"Fred Phelps, the founder of the Westboro Baptist Church, has died at the age of 84, according to two of his children.

His son, Timothy Phelps, confirmed to Kansas' WIBW that Fred Phelps died "before midnight" on Wednesday. His daughter, Shirley Phelps-Roper, also confirmed news of the death to the Topeka Capital-Journal."

Ironically is also international day of happiness today.

George takei said words people should take to heart

"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."

Agreed

Good Ol' George Takei

Although I'm sure there will be plenty of people who will do the opposite

Hey, the guy died excommunicated from the church that was basically his life.

Kind of sad, if not deserved.

An eloquent, humanistic response. I'd expect no less from an ex Star Trek cast member.

Fuck it still celebrating today! Good thing this happened on my day off!

It's too bad, he did so much good in his life. A modern day Mother Theresa taken from us just like princess diana in that tunnel.

#15 Posted by wis3boi (31304 posts) -

I wish no harm or death upon just about anybody, but at the same time I'm glad he's gone, because the harm he caused to others can slow/stop. He wasted the one life he had by being a gigantic asshole and he won't be missed

#16 Posted by plageus900 (1046 posts) -

All I know is...

He was a Democrat.

#17 Posted by Serraph105 (27986 posts) -

I agree with Takai on this.

#18 Edited by coasterguy65 (5935 posts) -

Personally I sort of expected him to die after being pummeled into the ground at the hands of some soldier's father, but I doubt the world will miss him. Hopefully there is a hell so that he is burning in it. Piece of shite.

Good riddance

#20 Edited by BeardMaster (1580 posts) -

Pretty happy about it, im liberal... but not so liberal i cant revel in the death of an a-hole.

#21 Edited by ad1x2 (5577 posts) -

@wis3boi: That is unlikely because for the most part his daughter was already running day to day operations of the church.

Other than that, I just might drive to Topeka for the funeral to see how many protesters show up.

I've received some good news today (unrelated to this). Happiness Day is really true!

Yeah, but isn't a negative just a positive in waiting? You either do or do not, there is no try.

#36 Edited by Randolph (10503 posts) -

I mostly agree with Uncle George about this. But I really can't help but be a little happy that he's dead. I'm of the firm view that at times, the world really can be made a better place through the death of certain people. I definitely do not think anyone should protest his grave site or mock/deface it though. That would actually be a victory for him. Take a drink, say "good riddance" and forget about him. That's the best thing we can do.

This whole organization is nothing but scummy hate mongering assholes. Hopefully with his passing Westboro further falls into obscurity.

Fuck that.

Wow, dude, I really pity you.

Anyone who insists their family picket soldier's funerals deserves the worst humanity has to offer, because they are the worst humanity has to offer.

The worst that humanity has to offer, so you hope they burn in hell?

Sounds like something Fred Phelps would say, is all I'm saying.

I don't care or need you to pity me. There are some people that exist on this earth that shouldn't. Now there's one less.

#47 Posted by sonicare (53465 posts) -

I like that George Takei statement. It's never good to take joy in another's suffering or passing, no matter how much you dislike them. Otherwise, you lose your own sense of values.

#48 Posted by chernoalpha527 (160 posts) -

People should picket his funeral, give those assholes a taste of their own medicine.

#49 Posted by -Sun_Tzu- (17384 posts) -
