Fred Phelps 1929-2014

Fred Phelps, the founder and leader of the controversial (to say the least) Westboro Baptist Church, whose members have become notorious for protesting at funerals, and for carrying signs saying "God hates fags", died earlier today from natural causes.  Whether anyone plans to protest his funeral is not yet known.

Read the story at CNN, The Kansas City Star, Fox4KC, ABC News and the Chicago Tribune.

    Actually I wouldn't want to be in his shoes now that he has gone in front of the Great Judge (No appeal necessary.) and has his "reward".
