  1. I was erring on the side of “deranged loon”, myself. I couldn’t give a fig if he’s a repressed gay.

    Please let him be caught in the most public ,embarrasing way possible (if true of course) ;-)

      He’ll die of Auto-Erotic Asphyxiation: Found in a Motel room, hanging from a rope in front of a full-length mirror dressed in a pink Basque with a ball gag in his mouth and the marks of years of self-flagellation on his back.
      NOW look for the brain bleach!! ;)

        Don’t hold back now , tell it as it should be !!!

      2. OMG, I so wish that happens.

      3. I make mine the words Homer and Marge Simpson once said of Mr. Burns:

        “Marge: You don’t have to smoke marijuana to laugh at Mr. Burns’ jokes. Just imagine him naked.
        Marge: Errrr…..or imagine him with a funny hat !


  3. It’s quite possible he falls into the self loathing category.
    But should that be the case, it’s pretty clear that Pastor Fred’s closet door has been double bolted, leadlined and buried in an underground nuclear bunker long ago… never to see the light of day.
    You’d have to be using a pretty powerful truth serum to prize a homoerotic confession out of Pastor Phelps.

  4. He’s so totally obsessed with homosexuality that it’s obvious he must be a self-loathing closet homosexual himself. It’s frightening to think that many of our worst enemies could also be homosexual. I use the word homosexual, because whilst they have erotic same-sex feelings or even experiences, they aren’t gay. Even if Fred Phelps dramatically came out and apologised for his hateful past, we shouldn’t forgive him. He’s probably been the cause of plenty of suicides.

    1. I don’t believe that all homophobes are necessarily repressed homosexuals, but when the homophobia is on Phelps’ level of obsession I think you’re right, there has to be some element of self-loathing there. The narcissism, though, of projecting his own fears on this level, is what’s really scary – and unforgivable.

    2. As Shakespeare said “methinks thou dost protest too loudly”

  5. Pink News is 100% tireless in its support of the Westboro Baptist Church by constantly advertising them.

    The WBC relies for its existence on publicity and PN is always willing to comply.

    1. Not exactly. The Westboro Baptist Church relies for its existence of publicity, yes, but not for its strenght. For this it relies only on the support of a few extremist bigots (which doesn’t even include the KKK, who already condemned some of the actions of the WBC), all the publicity and advertisement it gets from the media (including from here) only helps it lose more credibility, not be taken seriously and look even more ridiculous to the public eye. The old idea that getting any publicity, be it good or bad, is always desirable is untrue. The Westboro Baptist Church should get as much publicity as possible.

  6. Go f\/ck yourself prick.

  7. Riiiiiiiight, because non-‘homodeviants’ and never, ever nasty, bigoted or prejudiced, are they?

      Maybe a handful of people do but certainly not everyone. I for one think those people like yourself are simply ignorant about it and ignorance breeds hatred. To be frank, do we really care what you think or anyone of that opinion for that matter? Not really. I won’t be having sex with you any time soon. You ought to spend your time more constructively than on a gay website calling us ‘sexual deviants’. Don’h hit yourself on the way out, darling!

  8. Word from streets of Kansas is he’s donged every daughter and son for years – homo, pedo combo!

    Maybe because heterosexuals aren’t an oppressed minority who feel attacked by the outside world constantly. And don’t tell me heterosexuals can’t be ‘deviants’ either because we all know that’s complete bullshit. Would you ever crack open a book, mister foggy brain!

      Find a rope, and hang yourself. The global IQ average will go up by 2 or 3 points when you’re dead. I have nothing but hatred for people like YOU! Fcuk off and die, bigot! I imagine more than a few “Hetero” people will be glad when you and your kind are history. Also bear something in mind: JUST because a man is “Gay” it doesn’t mean they can’t pummel you into a bloody mess if you start on them.
