Fred Phelps Sr., a fire-and-brimstone preacher whose anti-gay picketing at military funerals inflamed the nation and drew international scorn but was protected by the U.S. Supreme Court as an exercise in free speech, died March 19 at a hospice in Topeka, Kan. He was 84.

His daughter Shirley Phelps-Roper confirmed his death to the Topeka Capital-Journal. The cause was not reported.

Fred Phelps Sr., leader of Westboro Baptist Church, dies at 84

The article is long and have a resume of this individual actions, if you are interested in more information feel free to read the article.

I dont like to say bad things about those that cannot defend themselves anymore so I wont say much, if you dont feel like me i wont stop you either.

I only hope that at some point in our history people just mind their own business and groups like Westboro church were just in the distant past. the world is not a worse place today because the passing of this man that is for sure.

May his family find the comfort they deny to many.

I've been on a little personal time here lately, for anyone wondering why I suddenly became scarce. Elmer Fudd didn't finally score a bullseye. lol...

However, a precious few things are worth a little diversion from much needed time away from bad news, bodies and how they came to be that way.

I said I'd do something when this day came..and I'm a bunny of my word. Even if timing isn't always a pillar to point to for punctuality.

Ahh.. I feel better. No more to say. No more to pile on or add to anything. Just that. Had to get it out. (hands out Fresh carrots to all)

Have a fine day, everyone! It's a bright one out there.

I'm not proud to say it. But, there is part of me, that can't help but imagine. All the people who's funerals he protested, standing at the pearly gates, with protest signs.

Protesting his entering his final resting place. It would be fitting.

I hope no one does. It would give the survivors fuel for their rants.

As a christian that doesn't like to see the Bible twisted and perverted by "people" claiming to be same, and yet knowing I'm supposed to take the high road on matters like this, allow me to say this:

"Be not deceived, for God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." (Gal. 6:7)

Glad I'm not in his shoes.

Seldom am I happy to see someone die. My only wish is that he died in pain, lots of it.

You bet I would picket his funeral.

Seriously? You think he's actually going to make it to the Pearly Gates? He'll never even make it to the same zip code! Express train to hades I'm quite sure. And they'll be bringing out the dull pitchforks for his arrival.

I hope he finally finds some peace.

That's all I'm going to say on the subject.

It might go something like this...

Phelps: St.Peter can I come in?

St. Peter: Hold on Mr. Phelps I will go ask God.

St. Peter: God it's that Phelps guy do you want him here in heaven?

God: Why St. Peter of course I do, let your brother in my Kingdom.

(St. Peter goes to let Mr. Phelps in the pearly gates...A minute later goes running back to God.)

St. Peter: God God they are gone. God God they are all gone.

God: Who is gone Mr. Phelps?

St. Peter : No God the pearly gates, they are gone.

God: I hate that SOB...

As a Christian you should know we're all in the same shoes. Sin is sin is sin.

Hmm.

Fred certainly was a confused little evil man.

I wonder what he'll think of the afterlife he's created for himself. I bet it's pretty dark, bleak and sad.

I deplore this guy's message and tactics as much as anyone. However. those of you dancing on this guy's grave have just succeeded in lowering yourselves to his level. What's the difference, really, between his hate and vitriol and yours? No, you're not "justified" because you think you are superior to him. You really ought to be ashamed.

The thing is, you're next. Death plays no favorites.
