Well, guess what? This hateful man is planning on picketing the funerals of students and professors killed yesterday in the tragedy at Virginia Tech. From Pam Spaulding's website (as a matter of principle, she'll quote Phelps but not link to his site so he can't count the hits to his page):
WBC will preach at the funerals of the Virginia Tech students killed on campus during a shooting rampage April 16, 2007. You describe this as monumental horror, but you know nothing of horror -- yet. Your bloody tyrant Bush says he is 'horrified' by it all. You know nothing of horror -- yet. Your true horror is coming. "They shall also gird themselves with sackloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads" (Eze. 7:18).Read like the ramblings of a madman? You bet they are. Most of this world's horrors happen in the name of religion, to me a horrible fact and something to pause and think long and hard about.
Why did this happen, you ask? It's simple. Your military chose to shoot at the servants of God today, and all they got for their effort was terror. Then, the LORD your God sent a crazed madman to shoot at your children. Was God asleep while this took place? Was He on vacation? Of course not. He willed this to happen to punish you for assailing His servants.
UPDATE: people are mobilizing to block Phelps' presence at the funerals. Read more about it here.
