Fred Phelps, the founder of the controversial cult “Westboro” which picketed the funerals of troops, gays and other people as well as presented the idea that “God hates Fags” and pretty much everyone, has died.

He was reportedly on the brink of death and was even excommunicated from the cult he founded for apparently making the suggestion that they present a kinder tone.

Phelps death I think is unfortunately being celebrated in many LGBT communities.  He seemed to have had a fixation with gay people to the point of harassment.  Granted, the LGBT are known to be social bullies, but Phelps cult went a bit too far in claiming God hates people.  Phelps not only harassed the LGBT, but troops and the Catholic Church as well.  His followers would protest funerals of fallen troop with displays that were truly disgusting.  He would blame AIDs, disasters and other things on the troops, gays and others.

Fred Phelps may have been a mentally disturbed individual, but he is still a child of God.  We must forgive his displays of immaturity and anger.

We may never know why he held so much hate in his heart to the point of founding a cult that expounded on it.  Nevertheless, we should not celebrate his death but learn from it.  Our lives are short and we will be judged by God.  We must make the best of it by living as Christ taught us; namely to love one another and forgive one another.

I won’t presume to know where Phelps ended up, whether heaven, hell or purgatory.  This is God’s job, not mine.  We don’t know if he reconciled with God in his last moments of life on Earth. Moreover, he seemed to have wanted his cult to change hinting that maybe he himself was having a conversion.

May God have mercy on his soul and may he finally rest in the peace he never found on Earth.
