What do you think about Fred Phelps passing away?

80 posts in this topic

As some of you heard, Fred Phelps, the founder of Westboro Baptist Church (just thinking that name makes me sick) has died. If you're somhow not similiar with Westboro, here's a little example of what they do:

It's sick, I know.

What do you think about it?

Ah, a fellow fancy hamster on the forums. Jolly nice to meet you, good sir!

As for the topic at hand - I honestly don't care. I have a neutral stance about it all. Trying to blame someone for something that doesn't affect me just seems like a waste of time.

I'd never wish death upon someone, that's just evil

But I'm glad I don't have to hear about his shenanigans.

Now I have to hear about the shenanigans of whoever takes over the church.

Eh, well the man wasn't the brightest, but I just ignore the dude. He didn't harm anyone, just protested his weird message.

 

Now the backlash of the death is what scares me the most.

I don't care.

Homophobia that is casual, institutional, and everyday is far more insidious. 

If the guy didn't go to soldier's funerals? No one outside of the LGBTQ community would have much cared. That is what bothers me about the issue.

I can say I have only heard of this dude 3 times in my life, 2 times when he was spreading hate, and now I read this. I wouldn't have known who you were talking about without the picture. Don't really care that he's dead, can't say it makes me happy.... but I sure as hell will not shed any tears for him.

 

WTF is the message "planes crash god laughs" supposed to mean? Actually now that I think of it I'll bet it's best if i stay ignorant on the message, it's unlikely to be anything I want to hear.

That's the thing about the WBC. They don't really make any bloody sense.

I'm so offended by their signs.

 

Why does anyone even care about this? I think there are only like 30 or 40 people in their church maybe less and the only reason anyone knows them is because they do ridiculous things for attention. It's just some interesting media story that sells.

I think that the most damaging thing that he did was to the reputations of religious people everywhere. I am a Christian with a family of very accepting Christians, but when I tell others this some people just group me, Phelps, and every other person of religion together. It just makes me sad :(

They believe that god is punishing society for allowing the sin of "Sodom and Gomorah" to go on around us. Basically.

It's not just them that believes this.

Because hate is better than peace. All those people suggesting taking the "high road" are idiots. Don't you know? You don't get force lightning by going jedi.

I hope a whole bunch of gay people have very gay sex on his grave.

 I cannot describe in words how funny that is 

 

So here's a picture:
