong, in my opinion. The latter, used the legal system, to spread hatred, not part in the Christian System of Belief
Jesus Christ was not homophobic, he taught to Quit Sin, accept God's Way...
Early in the morning in the BoonDocks
Saw this earlier and thought it might fit about here....
Well, I wasn't planning to attend, but if it's going to be a pissy party get out the balloons! If the bereaved family of our offended upon war dead need a ride....
Oh to be a fly on the wall when 'ol Fred tries to justify his action to the Almighty...
In principle you may be right, but what of, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."?
I have a general rule when it comes to people like Phelps; "Ignore the idiots"
As for cremation, I think my ex-FIL chose cremation for two reasons:
a) He wanted to deny myself and others the pleasure of what I was planning to do to his grave. "What I leave on your grave won't pass for flowers" - The Shootist
b) He was too cheap to pay for burial.
