A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

God Hates Who Now ???

I note from The Stranger's blog, Slog, that Fred Phelch--sorry--Phelps and his army of @$$#0!3s are planning to roll out the goons and picket another upcoming funeral.

Phelch and his merry band own two websites that have the distinction, alongside Michael Savage (a repressed radio host) of being sites I will not link to. As preacher of Westboro Baptist rat-₤µ©λ Church, Phelch has made a career out of picketing, among others, the funerals of known homosexuals (including beaten-hung-on-a-fence-and-left-to-die-of-exposure Matthew Sheppard), and the funerals of American soldiers killed in the George Bush II sandbox.

Phelps contends that "God hates fags", and because America tolerates them, "God hates America." And he makes this clear at every opportunity. He tried to have a monument erected alongside the Matthew Sheppard monument reading "Matt Sheppard: Dead and in Hell since [date of the murder].

So he's a pleasant sort of chap.

But now he's clearly come even more unhinged. He's disappearing around the bend and those of us that live in this thing we call reality will no longer be able to see him at all.

Because he's out to picket the funeral of Jerry Falwell.

Yeah ... Jerry ₤µ©λing Falwell.

According to Phelps and Phriends he was too nice to homos. First let's briefly revisit the late great Falwell's feelings on gays:
Homosexuality is Satan's diabolical attack upon the family that will not only have a corrupting influence upon our next generation, but it will also bring down the wrath of God upon America.
That is, "God Hates Fags."

Now let's look at Phelps' press release:

There is little doubt that Falwell split Hell wide open the instant he died. The evidence is compelling, overwhelming, and irrefragable. To wit:
1. Falwell was a true Calvinistic Baptist when he was a young preacher in Springfield, Missouri, and sold his soul to Free-Willism (Arminianism) for lucre.

2. Falwell bitterly and viciously attacked Westboro Baptist Church because of WBC’s faithful Bible preaching—thereby committing the unpardonable sin—otherwise known as the sin against the Holy Ghost.

3. Falwell warmly praised Christ-rejecting Jews, pedophile-condoning Catholics, money-grubbing compromisers, practicing fags like Mel White, and backsliders like Billy Graham and Robert Schuler, etc. All for lucre—making him guilty of their sins.

Falwell is in Hell, Praise God!!
It is enough to make me think, very hard. There might be a god after all.

Who else could line up the opinion of Fred ₤µ©λing Phelps with that of Christopher Hitchens? I mean if, as that smarmy liar, fraud, and predatory crook Ralph Reed of the Christian Coalition says, Hitchens' opinion might make the Falwell family cry in their corporate reports, then imagine how this faithful family might feel if Phelps shows up to tell them their dearly departed is in Hell!

If Phelps gets into a shoving match at the edge of the grave, accidentally tumbles into it and is buried alive atop whatever lead-lined box they're storing Falwell in until his Rapture happens, I will take it as a sign and immediately go to confession.

Please God, hear a humble atheist ...

"God hates fags"? But She loves lesbians. :-) Again, the homophobic hate-mongers are so blinded by their own fear of homosexual men that they completely forget about gay women.

Oh no, Phreddie is an equal-opportunity loather. He hates the queer community entire without fear or favour.

I wonder what his stance on cross-dressing straight men is?

For nowhere in the bible sayeth it "Thou shalt not wear thy neighbour's panties, nor yet his high heeled shoes ..." So you'd think they'd be okay.

I won't comment here - I have just been watching Richard Dawkins on the idiot box. His common-sense is so needed in this world of bigots.

I'm not really against religious faith. Just hypocrisy. And so many of the loudest of the allegedly pro-god faction promote things that are so antithecal to what I was taught God wants ...

The words "God hates" were an oxymoron in the household I grew up in.

And I have come to believe that if there is a god, he hates cracker @$$#0!3s using his message to spread their own particular brands of hatred.

Personally, I won't believe Falwell is dead til someone can tell me he was buried with a stake in his heart.

Phelps vs Falwell?

"Mr Falwell was a strong opponent of abortion, homosexuality and many other issues that conflicted with his fundamentalist Christian beliefs. "

US evangelist Jerry Falwell dies

Some serious competition going on here ...

You should check out Louis Theroux's documentary on Phelps and Co. Young girls giggling because they KNOW our sweet little Louis is going to hell.
Grotesque.
