I wish I could, but I have hate for that man, and I will let it out! Think of all the lives he has ruined. He doesnt desirve any sort of pleasantry, if that takes me down to his level so be it. Eye for an Eye. I hope people take a fat dump on his grave too. Thats just me. I usually take the high road, but not this time.


I do understand - that's why I included my last sentence in my post saying I understand the sentiment. And I hope I'm not coming across as thinking I'm better than anyone or anything like that, because I don't feel that way... I just think there is enough hate and anger in the world already. You are wasting precious moments of your life on hate - moments that are now gone!

Maybe instead of wasting your valuable time on feelings of hatred for this guy, instead we should all show some love for those he tried to persecute... perhaps a donation in his name to some LGBT organization! Wouldn't that be awesome if we all did that! The hate-speech spewed by him could be turned into a lot of charitable donations in his name to the very organizations he hated!

I was hoping his death wouldn't turn into a 3 ring circus...but I was wrong.

I guess there are those who look for any opportunity for their 15 mins of fame...even at the bottom of the barrel....

In all fairness, if you read the linked article I posted, Phelps and the WBC protested at the funeral of the bands former guitarist. It seems only fair that they return the courtesy.

Instead of an eye for an eye, I like to think of it as the Universe balancing itself out.

It's too bad that droves of the LGBT people & others couldn't just go to
the funeral & not protest. They should be there welcoming everyone in
a peaceful manner showing more class & respect for all life.I think if
you're trying to get their goat that would more so than a protest.
Just my 2 cents.

Cheers

I find it interesting that Phelps was a life-long democrat who tried to run for office several times.

Just a little tidbit for everyone.

According to his daughter Margie, there will be no funeral. Guessing that already know how it will turn out. Completely deserved I think....not being able to have a funeral for fear of protesters. I think this is the most fitting thing of all. Being put in the ground with nobody to care. Either way, hope they bury him somewhere very private because his grave is sure to be vandalized on a daily basis for a while.

And Ted Bundy was a republican, this got nothing to do with the most dominant traits of the individual so its irrelevant in this thread, i dont think he being a democrat made him do what he did in life, leave politics out of this as its not related.

I think he is pointing out how odd it is for a democrat to be so against all the things he is against.....he seems like he would more likely be a republican.

Sure they do...he was protesting in a way that involved politics and media to get more coverage for his campaign. He only chose to publicly protest things that were political movements and hot topics. They happened to involve religion as well. He just chose not to separate church and state....

It goes towards his ideology.

If he'd been GOP, you can bet the house it would have been an issue!

I'm really struggling to understand this hatred that so many people had for Mr. Phelps.

It makes no sense.

R.I.P Fred Phelps, may God grant your soul the humility and compassion that you failed to display in life!

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.
