Topeka Kansas: the next Jonestown?

Amazing stories keep coming from Gossip Boy, an online gay publication based in Oklahoma City.

His latest post reveals hints that the infamous Westboro Baptist Church Phelps clan, known for picketing funerals and carrying signs proclaiming “God Hates Fags”, may be ready to commit a Jim Jones-like farewell party.

If you’re like me, you probably don’t monitor the Westboro Baptist Church website (link in Gossip Boy’s report), which recently posted this “Field Report” a few days ago:

When we’re done, we will leave your filthy land and be placed safely out of the reach of the horror that will then land upon you swiftly and certainly – in one hour.

We pray it to be any day now, for the promises of our God are sure and certain.  We finished our job in Napa County – one of the few we have left – and then went to tell the Saints of our God-blessed exploits and our joy.

Gossip Boy writes:

Westboro recently lost a massive lawsuit and are bordering on bankruptcy. Their protests have resulted in a backlash from parties well beyond gays and lesbians. Their dynamic leader Fred Phelps is in bad health and some claim near death. Now they want to end their mission and go be with God.

When a cult like this starts talking about the end, then it’s time to move in and get the children out.

I’m too busy with projects around the house today to write more, but interested readers can read the whole story here.

    May it not be so. As much as I loathe the WBC loonies, and would see their embrace of “martyrdom” as a ironic end to a wretched lot, their children should not be offered on the altar of their madness.
