Fred Phelps Has Passed Away


Recommended Posts


Fred Phelps, the founder of the Westboro Baptist Church, has died at the age of 84.

His son, Timothy Phelps, confirmed to Kansas' WIBW that Fred Phelps died "before midnight" on Wednesday. His daughter, Shirley Phelps-Roper, also confirmed news of the death to the Topeka Capital-Journal.

A spokesperson for the Westboro Baptist Church was not immediately available for comment.


R.I.P. to this godly man, whose life objective was to rid the world of homosexuals & fag enablers  :'(


Please buy Fuck You by Lily Allen to commemorate Fred Phelp's death <3

I saw this on facebook today, what's your opinion on it? It's all 100% true.

Or we could stop hating altogether and act like we had a brain and celebrate his life before he lost his mind!! DUH..You know the guy who was MLK, before MLK was on the scene? The guy that damned near took down Jim Crow single handedly? The guy that had a bounty on his head from almost every Klan leader in the deep south where he was working? There is plenty of history documenting the gallant civil rights worker that once was Fred Phelps. (Wiki doesn't even touch the surface) His declining mental health and erratic behavior led to his eventual disbarment as an attorney, he eventually slipped into oblivion and re-surfaced as the Fred Phelps that everyone knows today. Go ahead on and make silly remarks and keep hating, it's much easier to act like the person that he eventually became than to give thanks for the person that he once was.

Idk if it's true or not, but I read on facebook that he was excommunicated from his church in August because he was starting the question the church's agenda. He didn't want to protest gays or dead soldiers anymore & his family wasn't there with him while he died.

It's true that he was exiled from his church, but they haven't publicly stated their reasoning behind it yet. As for all that stuff about him being a civil rights visionary, it's definitely true and of course we should all be thankful for that. But we're not celebrating the death of the man he used to be, we're celebrating the death of the man he was when he died. I don't see what the problem is with that?

Have you guys seen some of the people on tumblr though? He did do some awful things but the people on that site seem to forget that he was also a person. Tumblr says awful things about everyone anyway but they are getting out of hand TBH

Right? :stretcher: Remember when Jennifer Lawrence said like one thing they didn't like and suddenly all the people who had been obsessed with her for years and reblogging her every word turned on her like overnight? That entire website and it's culture is ridiculous tbqh.
