Fred Phelps, the pastor and head lunatic of Westboro
Baptist Church (WBC) of Topeka, Kansas (call 785-273-0325
or visit godhatesfags.com) has written an open letter
to the family of Heath Ledger.
In the short letter is a demand that the Ledger family
divulge the time, date, and place of the late actors
burial in Perth, Australia,
so WBC can go - in respectful proximity - and conduct a
Fred Phelps has already caused untold suffering and pain
to the families of dead American soldiers by
protesting their funerals with signs proclaiming
that God Hates America because Gad Hates Fags
and America tolerates them.
He even proclaims on his website that Americans should celebrate
Improvised Explosive Devices as a gift from a God
who is punishing the soldiers by blowing them up
again, for Americas crime of tolerating homosexuality.
This image provided by Focus Features shows actor Heath
Ledger portraying the character Ennis Del Mar
in the movie "Brokeback Mountain."
Ledger, the talented 28-year-old actor who gravitated
toward dark, brooding roles that defied his leading-man
looks, was found dead Tuesday in a Manhattan apartment.
Phelps says that Heath Ledger would want the Westboro Ledger
clan (or perhaps, Klan) to appear at his funeral

Maybe we can book a charter flight for him on a remotely piloted Lear...and ditch it in the Pacific.
Has Phelps endorsed anyone? ;-)
This is beyond ludicrous. It’s absolutely insane and totally beyond civilized behavior......
I can think of a few places I’d tell Phelps to go. Perhaps the funeral will be held somewhere WAY deep in the Outback.
The Australians are nuts to let this guy and his loopy, dangerously inbred group of followers into their country. But yes, it would be nice if we could refuse to allow them back into ours.
The Aussies don’t mess around. We may yet see Flat Fred.
If he pulls that crap in Perth he is going to get his a$$ kicked by a mob.
One word... Quigley.
If ya know any one down under with some influence, tell them to spread the word about POS Phelps.
I saw a brief report about this on an entertainment tabloid TV show the other day and they called them a “French protest group” - I knew for sure from the rest of the description that it was the WBC Phelps group, so had to laugh and “hope” that France really is taking the blame for them!
Does anyone know where this whackjob gets his money? Is it all from the nuts that attend his ‘church’?
That is exactly where Fred Phelps is going to wind up.
Has Phelps endorsed anyone? ;-)
But in keeping with the antics of the Westboro Baptist Church folks.
I hope the Aussies beat the sh#t out of them.
I think they have crocodiles down there. So he'd be croc bait.
He should have stuck to harassing Hollywood actors funerals in the first place. Then I wouldn’t have such a problem with him.
From suing people who try to intervene in his activities. It’s a simple money-making system: provoke somebody into punching you, or provoke a local government into “violating your First Amendment rights” by arresting you, sue, collect lots of cash, use this cash to finance a whole bunch more provocations.
This guy is a first-class ass ...
I have a problem with ANYONE harassing ANY funeral ...
Regardless whether they’re right substantively (which they regularly are NOT), picketting a funeral is classless and obnoxious.
He does more harm to the causes of Christianity and conservatism than any American leftist or liberal could ever do.
Does anyone here not believe that Rev Fred is a closet pillow-biter?
It's because he is a liberal anti-God provocateur. He is a deep mole designed to hurt Christianity. Plus, he's a homosexual.
Nope, God hates all the candidates.
And, sadly, according to Phelps, I am not kidding.
He has a loooong list of who God hates, and it includes everyone but members of his “church” (most of whom are in his family).
Maybe We can refuse reentry.
That would be so great. I would even contribute a ticket for them to go and STAY in North Korea.
He should have stuck to harassing Hollywood actors funerals in the first place. Then I wouldnt have such a problem with him.
I would. What right do these sleezebags have to protest any funeral. Is nothing sacred to you?
When I saw “Fred Phelps goes down” at first I thought maybe he had joined the other team.
“Does anyone know where this whackjob gets his money? Is it all from the nuts that attend his church?”
I guess someone withing that inbred congregation...err...family of his has some money that’s been paying for all this classless junk.
Doesn’t the bible say that He hates sin, but not sinners?
Am I wrong, or do their very signs contradict His word?
Methinks he joined the other team a long time ago. He just never changed jerseys.
Have the Aussies tell them it’s 2,000 miles in the middle of the outback .....
Maybe a dingo will eat Phred the Phreak, or a super poisonous Aussie viper will take him down for good.
When Phelps protested at Water Reed on that Saturday, he had 12 protesters and 8 attorneys watching. Honest.
This man is certifiably insane (I’ve read his sons’ biographies).
The best thing that could happen would be for the media would just stop giving him any attention. But we all know that the chances of that happening are nil.
I was hoping for the Spiked Nose Australian Fart Beetle to take them out ....
