Nobody important, he just said some bad things about some people.

So is that why Ghost fancies him?

Much as I despise him and his church and what he stands for, I can't say I'm happy he's dead. People dying doesn't make me happy. :[

He didn't deserve any attention during his life, and he doesn't deserve any attention now.  None of them do, and they will never go away as long as we continue gawking at them.

It's really his daughter that holds Westboro together.

Did anyone picket his funeral? I hope no one did.
Title: Re: Fred Phelps is dead.
Post by: Saddam Hussein on March 23, 2014, 04:39:04 PM
Westboro won't be holding a funeral for him.  And even if they were, it wouldn't be worth giving them even more attention.
Title: Re: Fred Phelps is dead.
Post by: rooster on March 23, 2014, 04:41:05 PM
Yeah, I guess that should be "I hope no one does". I have no idea when the funeral was/is.

"Gospel message, from the mouth of the Lord, is 'God Hates Fags', that's a profound theological statement"

Still getting the lulz even when the worms are eating his skull. *sigh*.

Also 2:15 McCauley Culkin is burning for why?
Title: Re: Fred Phelps is dead.
Post by: Yaakov ben Avraham on March 27, 2014, 11:21:47 PM
The original question: Is Fred Phelps burning in Hell? I suppose you'd have to believe in a burning Hell for him to go there, & I don't. That being said, I think the man has a lot to answer for. But THAT being said, I'm only a human being. Who knows how God will judge Mr. Phelps? I don't. & the previous poster who said that he did a lot for Black persons was right. & however distasteful his views on homosexuals may have been, he never harmed one to my knowledge. So in the end, he was an ass. No more, no less.

I dunno what the moral difference is between wishing people to burn in hell and being Fred Phelps.

Well, Fred didn't wish for anyone to suffer, he was just very vocal about his belief that they are going to suffer unless they change their ungodly views.

Spreading hate speech is harmful. It encourages and causes other people to commit crimes against the target of such speeches.

And I doubt he did a great deal for black people.

Scott Lively next please.

Actually, I was equally surprised to hear that he was quite the fighter in the Civil Rights Movement. CNN did a report @ his death. A contemporary of his said that although he was not @ all in agreement w/ Phelps on the gay issue, that Phelps was the man Black people went to in the late '50s & '60s. I shall agree w/ you on the deleterious effects of hate speech, however. It could theoretically cause another person to go off half-cocked & do something stupid, though we don't know that Phelps had that effect or not.

I heard he was a racist ass monkey that was just chasing the money. Also wasn't he disbarred? So can't have been that great a lawyer.

“We would call black people 'DNs' at home,” Nathan Phelps explained. “It stood for dumb n***ers...We thought it was clever to call them that in front of them.” (http://www.examiner.com/article/westboro-baptist-church-fred-phelps-is-a-racist)
