Fred Phelps dead

Fred Phelps, the “God hates fags” preacher is dead. Ironically, the man who worked, through religion, so evilly against gay people, died excommunicated from the “Church” he founded. It could also be said that, as a victim of Alzheimer’s, he died excommunicated from himself as well. Just desserts?.

There is a school of thought that his vile bigotry helped the gay cause more than it harmed it. I have no way of judging the truth of that..

I’m not glad he’s dead, but neither will I find fault with those who are celebrating it. However, returning hate for hate is unproductive.

About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
