Reports that Fred Phelps, 84, founder of the Topeka, Kan., church known for its anti-gay message and protests of military funerals, is on his deathbed have some looking forward to the Westboro Baptist Church pastor’s passing.

The Facebook page Fred Phelps Death Watch was created March 16 and has nearly 1,900 likes. The page states, “While we wait for God to take him, because he hates homosexuals, let’s relive some of his more memorable moments while we wait.”

Oh sure cheer when he cashes in his chips. That only lowers oneself down to their level.

Since he’s a Democrat, they already share that level. (The DUmmies found out about his party affiliation in 2006 apparently, and didn’t take it well.)

Hi Morganatic.

I suppose his health can be monitored so his funeral can be picketed? I hope veterans show up to wish him Bon Voyage.

It is why he was used by the Left....it is all about promoting their agenda 24/7 and Phelps was so vicious and a true bigot, it made hating Christians, “Cool”.

He was no Christian. Hopefully, he will make amends before he dies.

[ Phelps was so vicious and a true bigot ]

If you have ever seen his eyes in a picture or video, it always looked to me like the man was posessed by demons of some sort.

Those were not the eys of a lost human, or a godly man, they are the eyes of someone who has gone bad to the point of being irredeemable.

hopefully, they'll bury him facedown, towards his final destination.

“As I live, said the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live.”

While we look forward the death of someone of unsavory character, how are we any better than liberals who celebrate the death of good people like Jerry Falwell or Andrew Breitbart?

Will they be discussing his close relationship with the Gore family?

You know that Phelps was excommunicated from his church. Also, Westboro is going to picket and demonstrate at his funeral. In addition to that his daughter is apparently calling him a fag-loving whore. It’s all quite interesting.

I think Westboro's picketing of Gore, seniors funeral put a crimp in that relationship.

Yes, and it feels good.

Hey Phelps, die already. I’ve got to put some flowers on the graves of real Americans, at Arlington Cemetary.

Please give the short version of just HOW Phelps got "excommunicated" from his so-called "church".

The WBC have nothing to do with any church, real or imagined. They are lawyers first and foremost.

Every time they show up at some function, they HOPE they made someone mad enough to assault them so that they can sue.

So I guess that besides being a democrat Al Gore supporter, and a lawyer, you'd have to be pretty damn sleazy to be "excommunicated" from such a group.

Short version= two stories so far:

1) Got caught ‘pleasuring himself’ by a church elder. Daughter says his dementia is no excuse. (This story is being dismissed by some as false.)

2) Called on church’s council to ‘go easy’ on a church member they were going to discipline. Was thrown out for wanting to show mercy.

Well said waterhill.

My mind works in a dissimilar pattern perhaps, but there may be options to cure what are (seemingly) incurable psychotic delusions apparent and heir apparent in a growingly disproportionate percentage of the populace.

There is no ADD, no ADHD, or related ‘illnesses’ that modern pharm companies, health insurers, and especially the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT want to “cure” without what THEY think you need.

I myself am grounded in CHRIST. Yeah I know how psychotic is that.

But in some of the more cogent articles regarding DMT it may be possible to acquaint people who are so against themselves to sorta kinda get to know themselves.

And then maybe they would STFU and we could all get a good night’s sleep.

Over the past week or so I have found there are a number of people that claim to be Christian that have no idea what it really means to be one.

Phelps was an agent provocateur for the Democrats.
