Party, Protest Or Pass When Major Ass Dies?

“I wouldn’t piss on his face if his head was on fire.”

Fred Waldron Phelps, Sr., founder of the Westboro Baptist Church, in Topeka, Kansas, is said to be near death. Fred’s members would picket high-profile funerals with signs that read “Thank God For Dead Soldiers” and  ”God Hates Fags.

While my initial reaction would be to take a different course, George Takei writes:

I take no solace or joy in this man’s passing. We will not dance upon his grave, nor stand vigil at his funeral holding “God Hates Freds” signs, tempting as it may be.

He was a tormented soul, who tormented so many. Hate never wins out in the end. It instead goes always to its lonely, dusty end.
