I discovered the twitter account of Megan Phelps and while its comically absurd, it still fills me with rage. I'm not interested in sounding compassionate or enlightened when it comes to these people so bare with me.
Most people know about the Westboro Baptist Church and how they're awful people, I mean real human garbage. So I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that I hope horrible things happen to those people.
They're a perfect example of how powerful indoctrination is and how easily evil gets passed from generation to generation. The church's 70 or so members are pretty much composed of the Phelps family and you'd almost feel sorry for the children if they weren't such evil little bastards.
I wonder if when Fred Phelps dies if people will protest his funeral like he's done to so many fallen soldiers with signs that say "Thank God Fred Phelps is dead." If I happen to be in Topeka, KS when he dies, I'm down.
People that believe in Hell have different opinions about what its like. Some say its simple non existence and others (like the Phelps') believe its an eternal burning pit of anguish (because their god is a loving god). My only complaint is that the Phelps' hell probably doesn't exist for them to go to.
This is sounding really mean. Perhaps a lighter touch is what the Phelps family needs. Let me try.
I hope Fred Phelps and every other asshole in his family get caught in gay love affairs and contract HIV. I hope their suffering is great and lasts a long time. If there is any justice in this world that is what will happen.
