Fred Phelps<--Biggest Douche in the World
I feel a great sence of pity for The Phelps Regime/Cult/Family/Group. I am a gay man and have great reason to hate them, but my spritual beliefs of being a Pagan-Witch differ from hate. I believe in Light and Dark, and when I say Dark I don't mean evil. Sure, I would love to see Topeka, drive right up to their compound and sing, make out with my boyfriend (if I had one) as I plan to do in front of The White House in this wonderful last term of Bush. I know that it wouldn't make difference, as The Phelps are in their own beliefs system. I don't agree with anything they preach of course, When Mrs. Shirley Phelps Roper went on Hannitty and Colmes I was outraged. Yet, take a look at these people, as Jeasus says in The New Testmant, love your enimes. They all have this insane twinkle in their eyes. The thing that gives me hope are the children, the little tykes that hold the signs that their parents have they can't understand what they are holding. I hope that the parents don't continue their fathers path of child abuse. I would hate to be there. I give praise to the four children that left, that alone proves there is a gene of sanity in their family.
What worries me about the Phelps is that they are backed by a powerful lawfirm. They know they are safe. In all reality I think it will just get worse. I don't think the "cult" will disban with the death of Fred Phelps. A new leader will surcomb. I think it's sad though. I think about Judy Sheppard. I think about the mothers of the fallen soldgiers. I know one thing though. I don't want these people at my wedding, or my funeral. I cannot hope that they will change. It takes to much of my energy and it's pretty useless letting a 100 people in a population of millions to effect my daily life. That family has been through great pain, and that pain has processed into hate. Truthfully, all I can do is process pity for them. It couldn't be more obvious to say that they are preaching the wrong message, but the wrong attitude as well.
Wow, its been a long time since anyone has posted in this community. I definitely agree with you, and, I can't understand the Phelps crew. I think they've been brainwashed and been taught warped versions of the Bible, and one of these days someone is just going to go and shoot all of them.
I myself am a bisexual female. I'm not Christian, nor am I an Athiest or agnostic... I just have my own beliefs that don't go along with any religion. The Phelps crew came to the funeral of Corey Palmer earlier this year in my town, and people were outraged. I know that everyone has the right to protest, and that denying them that right is against the constitution, but, an ammendment needs to be made. Theres a place and a time for these protests, and its not at funerals, its not at weddings nor schools, its at the whitehouse where President Bush can see it and finally do something about it. Its because of that idiot that we have the war in the first place... No, wait, his daddy told him to go looking for WMDs over in the middle east... And no one can say that 9-11 sparked this, either, because the war is mainly in Iraq, not Afghanistan where the group that attacked the united states in the first place lives!
Sorry... I just get a little politically provoked because I lived in washington, DC for 14 years... It was hell.
I would just like to say that not all of us are total assholes and I'm sorry so many good people get harassed over stupid things.
I was against the war in Iraq/Iran/Afghanistan before we went, but now I think we owe it to the people there to fix everything we screwed up.
I don't think gay MARRIAGE is a right because churches are private institutions and can choose for themselves what to allow, but I think it is a violation of civil rights to deny CIVIL UNIONS.
So, yeah. Phelps pisses me off.
I know not all christians are total assholes, haha...
I totally forgot I wrote that comment... Looking back on it, I probably would have chosen my words a little differently.
