Fred Phelps and his merry band of misanthropes at Westboro Baptist Church plan to picket the funerals of those killed in the Virginia Tech shootings, according to a message on their website:
"WBC will preach at the funerals of the Virginia Tech students killed on campus during a shooting rampage April 16, 2007. You describe this as monumental horror, but you know nothing of horror -- yet. Your bloody tyrant Bush says he is 'horrified' by it all. You know nothing of horror -- yet. Your true horror is coming. 'They shall also gird themselves with sackloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads' (Eze. 7:18).
Why did this happen, you ask? It's simple. Your military chose to shoot at the servants of God today, and all they got for their effort was terror. Then, the LORD your God sent a crazed madman to shoot at your children. Was God asleep while this took place? Was He on vacation? Of course not. He willed this to happen to punish you for assailing His servants."
Wait, is he talking about the Muslim terrorists? He calls them "servants of God"?!?
Here’s something for your low blood pressure problem. (ducking)
I have no idea. He’s such a foul, repugnant little vermin.
I’d ask if the slob Phelps has no decency, but I know he hasn’t so why even ask.
This surely defines the concept of “Disturbing the Peace.” I call for the Authorities to be on hand to do their duty.
Are these fools identified as not Republican? If not, they should be. Let the loony lefts see their ilk.
“”””””Is this something the Patriot Guard Riders, or a local FReep Chapter, could counter?”””””
This is something that a laser guided missile should counter...
Don’t worry...Fred Phelps and his pack will bite off much more than they can chew in Southwest Virginia. If they try to sound off with their hateful non-sense in Blacksburg or anywhere else in the region, then I predict that they will receive beatings of biblical proportions, based on my intimate knowledge of local psychology there.
Nasty (ahem). Maybe someone could direct them to the refuse department?
One of these days, he and his little coterie will protest the wrong funeral, and there will be serious injury doled out. It’s only a matter of time.
An Al Gore supporter.
Fixed that for ya
Fred is the fulfillment of the homo agenda. Everything he does helps the homo agenda and only a fool would not recognize the intent of his actions.
Hopefully these idiots will be jailed for inciting
Can you help here?
Your lips to God’s ear.
God forgive me for saying this, but why couldn’t it have been Phelps and his band of lunatics instead of those 31 students.
They sure seem to have alot of money for travel.
They were not welcome to West Texas when they came for a fallen hero. I just think they must have some big group behind them that give them funds. They were only 2 ladies and about 5 kids with them when they came here. Really it was pitiful seeing those kids being used.
This guy’s just a nappy-headed ho.
I don’t get that line either. I’m a bit confused.
I hope there is a repeat.
Since the U.S. military is currently shooting at Muslim terrorists, is this "Baptist minister" saying that the jihadists are servants of God?
That jumped right out at me.
beatings of biblical proportions - that would leave a mark.

You are correct. He needs to go.
Surprised he even had time to recognize this tradgic event. Must have taken a break from having sex with his ugly daughters.
(Although this is not an appropriate thread for it) Congratulations on your upcoming marriage!
I am not one to encourage violence, but they need a good kick in the pants.
“Fred Phelps and his merry band of misanthropes at Westboro Baptist Church plan to picket the funerals of those killed in the Virginia Tech shootings, according to a message on their website:”
This clown and his followers make one long for the good old days of Jim Jones or Heavens Gatewhen kooks killed themselves.
I mean, it almost sounds like one of those statements that the Muslim Brotherhood or Al-Qaeda would make.
I have a hunch you are right. For once he might well meet his match in that neck of the woods. All right-thinking Virginians will be aghast at the presence of him and his coven there.
So Fred is a Mus-slime now?
Imam F'ayrhed F'hael'ps?
I wasn’t sure about classifying it; the Admin Moderators can be twitchy. I figured word-of-mouth would suffice.
You know, I've sometimes wondered if this might not actually be the case. I wonder if Phelps and his "church" aren't really just a put-on by the gays, the atheists, or some other group that hates Evangelical and Fundamentalist Christians while simultaneously not having a clue as to what Evangelicals and Fundamentalists actually think or how they would act. The whole Westboro "Baptist Church" shenanigans have a suspicious smell of "atheists trying to pass themselves off as Christians" and failing miserably because they actually believe their own ridiculous caricatures.
And it sounds like he doesn’t think “your military” is Christian at all, even the country.
This guy will deserve whatever he gets.
Phelps and his clan want to be threatened so they can sue and collect damages. That is their racket.
No. He needs no one to rent him a car, sell him gas, sell him food, give him a drink of water. In short, Virginians should decline to have any dealings with this nutjob. I hope someone meets him at the airport or the state line and accompanies him every step of the way. When he stops to buy gas or eat food, the businesses should be informed of who he is and what he’s up to.
For some reason...I think this section of southwest Virginia...is kinda like north Alabama or eastern Kentucky...and the Phelps gang will meet a reality that they really didn’t expect. The best thing to do is simply take Phelps guys out into the boonies of Virginia and tar them up real good. They will survive the experience but I doubt if any minister could ever talk them into another field trip. From what I hear....tar is fairly cheap these days. And it applies just like it did in the 1800s. And it don’t come off too well when it turns cooler.
Fred Phelps' funding comes from the taxpayers.
His modus operandi for years was staging offensive protests, getting arrested and then suing the police and municipal governments for infringing his free speech rights.
He has been living off judgments for over thirty years.
The goal of these protests is for the women and children he sends to be injured so he can sue and make more money.
He has never protested a military funeral in person, because he is a physical coward who is afraid of being injured.
The last adult male Phelps associate who protested a funeral had the living Phelps kicked out of him and spent months in a hospital.
So he sends out women and kids in the hopes that they will be injured badly enough to win another windfall judgment. Phelps, although disbarred for malfeasance, was once a very sharp lawyer.
If society does have these mass murderers to occasionally contend with, why oh why can’t they visit this bunch of kooks?????
