Phelps clan run out of Moore, Oklahoma for saying God intentionally sent tornado that killed 9 kids

The Fred Phelps “God Hates F*gs” clan got literally run out of Moore, Oklahoma yesterday for protesting outside a junior high school where victims of last year’s horrifically-deadly tornado are going to school, as their school, Plaza Towers Elementary, was destroyed.

The clan, members of the Westboro Baptist Church, were protesting the school because they say that God sent the killer F5 tornado to Moore on purpose, with the express intent of killing the town’s children.

Why?  Because America is too pro-gay.

The tornado killed 24 people, destroyed over 1,100 homes, and caused an estimated $2 billion in property damage.  Seven children from Plaza Towers Elementary died in the tornado.

Here is the announcement of the protest from the Phelps’ Web site, housed at


Fred Phelps, the patriarch of the clan, died a few weeks ago.  Clearly, little has changed.

The video of the Phelps’ protest, and the counter protest, below is short and sweet.  The townspeople literally ran the Phelps’ out of town.  And you have to get a load of the people who ran them out.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – the Phelps’ are the best pro-gay publicity ever.
