Fred Phelps, founder of the WBC will forever be remembered as one of the most hateful people ever to walk this planet.

Fred Phelps has died. According to CNN the founder of the Westboro Baptist church passed away today Thursday the 20th of March 2014 from natural causes.

While many are calling for a picket at Phelps funeral Stephanie Mott, executive director of the Kansas Transgender Project doesn’t agree telling CNN “hate doesn’t drive out hate.   Thats what Martin Luther King said. It takes love to drive out hate.”

Indeed it does.
