    I for one feel sorry for the man because he died with all that hatred inside of him, festering like a cancer. I also feel for his son, Paul. He does not feel the same hatred his father felt, in fact, he feels the opposite. However, he loved his father "not for the man he was, but for the man he could have been." These are words he said in a published statement I read in a Daily KOS article. What are your thoughts on this?

    I wouldn't say that, but I would say that he led an unfortunate life.

    No, he didn't have any peace in this life, but then again, he brought stress and strife upon himself.

    James, if you don't want to talk about him, then don't. I'm so sorry that my topic offends you, but the reason we are talking about "some nasty old white guy" is because I wanted the opinions of my peers about him and the things he and his followers have done.

    Welcome back GatekeeperCrow, good to see you back and responding to this Thread:

    Who in the world is Fred Phelps? Has he made national news, or is this a local situation?

    If I remember correctly, he and members of his church would picket military personnel's funerals and Gay rights events! Very National in scope and maybe International ...
