If you’re not familiar with Fred Phelps, all you need to know is he founded Westoboro Baptist “Church,” an organization that pickets strangers’ funerals with signs that say “God Hates Fags” and “Thank God for Dead Soldiers.” Phelps died a few days ago. Rather than say any more about the man, I’ll just quote Notmark Twain: “I’ve never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure.”
