A far-right fundamentalist christian
church in Topeka, Kansas headed by Fred Phelps
. Think Pat Robertson
cranked up to 11. They are notorious for the "God Hates Fags
" campgain. To show their message, they select funerals of US troops who died in Iraq
to picket, saying that these kids got killed as punishment for America's failure to persecute homosexuals. They first made the headlines when they went to the funeral of hate-crime victim Matthew Sheppard
with signs saying "Matt In Hell
" and other messages. If there's ever a disaster in the world, you can bet your ass that they will have something to say. Whenever they demonstrate, little kids as young as 6 can be seen brought along to hold signs by their parents.
After the asian tsunami
the statement was that it was a "blessing from God." Somehow the idea was worked in that it was set up at a time that it would kill alot of Swedish tourists, because apparently Rev. Phelps has something against Scandinavia.
During the disastrous 2005 hurricane season, the church celebrated with signs like "Kudos Katrina
" "Welcome Wilma" "Bring it on Beta" etc.
Also, the US casualties of the war on terror
? The 3000 victims of the september 11
terrorist attacks? Martin Luther King
and Corretta Scott King
? The 14 guys who died in that coal mine
? Every last Catholic
on Earth? Reggie White
? The Pope
? Mr. Rogers
? Yup, they're all in/going to Hell.
Oh, here's a fact! Phelps' 200 church members may only marry within the church. The catch is, it's made up entirely of relatives of either Fred or his wife. Hey, there's more than one way to keep the gene pool
Remember, kids, who would Jesus
