WBC Founder Fred Phelps Passes Away

fred(PCM) Fred Phelps, who founded the Westboro Baptist Church, died late Wednesday evening, March 19, 2014.

While reports were rampant this week that he was at death’s door, along with rumors that he had been kicked out of his own church, we last heard official word that was having some health issues last Sunday: “I can tell you that Fred Phelps is having some health problems,” WBC spokesman Steve Drain told the Lawrence Journal-World. “He’s an old man, and old people get health problems.”

Nate Phelps, one of Fred Phelps’ estranged children, wrote a Facebook post on March 15 saying his father was “on the edge of death at Midland Hospice house in Topeka, Kansas.”

There will reportedly be no public funeral (story) Church member Margie Phelps tweeted “We don’t worship the dead in this church, so there’d be no public memorial or funeral to picket if any member died.”

Many would agree that he caused a lot of needless pain to many American citizens, from fallen soldiers to gays, even to Christian (and non-Christian) religious groups by protesting and picketing at funerals for just about anyone who didn’t see God the same way he did.

Many will celebrate his death, other will let him quietly pass into the darkness. We should keep in mind that he has friends and family, children and grandchildren, who lost a father, grandfather, and friend…

So watch what you may wish to shout at or about him. If you had a family member or friend who derailed themselves from ‘normal’ society – how would you want to be treated while grieving your loss.

Be nice. He’s getting his just rewards, and reacting like the WBC acts, and putting yourselves down to their level, won’t help anybody.

Frankie and Alice Starring Halle Berry and Stellan Skarsgard

FrankieFrankie and Alice is inspired by the remarkable true story of an African American go-go dancer “Frankie” with multiple personalities (dissociative identity disorder or “DID”) who struggles to remain her true self while fighting against two very unique alter egos: a seven-year-old child named Genius and a Southern white racist woman named Alice.

In order to stop the multiple voices in her head, Frankie (Halle Berry) works together with a psychotherapist (Stellan Skarsgard) to uncover and overcome the mystery of the inner ghosts that haunt her. Always at the forefront of women’s issues, from Halle Berry, Academy Award® winner turned film producer, comes a must-see, award-worthy film Frankie and Alice – a moving psychological drama inspired by a woman suffering with multiple personality disorder in early 1970s Los Angeles.

When a fast-talking guy joins his girlfriend’s brother—a hot-tempered cop—to patrol the streets of Atlanta, he gets entangled in the officer’s latest case.

Now, in order to prove that he deserves his future bride, he must survive the most insane 24 hours of his life. For the past two years, high-school security guard Ben (Hart) has been trying to show decorated APD detective James (Cube) that he’s more than just a video-game junkie who’s unworthy of James’ sister, Angela (Tika Sumpter).

When Ben finally gets accepted into the academy, he thinks he’s earned the seasoned policeman’s respect and asks for his blessing to marry Angela. Knowing that a ride along will demonstrate if Ben has what it takes to take care of his sister, James invites him on a shift designed to scare the hell out of the trainee. But when the wild night leads them to the most notorious criminal in the city, James will find that his new partner’s rapid-fire mouth is just as dangerous as the bullets speeding at it. John Leguizamo and Laurence Fishburne join the cast of the action-comedy directed by Tim Story.

Merry Christmas (Christmas Split) Video From Chuck Norris

(PCM) A Very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year To You All!
“Some say that ever ‘gainst that season comes
Wherein our Saviour’s birth is celebrated,
The bird of dawning singeth all night long.
And then, they say, no spirit dare stir abroad.
The nights are wholesome. Then no planets strike,
No fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm,
So hallowed and so gracious is that time.”
