Westboro Baptist Church founder Rev. Fred Phelps Sr. is in hospice care and near death, according to family and church members say. His estranged son says the longtime pastor's passing would put his followers in a crisis, because the church's members "think that death is a judgment from God."
"So far, that illusion has held because none of them has passed," Nathan Phelps continues in an interview with the Topeka Capital-Journal .
The church's members are convinced they will be taken up by Jesus Christ, he tells the newspaper. "They're clear about that, that they're not going to feel the sting of death," he says.

Hey, we could have a blast at his funeral!
“They’re clear about that, that they’re not going to feel the sting of death,”
“They’re clear about that, that they’re not going to feel the sting of death,” he says.
Boy, I guess they will excommunicate each one as they pass, until there are no members left! A blessing in disguise!
That way they'll get to feel the 10,000 stings of death.
Well, NPR is at it again, whitewashing things:
***The reason for Fred Phelps’ excommunication isn’t known. A church spokesman interviewed by the Capital-Journal didn’t deny the action, but he refused to elaborate. Another of Phelps’ sons contacted the newspaper to say its version of events was accurate.
Nathan Phelps told The Associated Press in a phone interview Sunday night that church members had voted Phelps out of the church “after some kind of falling out.”***
I’ve heard ole Fred was caught masturbating, making him a gay enabling whore...according to his daughter’s tweets.
According to Phelp’s daughter - Westboro is going to protest at his funeral. His daughter called him a fag-loving whore that deserved to die!
Yeah. I'm going out on a limb here to suggest that maybe somebody has some Daddy Issues...
No mercy from them or to them.
Hundreds should go to his funeral with big signs saying, “God Hates Fred Phelps”
I would guess that when senility started to set in, he was less capable of controlling his behavior and words. Probably then the true reason for his rabidly anti Christian behavior came out. Someone that vehement is hiding something. We saw it with Jimmy Swaggart’s histrionic railings against sexual sins, and then his reason came out. Phelps is probably fighting against years of his own forbidden sexual cravings.
Phelps is loathed on Free Republic, but of course the MSM knows better.
They are a cult. I’m very happy for those who managed to get out.
“According to Phelps daughter - Westboro is going to protest at his funeral. His daughter called him a fag-loving whore that deserved to die!”
I suspect that has soon as he cashes in his chips that whole family will fight for control of the church. That eldest daughter will want it and fight tooth and nail for it.
