Westboro Asks Public Not to Picket Phelps Funeral

You got some splaining to do you crotchety old fool.

You got some splaining to do you crotchety old fool.

Bye Bye..

Bye Bye..

The controversial Westboro Baptist Church has asked the public not to picket the funeral of its founder, Pastor Fred Phelps, who died this week at 84,and “have a little decency and respect” for his family and friends.

In a statement posted on its website, the Topeka, Kan.-based church – home to America’s most hated family – claimed members of the public have threatened to protest Phelps’ funeral just as the church protested the funerals of others.

“This is a very difficult time for us,” the statement reads, “so we ask that the public have a little decency and respect by allowing us to mourn a great man who served God and tried to protect America from the threat of fags and perverts (i.e. gays and U.S. soldiers).”

The outspoken Pastor Fred Phelps, a former civil rights attorney, headed the Westboro Baptist Church since 1955, breaking away from mainstream Baptist churches to espouse his bigoted interpretations of the Bible.

The church has attracted widespread controversy for espousing homophobic rhetoric and for protesting at the funerals of U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Church members typically carry inflammatory signs and claim the deaths are God’s punishment for the United States’ tolerance of homosexuality.

The 40-member church, primarily consisting of Phelps’ family members, has also protested the funerals of celebrities, public officials and murder victims, including victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings, Apple founder Steve Jobs and murdered gay student Matthew Shepard.

Shirley Phelps-Roper, a church spokeswoman and Phelps’ daughter, said she was concerned people outside the church would try to picket the funeral service.

“It would be in extremely poor taste if someone were to protest my father’s funeral just because they disagreed with him,” she said. “Everyone is entitled to respect in death. What monster would go out of their way to upset my family when we’re grieving?”

Phelps-Roper dismissed the claim that the church’s unusual request is hypocritical, given the members have picketed the funerals of U.S. soldiers and murder victims.

My father was a great man who did no harm to anyone,” she said. “So what if he beat his own wife and children? Doesn’t any good, loving fatherdo that?”

Yep Old Fred is Dead!!! Kinda hard not to speak ill of the dead, but…Oh well let’s just say he’s got some splaining to do I think. Yikes!

Just so you know , and don’t have a stroke or pop a blood vessel from reading, the story the way written by the Daily Currant is a bit of SATIRE.  OK?   LOL                 ~Steve~

  1. Well, he certainly had his 15 minutes of fame, over and over, ad nauseam. Many thanks for this, Steve, it was the start to my day! Glad I didn’t have my coffee in hand at the time….

     
  2. It would make more sense to me if they protested at the funerals of bankers who instigated and profited from wars they started rather than soldiers who gave their lives trying to serve their country.

     
  3. See ya Freddy, don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out

     
  4. I sometimes wonder about the circumstances under which a person will choose a path of contentiousness like Fred Phelps did. Was there a unique instance that inspired a life defining moment whereupon for all intents and purposes a path was proscribed, personal resources marshaled and a life long commitment was established? What if a loving friend, a close confidante had interceded on his behalf and had provided the guidance and support he needed to overcome his phobias, face his demons of prejudice and accept people for what they are rather than how they behave?

    Then I think, “Nah,he was just an a%%hole,” and go back to watching the NCAA championship series.

     
  5. Here’s how much empathy and respect I have for Freddy and his “friends and family:

     
  6. Well he was certainly used, though I wouldn’t say of God, but rather by those with a hatred for Christianity, his example is often pointed to for the purpose of making Christianity look bad… if he wasn’t an active disinformation agent, then he was certainly badly misguided, and useful for the purposes of evil, heres hoping he came to know the Real Christ at the end of his days, and rejected the merciless fear mongering mockery he was trained to tout.

     
    • humble observer

      “..if he wasn’t an active disinformation agent..” I wouldn’t be surprised at all to find out he was conintel, and the whole WBC was set up as a psy-op. Just doesn’t add up otherwise, that a penny-ante little “church” would garner nat’l coverage, almost from it’s humble beginnings.
      I remember hearing Shirley Phelps call in to a local ‘morning zoo’ radio show in Atlanta years ago, more than once, only to be ridiculed by the hosts. Her unhinged rants made me cringe, as I could only imagine how many souls she was alienating, while posing as a Christian. Not once did they mention her “church” having only a few dozen members (perpetrators).
      It sounded totally contrived, much like everything surrounding this bunch.

       
  7. “The 40-member church”

    Good grief. So small a faux Christian “church” managed to provoke so much notoriety, ill-will, and bad press for Christians.

     
    • EXACTLY why this whole misbegotten entity was a non-starter for me from the time I first heard of it. I thought then it was perhaps a satire from “The Daily Onion”. I guess it’s life imitating some strange art, or should I say “Death imitating…”? With friends like this, who needs enemas?

       
    • Ummm…did you notice the thumbs-down? Looks like a Westboro Military Funeral Debaucher and Denigrator is still active….and can’t take as good as he/she gave. I still stand….As much as Fred Phelps did NOT respect the choices and the sacrifices of our fallen military men (and the grief of their families)….I do not respect the choices of Fred ( and the grief of his followers). Thanks Dr. E for a forum of free expression…. I guess that’s why we’re all here in the first place. But, just making sure the fringes understand that it goes both ways.

       
  8. Fred id dead, but if you read to end as I suggested it was Satire from
    The Currant.com. LOL

     
  9. Let’s see how long this group lasts without its leader.

     
  10. TD, They are all worse then the next. This is but a hiccup in the road to hell.

     
  11. This old man surely suffered from sinility and was severely disillusioned at his old age. It is hard to forgive a man who lived his life doing the things that he did. But then again, Jesus forgave those who spat, cursed,and crucified Him on a cross to die for nothing too. He was trying to give us an example of what forgiveness is all about. No matter how guilty Fred was, it is not our place to condemn him, it is God’s place to judge him only. After all, we are all sinners too. And we all want to be forgiven as well when we die and go meet Jesus in Heaven don’t we? yes. Fred has a lot of explaining to do, but he has very little hope in the end I am afraid, so let it be.

     
  12. I’m guessing he didn’t exactly bust the Pearly Gates wide open.

    -I doubt he even got to see them.

    -Dave
