Fred Phelps: A wolf in sheep's clothing, to protest funeral of 9 y/o AZ shooting victim

for their protests at American solider funerals.

In a nutshell (literally): Diabolically influenced.

You might remember the pastor and congregation that travels the country protesting at the funerals of American soldiers.  Well, he has decided to protest at the funeral of 9 year old Christina Taylor Green - the youngest victim of Jared Loughner's shooting rampage.  Arizona passed an emergency bill yesterday which creates a 300 foot buffer zone.  Real Christians are planning to create a buffer zone of their own to shield the family from this sheep in wolves clothing.

Fred Phelps has apparently omitted from his reading of Scripture, 1 Corinthians 13:1-13...

If I speak in human and angelic tongues but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, (love) is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing; if tongues, they will cease; if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing. For we know partially and we prophesy partially, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. When I was a child, I used to talk as a child, think as a child, reason as a child; when I became a man, I put aside childish things. At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face. At present I know partially; then I shall know fully, as I am fully known.  So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Here is a story about compassion on the part of many Arizonans.  Watch this...
