What better way to eulogize Westboro Baptist Church leader and biggest church bully, Fred Phelps than with a prayer?
Pretentious with arrogance, they wear the latest fashions in violence, Pampered and overfed, decked out in silk bows of silliness. They jeer, using words to kill; they bully their way with words. They’re full of hot air, loudmouths disturbing the peace. People actually listen to them—can you believe it? Like thirsty puppies, they lap up their words.
Almighty powerful Lord of the weak and the mighty. Help us to live together. Inspire the strong to care for the weak. Help me Lord to use my loudmouth and words to build up and not tear down. Merciful creator we leave arrogance and pretentiousness on our journey to the cross. Help me shake the dust of violence and put on the cloth of humility and love. Amen
“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.” Matthew 5:44
God loves. Rest in peace Fred.
