As a follow-up to this posting...
...yesterday it was reported that Mr Phelps passed away.
A younger person asked me if I thought Fred Phelps was burning in Hell. My answer? Well first, the answer to that question is far, far above my pay grade. Second, I really, truly believe that all of us, up until the very moment of our very last breath, have a shot at redemption. Every day and every moment we are on this Earth we have a chance to "get it right". So here's to hoping that before he passed, Fred Phelps found release from the anger and outrage that apparently consumed so much of his life in latter years.
Rest in Peace Fred Phelps.
