3.18.14 Bee-otch of the Day: Fred Phelps

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on Chuck69.com.



Name: Fred Phelps
Age: 84
Occupation: head pastor, Westboro Baptist Church
Last Seen: Topeka, KS
Bee-otched For: doing something that he should have done years ago

If I needed another reason to hate organized religion, it's because of lowlifes like Fred Phelps.

Phelps is the head of Westboro Baptist Church, based in Topeka, KS which is well-known for their protests at military funerals and banners reading "God Hates Fags" and "God Hates America". His children lead the protests and are often criticized for bad parenting and teaching them hate.

Well, I have some good news: he's dying.

According to his estranged son, Nathan, Phelps is now in a hospice care and is now "on the edge of death". Nathan left both his family and the church on his 18th birthday when he got into his car and drove off. He is now an atheist who lives in Canada and supports gay rights. He's also the author of a book entitled Leaving Westboro: Escaping America's Most Hated Church & Family. In the book, Phelps explains the horrific torture and abuse his father put on him which led to him leaving home.

Nate also claims that his father was ex-communicated from the church last year. Three of his siblings have all verified his claims.

Ya know, Nate's brave for abandoning the monster of a father he had. I think it's pathetic that there's not enough preachers out there that preach love and tolerance and yet, there's Phelps, Pat Robertson and others who claim that homosexuality is destroying the world. The truth is, it's always been around and, well, we're still around.

I know it's not nice to spit on the dying, but Mr. Phelps is an exception. The quicker he dies, the better. It's a sad thing that there's still a huge chunk of his family that will ultimately get the torch from him when he passes, but there's others who were brave enough to leave this loser and to use God's word for what it's intended.

Maybe God will present Phelps with 40 virgins... all 10 inches-plus and VERY hard.
