The Fred Phelps Singers: God Hates The World genre: Hip-Gnosis & Six Degrees of Speculation

Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church followers have taken to singing...doing a knock off of the well known ensemble song We Are The they call God Hates The World. Everyone that's anyone in WBC apparently participated in this musical masterpiece...including a child that can't be more than three or four years old.

Anyone that doesn't understand how hate and prejudice exist and how it is perpetuated need only view this little child singing at the end of the video clip. I can't imagine raising one's child in such an environment but the Phelps clan seems perfectly content to indoctrinate the entire Phelps family and all of their offspring.

I've never fully understood the goals of people like Phelps. If they believe that they are in god's good graces, why not take solace in knowing as much? The fact that their actions are vocal and controversial suggests that it isn't enough for them to believe they are right. Perhaps just being right wouldn't pay the bills and give the entire family the ability to travel around the country staging protests at the funerals of gays and soldiers. Apparently being saved isn't enough...they need to raise cash in order to conduct their vile attacks on innocent people.

If their actions are the work of the lord, then I'm afraid I will have to pass on the promise of an eternal afterlife...their god is far too hateful for my taste. On the other hand, the end of life might have a few of its own surprises in store for Phelps and his fanatical flock. I'm happy to let the cards fall where they may...I'm certain I won't be sharing any future accommodations with Fred Phelps.
