After finding out Rev. Fred Phelps Sr. was on the verge of death many quipped the Westboro Baptist Church, the very organization he founded, would picket his funeral like they have so many others in the past. It might sound like a joke but apparently its the real deal: the WBC will hold a demonstration at the funeral of their former pastor.
Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., the founder of the Westboro Baptist Church, was reportedly excommunicated from the group.
Phelps Sr., 84, began to make headlines over the weekend after his estranged son Nathan posted a note to Facebook where he said the pastor is currently in hospice care and was excommunicated from the organization for reasons that remain unclear. As twisted as it may be, his daughter Margie (who is a part of the WBC) said on Twitter the hate-fueled organization would definitely be at his funeral, if only to picket.
My dad Pastor Fred Phelps is a hell bound f*g enabling whore, she shockingly wrote on Twitter Sunday evening. #Westboro Baptist Church to protest this whores Funeral. Margie had nothing but revulsion to spread in regards to her fathers ailing health. She added he is now a hell bound whore.
Speculation as to why he was excommunicated is rampant on the Internet, with some assuming the WBC members found out Phelps was actually gay and others thinking he might have had a change in heart as his health declined. Theres no definite answer as of now.
Despite Margie and Nathans public statements that reveal Phelps Sr.s passing is imminent, the WBC issued a Recent Media FAQ that denied the former pastor was not doing well. They said Phelps is a person of advanced age, and such people sometimes have health issues. But the organization seemed annoyed at the insinuation that theyre former pastor was near death since its highly speculative and foolish considering that all such matters are the sole prerogative of God. As far as Phelps allegedly being excluded from member ship at the WBC, the organization succinctly replied: Membership issues are private.
A spokesperson for the WBC said Phelps Sr. was in hospice care, but would not remark any further. We don't owe any talk to you about that," Westboro spokesman Steve Drain told the Topeka Capital-Journal. "We don't discuss our internal church dealings with anybody. It's only because of his notoriety that you are asking."
Ping! Thanks for the tip!
You just can’t make this stuff up.
The final humiliation
Some sort of contagious brain-wasting prions is my best guess at explaining these vermin.
Would the government force a gay florist to provide all the floral arrangements for the funeral?
This group has done more to help the homosexual cause than GLADD PFLAG LGBTQXYZ combined.
My dad Pastor Fred Phelps is a hell bound f*g enabling whore,
Think she’s in the will?
Geeeezzz...these people just hate “EVERYBODY”!
I can’t wait until they start having church services where they protest each other.
Jeeeeeeeeeeeez......... this is what happens when blood relatives reproduce.
I hope it's the latter.
Could it merely be that he had a change of heart?
If they are baptized in anything it’s misguided vitriol.
Homos are a very visible problem today. Whether they mean doom is yet to be seen. I think it is a warning and a challenge to modern Christendom, which has had difficulties with ordinary marital purity let alone perversions. If you don’t get sex right before the Lord, you can’t be anything but a hypocrite to homosexuals — adultery is adultery.
If I were the devil and I wanted to take the attention off of Christendom, a joke joint like this might be something I’d encourage.
Don’t you need a heart before you can change it?
this doesn’t even rise to the level of redneck. it’s trash.
