De mortuis, my ass  
While we were away, Fred Phelps died in vain. Good riddance, and thanx for making homophobia look even stupider and crazier.

What a horrid, damaged man he was. And it seems that his daughter, who by all accounts was part of the group that "excommunicated" him from his own 26-or-26-person flock, is even more damaged and horrid. God (or your extra-human help in times of need) help us all.

The entire group is his extended family, minus the ones who got the hell out as soon as they were of legal age and/or mentally healthy enough.

Oh, aye - he was never really willing to have many more folks than blood or extended family in the church. I imagine it was because he figured he'd have less control over anyone who wasn't connected in that way. Poor family; poor him; poor world that he tried to ruin.

The bizarre thing is that he used to be a civil rights lawyer, and I can't figure out what the path from civil rights lawyer to legal troll might be.
