Crazy Cult Set to Protest Baker Knoll Funeral

Those krazy kids from Fred Phelp's "God Hates Fags" Westboro Baptist Church are planning to protest today's funeral in Pittsburgh for Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. Catherine Baker Knoll.

According to their website, http://www.godhatesfags.com (yeah, that's the name of the "church's" website), they plan to be all over the Burgh today:

11/25/2008 07:45 AM - 08:30 AM Pittsburgh, PA
Croatia Consulate - God Hates Croatia Croatia 100 Delaney Drive Are you kidding me? Of course God Hates Croatia. They know that the curses of God abide upon them. All these centuries they have gone after false gods, and went about to establish their own form of government, and the whole world knows they are violent beasts in that nation...

11/25/2008 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM Pittsburgh, PA
University of Pittsburgh - God Hates You! Forbes Ave & Bellefield Ave I do not know what their little school calls themselves, I only know that if you are in that evil state - you are nasty...

Here's their press release for the funeral:


Making Jesus proud!

The Westboro cultists have to protest her funeral because if they had tried to protest her when she was alive, she would have kicked their asses back to Topeka:



A counter protest is planned. See here for more information.

I guess "RIP" is out the window.

UPDATE: According to Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondents, "police are on high alert for Tuesday's funeral mass."

CBK was awesome. That WTAE video is funny. Clinton's response was good too.

Sherry said...

geeezzz. i hope when i die they picket. i'll know i've been on the right side of the important human rights issues if they do!

Maria said...

Sherry,

I'm fairly certain that she was anti choice (I don't know what her positions were on LGBT issues).

These cult people will protest anything and anyone to get out their message of hate.

They protest at the funerals of slain soldiers just for the attention.

These people aren't Christians; they're scum.

Sherry said...

they are just so nasty. i wonder, do any of them work at jobs???

i know i've seen them show up at solider's funerals all over the country. how can they afford that?

jaywillie said...

Apparently hate is a full-time job.

Infinonymous said...

There is no nut like a religious nut. It is pointless to attempt to reason with someone to whom the most important evidentiary point is always "because God says so."

And before writing off Phelps as a one-of-a-kind kook, consider that he once received better than 10 percent of the vote while running for governor of Kansas.

Sherry said...

oh , that's scary.

John K. said...

John K: Gee I didn't hear you liberals say a word about this when they picketed military funerals.

Sherry said...

you are a liar. check my blog you will find posts.

John K. said...

John K: The ACLU filed a lawsuit in Missouri on behalf of Phelps to overturn the ban on the picketing of soldiers funerals. ACLU of Ohio did the same. You left wingers did not seem to care about this guy picketing anything till he picketed one of yours. Shame. Shame, Shame.

Maria said...

Yes, JK, soldiers are "yours" exclusively. I'm sure you actually believe this tripe too.

John K. said...

John K: No Maria, LOL What I know is you didn't care a bit about Phelps till he started to protest one of your people. He protested soldiers and you remained silent. The ACLU supported him. Which maks you a hypocrite. See how easy you make it. LMAO

Maria said...

Maria: No John K, LOL What I know is you -- and the rest of the Wingnuts -- didn't care a bit about Phelps when he protested soldiers because Wingnuts dare not say a word against the Religious Right Wing of the Nuttery. Which maks you a hypocrite. See how easy you make it. LMAO

John K: Stop being stupid Maria. F. Phelps hosted a fundraiser for Gore in his house in 1988. Both Al and Tipper attended. Also in 1988 this guy attended the DNC convention as a Gore delegate. However, in May 2006, Bush (the guy you hate) signed a law making it illegal for Phelps and his crew to be within 300 feet of a funeral at a national cemetary within one hour of the funeral. The ACLU defended him. Phelps is all Democrat. You own him. And you didn't care squat what he did till he decided to take on Knoll. Which now makes you also look like an idiot. Did you think I wouldn't find this out? LMAO LMAO

John K. said...

John K: This is just like Cindy Sheehan. She was the darling of you left wing kooks till she took on Pelosi. LMAO LMAO Ain't seen or heard from her in 18 months. LOL LOL Phelps is a hard core Democrats. And you left wing kooks can't run from him. LOL

John K. said...

John K: And the best part, it was the ACLU that defended him. Well get the ACLU out there and defend him against you liberals. LMAO LMAO Maria, you stuck your foot into it and watching you try to extract it is so worth it.

You seriously think, John K., that Fred Phelps is just a liberal problem, that somehow he is only targeting liberals? Fred Phelps apparently literally hates the whole world, certainly apparently the whole United States. From the Wikipedia, “Fred Phelps refers to the United States as "A sodomite nation of flag-worshiping idolators." "Military funerals are pagan orgies of idolatrous blasphemy where they pray to the dunghill gods of Sodom and play taps to a fallen fool, 'They shall not lament for him, saying, Ah my brother! or, Ah sister! they shall not lament for him, saying, Ah lord! or, Ah his glory! He shall be buried with the burial of an ass, drawn and cast forth beyond the gates of Jerusalem.'" Jer. 22:18&19.[52]”
The ACLU defends Phelps because they make a habit of defending the worst cases, the cases where everyone else is inclined to say something like we should make an exception to the constitution for this person. The ACLU does its own thing and does not support or follow a liberal agenda or try to further the aims of the Democratic party.
Phelps supported Gore because “In his 1984 Senate race, Gore opposed a "gay bill of rights" and stated that homosexuality was not something that "society should affirm".” But Phelps turned on Gore once he became Vice-President (and apparently more board minded): “The entire Westboro congregation picketed a 1997 inaugural ball,[63] denouncing Gore as a "famous fag pimp."[64] In 1998, Westboro picketed the funeral of Gore's father, screaming vulgarities at Gore and telling him, "your dad's in Hell." ”
(All these quotes come from the Fred Phelps Wikipedia page
Supposedly Phelps abused his children, according to two of his sons, and also believes himself to be the only righteous man on the planet (the rest of us are going to hell). I expect someone somewhere will finally prosecute this lunatic.

Once again, John K's ability to comprehend what he reads/his ability to completely misrepresent what he reads rears its head.

It is Phelps SENIOR who leads Westboro Baptist Church and whom I refer to in my post. The Phelps who may have hosted a Gore fundraiser and who may have been a Gore delegate is Phelps JUNIOR.

You also left out the following (which EdHeath also mentions):

During the 1992 presidential campaign, Phelps protested Hillary Rodham Clinton during a campaign speech in support of the Clinton-Gore ticket at the University of Kansas on October 14, 1992. In Bill Clinton's second presidential campaign, Phelps and the Westboro church also opposed Clinton and Gore because of the administration's support for gay rights. The entire Westboro congregation picketed a 1997 inaugural ball, denouncing Gore as a "famous fag pimp." In 1998, Westboro picketed the funeral of Gore's father, screaming vulgarities at Gore and telling him, "your dad's in Hell."

Maryland got rid of these loonies by having the General Assembly pass a law which banned all protests within 1,000 feet of a funeral or funeral precession. They can't get close enough here now, so they go elsewhere.

Phelps' daughter ran for City Council in Kansas. She was defeated, by a lesbian. Maybe Fred will one day realize God was sending him a message there.

For the record, when Phelps' daughter ran for City Council in Kansas she ran as a Republican.
