Pray for Fred Phelps

He's dying. Not only has he wounded countless people with his wretchedly evil "God hates fags" campaigns with the Westboro Baptist Church, he's done enormous damage to the word "Christian."  These are the works he brings with him as He goes to face God.  Pray for him, pray for him.PIC God loves Fred Phelps  … [Read more...]
