The leader of the Westboro Baptist Church, Fred Phelps is dead.
He was reported to be hospitalised and on the verge of death a few days ago, and apparently as soon as he was ill and hospitalized, he was immediately excommunicated from the church. What loyalty.
There is... fairly predictable reactions from the internet regarding this.
He was a vile and disgusting person, but do you think it's right to speak ill of the dead?
There was also talks to picket his funeral, like he did for the military funerals. Which would of course be poetic justice in a way, but that doesn't really feel like rising above it. More like sinking to their level.
Here is what Westboro Baptist Church had to say:
"Your Dashed Hopes"
And this, which is truly disgusting.
What do you guys think of this?
