Sickening: Westboro Baptist Church Plans To Protest Mandela’s Funeral

Comments: 6  | Leave A Comment

The organization’s founder, Fred Phelps, is a former Civil Rights attorney who protested institutionalized racism much of his career before going on an anti-gay crusade. While some have called the move to protest Mandela’s funeral racist, Westboro responded with the following on Twitter:

Racist or not, it is disrespectful and dishonorable to protest at the funeral of one of the most transformative figures in the world. It is highly doubtful, however, that South African police will allow them anywhere near the ceremonies.

  1. How does such a tiny, insular, family “church” get all this money
    to finance their trips all over the planet just to “show up” at selected funerals?

  2. Let them go ahead and mess with Mandela .. I’m sure they will regret that motherland style a$$ whooping they will get from our brothers and sisters !!!

  3. Some people just cant let people rest! NO matter what that man did in his personal life, he was still a great attribute to his country and a humanitarian. No one is perfect and the bible clearly states “he who is without sin shall cast the first stone!” No man can put another man in heaven or hell. Check yourself before you can pass judgement on anyone else!
