Skip to comments.Westboro attorney: Obama, justices going to hell
Posted on 03/07/2011 10:50:32 AM PST by rightwingintelligentsia
The attorney who won the Supreme Court case last week affirming the Westboro Baptist Churchs right to stage anti-gay protests outside military funerals suggested on Sunday the high courts nine justices are going to hell.
I have no objective indicator otherwise. The default for mankind is hell unless you bring forth fruits meet for repentance. The assumption is that you will end up in hell when you quit your life on this Earth, attorney Margie Phelps said during an appearance on Fox News Sunday. Phelps is the daughter of Westboros founder, the Rev. Fred Phelps.
There is a duty of every human to bring forth fruit meet for repentance, she added. I have seen no evidence of that in a single leader in that nation.
So the justices are going to hell? The president is going to hell? asked Fox host Chris Wallace.
Absolutely on the president," Margie Phelps replied. The president is going to be king of the world before this is all said and done, and he is most likely the beast spoken of in the Revelation.

I watched a bit of this woman on fox the other night. I could only stomach her for a very few minutes. Why is anyone giving this woman any air time at all is beyond me.
The goal of the media is to make Christ look bad.
She may be right about Obama.
Ms Phelps and the Westboro Babtist Church have nothing to do with Christ.
The Westboro church can likely tell the Obamas and the Justices themselves at the appointed time.
Wondering what Wallace’s ratings were with her on the program, as “freak shows” are quite popular throughout history.
I find it hard to believe a human being can hold that much hatred and not explode, literally.
I wish she would have added “And Ded Kennedy is saving him a place”.
True, they could be seeing quite a bit of each other.
Sure, but many unsaved look at a woman like this and say all church people are the same.
Just ignore these morons
How did this get fast-tracked to the supreme court so fast?
How do they afford an appeal to the supreme court?
who is funding these morons?
they would be nothing if the lib media did not keep putting them into the news
Makes you wonder why Chris Wallace would want her on his show.
I guess there is no short supply of hateful loons out there.
He may be starting a segment with the “loon of the week” from here on out.
If this deranged b!tch is characteristic of the residents of heaven, I’m going to side with Twain and declare my preferences as follows;
Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company
If the media would just ignore these yahoos they’d probably go away.
I don’t disagree with you on that. However Westboro isn’t some odd little congregation that sits in their pews spouting this crap but doesn’t go looking for negative attention. They’re pretty good at calling attention to themselves. This is not a case of “ignore them and they’ll go away”.
Marge, you’re telling us this like we didn’t already know.
Your conclusion is highly doubtful and the point is moot.
But with "Baptist" in their name, they can be used to slander those who do.
No, Ted Kennedy is saving him a place in Hell. Ded Kennedy is saving him a place on the flight to a holiday in Cambodia.
I hope for the best for President Obama personally, no matter what I may think of his political ideas. To do otherwise would be to descend into Westboro territory. Christ did not wish for us to revel in hatred.
Is Phelps really an ordained minister? Is the Westboro Baptist Church a real place of worship or just a place for kooks to hang out?
What do you think it takes to be ordained? A Church body or in this case a sick cult can set their own bylaws for the ministry. You can pretty much ordain yourself pastor of the Church of the Jello Pudding Pop, and be able to use the Pastor title.
Note even in Algore, Fred Phelps' old friend?
Would you have considered John the Baptist hateful for rebuking King Herod?
Obama is wicked and deserves the strongest condemnation.
“You can pretty much ordain yourself pastor of the Church of the Jello Pudding Pop, and be able to use the Pastor title.”
I realize that but his “church” is called the Westboro Baptist Church, no mention of Jello Pudding Pops whatsoever. Baptists are Christians. I can’t say the same for Phelps’ group.
These people are clearly insane. I have no objective indicator otherwise.
I was actually just joking. But since the use of LOL is being questioned, I left it off.
However, there are people out their that think he is the AntiChrist.
The main question is: If the WBC is so against homosexuality, why don’t you see them protesting at gay events?
Answer: The issue isn’t homosexuality.
You would never know any of this from media coverage, but once you know the background, you suddenly notice that strangely the media never mention ANY political affiliation for this group. Isn't that interesting? If the Westboro idiots were conservatives and registered Republicans, I think it's pretty safe to say that the media would repeat that fact endlessly. The fact that they are mute on this point speaks volumes.
Regarding your tagline, today we have NATCA and I can tell you from personal experience that they are becoming almost as bad as PATCO ever was.
I wonder if the people in that church ever ran across the Bible verse that says “in the same way you judge others, you will be judged”. These folks better really live holy lives or they will be in for a real surprise.
You should have watched the whole interview. When asked about Christina Taylor Green, she said there are no innocents, yet at the end of the interview, she said that the US military is killing innocents. The look of disbelief on Chris Wallace’s face was priceless.
Also, you should have heard the callousness with which she explained away the deaths of her own grandmother and great aunt.
By virtue of the laws of self-perpetuation and promotion they invariably do get more obnoxious. All the more reason to remember PATCO - and what was their undoing.
What did she say about her grandma and aunt?
I’m usually pretty obtuse about nuances and humor but today I’m more obtuser than usual.
I was wondering who would be the first to catch that and post.
Funny thing though, with the FOIA request of Kennedy's tours of commies in South America, we know he would have loved to do a holiday in Cambodia and interview Pol Pot for suggestions on how to better run our country.
“and he is most likely the beast spoken of in the Revelation.
Hard to argue with that one sentence. Otherwise they are a bunch of nutjobs from Hell.
or the church of the New Coke - since it’ll be around forever. I hope we can agree on that if you’re going to bring bill Cosby into the mix anyhow. /puddingpop
(1) the Supremes truly believe in what the SCOTUS has ruled in the past about “community standards” and “constitutional limitations” on “free speech” rights concerning pornography,
(2) given that the Phelps church can, legally and legitimately take their “protest” to a “publicly permitted” venue - a public venue the local authorities give them a permit for (which would not limit “speech” but only its venue - which is often the case when it comes to the government’s own property)
(3) certainly NO LESS than “community standards” should be allowed to keep them away from the funerals of our fallen soldiers.
And besides, what is more “pornographic” than the extremist view of the Phelps-church cult??
have nothing to do with Christ
Evidently they have no claim to the name Baptist according to two Beptist ministers last night on the local tv news.
I say that meaning other Baptist congregations do not recognize them as anything related to the Baptist faith. One comment was “they are not a church”.
That’s true but the media doesn’t know that. Both the media and Westboro are dupes for Satan.
Baptists are not automatically Christians, just as any other denomination is not. No one is. Nothing is automatic. Being a Christian involves having a personal relationship with Christ. It’s a personal decision and a personal relationship and being part of a “church” - any church - is no cover. Christ saves individually, not “en masse”.
Very true, but I admit to having a great deal of difficulty being “sad” over the fate of the 9/11 terrorists who are reaping the fruit of their evil as we speak and will be doing so for all eternity. Perhaps that’s wrong of me, but I can’t help feeling a sense of satisfaction over their fate.
They could attempt to affiliate themselves with the American Baptists or the Southern Baptists if they so chose. Not sure about the former, but fairly certain they’d have a hard time being allowed to send messengers to the SBC Convention. Don’t think anyone they sent would be seated.
She said that those women had to be out of the way for Fred Phelps to become what he’s become, which if you assume that they were decent human beings, might just be true, but she said it in such a way that just proves what a heartless and soulless bunch the Westboro beasts are.
