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.

I wonder who'll picket his funeral?
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.
