It appears that good ol' Phred Phelps...

...and his crew of shrieking God-botherers are planning on stinking up the fresh air of Tennessee again in the near future.

I have only one thing to say: Methinks he doeth protest too much.

You mean God-impersonators, right?

So I don't get it... Are the guys on either side of him comrads, or mockers?

Either way, I'm sure that the only reason he hasn't been killed yet is that God is setting up some very gory and/or humorus way for him to die.

I had a run-in with a similar retard, shifty-acting gaybasher who almost got shot for acting extra-creepy...these people are either off their meds or were issued by manufacturer without the CPU firmware.

This guy again? Yeesh. He's even worse than the regular street-corner "you'll burn in hell sinner!" type. I love to get their goat when they start reading aloud to those who don't care. I ask them if they would please read my favorite piece of scripture.

Fred and his church--well, it is mainly his family--forgot to read the Bible. God is love.

From 1 John 4: Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.

Fred Phelps probably regards the heights of excesses by the Church during the Dark Ages with fondness.

"A good left hook makes for a right fine wife. Brethren, they can lock us up, but we'll still do what the Bible tells us to do. Either our wives are going to obey, or we're going to beat them!" from a sermon given by Fred Phelps.

He's a critter.

I mean, the guy is so freaking perfectly nutty, how can anybody possibly caricature him? He is his own self-referential caricature. Can you imagine some poor SNL comic trying to lampoon him in a sketch? He couldn't possibly say anything loonier than Phred's own actual words.
