There are a lot of very noble posts at the moment about how the LGBT community benefited by Fred Phelps and his evil band of minions and that we needed a good bad guy to rally against. What I wonder is how many of those people have ever been face to face with those people when they were spewing their hate?
I have been and as far as I’m concerned that hate monger can go to a very desolate awful place to spend eternity and that it has a big mirror so he can see his face.
I’ve marched in Gay Pride parades his people were at and to anybody in the least sensitive to energy it was horrifying and nasty. It made you wilt inside even when you knew you hadn’t done anything wrong. You KNEW without a shadow of a doubt that these people were ready to stone you to death and dance on your maimed and mutilated body if they could have been allowed to do so.
Their faces were so mutilated from constant hating you wondered if they could look in a mirror. They were ugliness in flesh. They used their voices and their signs as weapons and they were very clear that they meant to use them in that way. One time one lunged at one of the guys and then when we stood our ground he asked the sheriff nearby to cite us and for him to protect him from the evil faggot and dykes and the sheriff turned and told him to shut up and that he was going to arrest him for inciting a riot and not protect him because he would deserve whatever he got. You know what we were doing that got him so riled up? Singing “Jesus love me this I know.”
So I will not forgive or forget Fred Phelps and his evil family of every bad minions. I don’t think he made the world a better place and I hope he meets his God on the other side and his God sets him a place deserving of him. The world is now a much better place without his hating little self.
