For a hate campaign, it's really flashy, well produced, and cool! As they say in the video, "Hell is the bitch-slap of god's hate".
These presenters are self-righteous and vulgar. They are a bad influence on children and vulnerable people. I live in Britain and Australia and have never encountered such obnoxious people. They are best avoided and ignored in my opinion.
I don't understand the phone recording at the beginning of the clip.
Sampling is probably considered fair use. good question, anyway.
The two doc's on them are here under Religion.
Just saw the second one last week..They just get crazier and crazier.
Thank you for the link. I just finished watching the first one. To go way out on a limb based on some brief moments, it looks like Fred Phelps has early dementia. His conversational style is of confabulation. He's evasive, and has a narrow range of emotion, and narrow vocabulary. I bet that wasn't true 10 years ago, although the anger doubtless has been there much longer.
His family appears to be protecting him from contact with the rest of the world. Almost like "don't look behind the curtain!". Again, likely to cover his dementia. Cause? At his age, probably Alzheimer's or vascular dementia (just based on demographics) although it's fun to think it's syphilitic. No evidence for that but I would like to think it.
Shirley appears to be the true leader, as full of herself as anyone I've ever seen.
That convert documentarian is just a strange man. What could have happened to him? A former Unitarian?
Thanks for the link Goz. Now to watch the second one..... if I can stand it.
You are welcome..Yeah,they are a piece of work,aren't they..And Shirley...That is one mentally screwed up woman. Her frozen smile is way past creepy! Just wait till you watch the second one..It's really a show stopper.
I was stunned at what they are planning,really..Of course,if they do leave the country,they will say god is leading the way,etc.
What a pathetic group...Those who escaped the clutches of Psychopath Phelps are bloody lucky.
I can't wait for the book to come out on this family.
