Fred Phelps Is Dead. Gay America Lives On.

Fred Phelps Sr., the 84-year-old founder of one of the most-hated churches in America, died late Wednesday night, according to a family member.

Since 1991, under Phelps’ direction, the Topeka, Kan.-based Westboro Baptist Church has held anti-gay demonstrations that would eventually include picketing the funerals of soldiers and praying for the death of more.
