“When you build a group around the personality and politics of a single leader, it’s sometimes difficult to keep that group alive when that leader dies.” – Mark Potok, The Southern Poverty Law Center
The death of one of the most hate-filled anti-gay men in America should stand to usher in a new season of equality and fairness, and hopefully, a gentler time for all.
Fred Phelps, the 84-year old founder of the Westboro Baptist Church, has died.
Fred Phelps, reportedly on his deathbed, likely won’t have a funeral for anyone to protest.
Fred Phelps being on the “edge of death” is not hard to understand, but how could the founder of a church be excommunicated? Here’s some intriguing insight.
Fred Phelps, the founder of the Westboro Baptist Church — which uses the term “God Hates Fags” — “is now on the edge of death.”
Bryan Fischer, the spokesperson for that anti-gay hate group American Family Association, today is claiming “everything you know about Matthew Shepard is wrong.”

The Westboro Baptist Church, who call themselves “God Hates Fags,” are now officially scheduled to picket Wednesday’s funeral of Dawn Hochsprung, the hero principal of Newtown, Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Jonathan Phelps, son of Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps, says that “absolutely” homosexuals — gay men, lesbian women, and bisexual and transgender people — should be put to death.
God Hates Fags announced they will picket the funeral of Philadelphia Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua who died amid sex abuse cases of priests on trial for pedophile rape.
From Tony Perkins to Bryan Fischer to Rick Santorum to Rick Perry to Stacey Campfield, “God hates fags” – the concept – is at the very heart and soul of the Religious Right.
God Hates Fags, aka the Westboro Baptist Church, today posted a photo of their protest at the funeral of former Penn State Coach Joe Paterno.
