Top thirteen insults to Colorado and America by Westboro Baptist Church's late Fred Phelps

Number 11: The Fighters showed them Foos

The Foo Fighters gave the Westboro Baptist nutters a helluva pre-show in 2011 in Kansas City, when the WBC decided it would be a fun time to protest a Foo concert. The band showed up at the pre-concert protest, in the back of a rig truck, dressed in homoerotic hillbilly garb and staged an impromptu performance of their pseudo-country song "Keep It Clean (Hot Buns)." Lyrics including "Driving all night, got a hankering for something/Think I'm in the mood for some hot-man muffins/Mmmm, sounds so fine, yes indeed" drowned out whatever hate-filled crap the Westboros were spewing, and Dave Grohl gave a speech during the song's interlude about gay being okay, ending with "God bless America!"

The WBC is now taking issue with Taylor Swift, since her music is so filthy, tawdry and filled with curse words, sex and violence. Not.

Moore, with Phelps--and the Sodomobile.
Number 10: The Sodomobile

Michael Moore versus the Westboro Baptist Church is such a sumptuous brain-feast of an idea that it should have been a pay-per-view match, and in 1999 Moore organized a homophobia protest for his old show The Awful Truth, inspired by the tragic murder of Matthew Shepard in 1998. He toured the country -- specifically states with antiquated anti-sodomy laws still on the books -- n a pink bus filled with raucous gay men and women named "The Sodomobile," and made a pit stop at the Westboro Baptist Church's compound. Moore introduced Fred Phelps to the Sodomobile, which sent Phelps scuttling back to the safety of his family funny farm -- quickly.

But for a guy who wears a cowboy hat and spends more time thinking about f*ggy stuff than most f*gs, it's possible that if there hadn't been cameras present, he might have hopped in the van and taken a ride.

It's a grave matter.
Number 9: The Satanic Temple turns Fred Phelps's dead mother gay

You know those stories you read in your Facebook feed, figuring that they are from The Onion, then they turn out to be real -- and you are thrilled that they are? The friendly and magnanimous folks in the New York-based Satanic Temple took a road trip on Sunday, July 14 to a Mississippi cemetery, found Fred Phelps's mother's gravesite and held a "Pink Mass" ceremony to celebrate same-sex unions, and posthumously anointed Granny Phelps a homosexual.

Satanic Temple spokesperson Lucien Greaves officiated at the ceremony, while two same-sex couples celebrated their homosexuality at the gravesite -- some snogging was involved -- and Greaves stated, "The Satanic Temple now believes that Fred Phelps must believe that his mother is now gay, in the afterlife, due to our Pink Mass... And nobody can challenge our right to our beliefs."

Photos of the Pink Mass are publicly available on the new Satanic Temple-operated website, westboro-baptists.com, and the Satanic Temple encourages other same-sex couples to post their own photos from similar road trips to the Mississippi cemetery.

Your move, WBC.

You should have kept it classy. I agree with Bree Miller, if you wanted to really stick it to them, you'd have wished him a peaceful journey and left it alone.

the Bible he preached from and the Bible I read are two different books. Mine is of peace and kindness his well you know. I forgive him for his blindness and hateful ways glad I'll never have to hear his hate anymore

I think George Takei said it best. "He was a tormented soul, who tormented so many." We should pity him, and not stoop to his level by picketing his funeral.

There is a special little corner of Hell waiting for him.

What's with the democrat bashing. That's no different from FP bullying of gays and people who didn't fall in line with his beliefs. We have to be careful with our words toward people we have a different opinion from. Lighten up.

If you speak ill of the dead, you're still an asshole. Why stoop to their level?

I have nothing but pity for the guy... I won't celebrate his passing because it wasn't a victory. His life was an example of how not to love. I hope I learn from that and never become it.

To bad he won't get to see all the servicemen and women in heaven since his spot in hell has been reserved for some time now

Hurl his mangy corpse into a drainage ditch, and go get a burrito.

Other than protesting his funeral, he's the one that has to deal with his own death. What else can you do. He's gone

Kelly Roller

He was excommunicated from his church which means like all those picket signs he'll be burning in Hell. A just reward.

The better thing to do is not acknowledge the fact that he even existed. Why continue to display his hatred in print media?

Timothy Hutchinson

I just reminded everybody of that. The bulk of the KKK were Democrats, also.

Bree Miller

everyone that chooses to speak ill of him and picket his funeral is no better than him and his mindless followers.If you really want to stick it to WBC, celebrate by being kind to one another!

Phelps ran for office about a dozen times in Kansas...as a Democrat! He got over 30% of the vote running for the U.S. Senate.

Good riddance! I sincerely hope that hatred of this magnitude dies off quickly so that we can all live our lives without criticism and condemnation.

What is missing from most of the obituaries of Phelps? He was a Democrat! LOL

Show a little compassion. The man was clearly insane.

@Leet Brian "Mine is of peace and kindness"


LOL!
