The Lyrics

I'm sure most of the regulars on this site have heard of Fred Phelps, a so-called "minister" from Topeka, Kansas, who, along with his family, have made a practice of picketing at the funerals of US servicemen killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. For many years they have carried protest signs in their hometown and elsewhere attributing all of America's woes to the toleration of gays. I actually spoke to one of them at a public rally and the fellow said that Hurricane Katrina and the California wildfires were caused by homosexuality. Note, he did not say that a "homosexual" lit the fire, but that the condition or lifestyle, or orientation caused it. But, just in case you haven't heard of the Phelpses, here's a brief introduction.
Phelpses, meet the Phelpses
They are stone age in mentality
From Topeka, Kansas
Such a pestilence from sea to sea

Last week, they began to rant and rave
Dancing on a fallen soldier's grave

When you're with the Phelpses
It's a stand in picket line time
A fags malign time
Don't have a gay, old time!

Phelpses, they're the Phelpses
Such a wild and crazy family
With their morbid antics
They're a spectacle, a fright to see

Freddy, see him give that fist a shake
He'd like to burn faggots at the stake

Listen to the Phelpses
They say God hates everybody
Their flags are muddy*
They are a pack of slime
* The Phelps' clan are known to tie US flags to their children's shoes so they can step on them as they walk. After finishing the first stanzas, I realized the Flintstones had a closing theme, so I decided to work it in.

If the media had any sense, they'd stop giving Phelps and his minions the attention they crave.

Agreed, FG! The media can never refrain from showing ANY non-leftist kook! Patrick - Yaba Dada Doo-Doo (Phelps - not he parody!) ;D

I wonder if Fred and crew have ever seen any of these parodies.

From the title, I was expecting this to be about olympic swimming - but this was a much better idea - 555!!!

If only Fred, rather than Mission: Impossible's Jim, had been the Phelps who had things that would "self-destruct in five seconds."

Good parody, right on the money! TV says we have "Islamic" terrorism, the Israeli PM Rabin was assassinated by a "Jewish" terrorist group, and we have "Christian" terrorists like these yahoos who disrupt events. Then there's other terror groups like the Krappy Konehead Kuckoos that somehow are still legal in this country...

Fred apparently has been in the same location since the early 1950's. He received awards from the local NAACP for bringing lawsuits on behalf of Black people who had suffered racial discrimination. When I met him in the 1980's he was campaigning against property taxes. He said that some gays had tried to accost one of his grandchildren in a park that caused him to go on the anti-gay campaign. A lady I know who used to live in Topeka told me that Fred likes to go jogging or bicycle riding in flamboyant, tight fitting outfits, which may have drawn attention from gays. The attacks on fallen soldiers are unforgivable.
