Westboro Baptist Church News: I'm Pretty Sure Fred Phelps is Dying...and trying to hide it from the media.
To all and anyone interested in this matter:

While I do not have anything that might be called "iron clad" (Ie: direct inside information), I can predict with relative certainty that Phelps is about to either die, or cause a major shake up in the power structure of WBC.
There are several factors that bring me to this conclusion.

Firstly: Phelps's physical appearance has become notably more frail/thin since this time last year. His weight has fluctuated wildly throughout his life, but I find it dificult to believe that a man of 82 would be intentionally dieting off and on to the point of looking gaunt and frail.

Secondly: Phelps wore a large "cowboy hat" (Don't really know what else you could call it)in the last few videos he filmed of himself. While he has worn them out in public during pickets over the years, this is the first time he has (on seperate days no less) sat down at his desk and done a video in one. One reason, it is logical to assume, could be to hide dramatic hairloss. Hairloss may be caused by many things, cancer among them of course. I think it is of note that, while he probably couldn't hold services every weekend if he had cancer, many of his granddaughters are nurses and a few others work in various parts of the healthcare field. If he wanted to, I think it would be possible for him to treat the cancer himself at home without having to go to a hospital (Which would surely leak information like that about his health).

Third: Phelps has totally stopped his appearances on film in the past month or two. The reason could be anything...who knows? It is of note though that his sons are doing videos in his place.

Lastly: His "sermons" (which they put on thier website every week) are getting shorter and shorter...down from 45-60 minutes two years ago to 35 or so today (some are less than a half an hour). As far as I can tell, he still hasn't missed a Sunday since 1954 or whatever he regularly boasts, but he seems less loud, stumbles over his words more often, and often complains to his grandsons (mid-"sermon") that the room is too cold, and that whatever vent is on him needs to be turned off.

I am not posting this to encourage a "Death watch" or anything like that, I just think it will be interesting to see how the church handles this. What I am fairly sure of is that the death will come "As a theif in the night"...to use Fred's lingo. The public, in fact, might not find out until after he is cremated (they probably don't want a massive picket at the funeral, so I can't see them having him buried in a cemetery). The only way I could envision a massive rally at a Phelps funeral is if Fred's wife Margie dies first (possible any day really...she's coming up on 90 qick...she's several years older than Fred).

I really hope he repents for his lifetime campaign of hate before he dies.

He better get right with GOD, because, right now, the way he spreads his hate and unforgiveness, this guy is going to hell!!!!


Once saved always saved never existed, if we don't live 100% for GOD setting examples of true love and christianity, forgiveness, humbleness, patient, longsuffering, setting the same example that JESUS did, we so called christians, will not make it to heaven.


I am not speaking for all of us, we know who we are, the backsliders, the ones who heave trouble giving up this world and those claiming to be christians such as, the one mentioned on this thread, plus all the fakes on TBN paid by TPTB to mislead innocent naive christians!!!

Re: Westboro Baptist Church News: I'm Pretty Sure Fred Phelps is Dying...and trying to hide it from the media.
OP:
THANKS[!] for this informational update. Just last month marked the 22nd anniversary of when I went eyeball-to-eyeball with Fred Phelps when I filmed a feature-length documentary on the first Gay Pride Parade in Wichita [KS]. My lengthy on-camera interview with Fred and his sons and minions was only the 2nd time he had ever protested a gay-themed event.... the first only a few weeks before, also here in Wichita. I was dressed "straight" that day, even wearing a wedding band as I knew he wouldn't say a word otherwise.

As I backtracked my camera and followed Fred in the tight circle of his pathetic little picket line, I was struck by one thing in particular: his eyes. A piercingly vivid blue, they appeared fiery -yet emotionless... they had a very detached look about them. His recitations of skewed Biblical scriptures that supported his narrow views were rattled off like rote... almost like incantations to ward off evil spirits as during an exorcism. That day, I also interviewed one of his sons and daughter Shirley [who has lately taken up the reigns of the dead horse that WBC still rides relentlessly] - but they both possessed a "normal" appearance that Fred himself did not.

Phelps really opened up to me that Sunday morning, since he had just begun his campaign to become the Governor of Kansas and had gotten precious little media coverage for his campaign - boasting of a 2-min piece that WIBW [Topeka KS] had done a few days before as if it somehow validated his presence, not acknowledging the fact that the Topeka station had actually ridiculed his efforts.

He ranted for my lens for about 15 solid minutes before I cut and went upstairs to interview leaders of our local Gay community. When I returned about an hour later, Fred had ceased walking in circles and was exhorting his 'troops", reassuring them of the nobility of their cause, thier placards drooping from fatigue [BTW: those "God Hates Fags" placards you see today are the SAME ones he used back then - if nothing else, Fred is thrifty!].

One month later -just before our parade began- I again aimed my camera in Fred's direction. That day, I was wearing my "normal" attire. Fred recognized me at once from our earlier interview and immediately his back stiffened and eyes hardened as he realised he had been "had" during our previous meeting; but since there was other media present, he forced himself to remain cordial.

The crowning acheivement of my final shot of Fred was to verbally back him into a corner and force him to admit -on camera- that God was smiling down on our little parade that day... by giving us blessed weather for our march.

That was all 22 years ago. I'm truly surprised Fred Phelps has stayed alive this long... in spite of the bullet-proof vest he started to wear shortly after my camera stopped rolling.

OP: thanks again for this update. You really made my day.
