Update on Offensive Marriage Week:

Fuck You, Mr. Fred Phelps. I say 'Mr.', because your ordination is as much of a pathetic joke as you are.
With many, many thanks to crotalus_atrox for calling my attention to this.

What am I on about? Click here to remind yourself, in case you've forgotten in the intervening 17 days.
  • Thank goodness.

    Now if he'd just go lock himself in his house with no access to the outside world, everything would be good.
    • A friend of mine a while back sent me a book called Good Goats, which gives some interesting perspectives on the Christian God. One of the things the authors noted is that many people who have near-death experiences come back much more peaceful and less hateful. Although they didn't give the guy's name so I can't research further, they mention an evangelical fire-and-brimstone preacher who, after his near-death experience, actually left his religion because he said it went against everything he'd learned about God when he died.

      I would love for phelps to have a similar near-death experience and have to try to undo all of the damage he's done, even if it meant he wouldn't go to a special place in hell.

      Oh, and a special cheer to the folks in Casper. I'm not surprised that they ended up rejecting the monument, but I'm very happy that they did. I hope if the slimebag (or his spawn, since he's been disbarred) doesn't even get to see a day in court if he tries to sue.
  • His group just came out this way recently:


    One thing they are good for though is rallying people together against them.

    • You be appalled and amazed by the article just_the_ash linked into the Defense Of Marriage Week post of my own I included as a link, for context... uhm... that is far too much of a maze.

      here, go read
      Addicted to Hate, By Jon Michael Bell with Joe Taschler & Steve Fry. Amazing article / expose about what a rotten little bastard Phelps is.
      Article brought to my attention courtesy of just_the_ash, to whom all thanks is due.
      • Well, I read the Phelps article.

        I really, truly want to beat that man senseless. Truly. At the very least, for what he did and has done to his own children.

        And the use of the "men will hate you for preaching the truth" scripture as a constant crutch...I think that should be the Bat-signal for a cult. I know that one popped up time and time again when I was little in the JW congregation I was raised in (thank goodness, I'm outta that shit).
  • (no subject) -
    • Invidious. It's what's for breakfast.
      Invidious: the other white meat.

      Hmnnn. I'll come up with something. ;)
