Heath Legder's Funeral To Be Protested By Fred Phelps

You're probably already exhausted by the endless Heath Ledger-related posts in the blogosphere today, but this tidbit warrants mention. Anti-gay publicity whore Fred Phelps is proving to be Satan's favorite once again, making plans to protest Ledger's funeral. This, from a Phelps quote reprinted on Queerty:
Heath Ledger thought it was great fun defying God Almighty and his plain word; to wit: God Hates Fags! & Fag Enablers! Ergo, God hates the sordid tacky, bucket of slime seasoned with vomit known as ‘Brokeback Mountain’ - and He hates all persons having anything whatsoever to do with it.

Heath Ledger is now in Hell, and has begun serving his eternal sentence there - beside which, nothing else about Heath Ledger is relevant or consequential.

I've been dealing with Phelps' bullshit for two decades now, and even I'm speechless at this craven publicity stunt. You?

I'm wondering if this may, finally, be when the Phelps scam finally jumps the shark... (I say scam because the whole Phelps operation is funded by lawsuits against law enforcement and city governments for violating their civil rights when staging their protests.)

Protesting the Ledger funeral is offensive, evil, and dumb all at once. Whoever didn't already loathe them (a) for funeral bashing Matthew Shepard or (b) for protesting soldier's funerals will now.

The whole debacle demonstrates how much the the tiny Phelps cult is now defined as much by famewhoring as by any misapplied Christian fundamentalism or rampant inbreeding.

I hold a firm belief that every dirty dog will have his day, sooner or later. And Phelps is one of the dirtiest dogs there is. I'm also patient when it comes to things like this. The day will come.

this is not a knock on modfab which i always love but I've read this in so many places today that i just have to say

he keeps doing this because it works. he gets attention.

he's one of the most vilest people who ever lived certainly... but the media only encourages him by covering his antics every damn time

and i should probably add: i'm SO surprised that nobody has killed him yet.

I keep expecting that to happen given that he spreads such misery to so many places

It isn't just Phelps. You have, of course, heard about John Gibson making light of Ledger's death, right? Disgusting. When even Joe Scarborough is saying you've gone too far, you've gone too far.

How is it that these Kansas twisteds even know how to find their way outside the borders of their state, anyway?

After protesting the funerals of our soldiers, haven't they figured out yet that they've painted themselves into a very tiny corner of their own state?

Evidently, Phelps and his hatemonger posse have taken Kansas' motto to heart: Ad astra per aspera, which means, To the stars with difficulty.

There isn't much that hasn't already been said in this string that I could add to. I concur with every sentiment. That being said, I'll restate Nathaniel's question; Why hasn't anyone taken this sick fuck out yet?

Other than that, I think Fred Phelps (who demonstrates at every military soldier's funeral) lost site of the fact that these soldiers and the previous generations fought for his very right to say asinine things in public. Try your bullshit in China and see how far that gets you.

Is this the first time Phelps' mutants will go up against A-list security? I hope it is -- and I hope the bodyguards and staff for the funeral are retired Blackwater operatives.

Force by force... evil, for evil. Hell, I hope the paparazzi stomp them for getting in their sight lines.
