English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Fred "God Hates Fags" Phelps. I refuse to revel in anyone's death, but I won't personally miss the man.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

There's been a mention of this in another thread, in which I quoted George Takei, from when it was first reported Fred Phelps was dying:

George Takei wrote:I take no solace or joy in this man's passing. We will not dance upon his grave, nor stand vigil at his funeral holding "God Hates Freds" signs, tempting as it may be.

He was a tormented soul, who tormented so many. Hate never wins out in the end. It instead goes always to its lonely, dusty end.


Today George Takei has commented on Phelps's passing. As before I cannot think of a better response than this, so I will simply post:

George Takei wrote:Today, Mr. Phelps may have learned that God, in fact, hates no one. Vicious and hate-filled as he was, may his soul find the kind of peace through death that was so plainly elusive during his life.

"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré

You might need to be Facebook friends with people to see it, I can't either.

I think this thread sums up what I'll remember Bart for most. Pieces is in there a lot as well.

It's suddenly getting a bit dusty in here.

Goodbye, Barty. I know you'll do your level best to drink the volcano dry before we get there. Give my love to Pieces.
