Anti-gay jackass Fred Phelps, founder of the Westboro Baptist “Church” and “Gods Hate Fags” infamy, is near death according to a Facebook post Saturday night by his son Nathan Phelps, who left the church and his family’s compound in 1976 when he was 18. He writes:
“I’ve learned that my father, Fred Phelps, Sr., pastor of the “God Hates Fags” Westboro Baptist Church, was ex-communicated from the “church” back in August of 2013. He is now on the edge of death at Midland Hospice house in Topeka, Kansas. I’m not sure how I feel about this. Terribly ironic that his devotion to his god ends this way. Destroyed by the monster he made. I feel sad for all the hurt he’s caused so many. I feel sad for those who will lose the grandfather and father they loved. And I’m bitterly angry that my family is blocking the family members who left from seeing him, and saying their good-byes.”
Nathan was the 7th of thirteen children who have left Westboro. He has been a vocal LGBTQ advocate, and speaks out against the dangers of religion and child abuse. The sign his father is holding says, “FAGS DIE GOD LAUGHS” – wonder what his God will do when HE dies? (via LQBTQ Nation)
