Phelps and his congregation became infamous by picketing funerals for those killed in action in Iraq and Afghanistan with signs reading “Thank God for IED’s (Improvised explosive devices that accounted for many casualties).” Their “reasoning” was that God permitted American soldiers to be killed as punishment for America’s tolerance of gays.

Theological question of the day: Did the Rev. Phelps go to heaven or hell?
