Phelps is a loser

Fred Phelps is a horrible man. Google his name to find out why, if you haven’t heard of him. He protests at soldiers’ graves with “God Hates Fags” and “Pray for more dead kids” posters, because he thinks what’s happening in Iraq is God’s punishment for this country’s tolerance of gays.

He finally got his:

A Baltimore federal jury awarded nearly $11 million Wednesday to the father of a Marine killed in Iraq, deciding that the family’s privacy had been invaded by a Kansas church whose members waved anti-gay signs at the funeral.
[…]
The compensatory damage award alone, $2.9 million, was nearly triple the net worth of Westboro and the three members on trial, their attorney said.

Fred W. Phelps Sr., Westboro’s founder, vowed to appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, in Richmond, Va.

“It’s going to be reversed in five minutes,” he said. This case, he added, “will elevate me to something important,” as it draws more publicity to his cause.

But Fred, you’re already important. You’re an important example of what happens when you let hatred consume you.

  1. I think Anneken Skywalker’s transformation into Darth Vader is a better example of what happens when you let your hatred consume you. We can all hope that Fred Phelps hasn’t mastered the Force. If that happens then we’re in for some serious shit.
