Professor_Valconian wrote:Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps, Sr., has died. He was 84.

Since 1991, the church has held anti-gay demonstrations that would eventually include picketing the funerals of soldiers and praying for the death of more.

Despite its "Baptist" name, Westboro is not affiliated with any larger church denomination. Most Christians criticize the congregation's harsh anti-gay rhetoric and penchant for pursuing the limelight at inappropriate moments.

According to the church's website, it has picketed more than 53,000 events, ranging from Lady Gaga concerts to funerals for slain U.S. soldiers. Typically,  a dozen or so family members -- including small children -- brandish signs that say "God Hates Fags" and "Thank God for Dead Soldiers."

Westboro's website keeps a running tally of "people whom God has cast into hell since you loaded this page."

Sucks to be him today.

Somehow I doubt it.  Pharoah had a hard heart as well.

Interesting how everyone hated phelps and many christians called him a false preacher yet many people ( including christians of all denominations) believe alot of what he preached...I have heard many people speak hate towards gays..including a few here on the cmr....phelps, like so many other christians, forgot that God loves everyone but hates sin.

Agreed, hate the sin, not the sinner.

I'm pretty sure I heard somewhere that Westboro is not an affiliated church and actually almost all of them are lawyers. Their goal is simply to instigate attacks from people so they can sue them for money. They have won alot of lawsuits over this. So in a sense they are a business under the guise of a church

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!  Gosh that is so tragic.  He was only 50 years old!  And after their guitarist just passing away not too long ago either.  Wow.  GWAR has been one of my favorite bands to see in concert.  I've seen them three times and they were spectacular every time.

James Brian Hellwig AKA: The Ultimate Warrior in the WWE has passed away at 54. It's crazy because he was just on Monday Night Raw last night talking and shaking those top ropes like his old self! I can't believe it. R.I.P.

His speech for the last couple of nights he was on WWE tv were almost prophetic. Telling his daughters that no matter what happens to their father, that he will always love them and on Monday he said "Every mans heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breathe its final breath and what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others. It makes them bleed deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers. By the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him, and make the running the man did live forever."

“What you see on ‘The Brady Bunch’ was who she was,” Frey said. “She was a very faithful Christian person.”
Davis mostly retired from show business in the late 1970s to settle down in an Episcopal community.
“I’m convinced we all have a God-shaped space in us, and until we fill that space with God, we’ll never know what it is to be whole,” she told People.

Eli Wallach passed on June 24. I'm sure I've seen other things he was in without realizing it was him, but for me, and probably for most people, he'll always be the "ugly" to Clint Eastwood's "good" and Lee Van Cleef's "bad". Apparently he was also in the Magnificent Seven; I should watch that again.

Meshach Taylor passed on Saturday, June 28. I know he was in Designing Women, but I never watched that show. I remember him as the very effeminate guy in Mannequin. Was there ever any indication in that movie that his character was gay, or was it just stereotypically assumed? It's been a long time since I've seen that movie, and I'm not sure I could sit through it again! LOL!

Bobby Womack also died last week (June 27). I've never been into Soul or Motown music much, so I couldn't name any of his songs. But apparently he was in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame so he's worth mentioning in the thread I suppose.

The Outfield's guitarist and songwriter John Spinks died on Wednesday after a long battle with liver cancer. The melodic rock group enjoyed a string of top 40 hits in the 1980s. He was 60 years old.
The band's biggest hit "Your Love" hit no. 6 on the singles chart and helped propel their debut album, "Play Deep," to multi-platinum sales status in the U.S. The band's latest album was 2011's "Replay."
The band broke the sad news to fans with the following Facebook post: "It is with great sadness to inform you that John passed away at 09.55 on Wednesday 9th July 2014. He was 60 years old. As many of you know, he had been suffering from liver cancer for many years and bravely fought the disease until the very end. We are relieved that his passing was peaceful and painless.
"John was a loving husband, inspirational father, doting grandfather and gifted songwriter. His musical career started from a very young age and he wanted more than anything for people to listen and enjoy his music. He passed away knowing he achieved his ambition.
"If it were possible, we know John would have liked to have thanked each and every fan of The Outfield personally. He admired and respected the emails from thousands of loyal followers who commented on his music and enquired about his health. This alone, gave him motivation to battle through the sometimes dark days.
"We would like to thank you for 'Your Love' and the continued support you have given John throughout his career. He loved making music and playing his guitar. He found pleasure knowing that his music made people happy and bought them fond memories. He worked hard with many days in pain to finish the Replay album. There were times when he could barely pick up his guitar, but he refused to give up knowing he would disappoint fans. The hardest day for John was when he put his guitar in its case announcing his hands could no longer play.
"During the last months of his life, John, Tony and Alan wrote new material. What the future holds for this is unclear at the time of this writing.
"There is so much more we could say, but for now, we would like to grieve the loss of John.
"God bless you all.






During the 80's this was my favorite band.
