Westboro Baptist Church and Me

thFred Phelps, founding “pastor” of the Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas, has died. A few years ago I had a little interaction with this group. We had an email exchange, which is quoted in its entirety here. Just as a little introduction to the graciousness of this bunch (not), here is the final sentence of their response to me:

Thanks for writing. You’re going to Hell, have a nice day!

Not a nice group. I pray that they will reform, or disband, now that the founder is gone.
