Fred Phelps, the founder of “God Hates Fags” Westboro Baptist Church, has died today according to his son.  Phelps attracted worldwide attention when he and his church began picketing funerals of gay people—including Matthew Sheperd—as well as US military personnel with egregious signs like “God Hates Fags” and “Thank God for 9/11.”

 To read a full obituary, the Guardian has a nice overview.
