Fred Phelps, founder of the Westboro Baptist Church died Wednesday at the age of 84 of natural causes. Phelps and his church were best known for protesting American soldier’s funerals with signs boasting “God Hates Fags!” Now Phelps will find out for himself exactly what God’s position on gay equality is. Not only did Phelps leave behind a life filled with hate, he also left behind a house filled with stuff. And now Fred’s stuff can be your stuff! The Phelps family has already posted some of the items online for a quick estate sale.
