“Hey, Ireland! God Hates You!” Sez Fred Phelps

First he came for the fags, then he came for Sweden, now Fred Phelps and his anti-gay brethren have a new target: Ireland.

According the Westboro Baptist’s daddy, God Hates Ireland. Why? Because they accept gay people, naturally. And, what’s worse, have laws against inciting hateful violence. Those heathens! From GHI:

We are not ignorant of Satan’s devices (2 Cor. 2:11). “Then said they, Come, and let us devise devices – (contrivances, plots) – against Jeremiah.” Jer. 18:18. It begins to look like the fags and fag-enablers of the Literary & Historical Society of the University College Dublin have devised devices against me – phrased another way – they have contrived a plot – or conspiracy – to lure me to Dublin, Ireland, to speak at their 153rd Session on the subject of “Gay Adoption” – and then to arrest me for the crime of violating their law entitled, The Prohibition of Incitement to Hatred Act. That Act is a draconian, antichristic cup of Satan’s slimy vomit straight from the maw of Hell. They know exactly what I will say on the subject of Gay Adoption. And they know that what I will say from the Bible about sodomites will land me in an Irish jail for two and maybe 10 years…

Fred Phelps sure has lost his touch. “Satan’s slimy vomit straight from the maw of Hell”? That’s nothing compared to how he described Swedes: “[They’re] drippings from the Devil’s own penis – a veritable sperm bank for Satan’s queers.”

    First they came for the Swedish,
    but i remained silent
    I was not Swedish

    Then they came for the Irish
    but i remained silent
    I was not Irish……..

    etc. etc. etc.

    at this point isn’t it better for them to tell us who god DOES love? wouldn’t that be more effective and exert less energy?

  • cjc

    I double-dog dare that entire clan to go somewhere like, say, China, and pull this shit. Or possibly Saudi Arabia.

  • Mr. B

    They might as well just go ahead and declare that God hates the entire world, but then they wouldn’t be able to clog up as much web space.

    CJC’s got a great point–let’s see those jokers just try this kind of malarkey in Dubai. Also, since when does Fred Phelps get to call anyone Draconian?

  • WWH

    At this point, it’s all just funny.

  • abelincoln

    Jesus H. christ on a cracker – this guy is coming all over the place. Who’s gonna clean it up?

  • abelincoln

    Sorry to double post but…

    “he described Swedes: “[They’re] drippings from the Devil’s own penis – a veritable sperm bank for Satan’s queers.”’

    But OMG – the Swede’s pop music is obviously from heaven… what a paradox.

  • mbos17

    This “church” consists of an estimated 90 to 150 members, yet they honestly believe they are the only ones going to heaven on this planet? Ridiculous. Don’t worry, with 6 billion others in “hell”, nobody will be lonely.

  • nycstudman

    hey mbos17: Mark Twain said Hell is where all the interesting people are anyway.

  • GoodBuddy

    This is so over the top it makes you wonder if it isn’t a fake website – like yesterdays Baptists for Brownback one and the Landover Baptist Church. The more the Westboro Baptist Church is criticized, the more they can feel they are martyrs for their religion. Good thing they haven’t started blowing themselves up yet.

    It’s just very strange they are so fixated on gay people.

  • Mr. B

    Sadly, GoodBuddy, those people are very, very real. Four of his thirteen kids have become estranged from the family because they left the church, and two of his sons in particular have been very vocal about what it was like growing up as part of what would become Westboro Baptist. Also, the British journalist Louis Theroux did an extensive documentary on them. The Phelps clan is dead serious.

    Interestingly, Fred Phelps was a rather successful civil rights lawyer in his younger days. Anything to make a buck. (He also made his kids sell candy bars door to door for long hours on school nights to raise money for his church.)

    “It’s just very strange they are so fixated on gay people.”

    Makes you wonder what Fred’s own personal demons might be, dunnit?

    But, as many folks have aptly pointed out, for all the Phelps’ asshattery, they actually do the gays a service by making themselves more despicable to the American public than a little same-sex sodomy.

  • Craig Browning

    When will this asshole wake up and realize God just hates bigots… like him, Pat Robertson, James Kennedy, etc?

  • Matt

    Well, “antichristic” is certainly a new word (try using THAT in a sentence, boys and girls). And you gotta love “[a] cup of Satan’s slimy vomit straight from the maw of Hell.” I mean, that’s totally going to show up in my next restaurant rant.

    Seriously, these crazy people need to be paid a LOT less attention to. They’re a teensy tiny group (yeah, yeah, I know the Nazis were once teensy tiny too) with nothing but their noise. If a Phelps shrieks in the forest and no one’s there to hear…

  • diebuchen

    There is one very good reason for not ignoring Fred Phelps and his Merry Phelpsters. They give courage and comfort to the people who want to kill you. (Shirley once wrote on godhatesfags.com she thinks Gays should be executed in a painless way, such as with lethal injections.

    Phelps was once in contact with the Nazis headquartered in LaPorte, Colorado. It is believed the two assassins of Alan Berg, the Jewish host of a controversial radio talk show in Denver, were members of the LaPorte Nazis, and I have no doubt the Colorado Nazis were at least in contact with the extremists in Laramie, Wyoming who killed Matthew Shepard. Laramie is a scant 65 miles from LaPorte.

    Although it is true Phelps chose not to become affiliated with the Colorado Nazis, it is interesting that they wanted him in their organization.

    I spend hours every week on the web fighting Phelps’ sick behavior and beliefs. It is my heartfelt belief they need more exposure, not less. Like cockroaches, they run from the light. Google: ADDICTED TO HATE and LOVING GOD’S HATE to read what I mean; then tell your friends.

  • CitizenGeek

    Hah, fair play to the Literary & Historical Society of UCD for having the balls to invite him. It was obviously a joke, and one I think only the Irish would try!

  • Anthony Forde

    if this sick bastard is goin to heaven then i would prefer to be in hell. im proud to be irish

  • jer o'neill

    i’m irish and i think that its a disgrace that he can get away with this hate against ireland simply because we are trying to accept people for who they are. If you have that much hate for any one group of people then i’m he won’t bring his hate and vile comments here. I’m proud to be irish and proud to say that we are moving in the right direction in accepting people
