:edit: Here's a good Fred. Now you shall read about the bad Fred.
I am completely in awe and confusion about Fred Phelps, the crazy old man that thinks we are all going to hell, that God hates soldiers and that's why they die. He prays for hurricanes and for the deaths of evil doers (aka all of us unfortunate enough to not be in his church, which they claim are all prophets that have never sinned.
Am I the only one that wants to go over to him and beat some sense into him? No. But even if we all did he would continue on in his craziness. He says he's 100% right. Apparently he and his 75 followers (most of whom happen to be family) go for the 1-10 sin scale. You know, well that lie was only a 2 so it's not as bad as that person's 10. They say that when gay men die, God laughs. I say that sin is a black and white issue, I say that we have all sinned. Liars, murderers and the sexually immoral will all be in the same boat, if they do not accept God's forgiveness.
Here's a link to a story about it, granted it is the News tribune, so it's quite left-ist and all for the gay people. So read it with discretion.
Ponder this verse, because what Fred Phelps is preaching is not the gospel that is preached from the Bible.
"But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!"
