Westboro Baptist Church Founder Likely Won’t Have A Funeral To Protest

Fred Phelps, reportedly on his deathbed, likely won’t have a funeral for anyone to protest. The founder of “God Hates Fags,” aka the Westboro Baptist Church — according to his estranged son Nathan — is in hospice care and near death.

Nathan Phelps in a Facebook post early Monday morning wrote that his father “was ex-communicated from the ‘church’ back in August of 2013.” He added that Fred Phelps is “now on the edge of death at Midland Hospice house in Topeka, Kansas.”

LOOK: Why Was ‘God Hates Fags’ Founder Fred Phelps Excommunicated? You’ll Be Shocked.

Curiously, just last month Phelps’ daughter Margie told the Huffington Post’s Nick Wing that their religion — Primitive Baptist — doesn’t do funerals.

Meanwhile, there’s been a call by many leaders and active voices in the LGBT community to not protest the patriarch’s funeral if there were one, for many reasons.


To not sink to the level of the Phelps clan, to show them that their hatred is not important to America, and to let them wither away as insignificant.

What would you do?

They don't worship the dead?! Are you kidding me?
I wouldn't was one second protesting because they don't deserve the attention. That and giving them the space and time to grieve is showing them the mercy they stole from others.

They're done. Their fifteen minutes are over. Let them do what they want, as irritating as it's gotten. Should we celebrate this bigots death? No. Nor should we mourn his passing. One less mean spirited "christian" in the world.

What would I do? Find out where the mofo is buried; go there, and piss on his grave.

The rules change to benefit the Phelps clan at their whims and/or when the situation calls for it. It isn't a religion. It's sociopathy.

I would pray for peace and healing upon the children who were raised by such a sick, sick individual.
