…Fred Phelps Nears Death – Shocking Surprises In His Hate-Filled Life…

Apparently…on March 19, 2014, fred phelps of the westboro baptist church died…

What a sad, tragic waste of human life and one human’s full potential…spending his later life, living like he did.

You know…it took me a little bit of searching around, but TheYoungTurks actually went over something…which a lot of people don’t know about fred phelps…I’d been aware of this myself, but admittedly had forgotten about it…

fred phelps was a champion civil rights lawyer…he fought for the rights of black people…At one point, he even fought to protect separation of church and state…

Presumably…at one point in his life, he was a decent human being…on some level…and he did do some sort of good, in this world.

…What on earth happened to him after that, leading to his disbarment and a life of insanity, is anybody’s guess…but he just went over the edge of the cliff, and never looked back.

Decades later, it must have been a bitter pill when fred’s own church, which he started, removed him from leadership and put him out to the pasture…Even his own church was not there for him, as fred withered away and died.

You have to expect, that caused him some deep reflection, and probably a great deal of personal regret…in one way or another.

…I just wonder if he ever had a change of heart…if he would have said anything about it, had he had the chance…if he was ever sorry, for all the ugly hate he showed towards others…

Friends…fred phelps is a prime example, of how a human should never allow themselves to devolve…I hope we can all take this away, from the life of fred phelps…

People are extremely complicated…and fred phelps, was probably mentally ill.

There is nothing to celebrate in his death…It is just tragic, he was not a decent human being, the last several decades of his life…What a waste.
