Fred Phelps Jr., the son of Westboro Baptist Church minister Fred Phelps, is stirring up controversy after he sent a series of tweets blaming the devastating Oklahoma tornado on NBA player Jason Collins‘ coming out and Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant‘s support of his announcement.

Phelps tweeted the controversial and insensitive messages below:


Phelps wasn’t the only person making controversial comments about the tornado, Pat Robertson of the “700 Club” said, “if enough people were praying He [Jesus] would’ve intervened, you could pray, Jesus stilled the storm, you can still storms.”

What do you think of their comments?

    The members of that “church” act like nothing bad ever happens to anyone in their congregation. Or, if something bad does happen to one of them, it is always the fault of someone else. I’m not surprised at anything they or Pat Robertson say. Remember, people compared New Orleans to Sodom and Gomorrah. There will always be religious zealots who proclaim to have all the answers for the problems of the world. If they would read their Bibles with an understanding they would know that it rains on the just and the unjust. In layman’s terms, God never promised Christians they would live a trouble-free life. Job, a righteous man, lost everything he owned, his servants and his family, and was plagued with painful boils. He hadn’t done anything to deserve it. They need to sit down somewhere and be quiet. I wonder how long it will take Rush Limbaugh to say something stupid?

  3. There is an arrogance that comes from those who speak on behalf of god… but they can not change what they don’t acknowledge….remember… people with wisdom realize how much they “don’t” know…

  7. First of all this is a tragic event. And nobody can question acts of God. That being said. This guy blames this event on two individuals. My question to Jr? Your father is a minister, so I’m assuming you know something about prophecy. How about heading to the good book and reading up on end time events. And how judgement is on deck for modern day Babylon and/or Egypt. How about taking your mind to the past and thinking about the blood this nation has on their hands. How about the hanging of innocent Hebrew slaves, yes God’s set aside people. The list goes on. And you think all of this stuff occuring more so recently developed because of one mans choice and another mans feelings towards that mans choice? What’s really going on is something called Judgement !! Wrath of God on a nation whose time is coming to a conclusion just like ancient Egypt, Rome, Babylon, and many other one time world powers.

      I am not defending the comments of this guy, nor do I agree with them, but the comment you made in the guise of a question, “Where’s the outrage from the right that this “church” receives tax-exempt status???”, is an erroneous question. He is a member of the church. Why should they not have a tax exemption based on what a member says. He can say whatever he wants and so can the Church. If “THE CHURCH” doesn’t have to right to say what it believes, if it offends someone you might as well close the doors because the Gospel is offensive. When Jesus told the woman go and sin no more. In modern times, when people are told that certain things are a sin and to go and sin no more, they get offended.

      This is America. That means if a tax exemption is given to a church it will not be taken away because the government, or individuals do not agree with a statement that is made.

      • He’s actually a sitting delegation member of the church and also on the Board of Trustees listed on their IRS form. Get off your holier than thou stoop and investigate the history of this church. This “church” speaks of hate and also listed as a Hate Group. Next in your eyes the KKK just wanted to be another social fraternity.

        BS about spreading the GOSPEL…the same people protested at funerals for Sandy Hook children. Oh yeah those little kids I guess deserve that outcome??? Going to school is a sin now? BTW if you understood about tax exemptions for places of worship, they do not have the liberty to say whatever they please. Ask Rev Wright if you need any more information.
