I’m not sure how I feel about this. Terribly ironic that his devotion to his god ends this way. Destroyed by the monster he made.Nathan Phelps • Writing on his Facebook page that his father, Fred Phelps, was excommunicated from his own Westboro Baptist Church last year, and is sitting in hospice care, close to death. The younger Phelps left the church long ago and has since changed his ways; it’s unclear whether (or why) his dad was let go. Either way, Nathan—and other family members who have left the church—isn’t allowed to see his father. “I feel sad for all the hurt he’s caused so many. I feel sad for those who will lose the grandfather and father they loved,” he wrote. “And I’m bitterly angry that my family is blocking the family members who left from seeing him, and saying their good-byes.” source
WBC will picket Mumford & Sons to remind this nation they ought to cast down their false idols and worship the one true God.
From the Westboro Baptist Church’s current schedule of protests, which we aren’t linking to for obvious reasons. (This is not your fault, but mine.) By the way, Vince Gill went all Little Lion Man on the WBC over the weekend, hearing rumors that They Would Wait, They Would Wait for him, and Sigh No More, he made fun of them, piercing through their Babel, which has filled many a White Blank Page.
(Sorry for the Mumford & Sons puns. they’re a good attack vector against hate speech, so I wanted to use as many of them as possible in this post.)
Thanks for clearing that up for us, Shirley.
