Today, Fred Phelps, founder of the Westboro Baptist Church, died at 84 years old.

http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/20/us/westboro-church-founder-dead/index.html

Couldn't think of a better person for it to happen to. Yes, yes, I know we should respect the dead, not speak ill of them, etc.

But for this piece of garbage, I will gladly make an exception.

I don't care how he died, there is no way he suffered enough.

I shall wail in mourning. He's gone where the goblins go.
Someday, joor goin' to see the name of Googie Gomez in lights and joor goin' to say to joorself, "Was that her?" and then joor goin' to answer to joorself, "That was her!" But you know somethin' mister? I was always her yuss nobody knows it! - Googie Gomez

CNN didn't say. But if you need proof of justice on Earth, know this - Hitler shot himself. Fred Phelps died in hospice. Mr. Rogers died of stomach cancer. Few people get the death they deserve.

I think the best way for people to deal with his death is completely not acknowledge it. It won't happen, but if we all could just pretend he never existed..... I also wonder if this is the beginning of the end for Westboro Baptist Church. Doubt it, but one can hope.

It's amazing how this guy protested our military's funerals. My wife is a military officer and his group tried to get close to a funeral in Carson City a few years ago. Thankfully, a large bikers organization kept them at bay and all went peacefully for the honored soldiers.

Hell is too good for that man. Feet up eternally choking in a deep, fecal mud puddle is about right. Best death since OBL. If there is such a thing.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Iowa governor Tom Vilsack made a law that protesters like WBC had to stay back something like 1000 ft.

Anybody want to go protest at his funeral?

As I recall, they were more than 1000 feet away and didn't make a sound.
