Talk:Fred Phelps

What a shock old Fred will have when he reaches his beloved Pearly Gates and God says to him, "No, no, NO - you've got it all wrong. Join your friends Saddam and Adolf in the Place Below - for ever. Goodbye".


=no heart at all i wish i could slaphim have you seen his slogans? it is as if he hates everyone but himself. has he no compassion? people died because of hurricane Katrina, but all Phelps wanted to do was laugh and mock those who were victims of it. perhaps someday, he will know the sorrow of those who lost their lives due to war and national disasters.

Perhaps, but don't hold your breath.

Protection[edit]

I assume there's protection for the wikiquote articles, too. Anyway, I don't trust half these quotes, and maybe there should be a lock.Kniobo 01:19, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Most of the quotes are sourced now. 15.211.169.107 00:23, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Help needed: to find links to official videos[edit]

I am including Youtube links as references (just to prove that Fred Phelps did say what we claim he said). However, since Youtube is not the best reference (since anyone can create spoofs and Youtube poops), if we can find links to the official videos, then that will be great.

Help needed: Positive quotes regarding Fred Phelps[edit]

I can only find negative quotes regarding Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church. If anyone can find positive quotes about him, then please add. (Would be a challenge, since everyone hates the old cracker.) Micasta 02:54, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Archive of Signs[edit]

I am archiving the section "Signs Carried by the Westboro Baptist Church" here. These signs reflect the sentiments of the WBC as a whole, and are not necessarily quotes by Fred Phelps. Unless Fred Phelps himself said these, then we cannot place these in the Fred Phelps quote page. Furthermore, not all of these signs have been verified with official references (e.g. news articles).

Concerning Snyder v. Westboro Baptist Church[edit]

  • “The United States of America put the Westboro Baptist Church on trial for our deeply held religious beliefs – a thing that has never before, in the history of this nation, been done. [They] put us on trial for what we truly, deeply believe. They don’t like it. They said in effect that if our preaching offended anybody, they could sue us – and get $10 million: ‘I don’t like that preaching. Sue!’
  • “Mind you, in the New York Times v. Sullivan case, [the courts] said that in political debate, speech can be robust, wide open, and uninhibited – for political debate! How much more so for...old time gospel hellfire and damnation preaching? – Sermon, November 4, 2007
