Looking at the comments of various articles ...

Fred Phelps must be the most hated man in America.

Any word

Any idea as to his eternal destination?  I usually repudiate the whole crowd, at least when I'm not debating Shirley Phelps-Roper on Yahoo Answers.   But I was wondering: has anybody examined his theology as regards salvation?  When he dies will he wake up in Hell, or will he be "stepping on shore, and finding it" embarassing?

 

Seriously, with the damage that this one man has done to the name of Christ, how can he feel anything other than shame when he meets the Lord, if indeed he is saved?

They wouldn't excommunicate the guy.  That would be like Muslims repudiating Mohammed or Mormons denouncing Joseph Smith.  They are a very private bunch about the workings of their organization, that's all, IMO.
