I believe he was about as “Christian” as the “Reverend” Jim Jones.

There are a lot of people who believe in God and who profess to being Christian, but who pervert scripture to their own sick purposes. Doesn't make them atheists, just misgiuided souls who will learn the error of their ways in His own good time.

I have read that the “playing with his ding-a-ling” story is false, made from the hijacked Twitter account of one of his daughters.

The other story is more credible. They were going to discipline a female church member for something and he advocated “taking it easy” on her. That hacked off the ‘church council’ and they gave him “the left foot of fellowship” from among them.

Phelps will be able to warm himself by the still burning Teddy Kennedy grease fire.

I was taught not to speak ill of the dead. But in this case I’ll make an exception: “Ill!”.

I’ve watched some very strict hardliners moderate in their old age in my own family, the dawning realization that we’re all sinners in need of salvation, at the hands of a God who is not only an angry God but a loving one as well. It sounds like selling out to younger people who are not nearing the end of their lifes’ journey, who have not seen so much of human frailty, but in reality it’s forgiveness. So, I do tend to believe he moderated and was booted for it, that makes perfect sense in light of what I know, based upon my own experiences and what I understand of this church.

He and his group have played into the hand of the queers and made many people more anti-Christian than they already were. Don’t forget he was a big supporter of Al Gore.

Nah. Some other fool will pick up where he left off.

RIP. I hope you went to confession and confessed your sins and received Last Rights as that is the only way you may get into Heaven IMHO.

Hell no. They should have done no such thing. Who the hell is it of your business to protest anybody’s funeral. It is sick and you are sick to suggest such a repulsive idea.

Where do we get to protest his funeral? Lots of loud bikers might help.

It has been discussed and decided not to because it would just give attention which they live on. Plus why lower ourselves to protest a funeral. In my opinion you can’t get any lower than that.

If indeed God has the final say....then only He and Mr. Phelps know this gentleman’s’s final resting place. I am often surprised how some of the Old Testament Heroes were actually pretty despicable characters earlier in their lives. Paul’s ( as Saul ) persecution of Christ’s followers
prior to his Damascus Road conversion comes to mind. Wherever, Mr Phelp’s resides depends upon God’s mercy. I know full well that while I may feel superior to Mr Phelps...in the end I will be equally dependent upon God’s mercy myself. My humble opinion only.

Phelps didn't believe he was subverting Christianity. If anything he thought people like you and me were.

I feel bad for the lost soul if he did not repent his sins enough, as for the person, I am glad he is no longer of this realm called life.

On the other hand if he were an Obama supporter then that might explain his recent excommunication. Of course, he’s also six kinds of senile so how would Fred really know?
