Warning for Others
Taz writes:
Fred Phelps, the Christian Superhero with the superpower to condemn gay people (among other superpowers) is no longer with us.
This man's life was nothing but a warning for others about the pitfalls of unquestioned belief.
He went around filling his days with nothing but hate and condemnation all because he was too afraid to admit it's possible for him to be wrong.
It's too bad that most others already down this path do not see the warning signs either.
Phelps is "just another not following the narrow path" to them and not a lesson to learn from.
Everyone knows that humans make mistakes.
Everyone knows that these mistakes can be made at any time on any subject... for other people.
Yet some so strongly believe that certain things they hold dear are somehow immune to "mistakes" just because they personally hold them so dearly.
The path is not narrow, you're just wearing blinders.
I hope someone learns from this man's death. Stop wasting your life on hate and condemnation, it's blackening your soul.
