Fred Phelps (November 13, 1929 to March 19, 2014) has passed away. Known primarily for his public defense of atheism and laughing mockery of all things religious, “Pastor” Phelps is fondly remembered by his family and the thousands of friends he made all over the world.
Phelps was always the first to point out that Christianity was an intolerably backwards, cruel and foolish belief system, be it based on the Bible (mainly among Protestants) or on tradition (mainly among Catholics). “There’s no erasing two thousand years of history,” Phelps said in one his final interviews. “And there’s no erasing the Bible. That invisible monster that lives in the sky, that mean old nobody named Gaaaaahd, used to do all the killing of homosexuals but later on he delegated the job to us to kill all homosexuals. He even had his pit boss Jaaaaaaysus confirm we’re supposed to kill all homosexuals today. That’s what the Christians did all the way up to when the secular world looked them in their piggy little eye and went BOO! Oh, then they ran around and talked about being persecuted for their beliefs – until they started crowing that they were the ones that were defenders of civil rights. Just like how they were for slavery until they were against it.”
“Any Christian who says he is not bound and commanded by his loving Gaaaaahd to kill homosexuals, hold slaves, oppress women, set children on fire, hate Jews and forget how to count, well, he’s either an ignorant son of a bitch or a god damn liar. Either way, fuck ‘em.”
