Default When Fred Phelps dies...

What do you think the public response should be? I can definitely see a massive knee jerk reaction and hundreds of people descending to picket his funeral. And I think that is justifiable. However the classy response would be to leave the funeral alone and let the family grieve (if that is possible) in peace. More difficult, but far superior.

They'll blame gays for his death and picket it themselves. That inbred dyke daughter of his is running things anyway.

Yeah but Fred is the figurehead. I think he is more symbolic of the church than the daughter.

I just watched the Louis Theroux documentary on them. Just amazing how crazy they are lol. But I don't think we should be brought down to their level when it is all said and done.

You are probably right. Why lower ourselves to their level?

I also think the family will want to be picketed, as they tend to like anything that gives them more publicity. Best thing to do would probably be to ignore them.

If picketing the funeral actually got through to them, then I think that it NEEDS to be done. The members of the Westboro Baptist Church have some of the most warped minds of any 'religious' people I've ever seen (and that is saying something).

Unfortunately, I don't think that picketing the funeral would do anything to change the members beliefs/opinions; so I think that picketing would just serve as a 'justice/revenge' factor for all the people whom the church has wronged through their protests.

Regardless, I feel so bad for the kids who are raised in that family. Being subjected to their doctrine of hate from a young age just ruins their chances of developing as a normal human.

Fuck that guy and his family. I hope they all get their funerals picketed with signs reading, "You're going to hell" and "Jesus hates you."

I hope they get picketed but that's stooping to their level.
