Fred Phelps | Westboro Baptist Church

Fred Phelps' Green Thumb...


Who knew that Fred Phelps, the preacher man known best for his horrifically homophobic, xenophobic and anti-US protests, enjoys getting down and dirty in the garden? The name is misspelled, but Jeremy Hooper assures us that the Phelps mentioned in this August 2, 1972 article from the The Hutchinson News is the same one we know and loathe.

  2. Perhaps we should be wary of embracing organic foods. They might cumulate slowly to make even the best and brightest into monsters.

  5. Fred's been an attention-seeking loon his entire life. There's an old Time magazine article from the early 1960s about him lecturing his fellow college students on their morally bankrupt ways.

  6. Fred's participation in this group boggles my mind. I thought he was a clear right-wing member of the Religious Right. He's here with people who are talking about Raja Yoga and reincarnation?!

  7. Well Diogenes, "right-wing member[s] of the Religious Right" have been known to peddle their wares wherever they can find an audience.

  8. ...The central issue with this piece of garbage of a human being is the "attention" part...He has no limits when it comes to getting attention. His choices are skewed to say the least. He is,after all, a lawyer.
    Litigation fees are his and his incestuous family's main income source. He would do anything short of murder(and the show isn't over yet..stay tuned) to rake in some cash.
    He is an instrument of satan himself, not God..... Drolling troll...Go.Away.Now...and suffer while you are at it.As Amada Priestley says.."....that's all"
