    Default The Miserable End Of The Miserable Fred Phelps



    From the Facebook page of Nathan Phelps, who left the family business decades ago, and is now an atheist:


    Ive learned that my father, Fred Phelps, Sr., pastor of the God Hates Fags Westboro Baptist Church, was ex-communicated from the church back in August of 2013. He is now on the edge of death at Midland Hospice house in Topeka, Kansas.


    Im not sure how I feel about this. Terribly ironic that his devotion to his god ends this way. Destroyed by the monster he made.


    I feel sad for all the hurt hes caused so many. I feel sad for those who will lose the grandfather and father they loved. And Im bitterly angry that my family is blocking the family members who left from seeing him, and saying their good-byes.

    And so it ends. Can you imagine having come to the end of your life, very nearly to the moment in which you will meet your God and be reckoned with, and all you have to show for it is that? Ive always thought the Westboro Baptist Church people were despicable, but there is something about the thought of that old man lying on his death bed, forsaken, the victim of his own sins, that makes me pity him. One tear of repentance from the vicious old preacher will open the floodgates of the divine mercy he spent his life trying to deny to others. I pray for that tear.


    And I hope no one pickets his funeral, giving to his family the mercy they do not deserve.

    I think a fitting end would be for a traveling revue of "Priscilla Queen of the Desert" to burst into his room and writhe all over his helpless frame while he still has some awareness of it.

    It's a level of fabulousness he hasn't earned, but the horror he would be experiencing would make up for it.

    Default Ex Westboro Baptist Church leader Fred Phelps is on his deathbed

    Ex-Westboro Baptist Church Leader Fred Phelps is Finally Dying

    Fred Phelps, the one-time leader of the infamous "GOD HATES FAGS" church, is on his deathbed in Kansas. Hopefully, you can carry on with your day having learned of this terrible news.

    Phelps' son Nathan, who left the church in 1980 and now lives in Canada working on behalf of LGBT rights, posted on Facebook late last night that his father is dying in a hospice in Topeka.

    I've learned that my father, Fred Phelps, Sr., pastor of the "God Hates Fags" Westboro Baptist Church, was ex-communicated from the "church" back in August of 2013. He is now on the edge of death at Midland Hospice house in Topeka, Kansas.

    I'm not sure how I feel about this. Terribly ironic that his devotion to his god ends this way. Destroyed by the monster he made.

    I feel sad for all the hurt he's caused so many. I feel sad for those who will lose the grandfather and father they loved. And I'm bitterly angry that my family is blocking the family members who left from seeing him, and saying their good-byes.

    The legacy Phelps will leave is of having turned his religion into a sideshow, and of having made the notion of the protest a farce. We may never know the extent to which Phelps realized that his church moved the "cause" backwards, or whether he even gave a shit.

    But we know that above all the Westboro Baptist Church loved attention, and now its ex-leader will die quietly as the world spins uninterrupted.

    Or just ignore him and give him the nothingness he deserves.

    Oh me too. What could he have done to be thrown out? I can't find anything on it either.
