Please don't throw back all of the hate Fred Phelps spewed with his words and actions during this his time of passing with hate in your own words and actions about it. Instead, counter his legacy with LOVE. That is how you defeat it. If it is with hate, he has won in death, and you aren't much better than he was in life.
"I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear." --- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
