Former Westboro Baptist Leader Fred Phelps Is DYING


The son of Fred Phelps, the former infamous leader of the Westboro Baptist Church, is on his deathbed. The son of the “GOD HATES FAGS” hate group says that his father is dying in Kansas.

Nathan left the church back in 1980. He currently lives in Canada and works on behalf of LGBT rights. He posted on Facebook that his father is dying in hospice care in Topeka, Kansas. Read the message below:

I’ve learned that my father, Fred Phelps, Sr., pastor of the “God Hates Fags” Westboro Baptist Church, was ex-communicated from the “church” back in August of 2013. He is now on the edge of death at Midland Hospice house in Topeka, Kansas.

I’m not sure how I feel about this. Terribly ironic that his devotion to his god ends this way. Destroyed by the monster he made.

I feel sad for all the hurt he’s caused so many. I feel sad for those who will lose the grandfather and father they loved. And I’m bitterly angry that my family is blocking the family members who left from seeing him, and saying their good-byes.

The biggest irony of of all is that Phelps seemed to love attention so much, and yet his death has been announced with relatively little fan fare. So if you spread the word about this news, don’t do so too loudly.
