    Personally I think Fred Phelps must be one of the most sexually frustrated and confused persons on this planet.

    To commit your entire life to hatred of this kind, means somewhere along the line, either he was gay, or someone was gay with him.

    Hate like this doesn't come from no where, it is grown from something.

    Where it came from is anyones guess, since his early life is surely a well kept secret. Perhaps he's a victim of some kind of, male on male sexual assault, or perhaps a self loather, who was brought up to believe that gays were the worst thing ever, and when he discovered he was one, his only response was this.

    It's difficult to say. At the end of the day I actually pity him, to dedicate your life to hate is not something I ever wish to do. Must be a pretty lonely existence.

    Really I couldn't care less, he's made his choice now, the only shame is the kids that have to grow up in his hateful cult.

    Yes and no. It's possible, but not necessarily practical. You couldn't turn off the spigot for Phelps & Co. without affecting everybody else.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Whether or not he is a con artist, he is certainly peddling hate.

    That is what the con-artist option is for. JK. There is the don't know/other option.

    Shouldn't you need more than just your family attending your so-called church to be your congregation in order to be a priest/pastor.It seems to me that they are nothing more than a church in name only in order to get tax exempt status. I could be wrong but I haven't heard of anyone other than family and perhaps close friends attending his church.

    Then it is "high time" for our law-makers to get off their dead arses and do what the people tell them to do!!!!!!
    This is one area where the people know what they are talking about, the sensitivities and respect are paramount at funerals.

    Limit payments. Surely all those libs who claim CEOs make too much money should agree that trial lawyers also make too much money.
