The scumbag best known for picketing the funerals of fallen American troops and celebrating 9/11 is now dead.
TOPEKA, Kan. — According to several media sources, Fred Phelps, founder of Topeka-based Westboro Baptist Church, passed away Wednesday night.
WIBW-TV in Topeka said one of his sons confirmed Phelps died before midnight.
Phelps Sr., whose church is widely known for its anti-gay sentiments and protests at military funerals, was being cared for in a Shawnee County facility, according to Westboro Baptist Church spokesman Steve Drain.
Members of the church frequently protest at funerals of soldiers with signs containing messages like “Thank God for dead soldiers” and “Thank God for 9/11,” claiming the deaths are God’s punishment for American immorality and tolerance of homosexuality and abortion
