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


Number 4: "Westboro Baptist Church protest in Fort Collins to be met with silence," June 23, 2010
An excerpt from a Lambda Center release about a counter-protest: "While we recognize the desire for community members to confront this kind of blatant bigotry and hatred, we are asking that we not give voice to this group by providing them an audience while they are here. Rather we would encourage community members to take this opportunity to show support to those in Fort Collins targeted by their visit:" Andy Stoll, Executive Director, Lambda Community Center. Martin Luther King Jr. said that "darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
Yep, a handful of church members turned up -- but they were far outnumbered by locals with a very different message, synopsized in our post "Westboro Baptist Church protest in Fort Collins countered by somersaults, Thai food." See a sample video below.

Number 3: "Corporal Larry D. Harris to be honored by Bill Ritter, dishonored by Westboro Baptist Church," July 13, 2010.

GOD HATES AMERICA & IS KILLING OUR TROOPS IN HIS WRATH.

Military funerals have become pagan orgies of idolatrous blasphemy, where they pray to the dunghill gods of Sodom & play taps to a fallen fool.

This message to be preached in respectful, lawful proximity to the memorial of Cpl. Larry D. Harris, Jr.

Wed., July 14, at 9:15 a.m.
Rising Star Missionary Baptist Church
1500 S. Dayton Street, Denver, CO

Cpl. Harris gave his life for the Constitutional right of WBC to warn America. To deny us our First Amendment rights is to declare to the world that Cpl. Harris died in vain, and that America is a nation of sodomite hypocrites.

After stirring up fear, the WBC stayed away.

Number 2: "Westboro Baptist Church vows to picket funeral of Kenny McKinley, Bronco who took own life," September 24, 2010.
Doomed American rebels will do ANYTHING other than worship and serve the God who inhabits eternity. One of their many idols is their football teams, which they lavishly pour time and money into, corrupting many. Now the people of Denver stand around sobbing. You're in the house of sorrow because you would not obey -- and foolishly think that money will buy happiness. Kenny McKinley did not benefit from your money; he wallowed in depression, casting aside the interests of his family, including his young son, because he was injured and couldn't play football. How broken is your compass?! WBC has been to Denver and Colorado many times, entreating you to obey God. Your response has been consistently angry and violent. Now, God's wrath abides on you. More and worse is coming, Colorado. GodSmack!
This GodSmack! was not delivered in person.

Number 1: "Westboro Baptist Church: 1,000-plus show up for Durango protest, none from actual church," November 10, 2010.

WBC TO PICKET SCREENING OF "THE ANATOMY OF HATE," AT FORT LEWIS COLLEGE (1000 RIM DRIVE, DURANGO, CO), TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, FROM 4:45-5:30 PM

"Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, & not suffer sin upon him." Lev. 19:17

God Almighty told you what "hate" is: it's your refusal to rebuke proud sin! Keep pretending that preaching the righteous judgments of God against proud rebels is equivalent to violent crimes based on personal ill-will. That hollow lie is obvious on its face, however, and won't change God's verdict on the matter:

"Woe unto them that call evil good, & good evil." Isa. 5:20

YOU'RE GOING TO HELL.

But the WBC didn't go to Durango. Had members done so, they would have seen hundreds upon hundreds of people who disagree with everything for which the "church" stands -- other than the importance of free speech and expression.

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
