Here come those dependably abhorrent human dung-piles: the members of the Westboro Baptist Church, who bravely disrupt the funerals of returning dead soldiers, have decided that their behavior was not quite down to the level to which the Rev. Phelps wished to descend. So, they are coming to Newtown, to carry on their battle against homosexuality  on yet another front {any front other than one in which they might have to actually interact with gays}, that of the funerals of the victims of last Friday’s sickening tragedy. I don’t own an assault rifle, and that is a good reason for the jerks to get on their knees and pray, but I do have this….

Zero Is What They’re Worth

America is turning queer

We don’t want that happening ’round here
There’s a dead child under that flag
Before he’s buried his family will know God hates fags

and I say
Hey Fred Phelps, where are you bound?
You’re not hearing God, you’re just unsound

Those parallels being drawn
Between us and the Mansons are totally wrong
We’re just speaking our minds
So what if our choice of forum is a little unkind?

you better
Stop, Fred Phelps, because everyone
will deny having seen who shot the gun

Dumb people speaking their minds
The jerks believe that God is on their side
They upset the grieving with their signs
Showing too much interest in other people’s behinds

For God’s sake, Phelps, you and your kin
Have been duped by ol’ Satan

We have God on our side
It’s his might versus your Gay Pride
We hope you’re trampled in your parades
Or have have sex on the floats, and then die of AIDS

It’s time you
stopped, Fred Phelps, call your dogs off
It’s not your concern how they get their rocks off

*Apologies to S. Stills

  1. What they are doing isn’t in alignment with freedom of speech or first amendment stuff… it is emotional bullying, inciting a riot , causing distress … emotional violence, emotional assault ….we wouldn’t allow it in the playground we shouldn’t be allowing it on the streets… arrest them … but think loving thoughts and move forward in kindness…. still…. arrest the bullies 🙂


    • Good comment! If we can sequester anti-war protestors; keep them away from what they are protesting against, we should be able to do it to these oxygen-wasters.

        they are trying to be martyrs. any violence done against them is playing there game. there are fringe supporters of WBC all across America waiting for justification. if America ignores them hard enough they will go away.

  2. ps- I have a strong feeling that Fred may be trying to right a wrong that happened to him many many years ago…… something he has never processed….such a sick old man

    This reminds me of one of my favorite songs, Greg: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tyIjfE-tIk


  4. They suck, primarily because they are denigrating the very people who are ensuring their First Amendment right to do so.


  5. Please stop capitolizing their name. They are not a real Church and they do not adhere to any of the Baptist ideals. Maybe just the Westboro crazies?


  6. You are so creative….I love your stuff. Just really sick of people even acknowledging their claim to a connection to a legitimate Church group.
    I wonder how right The Silver Poet is about his motivations. He’s probably right or very close to it.

    These nuts were at the Inauguration parade (surrounded by police) while I was in D.C. But at least there’s this: http://www.ibtimes.com/two-phelps-family-members-leave-westboro-baptist-church-cut-ties-kin-1071064

    Maybe the group will just die off when grandpa croaks.
