World's greatest troll, or genuinely obnoxious? You decide!

by Feòrag

United States: Fred Phelps has a new enemy: those dirty Yids. He's been protesting at Jewish establishments, handing out flyers blaming the Jews for killing their imaginary friend. Keeping with traditional anti-semitism, the also pretend not to know the difference between Jews in general, and the state of Israel:

Margie Phelps and three fellow church members stood on the sidewalk and held signs stating that God Hates Israel, Jews Killed Jesus, America Is Doomed, Israel Is Doomed, and ADL Jew Bullies. One of the four women had an Israeli flag tied around her waist that dragged on the ground; she stepped on the flag as she walked.

They have also added their own unique flavour of hate into the mix:

While picketing outside the Washington office of the Anti-Defamation League last Friday, Phelps' daughter Margie said that the group is now focusing on the Jewish community because church members have been testifying to gentiles for 19 years that America is doomed and they haven't gotten the message.

Now it's too late, she said. We're done with them.

Margie Phelps added that one of the loudest voices in favor of homosexuality and abortion is the Jews, especially the rabbis.

(Editor's note: This was caught by the spam filter, and it obviously contradicts the Prattle's policy on advertising as stated clearly on the comment form, but it's really, really funny...)

You total idiots! You need to quit being so stinking closed minded, and at least pick up the Bible and read it. If you simply read Genesis 32, you might accidentally learn something. God changed Jacob's name to "Israel" - that is where the name of the Israelites originated, i.e. the children of Jacob (Jews) are the nation of Israel - regardless of where they are physically located. How can you be so stupid, but arrogantly proclaim your intelligence. Read the Bible, shut up and Obey the God who made you. Idiots!

When Vegetable Fat Phelps says 'one of the loudest voices in favor of homosexuality and abortion is the Jews, especially the rabbis', do you think the illiterate twat meant 'rabbits' but couldn't spell it?

Wax lyrical

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

This is not a contacts site. If you are looking for help regarding a particular path, I suggest The Witches' Voice, which does operate a contacts service.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.

You must give one to comment, but it will not be displayed and we won't let the spammers have it. If it is obviously false, your comment will be deleted, except in extenuating circumstances.

You must preview your comment first. Blame the spammers.
