Don't Hate the Sinner...Hate His Innocent Victims?

"Those Amish people, everyone is sitting around talking about those poor little girls — blah, blah, blah — they brought the wrath upon themselves," Phelps-Roper said, adding that the Amish "don't serve God, they serve themselves."

The ugly face of hate-Rev. Phelps


  1. A small point, but wasn't that quote from his daughter? Though, to be fair, she is likely just as ugly as her dad.

  2. It was her and I couldn't find a picture...she is just as ugly, in more ways than one. To be fair, she was speaking for the church, his church.

  3. Yes. This is true.

    Is it even a real church? I mean ... are there services? Somebody told me, I think it was Pat, that it doesn't actually exist as a church. Any insight on this?

  4. From Wikipedia:

    "The house in the center of the compound belongs to Phelps Sr., the basement of which serves as the church "meeting hall" (as he refers to it)."

    "Westboro services, according to its website, are open to the public and begin at approximately 11:30 on Sunday mornings. Phelps Sr. generally preaches for over an hour"

    However, there is a ten foot fence with picketed tops around the "compound" so I'm not sure how the public gets in...and here are quotes from his "sermons" so you decide if it's actually a church!

    "The Lord God Almighty killed [the people who died on 9/11], looked at them in the face, laughed and mocked at each one of them as he cast each one of them into hell".
    "All ye having business before this honorable [Supreme] Court draw nigh, give your attention and ye shall be heard. No, no. Draw nigh and bend over. They're gonna rape you up the butt".
    "The red on that flag stands for fag rectal blood".
    "On Pope John Paul II's watch, the Catholic Church became the church of the holy pedophiles. And sodomite feces replaced the wafer for their communion service. And Sodomite semen replaced the wine that the Pope drinks".

    On another note, is pretty funny.
    and there's too

  5. This would be unbelievably hilarious if it wasn't so scary and real! I don't understand anyone who a) says that "God Hates" X, Y or Z, and b) claims to have the precise knowledge direct from God about what God 'hates." I'm inclined to believe that God, if he exists, doesn't really hate anything but hate, hateful people, and hateful acts. All of which describe The Good Reverend Phelps and his Merry Band of Haters. And he sure seems to be obsessed with the dirty details of gay sex, doesn't he? For someone who finds it so disgusting, he sure is graphically detailed in all the biological and anatomical stuff. You'd think he'd be unable to talk about stuff that so revolted him. Unless......
